by Louise Gomez

If you want to increase the security of your business, one of the best ways to accomplish that task is by installing security cameras. Security cameras with deter potential thieves and will allow you to keep a closer eye on what is happening at your business. This guide will help you understand the different types of cameras you can purchase for your business.

External Cameras

If you want to keep an eye on things going on outside of your business, you will need to purchase cameras specifically designed to work outside. External cameras are designed to be weather-resistant; they will not stop working just because they got a little wet. They are also designed to be very durable and should not easily break, even when big storms hit.

If you really want to see what is going on, there are a variety of options when it comes to external cameras. You can purchase cameras that adjust their recording when the light changes outside in order to allow you to really see what is happening. You can even purchase external cameras that have infrared night vision as well. 

Most external cameras as designed to offer you wide-angle views. 

Internal Cameras

Internal cameras are not built to withstand the same type of conditions that external cameras are. 

Static cameras are a popular type of internal camera; they stay aimed at one particular place and let you see what is happening there. They generally offer very high-quality images.

Another popular type of internal camera is the dome camera. Dome cameras are designed to give you a wide field of view. With a dome camera, you can get a true 360-degree coverage. These cameras work well if you want to monitor an entire room or a large open space. 

Additional Options

There are additional options that can come with both external and internal security cameras.

Motion detectors are a very popular option. Instead of recording all the time, motion cameras are only activated and start recording when they detect motion. Motion detectors work well for monitoring premises as they can quickly alert you to activity.

Adjustable cameras are another popular security camera option. Adjustable cameras allow you to remotely change what you are watching. You can tilt, pan and zoom with the camera. You can even set the camera up to do these actions on a schedule. 

Finally, you can purchase most cameras with wireless technology. Wireless technology allows you greater versatility with placing your security cameras as you don't have to wire them in.

If you are looking into investing in some security cameras for your business, remember that external and internal cameras are built to withstand different things. Additionally, both external and internal cameras can be modified with options such as motion detection and wireless technology.
