Types of surveillance equipment
You have your camera -- great! But there are all types of
products out there, and your home surveillance equipment
needs will of course differ from the products designed for
airport surveillance. Whatever kind of system you have,
complete it with one or more of the following:
- Time lapse VCR -- This is a standard component of your
office or home surveillance equipment package. You can
plug in your wireless receiver to the VCR and instantly
start recording footage.
- Motion sensors -- You can customize your system to only
record when motion is detected around the area under
surveillance to your VCR.
- Vehicle tracking device -- If you have covert
surveillance equipment needs, this is for you. Track the
company car or a private vehicle.
- Bug detector -- This is an integral part of a counter
surveillance system, as it allows detection of wireless
- Battery packs -- If you have a miniature camera, this a
must for any micro surveillance equipment application. It
eliminates the need for any wires that would give away the
Surveillance for a high-tech world
As our world becomes more digitalized, your options for
surveillance video equipment become more multifunctional.
You may choose to invest in the newer digital options, such
as a digital video recorder (DVR). If you have a
multiplexer, IP ready equipment, and more high resolution
images, consider upgrading to a DVR from the standard time
lapse VCR. It all depends on the level of investment you are
willing or need to make in your equipment.
You’ve taken the steps to protect your home or office
with a security camera. Now make sure you get the most out
of that camera with other related equipment and accessories.
Whether your security needs are basic, covert, advanced, or
high tech, there is equipment to make your camera better.
