I wouldn’t have it any other way. How to choose your Easy DIY home security camera systemSo you have chosen to go the Easy DIY Home CCTV route. That’s a great choice if you want to get started right away and don’t want the hassle of researching and understanding how to put a home CCTV system together. First off, lets get the confusion about names out of the way. Home Security Camera System, Home Surveillance System, NVR Surveillance System, NVR Security System, NVR kit, IP Camera Surveillance Kit – these all typically mean the same, a complete kit that includes everything you need to get up and running. Choosing your digital network based home security system depends on the following:How many cameras do you need?Security camera systems are commonly specified by the number of separate channels they support. This simply indicates how many separate camera video streams they can record. They start from single channel devices going all the way up to 32. What level of video quality or resolution do you need?My usual recommendation of at least 1080p 2 Megapixels applies. There are tons of substandard 720p HD Ready systems you can get, but none of them will have the resolution needed to allow law enforcement positive identification of an intruder. Do you want the ability to use wireless cameras as well?While I generally do not recommend using wireless for critical home systems such as security, there are some situations where a wireless camera makes sense.
