Posted in Special Offer: Home & Kitchen Decor by Rosa
With the rising rate of crimes around the world, it is becoming an undeniable choice to install a security system in your home or office. In general a security system nowadays means a video surveillance system. It typically consists of a security camera installed in the desired area of surveillance and the camera is connected to a set of display unit mostly a set of computer monitors to keep an eye on the happenings around the camera.
The question with these security systems soon becomes "what camera should I choose?", and it usually comes down to the following two choices (there are more, but these two are the main ones).
Bullet Type Camera
The name typically comes from the bullet like structure it hones. It is a very basic model for a security camera and cheap as well. The shape can sometimes be rectangular also but mostly cylindrical. They cannot be angled remotely in different directions but you can manually direct it to the desired place where it is most needed. Nowadays this model comes with a built-in zoom technology and sometimes pan-tilt too. But the basic models are widely preferred, particularly when it comes to a less covered area like a small shop or the entrance of your home.
As the name suggests, the outer cover of the camera is dome-shaped. This keeps the camera protected from a lot of hazardous agents. The dome cover can be transparent, smoke colored, black colored and sometimes mirrored. These cameras produce a psychological impact on the thieves sometimes holding them off from perpetration because they know you are watching them.
Whatever option you choose, just the mere fact that you're having these cameras installed means you're doing better than the 80-90% of homeowners who don't actively protect their property. And although this doesn't mean you're totally secure, at least you're more safe than you were before.
