Security Camera System FAQ, Research & Buyers Guide

Writing for CCTV Camera Pros, I have assembled hundreds of articles, how-to guides, and demo videos to help customers research security camera systems and video surveillance equipment. This page contains links to some of our best content that answers frequently asked questions (FAQ) for people researching the best equipment based on their requirements. I hope you find this page a useful guide to help navigate the plethora of information that we have available.

Please note that most of this content is related to HD CCTV/ HD-over-Coax type security cameras because that is what CCTV Camera Pros recommends for most customers. You can read about why I like HD-over-Coax security cameras better than IP cameras in most cases here.

If you have any questions related to video surveillance systems, please contact me via email here.
