Studies show that cameras deter crime.
With that in mind, you can build a home security surveillance camera system
simply and easily by breaking down the installation into two areas: the cameras
and the recorder. For the camera, ask yourself a few questions: do you need to
install them indoor, outdoor, or hidden; how many units; do need to run cable (a
wired system) or do you want a cordless installation (wireless); and finally, by
determining the size of the viewable area you want, you will be better able to
select the proper lens type.
Now add the Recorder to the Home
Security Surveillance Camera
The next step is deciding on the recording
device: do you want a DVR, PC-DVR, or VHS? How many cameras will the recorder
need to support? What kind of quality recording do you need? Do you need remote
viewing capabilities? Motion detection recording? Take a look at a couple of
complete home security video surveillance camera systems to get an idea of what
a full set-up entails. You can purchase a pre-designed system or buy components
and build from scratch.
