Why Home CCTV Cameras?

Home Alarm Systems are definitely important in helping to keep your family and home safe, but unfortunately, home alarm systems will only go so far in protecting you. As soon as the Alarm is tripped, the offending perpetrator has plenty of time to flee the scene, leaving little evidence behind. A well-placed Home CCTV Camera System can complete your home security by providing the needed video footage of the perpetrators to help prevent and convict any would-be criminals.

Home CCTV Cameras, are they needed?

It doesn't matter where you live, your block has probably been affected by burglary, theft or vandalism. According to the FBI, more than 2 Million homeowners in the United States alone experienced burglaries in 2004 and that number keeps growing. How many years will it take before your own home or family is affected?

A Home CCTV Camera System can help deter burglary or theft, because the perpetrators will most likely move on to an easier target.

Indoor Home CCTV Cameras

The Outside Areas of your home are not the only important areas. The inside doorways and living areas can be equally as important, or more important than the outside. Indoor Home CCTV Cameras can provide video of babysitters, children, maids or even home healthcare workers that are inside your home.

Indoor Security Cameras are also available in covert style which look like common household items, such as a motion detector or sprinkler.

Outdoor Home CCTV Cameras

Outdoor Home CCTV Cameras are great for monitoring the outdoor areas of your home. These cameras are commonly used to view the front or back door of your home, watch cars in the driveway, or even watch the children playing in the backyard.

Outdoor CCTV Cameras are weatherproof to prevent moisture entry into the camera, and generally have various ranges of infrared night vision for no-light condition viewing.

PC Based Home CCTV Camera Systems

PC-Based Home CCTV Camera Systems are a great and scalable method to record from your home cctv cameras. With PC-Based CCTV DVR Systems, a DVR Card installs into a Windows PC and records from Home CCTV Cameras onto the harddrive of the PC. You can view your live cameras and playback pre-recorded footage right from any PC in your house or over the internet.

These PC-Based CCTV DVR Cards come in many different varieties and can be found all over the internet. However, be careful in selecting a DVR Card that will suit your needs, because there are many illegally pirated cards on the market which are cheap but have problems with stability and crash often, possibly losing video in the process. Below are several licensed DVR Card/Software combinations that we have tested and have found to be good for various Home CCTV Camera Installations and budget ranges.
