The Best CCTV Motion Cameras

Whether you’re looking to catch a criminal in the act or capture nature at its finest, motion activated cameras can provide you with quality footage as soon as movement is detected, saving you time so you don’t have to sift through hours of video. There are multiple types of CCTV motion cameras including: ring floodlight cameras, nest cameras, mini dome cameras, HD over analog video cameras, super wide-angle security cameras, smart home cameras, wireless outdoor home cameras, outdoor day night vision infrared IR bullet security cameras, outdoor HD 3MP IP bullet security cameras and wireless optical zoom outdoor PTZ cameras. This month, Caught On Camera Ltd are here to explain the benefits of each camera and are here to help you along with the best camera to suit your needs.  

What features does your outdoor security camera require?

If you’re looking to protect your building externally or catch footage of your local wildlife, your camera will need to be waterproof and weatherproof because these devices will be damaged quickly otherwise.

Other than that, there are other factors you will want to consider including the following below:

Do you need wide outdoor surveillance coverage?

Consider what it is you want to capture as the camera’s viewing angle will help to be a deciding factor in your search for the perfect motion activated camera. Wide angle lenses will of course cover more area, which means one camera might be enough for the job – rather than spending money on multiple cameras with a limited range.

Do you require high-quality video resolution?

The higher a camera’s resolution, the clearer the image – this is important when establishing features on criminals or picking up a quality image of a deer, rabbit, fox – whatever it is you’re looking to do. If you want a crisp image you will need 1080p (pixels) or more – the more pixels, the better. It’s important to remember that a HD camera must be compatible with the device you wish to view the footage back on.  

Do you want your camera to have night vision?

Animals are more likely to wander around at dusk or in the middle of the night and sometimes that’s the case with criminals too. Night vision is an important feature to ensure you have full coverage, whatever the time of day. There are various models on the market with infrared (IR) capabilities – which enables a camera to pick up images even in the dark.
