What to look for when purchasing Home Security Cameras

May 31, 2014

Security Cameras have become very streamlined. If a particular feature is a major selling point, the rest of the industry adopts it in order to compete. These cameras have very similar features, so we also evaluated the quality of the services they come packaged with to help us rank them. Many of these services set up protection and equipment for you, while others allow you to customize your service based on your needs and protection expectations. We used the following criteria to judge which cameras and services rank the highest.


Camera Features
The individual home security cameras included in these residential security systems include a basic set of essential features, incorporating color with black-and-white recording functions, infrared LEDs for night vision monitoring and motion sensors for selective recording. A high-resolution IP security camera or HD-SDI will give the best picture quality, helping you to identify critical details on the video feed. Whether you're protecting your business from thieves or looking to catch a neighborhood vandal in the act, high quality outdoor security cameras are essential.


Monitoring Services
Theft can happen at any time of day, which is why having 24-hour monitoring is critical and requisite for any camera in or around the home. The best security camera systems allow you to watch the video feed in real time or playback previous footage on the internet and on your smartphone. While audio-recording capabilities aren't always included, a few cameras utilize audio recording and go one step further by allowing for two-way intercom communication between the camera and an internal speaker.


Security Devices
We dug into the details regarding the specific features that each camera offers, but we also examined them in the context of a total home security package. Complete security cameras include several additional types of peripherals that help you protect your home from all angles. Some services offer home automation, which automatically links your cameras to temperature and smoke sensors and provides an easy way to track and prevent accidents to protect your family and assets. We took all of these aspects of home security systems into account.


Help & Support
You hope that you'll never have to deal with customer support. But in those instances when there is a break-in or malfunctioning equipment, it's an added benefit to be able to reach a service through several different channels. We at Home Security Cameras Sydney are always there for you. 

Choosing a home surveillance system can be complicated so let us help you choose the right system for you. Finding a security camera will help you monitor your home, but we found that it is more efficient to fully protect your loved ones and valuables with a complete security service that will safeguard you against every danger that could enter your home.
