Are you a homeowner or own a business? Are you looking to add a security system to your home or business? You know what you want to cover, but don’t know what camera quality may be best for you? Well, there are a variety of qualities that are out in technology these days. At Security Surveillance System we offer 2K, 4K, and even 8K systems. You may be wondering, what does the K stand for in 2K, 4K, or 8K, which some people didn’t even know existed? K stands for thousand, and it is referring to the number of pixels built into the camera. When there are more pixels in an image, the picture will stand out more in details, henceforth the higher the quality. Cameras come in many shapes and sizes, but the main purpose of a security camera is the image it transfers to a monitor. Security Surveillance System offers many unique cameras from 2 thousand up to 16 thousand pixels. Depending on your needs, detail is really important. For example, a 2K camera will be able to catch the face of a victim, 4k might catch the jewelry the victim was wearing, but 8K will catch the slightest and most important details, like the tattoo of the victim or the marks and bruise they might have. Not that the 2K and 4K will not catch that, but the detail will be remarkable in 8K footage.
Televisions have advanced majorly in the past decades, we went from box TV’s to flat screen HDTVs that show you an image almost close to reality. Soon, 8K TV’s will be offered in retail, which will bring visions of reality to life when showing you the footage on screen. When an incident happened, the TV that the camera footage is transferred may not yet be able to handle it when footage is minimized, but when the footage is maximized, the detail in the footage is remarkable and unbelievable. We also offer HD 1080p, our economical packages still clear as day, but to maximize efficiency and performance, 8K is the way to go.

We have gotten quite a few people asking about wireless cameras lately and we would like to go over a few things to know about wireless cameras. We will give you some pros and cons surrounding wireless security cameras and then you can decide if you think wireless is the way to go for you.
Pros: The biggest advantage of wireless cameras is that there is no cable to run to the DVR. This makes it very convenient when you need to put a camera in an area that it would be a little harder to run cable into the wall. For example, on a cement or brick wall. These cameras only need a power outlet close to them to operate. If there is no outlet the camera will not be able to operate as it will have no power.
Cons: Wireless cameras are not completely wireless. As explained before they still must have power with in a small distance so that the power chord will reach. This can be a problem for some people when it comes to their idea of wireless. Another issue with wireless cameras is the fact that just like baby monitors and cordless phones they communicate through frequency waves. If there is anything in the area of the cameras that is putting of the same or even higher frequency waves it can interfere with your cameras causing a disturbance and possibly loss of video feed. This also means that they are able to be hacked by people who know about hijacking radio frequencies and can be viewed by outside of the area that they are meant to be viewed. You are also limited on the number of cameras you can have for the same reason. If you have to many cameras all communicating at the same time it can cause interference with the other cameras as well. For this reason we recommend wired cameras.
In any case you can make the decision yourself. For some people wireless is the perfect solution and for others they are not.
