DVR and security camera what features should I look for?

An important feature to consider when purchasing a CCTV for security monitoring and a DVR for evidence gathering system is the capacity of the system as follows:

  • At least 1 Gigabyte of storage capacity which will provide you with roughly 15 to 30 days of recording depending on the number of cameras and recording rate.
  • A good camera resolution of at least 600 TVL (Television lines) the higher the number the clearer the images delivered by the camera sensor. A high definition camera will require a large amount of storage space, but a lore detailed image.
  • A day/night capable video camera, which means the camera will have infrared LED illuminators for night viewing. It's worth noting that cameras switch to b/w mode during the night, also, the higher the resolution (TVL) the clearer the image during night recording, and the larger the sensor the more sensitivity to dark conditions.
  • DVR units vary in features and an important one is the total number of FPS (frames per second) they can record, as it determines the number frames each camera can record, the higher the FPS value, the better the DVR processing. Another consideration is the bandwidth specification of a DVR box.

CCTV security camera wiring and installation guidelines for installer Services in Manhattan Beach, California

A few suggestions when installing or wiring a security camera in a residential or commercial setting follows

  • Mount video cameras in a location clear of tree branches and out of reach of would-be intruders
  • Aim cameras in a way that one camera will look into the other somehow to "protect" the other camera should someone try to tamper or try to remove the other camera
  • Make sure at night the cameras will not be exposed to light shining into the lens, unless the camera is designed for the purpose
  • When aiming cameras into constantly moving objects (as in outdoors) set the recording area to minimize the always changing movement of branches of else the DVR will constantly record motion which is not considered valuable evidence.
  • Whenever possible, add extra lighting means to aid in the illumination of night scenes
  • Install cameras with protective enclosures in high crime areas or those spots where a camera may be susceptible to tampering.
  • Run cables far away from accessible areas and if possible right into the protected building area.
