Essential Components of Residential Security Cameras

Every person’s situation is unique. Someone who lives in the countryside has many different needs from a person who lives in the city. Furthermore, with a wide variety of video surveillance systems available on the market, just sorting out the different options can be tricky! When you considering a system, be sure to check for the following:

Budget

You likely do not need the most expensive option, but this is one of those investments where if you pay a little more upfront, it will more than benefit you in the long run. But here at Locksmith Pros, you won't have to compromise to keep within your budget: our locksmith service prices are the cheapest on the market!

Field of View

This determines how much of your property can be viewed from a single camera. Remember that the larger the field is, the less detail it will have. You need to strike a balance between detail and covering the important spots of your property with the right number of cameras.

Motion Sensors

This is a must-have regardless of your budget. Motion detection allows you to be alerted when there is activity on your property so you can assess the best reaction to the situation.

Resolution

With improvements in digital technology, getting high-resolution cameras have become less and less expensive. The higher the resolution, the better it will be for you as you can more clearly identify the nature of what’s happening. Just as you do not want to call the police on your son who arrived home late and forgot his key so too do you want to be able to see the face of any particular threat.

Night Vision

There is no clear pattern of when your house is more vulnerable. Some experts say during the day, some at night. Either way, you want to be able to have a clear field of view regardless of the time of day.

Sound

Cheaper cameras do not come equipped with microphones, but sound can be especially helpful if you are trying to keep track of your children or pets. Something might look normal on camera, but once you hear the sound be a cause for alarm. Your camera can also double as an intercom so you can provide instructions or warnings to whomever.

Wireless Cameras

These days many systems can work with your home Wi-Fi system. This prevents individuals from being able to cut the connection and also afford the opportunity for you to monitor your home’s situation via your mobile phone or computer.

Pan and Tilt Cameras

One great option is cameras that rotate across a certain field of vision and will then hone in on any movement that they detect. These types of cameras can save you money as they can cover a larger field while then being able to target anything suspicious.
