Digital video recorder security

CCTV DVR or Closed Circuit Television has become a large part of modern day security systems. While the usage of these advanced cameras has only become widespread in the past few years, they first came into existence in the UK and in the US sometime in the 1960s and the1970s. In the 1970s CCTV kits became more advanced as they were incorporated with switchboxes. This allows the person manning the cameras to operate and see the action perceived by multiple cameras.
It was not until the mid 90ís that the DVR or Digital Video Recorder came into existence. By now, the images captured by surveillance cameras can be recorded for playback. Security has become stronger and the chances of catching criminals have infinitely increased. Authorities can also easily check the time and the date of the crimes for faster progress of investigation.

How to Buy Best CCTV security system for Your Home
If you donít know where to start looking for the right surveillance cameras, you can use the following buying tips:
Consider indoor and outdoor security.
There are different types of security cameras. There are those that can be installed outside your home. They are different from indoor cameras in such a way that they are more resistant to external harsh elements. They can be strategically placed close to the entrances and exits of your home.
Indoor cameras can be placed in the areas of the home commonly frequented by your family members. If you have a child at home in the care of a nanny and you worry about his or her safety, you can always opt for those covert-type of surveillance cameras. They look like normal household objects and nobody would suspect that these are actually surveillance cameras.
If you want to know which type is the best option, you might want to ask an expert. An expert can go to your house and check your homeís layout so he can decide the best type of security system. Also check the footage resolution. Opt for security cameras that require zero maintenance.
Wireless systems might require regular maintenance. It is also imperative that you check the battery life of these equipments since most of them have exhaustible battery life. The wired ones, on the other hand, are more ideal for home use because they require zero maintenance. However, they are a bit more difficult to install if you have a finished home. They are usually needed to be integrated in the blueprint of the house.
CCTV helps a lot in keeping us secure. Couple that up with DVR technology to make sure that you have evidence to back you up. Get your 4 channel dvr now and start making your home a lot more secure.
