A security camera is a simple way to keep an eye on your spaces. There are many different versions, some come with a set of multiple cameras while others are stand-alone units. The prices vary depending on the specific features a security camera has and the brand it is from. There are options that are in the lower ranges to others which cost a lot.
An easy way to keep an eye on your space is via security cameras. These are also known colloquially as CCTV cameras.
There are many different versions available today that have their own set of features. Given that we are in the age of wireless devices, WiFi-based security cameras have become a common availability. With these ones, one can access the visuals over their smartphone from pretty much anywhere in the world. These are also used to keep an eye on work staff if needed.
There are also security camera versions that are set up with the main console that has hard drives which are recorded onto. They keep a certain amount of time depending on how one has set the system up. Once the space starts to fill up the system deletes old footage, this could be footage from the past month or week.
Standalone security cameras can have an SD card in them for storage. One can choose the amount of space they would need and get the card that works for them.
Most if not all security cameras today have high-quality video, one could get anything from 720p to 4K or more. A lot also feature the infrared beams so that they have night vision as well.
Depending on what security camera you purchase, it is also possible to move it around remotely from your smartphone. You could also choose one that has a two-way communication system, with a small speaker built onto the camera so the people can hear you at that end.
Motion detection is also available to customers, this means the camera will start recording only when something or someone moves; also sending a notification to you when that does happen.
As a lot of security cameras are placed outside as well, the cameras are made to be weather resistant. This means there is higher durability and your camera can handle the various weather patterns around the year.
The brands producing security cameras are many, with the known ones including Google's Nest, Xiaomi Mi, Hikvision, Canary, WD, Brickhouse, D-Link and Garmin to name only a few
The prices of security cameras vary a lot. This largely depends on the specific type and brand; a system with multiple cameras from a good brand would cost a lot while a stand-alone camera from Xiaomi Mi could be in the lower-mid ranges.
