A comprehensive guide in selecting the right camera for the Video Surveillance system. IP Cameras offer high res around 5MP and supplies a superior video image. There are many options in selecting the best IP Video Security Camera and Video Recorder. Utilize this guide as general information for the IP Video Security System project.

Important Factors in deciding on the best IP Security Camera

• Location

• Main Field of View

• Lighting conditions through the night

• Resolution Requirements

• Aesthetics and Form Factor

IP Cameras will provide enhanced monitoring of one's video security system with higher resolution than traditional analog cameras. Higher resolution means better clarity and details in the camera views with the ability to post-record zoom into critical areas with a much wider view reaching up to 90 degrees.

Location

Outdoor cameras are contained within a weather-proof housing able to withstand the temperatures and moisture of the outdoor environment. Both dome-style and bullet-style cameras are utilized at outdoor facilities and home security.

Indoor cameras tend to be smaller and lighter and are not weatherproof.

Both kinds of cameras may have infrared night vision capabilities if required.

Mounting Location. Consideration of the camera mounting location is set by first and foremost the most optimal view from the camera. Secondarily, but just like important, the capacity to run cabling to the place and also the security of the camera. Cameras get stolen and you can sneak through to them if put into the incorrect location.

Types of Video Surveillance Cameras

The camera selection depends on several factors including the form and form factor of the camera. Dome cameras or Bullet-Style Cameras are the most used today and each offer essentially the same lens and video compression circuitry, so it is a matter of personal choice in packaging.

There are many choices when selecting a surveillance camera style:

Location - Does it be intrusive? Can it be tampered with? Best Viewing Angle?

Infrared Requirements - Bullet-style cameras are available in longer IR lengths (up to 400 feet)

Deterrence Factor - Often the mere spotting of video cameras will deter a security situation. How well are you wanting the cameras to be viewed? Deter or Discrete?

Bullet Cameras are generally put into areas needing higher intensity Infrared and have larger lens for an extended Field of View. Bullet Cameras must be placed out of reach since they are not vandal-proof devices.

Dome Cameras are the most typical camera package and are discrete and could be placed on drop-ceiling tiles very effectively. The dome camera emerges in vandal-proof packages which can be placed in just about any location without fear of theft or damage.
