Indoor CCTV Cameras You Need

 

Let’s take a look at the different area’s you need to explore in order to make an educated decision about which indoor security camera system you need.

  • Video Quality – Most of today’s indoor security cameras offer 1080p video quality which has a sharp picture that’s easy to stream over your Wi-Fi network. There are also some 720p indoor cameras still on the market as well. The picture won’t be as clear, but the pricing will generally be lower.
  • Night Vision – Night vision is an important feature when you’re talking about any security camera. This is what will enable you to see what that noise is that’s coming from another part of your home. The main thing you need to look at here is the range of vision. Some night vision cameras have a shorter range than others.
  • Wide-Angle Lens – The wider the camera lens is, the more you will be able to monitor and view all areas from the front, left, and right of the camera lens. Most cameras have an average of about a 130-degree angle, but some have more and some have less. There are also 360-degree wide-angle lenses as well; however, sometimes on the super-wide-angled cameras, distortion can be a problem.
  • Live Streaming – This option will remotely let you see what’s going on via a video camera in your home in real-time from anywhere and at any time.
  • Two-Way Talk – A two-way talk feature uses a microphone and speaker located on your camera or control panel to communicate with guests, intruders, and even your kids and pets remotely.
  • Alerts – Most indoor cameras have motion and/or sound sensors that will send you an alert if motion and/or sound is detected. And many models can even distinguish or recognize family members and pets in which case an alert will not be sent.
  • Video Storage – There are a wide variety of security cameras that offer some type of video storage, whether that be a cloud storage option or local storage on a microSD card. Some companies charge for this service and others do not. So keep that in mind.
  • Adjustability – Some indoor security cameras offer a fixed camera view and others offer a camera that will pan, tilt, and zoom so you can scan and view a larger area. So while the fixed camera will cost less, you might have to buy more of them to cover the area you want to monitor. However, while a pan and tilt camera seems like it costs more, you might only need one camera to cover that same area, which will ultimately end up costing you less.
  • App – Most of today’s security cameras come with an app you can use to remotely access, monitor, and control your security and home automation equipment from your mobile device and/or laptop/computer.
  • Price – The cost of your new indoor security camera system will vary greatly depending on which equipment options, features, or packages you choose. And that will all depend on your particular security needs, as well as the size of your home and how many areas of coverage you need. Therefore, there’s no real way to give you an average or even a price range for what you might need. You can start by deciding on the features, options, equipment package, and monitoring (if you want that), then do a price comparison for the companies that offer the equipment or product packages you want.
