How to Choose the Best Home Security Camera
Choosing the right home security camera is very important to ensure your home and family is protected at all times. In addition to safety and affordability, there are several factors to consider when deciding on what to install, including the location of the camera, the resolution, size, storage, if it is wired or wireless, and more. In this blog, Moore Protection goes into detail about each of these factors to help you with the decision-making process.
Location, location, location! Do you want to invest in outdoor security cameras, indoor security cameras, or both? Homeowners may want to monitor near their front door, yard, side of their home, garage, and backyard. Indoor security cameras may be placed in hallways, in a nursery, and common living spaces. For outdoor cameras, it is important to make sure that they can withstand weather conditions.
Look at Resolution
Quality resolution is essential for being able to monitor more clearly. Whether you’re considering 1080p or are interested in a more high definition camera with 4K, it is important to make a decision based on your preferences.
Consider Camera Size
There are different types of home security cameras that are available in different sizes. At Moore Protection, we offer CCTV cameras, bullet cameras, covert cameras, dome cameras, high definition cameras, and night vision cameras. You need to decide if you want your camera to be smaller in order to be more discrete or if you prefer them to be visible.
View Storage Options
When the camera is recording footage, where is it stored? Storage typically consists of local and cloud. Local footage can be recorded onto a hard drive or memory card. The cloud stores footage on a server.
Wired or Wireless
Lastly, you have to determine whether you want to install wired or wireless home security cameras. Wired home security cameras are connected to a power source and the internet. They are more difficult to install than wireless cameras, which use Wi-Fi to connect. Wireless cameras are typically battery-operated, so it is important to know when to recharge or replace the battery.
