Another factor to consider when outdoor surveillance camera shopping is the camera’s resolution. The higher the camera resolution, the clearer and easier the images will be to see. Ideally, you’ll want 1080p or higher resolution for the clearest images. Keep in mind that if you connect your camera into a DVR or other recording device, it will also need to be HD compatible in order to keep the image at a high quality.

There are two main styles of outdoor security cameras — dome or bullet. Both camera styles are fairly obvious to potential intruders, however, it is more difficult to determine which direction a dome-style camera is pointing, which may help deter a potential intruder. Another thing to keep in mind regarding camera style is whether you want to mount it on the ceiling or wall and ensuring that whatever camera you choose has enough clearance to mount in the desired location.

Hi Ben. I bought the Hikvision camera (the 3MP version, since that was available on amazon). However, I could not get it to activate. Going to the default ip address just makes the browser hang, and their activation software only works on Windows. Perhaps I received a defective camera, since you were able to get this camera to work on a mac, but there seems to be a general issue of poorly written manuals and activation software for ip cameras. I’m even considering Nestcam, though I hate their yearly fee business model, in my attempt to find decent manuals/software. Can you recommend an ip camera (preferably a compact indoor discrete model) that has put effort into making high quality manual/software/setup? Have you ever considered doing this yourself? I’m running out of spare time to continue wrestling with the setup.

In most cases, an IP camera is described as a camera and computer shared in a single unit. The primary components of an IP/network camera combine a lens, an image-sensor, one or a number of processors, and memory. The processor’s main purpose is for image processing, networking functionalities, video analysis, and compression. The memory is chiefly for gathering the camera’s computer program along with storing video.

Monitoring at night is one of the most common uses for outdoor surveillance cameras, and in order to get a high quality image, you’ll want to purchase a camera with infrared (IR) technology. Many models have a built-in IR cut-switch that automatically enables and disables the infrared technology depending on the lighting conditions, so you get the clearest image possible no matter what time of day. The number of infrared LEDs used in a camera will help determine how far of a night vision range a camera has.

Outdoor IP Cameras Outdoor IP cameras are designed to suit most budgets and needs whether you’re keeping an eye on your home or office. Outdoor cameras can be used in yards, parking lots, around buildings and within a home owner’s yard. Typically, outdoor cameras are purchased for surveillance purposes. Their relatively low cost and easy installation procedures allow homeowners an affordable option for home security. Outdoor cameras usually are designed to be weatherproof and waterproof. Their casings are airtight in order to avoid natural elements from hindering their functionality. For example, airtight designs can help limit the accumulation of dust and dirt inside the device. Additional housing or external weatherproof casing can be purchased separately.

An outdoor surveillance camera can be a practical and economical way to protect and secure your home. There are several factors to consider when looking for a model that is best for your needs, with the most important aspect for having your camera outdoors being it has been rated as either weatherproof or waterproof. Beyond that, here’s what you need to think about:

I should also mention that Dahua is now selling 12 MP PoE cameras. According to their press releases, they’ll be expanding their 12 MP camera line in the coming months. If the technology gets to the point where you can buy an outdoor 12 MP camera with a varifocal lens for under $350, I will be making some upgrades.

This category is a listing of all outdoor IP CCTV cameras we offer that provide a fixed, static view. Our outdoor IP camera range includes cameras with features such as weather and vandal resistant housings, infrared and built-in illumination to enhance night-vision.

Hi Charlie, we haven’t tested this particular camera, but I think it’s highly likely to work with SecuritySpy, probably with the existing Astak profile already built into the software. If you decide to go for this camera, please report back and let us know how you get on. If you have any difficulties, I’m confident that we will be able to make any required tweaks to SecuritySpy’s profile to make it work.

Whoever designed it is a really poor designer. First, having a fixed IP address by default is idiotic. Second, making it visible in Safari via Bonjour but only halfway such that (a) the activiation generates a failure message (even though it succeeded) and (b) trying to login via the Bonjour link (after activation) generates a failure message, is idiotic. So after something like 20 factory resets, I ended up using iVMS for Mac, but that software mis-represents what the camera settings are – it says it’s set to DHCP, but in fact the camera is not – so that’s idiotic.

I don’t know if this is something that changed in the firmware, but with my original camera , I can easily login by accessing it via Bonjour with the: ds-2cd2412f-iw….local. address . But that doesn’t work with the new camera .

Ben, I have just bought SecuritySpy. I would like to buy a low cost, outdoor, pan and tilt camera, preferable WiFi that would be compatible with your software. High resolution and high speed are not my main concerns. Would you have some suggestions? Thanks, Jacques
