For these applications, the cameras capture surveillance footage of incidents as they happen. While valuable, what these solutions offer is passive video surveillance. With the captured footage, you can only react to whatever incident occurred after the fact. As technology marches on, we don’t need to rely on the old way of doing things. Better exists.

Surveillance systems run the gamut from complex and intricate NVR kits, with all the bells and whistles, to simple bundles that require little more than a hub with a camera or two and Wi-Fi connectivity. For me, the barometer for how well a simple surveillance system is designed is if I can get everything up and running in less than ten minutes, since a big part of simplicity is ease of use. In this category is the

Choosing the right cameras is only a small part of putting your surveillance system together. At least as important, in the long term, is deciding how you’ll record and store your video. The best solution will depend on your needs and how you anticipate them changing. While large deployments at government institutions or campuses will usually depend on server-based solutions, we’ll be focusing on household and small business needs. Long gone are the days when surveillance video was recorded to a video cassette. A surveillance

More than in most other applications, surveillance video devices need to be specially suited to their environment. Unlike a camera used for other purposes, surveillance gear rarely allows you to make changes to the environment you’re recording, so it must be able to work in the conditions in which it’s installed. Most installations won’t allow you to add or remove light sources to accommodate the needs of your camera, so you should know what features to look for and how they’ll effect your recording.
