With a camera microphone you add sound to the image that the security camera saves. Many surveillance cameras already have an internal microphone concealed in the housing so that connecting a camera microphone is not necessary, but the security cameras with cable often do not have this. At Sitcon we offer various camera microphones that can be ordered online or purchased in our store. If you are not sure whether your camera supports a microphone, it is often wise to contact us by telephone or e-mail for advice.
When to use a camera microphone?
As soon as you have a security camera with a microphone connection, you can use it. However, most camera microphones require a separate power supply, so there must be a power point nearby where you want to place the camera microphone.
Recording of sound is not always allowed
The use of a surveillance camera microphone to record sound is not allowed in all situations. You must therefore check whether this is legally permitted in the place where the security camera is installed. This is not allowed in an office space, for example.
Different types of microphones
Camera microphones are available in a model that you have to conceal yourself and in models where they are visibly placed near a security camera.
With the security camera microphones it is important that they have such a quality that conversations can be followed. For this it is important that the camera microphone itself, but also any NVR where the sound is recorded, support a sufficient quality.
Buy a camera microphone
If you do not know exactly how and whether a camera microphone can be connected to your security camera, we advise you not to order it online. It is better to first send us an email with the camera model and possible photo so that we can determine whether you can connect a camera microphone and which one. For this you can also visit one of our stores to buy a camera microphone.
