AND EDUCATION ON MANY SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS SOLD ON-LINE

SecuritySystems.com is managed by the owner of a professional surveillance company that has been installing security systems for over 30 years. Let me be frank. Certainly I want your business but the true impetus for this text is my genuine anger focused at all the websites that masquerade as security stores and flood the internet with their cheap junk and false claims. They give the industry I've worked for so long at a bad name. When you finish reading how I expose their lies and the junk they sell you'll be one less consumer they can take advantage of.

Before heading down to the bottom of the page for the facts we've compiled please allow me this brief narration to which I'm sure you'll find interesting.

Nearly all of these websites are just warehouses that ship gadgets or whatever else they can peddle to as many gullible consumers as possible. They are not in the security industry, they know nothing about surveillance cameras or for that matter even the cheap junk they sell. What they do know however is that anything they can get their hands on and present under the 'magic' number of $99.00 is guaranteed to sell with some convincing text. I'm qualified to say their claims about their products are grossly exaggerated if not outright lies. They are in fact cashing in on the phenomenal consumer interest in surveillance products.

In our opinion, wireless frequency cameras (2.4ghz) that inundate the internet are nothing but kid's toys. We've spoken to hundreds of folks that have innocently got suckered into buying this junk and they all say basically the same thing. 'I couldn't get any images' or 'we gave up and sent it back'. You don't need to join their ranks. The results you can achieve from these products are dismal at the very best. These 'security stores' know the rate of return on these products is astronomically high but the huge profits they make far outweigh their returns. They also know that many folks never return products even though they are completely unsatisfied. Further down the page is a complete explanation of all the pitfalls associated with all this junk being sold.

After you've decided you won't be added to their 'sucker' list head back and further review all the information we present on the Art & Surveillance Camera I stand behind this product as the best all-in-one consumer surveillance camera available today. If after absorbing our information you still have some questions you're welcome to call our toll free number and speak to us. You'll be speaking to real professionals, not some part time telemarketer reading from a script or manual working at one of these so called security websites.

The True Details And Specifics on X-10 Or Other Wireless Frequency Surveillance Cameras. Reading This Will Save You Time, Money And Aggravation.

Shown below are several pictures of so-called hidden surveillance cameras you'll find while searching the web. At a quick glance for a lot of folks they look like a great option. Allow us to give you an in depth explanation of how they work. First of all many sites conveniently just show a picture of their 'hidden wireless' camera. Left out in the ad is the transmitter you'll need with an obvious antenna that needs to be placed in an open unobstructed area to send wireless radio frequency signals from the camera to a receiver. This receiver also with an obvious antenna needs to be hard wired to a VCR or to get best results to a Digital Video Recorder. Without being connected to a VCR or a DVR you will not have any recorded images at all.

Naturally for most folks searching for a camera, they see this ad with just this picture of a 'hidden camera' and say 'this sounds great, No wires, just this camera? Only 59 bux? Wow! Let me buy this right now!' '..REALITY: It arrives and you open the box and hello 'what are these other things with these antennas sticking out' Now for your installation: For starters IF you don't have a DVR, a halfway decent one starts at $200.00. More serious reality: Although they will advertise these cameras sending images hundreds of feet what they don't tell you is the ideal reception requires a direct straight path with no obstacles in the way. Oh, you have walls in your house? That's why you have fuzzy or distorted images, if any at all. Nor will they mention all the interference from nearly every electronic household device also using wireless radio frequency signals, I.e., cordless telephones, microwave ovens, car alarms, garage door openers as well as every remote control used for Tv's and even kids toys. In many cases all it takes to interrupt the transmission is someone using a cellular phone within 300 feet of your home. Here is a test. Call up any surveillance company and tell them you are interested in installing wireless security cameras at your home or business. Their answer will be in somewhat different variations of 'we don't install them because they are not reliable'. Certainly not having to run 'hard wiring' would save consumers and businesses hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Of all the thousands of surveillance cameras installed in the Wal-Marts, Sears, Home Depot's or any huge chain there is NOT one wireless camera.

Should you purchase one of these X-10 or other wireless cameras this will be your scenario;

You first determine the area ideal for their 'hidden camera'. This of course is non negotiable as naturally you need to place the camera where it will 'see' the subject. The transmitter with the antenna sticking up can not be obstructed or hidden. It needs to be in plain view of the receiver (this picks up the video frequency transmission) these two devices can NOT be blocked by walls or furniture or you'll have just fuzzy images if any at all. But before you can locate the receiver unit you have to make sure it's near an outlet because this NEEDS power. It has a transformer that needs to be plugged in. (Some of these wireless cameras use batteries that will last only a few hours and this is a fact!) The next step is the VCR or DVR needs to be directly wired to the receiver. This means you either run a long wire to wherever your VCR or DVR is located. (Probably on top of your TV in another room) or move it to the room where the receiver needs to be located to receive any possible signals. So now you move your TV too?

Here is exactly how these 'hidden' cameras ideally work. In a large room with the transmitter and receiver in a direct visual path, both close enough to an electrical outlet and the VCR or DVR placed right next to it. Doesn't seem like its 'hidden' now does it? There goes your well thought out plans to have a secret camera. They don't work and all the unsuspecting folks that buy them find this out! Now you don't have to be one of them.

Our Art Surveillance Camera  or The Safe Home Covert Cameras  are two great units we highly recommend.  Neither of these units uses a wireless transmitter or a receiver.   They don't require a separate DVR because it's already built in. There is no wireless frequency involved in its operation.

At the very bottom are some pictures of typical 'hidden' wireless cameras that are being sold on the internet by these thieves.
