Features To Consider When Buying Home Security Cameras
Analogue versus Digital Cameras
Determine whether to buy analogue or digital wireless cameras. If you are looking to monitor your premises with real-time streaming videos, IP cameras are the way to go.

Wireless cameras are easier to install and set up. You can also easily move them from one location to another. Wired cameras require extra resources especially when installing, like drilling of holes, labour, cables and so on.
Security cameras come in different styles. Most common include the bullet and dome design. Bullet cameras are cylindrical and wall-mounted. Dome cameras are usually ceiling mounted.
Outdoor Versus Indoor Cameras
Outdoor cameras are usually designed to withstand harsh outdoor environment such as rain and dust. They are
usually weather resistant and rugged.
Indoor cameras are easy to setup and can also be used to monitor children and pets.
Visible Versus Hidden
Choose between a visible or a discrete security camera. Visible security cameras will definitely deter burglars. Hidden cameras can be used in certain areas such as homes, or retail shops to monitor unwanted behavior.
