The Best Cameras For Creating An Advanced Home Security System

A plethora of different camera options are available in the market that have so much to offer when it comes to security. They each have various features to offer that you can use to enhance the security of your home, whether they're placed indoors or outdoors. Let's take a look at some surveillance camera options that you can introduce in your Portland, OR home to enhance your home security system.


Covert Cameras

Covert cameras come in different sizes and shapes to ensure they are hidden from plain view and difficult to identify. These cameras are especially helpful for monitoring and recording any misdemeanors or suspicious behavior. For example, a commonly used covert camera is a tiny nanny cam that can hide in toys or small crevices to catch any mistreatment. Covert cameras can be integrated with a home automation system that manages all your security and surveillance so that you can check in on the live or recorded footage at any time from wherever you are.

Dome Cameras

The dome camera is popularly used for indoor and outdoor surveillance. The rounded shape of this camera and the dark color of the area surrounding the lens make it difficult to ascertain which direction the camera is looking. Dome cameras are frequently installed in high, visible locations to act as deterrents to burglars and anyone lingering on your property. Many models possess vandal-resistant features along with night vision for 24/7 monitoring. 

Pan Tilt & Zoom Cameras

Pan, tilt, and zoom cameras are ideal for indoor and outdoor security and surveillance. You can use these cameras to monitor the main entrance to make a positive ID of any visitors. When they’re integrated with your automation system, you can use your smartphone to view footage and adjust the optical zoom and angle of the camera to see the surrounding areas.
