All You Need To Know About Video Security Systems

When you put so much time, effort and money in your business and home, it is crucial to make sure to keep it safe and secured. With the advent of technology and easy access to internet, everyone can equip the property with high-end video security systems.

Video security systems comprises of two main components:

  1. Video cameras
  2. Recording devices

The cameras monitor the happenings in and around, while the recording devices store all the video so you can watch footage either live or at a later time.

The first step is to choose the right security camera that fulfils your requirement. While video surveillance cameras once provided blurred and nearly unusable footage, high-definition (HD) and megapixel cameras have changed all that.  Advanced IP surveillance cameras like IP Dome, Box, Bullet, Pan-Tilt-Zoom or their HD versions have come in market.

Video security systems are incomplete without a recording device. Below are the two types:

DVR’s and NVR’s

NVRs (Network Video Recorder) and DVRs (Digital Video Recorder) are recording devices used to manage, view, and store surveillance videos. Which one should you choose depends purely on the type of camera you have or opt for – CCTV or IP surveillance cameras. It also majorly depends on which video security systems you need.


The DVR or digital video recorder was the popular choice with business owners who had CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) cameras. It is still a popular choice among consumers who have do not have IP surveillance cameras.


The NVR, or network video recorder is more popular these days. The NVR is a wireless connection from the camera to the box. This is a convenient option for many because camera placement never becomes an issue. You have the freedom to move your camera anywhere as long as it is within your network range.
