What is the Best Home Security Camera System?

Did you know that one of the best deterrents against home burglary is a simple security camera? Law enforcement officials and professional burglars will tell you that one outside your home sends a clear signal to would-be burglars to stay away. It is fact that a security camera posted outside your home by your front door can do more to deter a burglary than any other single item.

Burglars certainly don’t want to get caught. If there is a video of a burglar doing his deed, chances improve by 50% that he will get caught by law enforcement.

Some people are of the opinion that no matter what kind you have they are all just as effective. We don’t agree with that. A hidden camera doesn’t send the same message as one that can be seen. Hidden security cameras have their place. But if you’re going to place one security camera around your home, make sure that it is visible.

Some cameras are hidden inside wall clocks, electrical boxes and even one that looks like a stone. They can operate up to one year in standby mode. They are perfect for outdoor locations because they are all waterproof and are ideal for areas where there is no electrical outlet because their battery powers them. They record to a 2 GB ST card but you can use the 16 GB card for more capability. It can record in low light conditions which is an added bonus for outdoor security. Those are the hidden cameras used for home security.

But to be really effective, we maintain that a camera shouldn’t be hidden. It should be visible so that would-be burglars can see that they are about to be recorded. That in and of itself acts as a deterrent. There is a security camera system that has four cameras so you can cover a greater area of your house. They have wireless transmission up to 300 feet and have infrared capability to allow you to capture video in complete darkness.

Surprisingly, some of the best home security cameras are really not cameras at all, but fake look-alikes that do not work as cameras. They are so realistic looking some of them have flashing red LED lights. One model even pans right and left to simulate real security camera action.

So if you’re going to spend the money on them, consider getting fake ones even before you buy a hidden security camera. The visual image of the camera acts as a deterrent to burglars, which is exactly what you want.
