Features to look for when buying a Samsung security camera
Samsung is best known for making smartphones and TVs, but the truth is, the company produces a wide range of small and large technologies starting from microchips and ending with airplanes. The security cameras and surveillance systems made by Samsung have also been recognized as one of the leaders on the market by both the end customers and by security system experts.
But how do you choose which camera or surveillance system is perfect for your needs? Here are some of the features to look for when you are shopping for a Samsung surveillance camera or system.
Corded vs. wireless
Most of our top picks are corded, but we have included the nifty Wi-Fi SmartCam as well, for those of you who need an IP security camera rather than one which is corded.
The wireless option still requires that it is plugged into a power source, but after that, it connects to your Wi-Fi network and you get access to it via your computer or mobile device. The downside is that the camera has a limited storage space and that it relies on the wireless network connection to send you alerts or allow you to watch video or listen to audio at home in real-time. This means that if for any reason the Wi-Fi network stops working, your access to the camera will be lost.
Corded cameras and security systems do require that the cameras are plugged in the power outlets and need to be connected to the recording device (DVR or NVR) too. But cable connections are still more reliable, and the recording devices such as the one included in our choice for the best surveillance system – the Samsung Wisenet system, has a capacity of storing up to 1TB of video recordings.
You can always add more compatible cameras such as our top choice – the Samsung SDC-9443BC to your existing system, in order to further improve the security of your home.
One camera or a set of cameras
We have picked one security system, including an 8-channel Super HD DVR with a set of four cameras, and a set of the same bullet cameras as two of our top choices for Samsung security cameras for 2021.
Of course, the more cameras you have set up, the better and larger the coverage of your video surveillance system will be.
Still, not everybody requires complete coverage of large home or outdoor areas, which is why we have picked several individual cameras for you which can be used alone, or along with other cameras too.
Our choice for the top dome camera has an ultra-wide viewing angle which means that it could be sufficient to monitor an entire room or outdoor area. The SmartCam is suitable for monitoring a smaller room or area. The bullet cameras we picked for you also have wide viewing angles, offer excellent night vision and have a high motion detection precision as well.
So, whether you choose to use a single security camera or a whole army of cameras is entirely up to you and depends on your needs, the size, and setting of your home, as well as on your budget of course.
The Wi-Fi SmartCam has a micro SD slot that can work with a card of up to 128GB, which is quite a bit of storage space. It also has an option of loop recording, which means that the camera will overwrite old recordings if it runs out of storage space. The DVR in the Samsung Wisenet security system has storage of 1TB, which of course means that you can record continuously for longer and that you can store much more alert-triggered recordings before having to clean up the storage space.
So, depending on your preferences, you can choose a camera that has its own storage capabilities, or a camera that sends the signal to a recording device with much more storage space.
Of course, in both cases the recordings can be backed up to other storage solutions, so just pick the type which works for you.
All of the cameras which we have selected for you have night vision, but the scope is different, which can make a huge difference, depending on where you set the cameras and how big the area being monitored is.
Our favorite SDC-9443BC bullet camera has excellent night vision capabilities which can capture any movements in a range of up to 130ft. The SCV-2080R dome camera has an IRC night vision range of up to 100ft., and the SmartCam will see and record objects and people in the dark located up to 30ft from it. although the picture of all of these cameras is excellent both day and night, if you are looking for a camera to oversee a larger area, you may want to go with our top choice, budget choice and runner-up – the 4 piece set, the surveillance system with 4 cameras and the single-camera offer for Samsung bullet security camera – the SDC-9443BC.
If you need a camera for a smaller room, the SmartCam Wi-Fi camera is another excellent and very convenient wireless option too.
Field of view
The viewing angle of a security camera is very significant, because the wider it is – the larger the area it will capture. For a more panoramic view, choose the Samsung SCV-2080R dome camera which has the widest viewing angle.
The SmartCam also has an ultra-wide view of about 130 degrees, while as being bullet cameras, our top picks have a slightly smaller viewing angle, but if properly mounted and combined they can cover entire perimeters without any blind spots or areas.
All cameras in our list have motion detection and will trigger alerts to your device or to the recoding system to start recording if any movement is sensed. The different cameras have different ranges for their motion sensors. The SmartCam even has an audio sensor, and you can set up alerts if a sound or voice is heard as well. The other security cameras which we have picked can be set up to have up to 12 privacy zones, which will help you eliminate certain zones which should not trigger alerts, in case you have a pet, or for other reasons to eliminate the number of notifications you get as well as to save storage space for recording all of these false alerts and events.
Outdoor or indoor
Our top selections from the range of Samsung cameras offered in 2021 are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, with the exception of the Wi-Fi SmartCam, which is for indoor use only. Apart from it, the other cameras on our list are weatherproof, so they will withstand rain, shine, snow, or dust.
Ease of installation and use
All of the cameras we have selected are easy to install, although setting up the Wi-Fi camera is the easiest because it can just be placed on a desk, table and plugged into a power socket.
The wireless camera is a better option if you want a mobile security camera which you can move from room to room or from one area to another, but the bullet cameras on our list are also adjustable so you don’t have to worry about not getting the exact angle you wanted once you have mounted them to the wall or ceiling either.
The bullet and dome security cameras we picked do require mounting, but they come will all of the mounting equipment you will need, as well as the cables and detailed instructions for installation and use.
You just need to make sure that if you choose to buy one or more of these cameras separately, that they are compatible with your DVR or NVR system if you want to be able to record the video surveillance.
All cameras and security systems from Samsung are easy to set up and use. Thanks to the useful Samsung security system and camera apps (WiseView and SmartCam), you can easily adjust the settings via your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Hopefully, we have helped you make up your mind about the best Samsung security camera, set of cameras or entire surveillance systems you need.
All of Samsung’s video surveillance cameras are of top quality, durable and very reliable. Of course, you should pick the one or more cameras you need in accordance with your personal needs, but we are pretty sure that whichever one you choose, you will be incredibly satisfied with your purchase after you see just how easy they are to install, setup and use, and after you see how precise they are in capturing motion and watching over your property!
