If you think you are the only one who needs protection from harm or theft, then you need to really think again.
While you would want to use your video surveillance cameras to stop people who may want to rob you, how about those who don’t want to rob you directly but actually want to rob your DVR security video recorder of its attached cameras!
I know it sounds funny though but really, your outside security cameras may be in jeopardy as you read this story.
Most outdoor security cameras are expensive high-end surveillance cameras loaded with advanced technologies like night-vision, infra-red and long-range zooming capabilities.
What this means is that outdoor surveillance cameras are much more expensive than regular security cameras. Also, if you actually install those cameras for your business, chances are, your installation are much more expensive as are your outdoor cameras.
A thief who’s able to steal your expensive surveillance cameras would be able to sell it in the black market for a fortune.
How To Protect Your Outdoor Video Security Cameras

How About Protection From Harsh Weather?
That’s another big one, isn’t it?
Sometimes, weather can be bitter cold, burning hot, dry or simply humid and warm. All of these climatic conditions have effects on your outdoor video surveillance cameras. If you install your cameras outside without any covering whatsoever and they are not installed under a shade, rain and drops of water may get inside; damaging the lens.
What you need in this case is obvious – weatherproof casing. Therefore, when you get protection for your cameras; you’re actually making them both vandal-proof and weather-proof which in turn saves you money.
Just like when you leave a piece of metal outside. After some time, the metal casing may start getting rusty and weak, but most outdoor camera casing available today are made to withstand all-weather. they even have wiper to wipe of the lens cover when it rains. How sweet.
Point is, don’t be penny wise, hundreds of dollar foolish. Your outdoor security cameras need protection from harm and theft. Get them secured.
