Editor's Notes

April 03, 2019:

One of the major benefits I've learned about by reviewing this category is that performance, power, precision, and functionality all become that much more relevant in numbers, meaning that a majority of the models I've included consist of entire surveillance systems offering multi-camera setups that are designed to interface with a variety of computers and mobile devices. This ultimately results in superior monitoring of a premises, be it a large home or place of business. Many of the options I included also feature built-in motion detection via infrared LED array. My second focus was on the equipment's ability to withstand all types of indoor and outdoor environments.

I added the GW Security AutoFocus for its H.265 video compression capabilities as well as its capacity for providing individual IP addresses for each camera, resulting in simple plug-and-play operation. Also added the Anran All-In-One for its 5.6-inch LCD and 2-terabyte hard drive, so it's a great option for large business owners who require the ability to go back and review a 10-day history of their security footage. Additionally, the system's zone-based email alerts come in handy when the cameras detect motion in a specific area of a store. The Smonet 16-Channel offers very similar functionality with regard to detection zones, but does so more for the purposes of preventing false alarms from things like wind or other neighbors. Both the Tonton Expandable and Soliom S60 offer the benefit of two-way audio recording, the latter of which delivers energy-efficient solar-powered operation and an extra-wide viewing angle. Added the Annke Ultra for its sleek, modern design and extremely high playback resolution. The DVR accompanying the XVim Outdoor is compatible with many different types of camera equipment (in addition to bullet cameras), so I thought it was a great choice to include for those looking to expand their security systems. Also included the Amcrest UltraHD for the high-quality image sensor and durable metal housing for withstanding extreme weather conditions. It can also conveniently record footage to FTP servers. Thought it's a standalone option and not part of a kit, the Revo Ultra was a worthy contender for its smart infrared technology, which can automatically adjust the intensity of its LED rays according to the unit's surrounding light conditions. Finally, added the JideTech 4X due to its motorized zooming lens and built-in surge protection.
