Surveillance Accessories

Selecting CCTV Surveillance Accessories for Your Security System

Those who use or are thinking of using security cameras have undoubtedly considered the importance of setting up safety measures, knowing that even cheap cams can help protect them, the people around them, their property and their valuables. The other factor to consider is to equip the devices with the corresponding CCTV surveillance accessories in order to take full advantage of the complete surveillance system.

CCTV cameras, as opposed to hidden cameras, are placed where people can see them easily, thus discouraging any misdemeanor. In other words, putting up these cameras equipped with security surveillance accessories, either for home use or for workplace use, is primarily a preventive measure against crime. Owners can scare miscreants enough to keep them from committing a felony since they know that they are being watched. When equipped with an audio pick up microphone, security cameras can also detect suspicious conversations or possible threats. Spy cameras with audio recording features can be equipped further with an amplified microphone.

More importantly, these devices are meant for protection. A spy camera strategically placed in the office with a camera bracket can help catch thieves, while a system placed in the parking area, secured with proper camera housing with bracket, can prevent harassment. When connected to a 19-inch widescreen LCD video monitor, a CCTV camera system can yield footage with clarity. Home or business owners can then “patrol” the premises and make sure that nothing is amiss. A 4-channel 2.4 GHz receiver would allow them to have up to four video feeds simultaneously to detect possibly dangerous intruders without a face-to-face confrontation.

However, you can’t realistically keep watch 24 hours a day. Furthermore, pinning down a miscreant without proof is almost impossible. Thus, it is important to include in your surveillance equipment list the recording aspect of the system, which would make it easier for the police to put wrongdoers behind bars.

Some surveillance cameras have a built-in video recorder while others are connected to a separate recording device. Cameras with a DVR can be equipped with an 8, 16 or 32 GB memory card, or one with a larger storage capacity, which can be viewed in a computer later on using a memory card reader.

Cameras hooked up to an external DVR have to be connected using cables with corresponding cable connectors. Depending on your need, there are 25-foot and 50-foot power & video all in one camera cables. Wholesale sellers of surveillance camera accessories often offer longer ones, such as 100-foot or 150-foot power & video all in one camera cables. You can also opt for a 500-foot Siamese RG59 cable in black or white when needed. Before purchasing, you must determine whether you need a female DC power connector or a male DC power connector, and an RG59 BNC compression connector.

Suppliers often have various surveillance system accessories that you can select based on your need and preference, such as a CCTV tester for repairs and maintenance or an HD signal repeater for larger installations. Some security camera systems come in kits for convenience.
