So how to assess a good camera system

  1. Channels – the number of cameras the system will support.  For example, an 8 channel system has 8 ports in the back to connect 8 cameras.  However the system may only come with 4 cameras, so in this case, you would need to but 4 more cameras to complete the system.
  2. ResolutionIP security camera resolution is the total number of pixels that make up an image, which is measured by the image width and height.For example, the width and height of a 2MP image are 1920 and 1080 respectively. By multiplying these two figures together, you will get 2,073,600, which is the total number of pixels contained in the image.Also, the height of an image is used to symbolize the resolution and thus, you can say 1080p resolution when talking about an image with 2 million pixels.The most common resolution for home security camera in the market includes 2MP (1080p), 4MP (1440p), 5MP (1920p) and 8MP (4K/2160p).

    Take the following security camera resolution comparison chart into account:

    > 1080p is 1920×1080 resolution @2,073,600 pixels
    > 4MP is 2560×1440 resolution @3,686,400 pixels
    > 5MP is 2560×1920 resolution @5,017,600 pixels
    > 4K is 3840*2160 resolution @8,294,400 pixels

  3. Connection – Cameras are either on video cables which are limited to approximately 100′ per run or cat5e cables which can be run as far ass 350′.
  4. Brand – I am partial to Lorex Technology and Amcrest, and you always want to make sure they can be viewed over the internet on your smart device.
