High-definition (HD) video quality – The higher the CCTV camera resolution, the sharper the crystal images. Ideally, you’ll want a 1080p, 12MP or higher resolution for the best view. Keep in mind that if you connect your security camera to a digital video recorder (DVR), (NVR) to record your CCTV camera’s footages, it will also need to be High Definition compatible to have crystal clear images and videos.
Clear night vision is one of the most important features for outdoor CCTV security cameras. To get the best and brightest in night view, consider a CCTV camera with infrared (IR) technology to sending bright light through wavelengths. The number of infrared LEDs used in a security camera determines how far your outdoor security camera will be able to clearly show what’s outside your home or business. Look for surveillance cameras that have at least 100 feet or better of night vision.
