Outdoor motion lights, exit signs, boom
boxes, wired hidden cameras in plants — all of these devices can become an
integral part of a home CCTV equipment security system. Not just limited to
bulky security cams mounted on pole, the term “closed circuit” can mean any
type of wired camera delivering secure images directly to a monitor or PC.
With the appropriate software, you can even broadcast the images live, right
on the internet. The possibilities for CCTV equipment applied to your home
security system are only limited by your imagination.
Install CCTV Equipment Yourself
With the new designs in wired plug and
play devices, it’s simple to connect one camera, or several, to a single DVR
or TV/VCR monitor. Build your own CCTV equipment with components such as a DVR
(digital video recorder) which generally comes with 4, 8, 16, or 32 camera
inputs and allows you to split the screen to view all of the images at once,
or switch to view each zone one at a time. All cameras, lenses, recording
devices, and accessories that make up a CCTV equipment system are easy to
install and affordable to virtually all homeowners.
