In its main part, the video surveillance system consists of a camera, a device for managing and storing records (DVR / NVR), a monitor and a certain type of cable, which represents the connection between them. This type of system is also called closed circuit television, abbreviated CCTV. This allows you to monitor an area remotely without actually having to be there.

Choosing a home security camera may seem like a reasonably easy process at first, but with all the different options available, it can get a little confusing. Thanks to advances in video technology, wireless and intelligent technology, there are many types of surveillance systems, each with advantages and disadvantages. Market navigation requires you to first understand some basics about different security systems and how they meet your needs.

Although there are different types of security cameras, the most popular are bullet (directional, bullet-shaped), dome (dome), IP cameras and Wireless (wireless network) cameras. Several differentiating factors that need to be mentioned in security cameras are whether they can be used indoors or outdoors and whether they can be wired or wireless. Directional and dome cameras are named because of their shape and are two of the most commonly used types of CCTV cameras.
