Important features of home security cameras

Below are some important features to consider when choosing home security cameras.

Motion Detection

Motion detection cameras can send you notifications when the camera detects motion in its field of view. These notifications can alert you to suspicious activity so you can monitor the situation.

Field of View

Field of view refers to how wide an angle the camera can record. This is important because it will affect the number of cameras you will need and where they should be placed.


The sound feature can reference your camera, getting sound through a microphone, emitting sound through a speaker, or both. Cameras with both can double as intercoms.

Wi-Fi capabilities

A camera with Wi-Fi can communicate wirelessly with your home network, which can be very handy to install, and is also less susceptible to disconnection because there are no wires to cut.

Night Vision

The distance from which your camera can record images in low-light situations can have a big impact on its effectiveness, as often criminal activity can occur at night.

Moving Camera

A camera that can rotate and/or change its angle can record a larger area than a static camera, and therefore allows you to reduce the total number of cameras needed to monitor a particular area.

The price of a video surveillance system

Obviously, if a camera costs more than the valuable items you are trying to protect, it doesn't serve a purpose. Cost is a factor in every purchase decision. You can order the installation of CCTV cameras on the website store or by calling our managers.
