Product Selection Guide
How to select the right video surveillance product for your needs.
First determine how many cameras you need.
Then decide will the system be computer based, wireless, or part wired and part wireless.
All Wireless No Computer
Wired cameras are better than wireless because locally displayed video is clearer.
Wireless cameras are easier to install since no need to install camera wires.
I already have a video capture card e.g. USB
camera or video capture card with a Conexant BT8xx chip on it.
Try or Buy our Video Surveillance Software. If not compatible get our video capture card and software.
I only have Windows 7 64 bit operating system. Use USB device, PCIE 8 port video capture system, IP cameras, stand alone DVR. Most all products work on Windows 32 bit.
The video capture device has the wrong connector input BNC RCA. Use connector converters to make be what you want it to be.
I want to use only USB. Use the USB video capture device.
I have no internet access at the monitoring location but cell phone coverage. Use cellular cameras - contact us.
Computer based systems with video capture cards are more economical, and put computer idle time to good use. Generally they have more features than stand alone systems. Local displayed video is clearer. Best for persons who know how to use a computer.
Stand Alone DVR no need for a computer. Better uptime compared to computers. Fewer features and buttons. Best for person's who do not want to use a computer.
Wireless IP Cameras easier to install no camera wires to run. Still need a computer type device to view or save video.
Video Streaming for remote viewing. Windows Media streaming and compression with Windows Mobile devices is clear video, no additional software to download to remote devices. All systems with Surveillance Webcam Software use Windows Media and Windows Mobile. All other systems use H.264 streaming and compression which is good.
