Decreased costs also are helping to drive the increased popularity of illuminated and day/night cameras. â€œNow that the price gap is closing between color and infrared-illuminated cameras, weâ€™re seeing a lot of traction for our IR-illuminated cameras that provide their own light source that is invisible to the human eye,â€ claims Nick Rizzuto, product development manager for Digimerge.
Perry Whisnant, owner of Metro Waste, Charlotte, N.C., likes the Digimerge camera because of its versatility. If part of a room is bright enough for color and another part of the room is only bright enough for black and white, the camera will display an image that is partly black and white and partly color. â€œIt can do both at the same time,â€ Whisnant says.
One security dealer who is using more IR-illuminated cameras is John Dyess, owner of Dyezz Surveillance and Security, Austin, Texas. Dyess is particularly happy with a model that he buys from Speco. â€œYou can put it in a nightclub and the smoke from the smoke machine wonâ€™t affect it,â€ he says. â€œIt has eight infrared LEDs that provide light and we sell 150 to 200 of them a month.â€

Quality Remote Video Surveillance
Today’s technology makes it possible to create a state-of-the-art surveillance system that surpasses any level of security available before today. Digital Video Recording can put the finishing touches on your surveillance, allowing you to turn your computer into a commercial grade security system complete with remote video surveillance. The DVR card integrates a color quad processor, motion sensors, multiplexer, pan & tilt, CCTV monitor, and time lapse recorder without the need for separate components.
The tapeless system automatically stores footage on a hard drive. This hard drive can then be accessed remotely from any computer in the world. Remote video can be seen as live footage or after the fact, if suspicious activity has occurred.
Because there are so many variables involved in purchasing remote video surveillance, you should be aware of the various terms to ensure that you are purchasing the right system for your needs:
Frame Rate – The number of images recorded per seconds per camera
Resolution – Size of the recorded image
Remote Video – Offsite viewing of live and recorded video images
Cyclic Recording – Process by which the oldest recording is replaced by the newest recording

- Enlist local police. Local police departments typically will send a trained officer to your home to do a “walk through” with you, pointing out your vulnerabilities and suggesting simple fixes. Check your police department’s website for crime statistics and tips. For example, here is the Los Angeles Police Department’s detailed list of home-security tips for residents. Remember to alert police when you’ll be out of town.
- Chat up the neighbors. Join the local Neighborhood Watch program or start one. Chatting with neighbors updates you on local crime problems and enlists allies who’ll watch your home while you’re away. Neighbors are terrific watchdogs. My retired neighbor up the hill who likes peering out his window through a giant telescope spotted and chased a pre-dawn intruder from my garden once.
- Use your locks. Even if your neighborhood feels safe, make locking up a habit. Burglars often test a home by knocking on a door and, if no one answers, opening it. Keep every exterior door and window locked, including the door between the garage and house.
- Fake it. Getting a dog is a great security move. But if you can’t, pretend to have one, McGoey advises. Buy a couple “Beware of Dog” signs at a hardware store and put them up. When a stranger is at the door, make a show of putting the “dog” in the other room before you open the door.
- Install dummy security cameras (about $5).
- Paste a local security company’s sticker on your front window.
- Keep the place looking lived in. Rotate lights on timers when you’re gone. Sign up for USPS’ Hold Mail service, reschedule expected deliveries and get friends to drop by randomly to water plants or just walk around.
- Trim shrubs. Bushy trees and shrubs provide cover for bad deeds. Keep the foliage well-trimmed.
- Use your head. “Don’t open the door — and don’t let kids open the door — to uninvited strangers,” McGoey tells MSN Real Estate. Stay home when workers are in or around your home. Don’t put keys in obvious places like fake rocks and under pots and doormats. “Train children (especially teens) to keep key locations, alarm codes and other family security information private from their friends,” the article adds.
- Light the night. Install bright, motion-triggered security lights outside the front and back of your home. Battery-powered lights start at around $10 each. Hard-wired products start at around $50.
- Replace the door … or don’t. The best entry doors are solid wood ($100 and up) or 16-gauge minimum steel ($120 and up), says the Los Angeles Police Department. Use non-removable hinge pins and avoid doors with glass windows unless the glass is burglar-resistant. Consumer Reports’ test of entry doors found, however, that a strong door frame may count more than the door: “All [doors] eventually failed because the doorjamb split near the lock’s strike plate, though we also found that beefed-up locks and strike plates can greatly increase a door’s kick-in resistance.”
- Install a high-quality deadbolt – or two. Whatever you do, don’t rely on a simple knob lock (built into the door handle) alone. Install a deadbolt above a knob lock. McGoey recommends:
- Use a solid core or metal door for all entrance points.
- Use a quality, heavy-duty deadbolt lock with a 1-inch throw bolt.
- Use a quality, heavy-duty knob-in-lock set with a dead-latch mechanism
- Use a heavy-duty, four-screw strike plate with 3-inch screws to penetrate into a wooden door frame.
- Use a wide-angle 160-degree peephole mounted no higher than 58 inches.
