Security cameras are one of the best ways to start protecting your property. That includes in terms of security and safety. But when it comes to purchasing security cameras you need to make sure you get the right type of security camera. Today we are going to go over seven different types of security cameras that you might encounter.
Security camera systems have trouble seeing in the dark. Even with image enhancement and infrared light, you won’t be able to make out everything. But being able to make out what is going on in the darkness can me the difference between catching a criminal and letting one get away. So how do you see in the dark with your security camera?
If you have ever looked around while at a big business, chances are that you have seen a dome security camera. These little devices resemble a black dome that is affixed to a small mounting area. It may take some time to spot one of these because they are pretty discreet but they work very well. But that doesn’t really tell you much about what these cameras are.
Traditional security cameras used purpose-built cables to transmit data from each camera to the recorder. What people realized is that these cables were easy to damage and came with so many different proprietary connections that something needed to be done. Not to mention, the fact that they had limited ability to transmit enhanced features and high definition imagery.
Security cameras are a great way to protect your property but no one camera is right for every application. Choosing the right security camera can make the difference between your property being covered and having blind spots. In more extreme conditions, it can also mean the difference between a functional camera and one that will fail.
