The Right Cameras Make the Difference
When planning out your video surveillance system at your property, the locations of potential cameras will help to determine just what kind of camera you will need for each location. For example, if you had vandalism that occurred overnight, you will likely want to have a camera equipped with night vision or infrared so that you can see the activity that happens. If you want to have high resolution for your video feeds then you will likely want to have an IP camera in your system. There are often several choices for cameras for a given location, but only one or two of them will be the best choice.
Recording The Evidence
While having a video surveillance system at your property will do a lot of good, the system isn’t complete until you have the means to record the video feeds from those cameras that you had us install. This allows you to review footage when you see something amiss, and you can even preserve the video footage if you need it as evidence for prosecution. And while you are recording things, be sure that you secure your IP cameras by changing the default credentials that originally came with the camera. Having an unsecured camera feed does nothing but let everyone know that you have a security camera and provide them with ways of circumventing them.
While wireless cameras do have some advantages, they also have disadvantages. One of those disadvantages is that anyone can pick up on the wireless signal from the camera and intercept it, as well as overpower that signal to give you a different feed. Wired cameras are more secure, especially when using ethernet cameras that get their power from the ethernet cable itself, meaning you have fewer wires to deal with.
