Shop Smart Security Cameras

Installing a security camera system can be a smart way to protect your home and or small business from security threats of all kinds. The simple sight of surveillance cameras can deter unauthorized entry, motion detection equipment can automatically summon law enforcement, and video recording tech ensures you have a record of events if the worst happens. Pet and nanny cameras, meanwhile, allow you to keep an eye on your pets or babysitter while you are away, with HD video capture and even two way communication to maximize your peace of mind.

Today security cameras are more affordable, more diverse, and more feature rich than ever. Both indoor and outdoor security cameras are available with WiFi and Bluetooth compatibility, and many are easy to integrate into an existing smart home system like Alexa or Google Home. You will also find classic security camera features like built in floodlights and motion sensors. Whatever your security needs are, there is a business or home security system to match.

Choosing The Best Home Security Camera

Consider these factors when evaluating outdoor or indoor security cameras:

Wired vs. Wireless: Wireless security cameras are popular and easy to install in various locations, but they require a reasonably strong WiFi network or Bluetooth signal. Most are powered via rechargeable batteries, or even by standard AA alkaline batteries. Wired security cameras are the tried and true alternative, which trade some convenience for reliability. Power over Ethernet PoE cameras, an increasingly popular option, use a wired Ethernet connection to deliver the cameras data and power simultaneously.

Outdoor vs. Indoor: Outdoor security cameras, such as floodlight cameras and doorbell cameras, feature IP rated weatherproof construction to keep your camera safe throughout a variety of weather conditions. Indoor cameras don’t have the same rugged design, but their price point is typically lower.

Video Quality: The majority of security cameras today feature 1080p Full HD video, with some able to go even higher.

Field of View: A security cams field of view or FOV refers to the width of its viewing angle. Most cameras today feature a horizontal FOV of at least 100 degrees, but wider or narrower FOVs can be a good choice, depending on where you want to mount the camera.

Video Storage Medium: Many security cameras now use cloud storage to store their video footage. For those who prefer local storage, other cameras use microSD cards to store video internally or record wirelessly to a local DVR NVR system.

Night Vision: Almost all security cameras feature some type of night vision capability, typically using infrared LED sensors and producing black and white footage. However, a new wave of color night vision security cameras uses advanced starlight lens technology to capture full color HD video even in low light.

Two Way Audio: Todays security cameras don’t just record audio. If your camera has two way talk, it is easy to project your voice through the camera using its built in speakers or trigger an alarm sound to deter intruders.

Connectivity: Most security cameras today offer remote security options that let users access them from a connected app, so you have always got the option to check in on your home or business and receive notifications no matter where you are.
