Home Security Cameras & Commercial CCTV Cameras

The 5 Most Important Features of an Outdoor Home Security Camera

  1. The Camera lens must be varifocal so when the CCTV Camera is mounted the lens can be adjusted to obtain the exact view you http://alertwatch.ie/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Hikvision-Camera-4.jpgrequire.

  2. Choose a True Day/Night Security Camera (not an electronic day/night). This will provide a higher quality resolution picture during the day & night.

  3. Check the Camera has infra red (IR). The camera should have IR for night time viewing but there is not much point in having a 80 meter IR camera with a standard 2.8 – 11mm lens, you would need a 5-50mm lens to see the 80 meters. So couple the IR distance with the lens of the camera.

  4. Check the brand of CCD (charged couple device) in the CCTV Camera. CCTV Manufacturers such as Samsung, Hikvision etc use their own brand CCD, a lot of branded cameras will use a Sony CCD which is also good. The higher quality CCD, the crisper the image and the better resolution on the CCTV camera.

  5. Check the resolution of the camera. Any standard resolution camera should have a resolution of 600 – 700 TVL (TV Lines). I would put the make of the CCD, whether the camera is True day/night ahead of whether the camera is 600 or 700TVL.  If choosing a Megapixel solution opt for a 1.3MP quality camera or higher. With an IP megapixel solution, make sure the NVR can record the camera at e.g. 1.3 Megapixel and not at a lower resolution.
Extra Tip: Don’t be fooled into, the bigger the camera the better the camera, it comes down to the overall specification.
