Recommendations for Motion Activated Security Cameras
Now, it’s time for camera recommendations.
VersaCam/Super IR camera (approximately $400 online) allows viewers to remotely view what the camera is seeing, which means that a person doesn’t need to be in the same building to ensure that it is safe. It also comes with IR illuminators which gives the camera a clear shot of up 150 feet even at night. The camera will send an alert if something activates it.
The Cooper Lighting Motion-Activated Floodlight and Camera is a cool little device. If somebody does set it off, not only are they picked up on video, the floodlight also comes on. This could potentially deter a criminal from even trying to break in. And, it’s relatively cheap at around $100 online.
Stealth Cam’s STC-SLC2B Patroller (between $120 to $190 online) builds upon the camera and floodlight combo, and it comes with a 2.0 megapixel camera. The camera will shoot either two pictures or ten seconds of video when activated, and every shot will be stamped with the time and date.
For those that want good color pictures, the Homeland Security 850 Motion Activated Color Cam (around $50 online) comes with a CMOS sensor and microphone. It takes full color pictures during the day and black and white photos at night.
Finally, the U.S. Patrol JB5472 Photo Patrol Security Camera is perfect for the budget consumer (less than $50 online) and for those that really want an inconspicuous camera. The camera actually looks like a call box more than a security camera. This is ideal for a home or small business.
