All of us have experienced the house of commercial burglar alarm that sounded at full volume without anybody minding it. The sound in the end just became nuisance. One of the challenges in the use of smart security cameras is false alarms. This is not just an illusion. In fact, based on research 70 and 98 percent of burglar alarms are false positives. There are many reasons for these. Based on research again, 30 percent of false positives are caused by insects. This is often caused by the sensors of the camera incorrectly interpreting insect movement as suspicious activity.
It’s good that there are now smart security cameras that have video analytics and artificial intelligence within such devices. This makes it easy for the cameras to detect real threats and avoid false positives. These security cameras perform object detection, speech and facial recognition, and behavior identification.
Every type of home and family may have different needs when it comes to security cameras. With the incorporation of smart technology, the number of options available to you for a reliable security camera has increased. It may become overwhelming for you unless you learn the basics of security cameras and do further research on advance technology that is applied to it.
The following are the different types of security cameras that any household can choose from: bullet cameras; dome cameras; wired, wireless, and wire-Free cameras; IP cameras; smart, voice integrated cameras; and indoor and outdoor cameras.
Bullet cameras are called such because of their cylindrical shape which looks like a bullet. Its appearance is highly discernible which makes it a deterrent to burglars. They are often fixed on one point. It is also often prone to vandalism.
Dome cameras have a really unique shape, but they can be more discreet than the bullet type. They are also called ceiling cameras and are more used indoors. It also has other advantages that can’t be found in bullet cameras. Dome cameras tend to have a wider viewing angle. They are also more resilient to tampering and vandalism. They can be used indoors and outdoors.

There are also cameras that are wire-free and wired. Wireless cameras still require a power cord. Wire-free cameras are battery operated security cameras that are totally cable free. The wire-free types are the easiest to install. Since these are battery operated, batteries need charging.
The latest security cameras have integrated voice assistants. Voice commands are used for control and monitoring of the wireless security system totally hands free. This integration makes your security system convenient to use, flexible, and comprehensive.
