Allot of the times people are mistaken thinking that if they purchase any camera it will do the job, what allot of people miss is that you need to take into consideration a lot of factors when purchasing a camera and what its overall intention are.

I want my home or office security camera to:

  • Monitor a particular area that has personal valuables or belongings
  • Identify intruders walking into a particular area that is restricted
  • Detect human body temperature
  • Detect an animal that intrudes
  • Clear Night time vision
  • Be able to recognise some ones face

These are just some of the important things that customers are demanding our resellers to provide them with.

But it’s not about spending lots of money on an expensive camera or purchasing the most expensive brand either.

You can purchase a reasonable price camera that has the best of everything, Resolution, Day and Night time viewing and identifying and monitoring all assets, regardless for your home or business.

Some branded cameras also support smart IR functionality to reduce the intensity of the infrared illumination helping with ghosting effects in extremely dark scenarios and better imaging of objects that are located at different distances from the camera.

Keeping in mind that the weather also plays a large factor when cameras are involved in low light conditions.
If it is raining then it looks like small grains are passing through your field of view of what the camera is looking at making your picture quite hard to see in adverse weather conditions.
