Why is it So Important to Invest on a Quality CCTV Monitor
A CCTV monitor is an important component of a security camera system. It is the video monitor used to view the video that is captured by the security DVR. CCTV monitors come in all different sizes, types, and price options. The goal when buying the best CCTV monitor is to buy the one that has the highest resolution, and comes with the best warranty!
The CCTV monitor industry has made huge strides in the past 5 years due to the explosion of high resolution IP cameras and traditional CCTV cameras. The manufacturers of CCTV monitors have been forced to raise the bar in order to ensure the monitors match the resolution of the security cameras hitting the market place. As a result there are now high definition CCTV monitors offered at affordable prices! If the CCTV monitor you are using doesn’t match the resolution of the cameras you are viewing, then you are just not seeing what your cameras are seeing. And you may really be missing out on the performance of your overall system.
When choosing a CCTV monitor the resolution is always the most important specification. The last thing you want to do is watch the video your cameras are capturing at a lower resolution. This is common when people decide not to use a CCTV monitor and instead use a standard computer monitor. Doing this only causes you to miss out on the fine details your cameras are capturing like identifying a face, a license plate number, or small movements of people in the areas you are trying to secure. Using a low resolution monitor just hinders the performance of your camera system and wastes your investment.
Many people make the mistake and attach just an inexpensive computer monitor to their security camera system. As we have already explained the resolution will just not be there for you to take full advantage of the performance of your system. But most importantly, the computer monitor will not last and is not made to support the tough job a CCTV monitor is asked to do. Unlike a computer monitor, a CCTV monitor is manufactured and designed to be on and working 24-7 all year long. So you could end up buying 3 computer monitors in the amount of time a single good quality CCTV monitor would last you.
