What goes on when you're not around? Consider these questions when
choosing a reliable surveillance system for your home or business.
1. Large or small space?
For daily check ins on Fido, or a sleeping baby, you don't need all the works. A discreet, Wi-Fi enabled camera that you can put anywhere and monitor from your phone or tablet will get the job done.
Larger spaces like a store or backyard require a high-res, wide-angle or PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) camera so you can pan and zoom without compromising image quality.Shop Wi-Fi Cameras Shop PTZ Cameras
2. Indoor or outdoor?
For inside, consider a durable design for industrial environments, like factories and kitchens, and elements you'd need to protect against, like sawdust or grease.
If you're concerned about what goes on outside, invest in a rugged, weather-resistant camera that can withstand extreme temperatures and conditions.Shop Indoor Cameras Shop Outdoor Cameras
3. Wireless or wired?
For more casual, discrete use, a wireless camera is the way to go. Make sure you have a power source nearby for the system hub and a reliable Wi-Fi connection because the footage won't record if it drops.
Wired cameras deliver a clearer, more reliable picture than their wireless counterparts. If you're able to install wires in your building consider this type of camera for continual surveillance.Shop Wireless Cameras Shop Wired Cameras
4. Cloud or local?
On-the-go? Wi-Fi-enabled cameras with cloud storage allow you to check in from your phone or tablet. More advanced systems use a DVR (similar to the device you'd use to watch TV) or a Digital IP where the footage is stored on the actual camera.Shop Cloud Cameras Shop Local Cameras
