Security cameras with a screen have a built-in monitor or come with a separate screen. The popularity of a camera system with a screen remains unchanged, despite the rise of IP cameras. Security camera sets with a screen nowadays have the same functionalities as IP cameras, but with the convenience of viewing the images directly on a screen.
When to choose a security camera with a screen?
In almost all situations it is useful to have a screen with your security camera set. Although systems with a screen can now also be operated via the App or computer, adjusting via the screen directly on the recorder is much easier and faster. The screen can also be positioned in such a way that you can immediately view the images from the security camera system and do not have to open an app or computer program first.
Which models with a screen are there?
There are security camera sets where the recorder has a built-in screen and models where the monitor is connected to the recorder with a VGA or HDMI cable. There are also camera systems with a touchscreen monitor, but most of them work with a computer mouse. The models of security cameras that can be used with a system with a screen are very large. there are special cameras for outdoor use, cameras with sound and/or microphone and PTZ cameras that can be rotated and zoomed. All these camera models work seamlessly on systems with a screen.
Which security cameras cannot connect a screen?
A monitor cannot be connected to WiFi IP cameras without an HDMI output. These models of security cameras are made to operate only with an App.
Connect a screen to a camera system yourself
With some camera systems, a screen is not supplied as standard, but it is possible to connect a screen. These have a recorder with VGA or HDMI output to which a TV or monitor can be connected. This does not necessarily have to be a special screen, but it is of course better to have a screen that can handle the resolution of the security cameras.
Hang up a screen of a camera system
Many customers who buy a camera system with a screen would like to hang the screen in a visible location. With most monitors this is possible with a universal VESA bracket or there is a mechanism in the recorder itself to attach the screen to a wall.
