Being able to watch the things going around your home or office when are far off the perimeter, keeping your eye closely on your kids, pets, loved ones and valuables is the beauty of a surveillance system which comes in handy for your home smart. You can monitor things in real time even when are distance away from the scene. Modern surveillance systems come with features and assorted accessories that pave that makes it possible for you to not only monitor, but also automate hubs.

All surveillance systems are equal but some are more equal than the others. it helps you keep your home and office smart and cool by checking in on things when you are not. But one thing you should know is that performance and security features vary from system to system. A handful devices come with motion detection which the system uses to detect or sense motion and signal it by sending you a notification to check it out, thus making it possible for to quickly spot and monitor activities of fishy sort.

With my experience operating and installing different types of surveillance systems including intercom IP security gadgets, it is pretty clear that most people want devices that not only add security values to their home, but also keeps it cool and green. Others just want simple devices just for surveilance.You can always go for what you deem suitable for your home or office. Whatever be the case, here are a couple more things to look out for when purchasing a camera or full surveillance system.

Field View

The field view is the amount of space that a camera can cover. Before purchasing a camera, find its view which is usually indicated on the pack or camera case in degree. With that you will know how many cameras to use for a scene.


Camera resolution determine the video or image quality delivered by a camera. Modern devices support high definition video quality  which paves the way for you to spot an object clearly. With HD cameras you can easily identify people’s faces.


The camera type you will be going for is also factored by where the camera will be positioned or installed. Your goal might be to secure your balcony, backyard, porch, car park or garden. For open or outdoor spaces, you need a rugged camera that stand the test of harsh summer and winter. While some cameras are built to offer such capability others are not. 4MP WDR IR Bullet 2.7-12mm are designed to stand whatever the environment throws at it. It works for indoor and outdoor surveillance.

Intrusion and Detection

For basic security, you can choose a camera of any sort for your home or office. But in the event that you need devices to watch over a property for maximum protection, you need first-rated cameras with tripwire, intrusion, abandoned and missing,  scene change, audio, face detection capabilities. 4MP WDR IR Bullet also serve that purpose.
