If you are trying to choose a security camera, the choice can be mind-boggling. Here are some tips to help you out.
- Always prefer high resolution cameras that you can expect to have superior quality to many other cameras on the market. Cameras with 480 lines or more (called high resolution compared to normal resolution 380 and 420 lines cameras) are good value. And there are now super high resolution cameras with over 500 lines of resolution.
- Choose the cameras according to your application. Infrared Weatherproof Bullet Cameras are most popular for outdoor, and dome cameras are popular for indoor applications.
- All of the cameras vary and offer outdoor, indoor, or infrared capabilities. This will be explained to you when looking at different cameras.
- Ask about the most popular cameras, with high ratings from customers and installers.
Consider the advantages of a dome camera.
The different styles of domes include infrared domes, indoor domes, outdoor domes, vandal proof domes, and pan tilt zoom controllable domes. Classic “smoked” dome cameras offer an additional degree of surveillance as friends, customers, employees, and burglars have a difficult time seeing where the lens is actually pointing. The smoked cover does not affect picture quality.
Consider the advantages of a pro box camera.
These cameras are known for their high video quality. Pro box cameras are often found in banks, supermarkets, convenience stores, etc.
