One of the fastest-growing segments of the home surveillance industry, which is rapidly increasing in sales, is for home surveillance cameras.

That increase in demand of course has created a lot of different manufacturers offering different products at different prices. So when you go looking for a good home surveillance camera what exactly do you want to look for; what makes for a good home surveillance camera?

Usually home hidden cameras are board cameras that are placed inside objects that people are used to seeing every day. That board camera transmits images to a TV screen or computer monitor for viewing. The images are usually transmitted in color or black-and-white and can be done wirelessly or wired.

A relatively new option is to include a built-in DVR. This option is not available on all spy cameras. First you should look for a product that will fit in to your situation there are over 50 to choose from in all price ranges. The second thing to look for is a distributor that makes all his hidden cameras here in the US- custom-made, not an off-the-shelf import.

Then some distributors bench test their products before they send them out. That is a further assurance of a quality camera. Some distributors offer technical support. Remember that old bumper sticker “stuff happens”? Just in case there is a problem, where do you go to get it fixed. Chances are the distributor doesn’t know enough to do it. They need a good technical support team backing you up.

And finally everyone is concerned about price these days. When you go shopping for a good home surveillance camera or hidden surveillance camera look for a distributor who offers a price guarantee to meet or beat any price on the Internet for comparable products.

These are the qualities that make for a good surveillance camera.
