What can be done with Home CCTV Cameras?
Home CCTV Cameras might be used for many different reasons, all depending on your particular requirements. Home CCTV Security Cameras can be installed indoors to help keep track of your children, watch the maid or nanny or catch a perpetrator in your house, while outdoor home CCTV Security cameras might be used for watching the yard, front door, garage or driveway. A good combination of the 2 types of cameras might also be employed.
Types of Home CCTV Camera Systems
There are 2 main types of CCTV Camera Systems, PC-Based and Standalone DVR systems. The PC-Based Systems are the most prevalent, because they install into virtually any Windows Based PC to record your cameras directly onto the PC. Standalone DVR Systems are also popular because they do not require a PC and can plug directly into your Television to view or record cameras..
