Cyberbuzz Security Cams

Buzz the Bee here wanting to talk to you a little about security cameras. Cameras have become extremely popular over the last several years. They can be found almost everywhere in businesses, ATM machines and even in residential homes. People feel the sense of safety knowing that their stuff is constantly being watched. No matter where you are, most likely you are on camera. The technology on security camera have progresses immensely over the last few years. Many older systems are ready to be updated and they are not very old. When looking to buy make sure you identify what your basic needs are and then project how those needs may change in just the next couple years.

An investment in cameras is well worth it, if the system you choose is a good fit for your need.The overall cost on a good security system may vary dependent on the purpose of that it is needed for. A business may want several cameras catching multiple views where a home may only want one or two. To save on cost figure out what angles you would want to have covered and how many cameras it will take. This will help choose the right system for your needs and keep you in budget. I find it helpful to draw a diagram of the areas to be covered.

Also name the areas, so when you are setting up the system it is right there for you. Also plan on where you want to put the NVR if your system has one. It would be a good idea to keep it in an area where you can view back recordings and such.

Identify the type of system that you will need to cover the area. There are many different systems on the market. There is analog, POE and wireless to name a few. Analog are older style CCTV cameras that use Siamese cables for power and video. POE stands for power over Ethernet or basic cat 5 cable. Wireless cameras are also popular, just keep in mind they need power and some of them require plugging into an outlet. Other types of wireless cameras operate on batteries that need to be changed when depleted.

Remote viewing is now a regular feature on cameras. If you connect your cameras to the internet, you can view them on mobile devices like a tablet or cell phone. Newer style cameras systems allow you to speak and listen through an App. This is a good feature for many different reasons.

No matter the reason it is always a good idea to invest in a security camera system.
