CCTV Security Camera News in Da Nang Vietnam

Home Surveillance Cameras


Every 14 seconds, a burglary takes place in America. Typically breaking in between 10 AM and 3 PM—not at night, as you might expect—burglars take advantage of an empty house while you’re at work, gaining entry through windows or back doors, though 34 percent of burglars come right through the front door. A homeowner or renter should take the necessary steps to defend against intruders, including alarm systems, effective door locks and big, mean-looking dogs. A great addition to any well-defended home is a set of home surveillance systems or nanny cams.

As a first line of defense, a good home security system is going to need outdoor surveillance. Many home surveillance cameras are equipped to withstand outdoor elements, but often the indoor systems contain delicate microphones or electrical equipment that won’t take a smattering of rain. The Lorex LW1012 Camera System is a basic, all-weather unit that is perfect for the beginning security hound. The wireless receiver makes installation easy, and the camera’s night-vision capability provides premium security at all hours. Drawbacks include a lack of remote internet viewing and a fixed lens (no zoom), but this is one of the most economical choices available.

With the same basic concept as a nanny-cam, modern indoor surveillance cameras vary in price and capability. As a bonus, an indoor surveillance system affords the ability to track conniving company of any type—a baby- or house-sitter, a repairman or even welcomed party guests. A solid choice is the D-Link Securicam Network DCS-5300G. The DCS-5300G offers web-based monitoring while you’re away with streaming MPEG4 compression. You can also listen to sounds picked up by the built-in microphone. Fully motorized, it offers remote pan, tilt and zoom controls allowing you to view 270 degrees horizontally and 90 degrees vertically, all with a 4x zoom. Compatibility and connectivity issues with network settings can be a drawback for this device. There’s no tool to get the camera connected to an outside computer. Furthermore, this is strictly an indoor camera. If you want to keep it outside, you’ll have to buy a special camera enclosure, like the D-Link DCS-70, which includes a built-in heater and blower to keep your equipment safe and dry.

A home surveillance camera is a fine way to protect your home from the threats that are out there. Modern cameras come with easy installation options and a range of price tags. Just make sure you get all three categories covered—outdoor, indoor, and a recording device—and you’ll have a well-defended home.
