Unfortunately, theft is a growing issue in the UK, and if you have anything that is going to be even slightly appealing to would-be burglars, you’re at risk of some serious problems.

But what should you be looking for in the best home security? There are several different types of CCTV available for home installation out there. Let’s take a look at them and see which of the main types and styles are right for your home.
Dome cameras tend to be some of the most popular for home use as they are discrete. It’s very hard for would-be criminals to see where the camera is. What’s more, it’s really easy to install, and they work with approx an 80-degree view, while also being able to be placed both inside and out of a property.
PTZ Cameras (Pan Tilt and Zoom)
These versatile security cameras are great for home CCTV installations because they are so flexible. As the name suggests, these CCTV cameras will carefully pan, zoom, and tilt as you wish. They offer great detail and picture quality, which allows you to focus on would-be intruders.
IP CCTV Cameras
An IP CCTV security camera is great if you want to remotely manage your recordings as well as your live feed. These cameras and Recorders as the name suggests, will connect directly to the internet via your router and feedback to you wherever you are, providing you have access to a connected app or program.
Bullet CCTV Cameras
Bullet cameras tend to be a classic choice. They are very easy to spot which makes them an effective crime deterrent. They tend to be great when you want or need to monitor from a distance, and if you are going to be scanning the outside of your property. They are also very resistant to all kinds of weather.
Wireless CCTV Cameras
Wireless security camera installations can blend into many of the above, especially IP cameras, however these can be limited in use and are generally battery operated which have battery life issue problems and require strong WiFi signals,although they do fill a niche all on their own as well. These cameras are flexible to fit for the DIY enthusiast, they can be very discreet. But for a solid and reliable solution hardwired is the best choice.
