Why You Should Consider a Video Camera Surveillance System
Video Camera Surveillance Systems are becoming more and more popular because they provide homeowners and business owners with an excellent way to keep an eye on things without the need to be present. Through a mobile app or remote desktop monitor, it has never been easier to see what is happening at home, or at the office or shop without being there.
Modern HD (High Definition) cameras are able to capture very detailed images, allowing identification of people involved in criminal activity.
With a properly designed system, you can have peace of mind that everything is okay. When an alarm is triggered you will receive a notification. By opening an app on your smartphone, in a few seconds, you are able to see exactly what the situation is. Cameras that are visible for people to see are also a good deterrent to any “would be” criminals. They will think twice about breaking in or vandalizing property.
What is a Video Camera Surveillance System?
A Video Surveillance system is a complete system that would include a number of video surveillance cameras, connected to an NVR (Network Video Recorder). The NVR is a software program that records and stores surveillance video from the IP cameras in a digital format.
IP (Internet Protocol) Cameras are connected to the NVR by means of CAT5e Cable. Typical NVR’s come in 4 channel, 8 channel or 16 channel, and one of these systems is usually sufficient for most homes or small businesses.
Now that you have decided that installing a Video Camera Surveillance System is something you need to do, recording options need to be considered. A Network Video Recorder (NVR) is an efficient and cost-effective way to manage recorded video from the cameras that you have installed.
The NVR needs to be sized for the number of cameras that you have. Most home and small business owners will find that a 4, 8, or 16 channel system is sufficient for their security needs. These systems are designed to digitally store recorded video, and then replace the data (record over), once the storage limit has been reached.
There are an extensive range and style of cameras available. Variable focus lenses allow fine-tuning of the picture.
Vandal-proof, motion-activated, and IR (Infra-Red) cameras are other options.
There are cameras designed specifically for indoor use, outdoor use, or both.
Then there is the style of camera, with various designs of Dome Cameras and Bullet Cameras being the most popular.
- Dome Camera for video surveillance
- Bullet Camera for video surveillance
Accessing Your System
Accessing your system is by means of one of the following two ways:
- Local Office – Accessing the system and viewing the cameras through a monitor or monitors.
- Remote access – Through a smart device (smart phone, tablet, or remote computer)
