There is a wide array of different systems available on the market, however, the consumers are often required to pay ridiculous amounts of money for such systems. Luckily, there are a lot of affordable options as well, able to provide equally good results.
LaView 8 Channel Complete Security System
LaView is a very affordable security system, costing only $180. The system ships with 4 high-res 600TVL cameras with integrated night vision support, able to capture anything up to 65ft at night, whether it is installed outdoors, or indoors. The users can simply install the system and run it, and it will automatically record everything for 30 days, and store the data on the 500 GB hard drive. A nice feature is that the recording can be set to motion detection, meaning that it will only start recording once the sensors pick up motion, saving a lot of space on the hard drive. The system has 4 cameras included, and all 4 can be viewed live in high resolution on the monitor. LaView is also controllable via a smartphone, or a tablet, meaning that the security is always at the user’s fingertips. Overall, this great system, with a great price tag, will definitely satisfy anyone that chooses to purchase it.
Defender Sentinel Smart Security system is a bit pricier than the aforementioned system. However, the difference in price is completely justified, as the Defender Sentinel is able to provide better recordings during the night, with night vision mode being able to capture anything up to 100ft away. Additional difference is that this system includes 8 cameras, making sure that every corner is completely covered. Just like the previous LaView security system, the Defender Sentinel is fully controllable via a smartphone, tablet, and other devices. The motion sensors are really responsive, meaning that nothing can pass by without triggering the system. However, if the user doesn’t want to rely on the motion sensors for recoding, there is an option for continuous H.264 recording, albeit this method can take up a lot of storage space, making it necessary to review the recordings, and delete them in order to make more space on regular basis. Even though slightly more expensive, the Defender Sentinel is still very affordable at $310.
The Zmodo Security Camera System is probably the best in this lineup. The 4 cameras shoot 720p HD videos that provide user with an extensive amount of detail, an important feature for anyone that wants maximum security. All cameras are completely weatherproof, so one shouldn’t have to worry if the weather conditions are harsh, as the cameras are able to withstand a lot. Of course, it wouldn’t be a modern day security system if it wasn’t accessible remotely, so the user can be sure that they can access the camera anytime, at any place. Price of the Zmodo Security Camera System is $318, and while it may be pricier than the LaView system, or the Defender Sentinel system, it is still more than affordable.
