Home Video Surveillance Systems

from: Maxx Home Guides

In their initial state of development, video surveillance systems were most often installed in medium to large businesses. Currently, however, they're becoming much more commonly used for home security. Video surveillance security systems, also called Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) monitor specific areas around the home, helping to protect occupants from burglars and thieves.

A monitor is a key component of a video surveillance setup, since they feed the video from the cameras of the system. The monitors are most often black and white, featuring a higher resolution than a standard TV set. They also vary in size and resolution, although standard resolution is between 500 and 1000 lines.

Another important part of a video system is the camera. An important part of installing a home video surveillance system is the strategic placement of the cameras around the outside of the home and in the most vulnerable areas. They should be set up in areas and in such a way as to make them difficult to see. Cameras are the workhorse of the system, since they're always on and they send the video transmissions to the monitors regularly.

Coaxial cables are are part of a video surveillance systems and as they transfer the video signals from the camera to the monitor. These cables are available in a variety of sizes and price ranges. They're available at your local electronics store and it pays to buy the best quality you can. Even though your home video surveillance system will include coaxial cables, it's possible you may need more depending on how much area you have to cover.

Home video surveillance systems also use switchers that provide the option to run multiple camera feeds into one monitor. A switcher cycles through feeds unless it detects movement going on around a camera. If the switcher detects any type of movement, it will automatically lock in to the camera that has detected the movement.

Some video surveillance systems available for home usage make full use of VCRs. These systems use a VCR to record live video feeds that you program and are handy if you do a lot of travelling since the VCR can capture a break-in as it's happening. If you end up in court, your video tape vidence could prove to be invaluable.

The combination of a monitor and video camera for a home video surveillance system is one of the best ways to catch burglars and break-ins. Now that they've become quite affordable, they've been installed in thousands of homes throughout North America. If you're in the market for a ideal way to protect your home, you should do some research into home video surveillance systems.
