Other questions for the security camera


1. Are ansjer security cameras weatherproof?

The vast majority of Ansjer security cameras come with an IP66 weatherproof rating. This IP (Ingress Protection) rating uses a two-digit code to indicates how resistant the equipment is to dust and liquids. 

Ansjer cameras with this rating are completely protected from dust and can withstand low pressure jets of water from all directions. This ensures safe outdoor use in virtually all climates and atmospheres.

2. How are Ansjer wireless cameras powered?

Wireless security cameras from Ansjer will need to be plugged in to an electrical socket for power. Of course, this means that wireless cameras are not fully wireless. The wireless part of our wireless cameras takes place between the camera and the wireless receiver attached to the DVR.

3. What are the best locations for wireless security cameras?

Wireless security cameras are ideal for locations that it might otherwise be difficult to run cables too, such as detached buildings, high-up placements, or a distant area of your property. Wireless cameras can also be an easy indoor solution to monitor your important entrances or your home office.

4. How far away can I install a wireless security camera?

Wireless security cameras from Ansjer use high gain antennas that can transmit video to a receiver up to 300 metters(open air) away with a clear line-of-site. The indoor range is usually much shorter, since the wireless signal will most likely have to pass through walls and other building materials to reach the camera.

5. Can I use an indoor security camera on the window to see outside?

Each camera performs differently from others so it’s hard to say, but generally cameras don’t perform well when aimed through a window. The camera often focuses on the window or a mark on the window instead of the event taking place outside.

6. Are security cameras completely wireless?

No, not all cameras are completely wireless. Most cameras need to be plugged into an electrical outlet. However, if they are battery operated then they are probably wired into a DVR, VCR, or other system to transfer the data so it is viewable. Be sure to check what types of wires your camera needs before purchasing.

7. What type of video connector do Ansjer security cameras use? 

Our security cameras have a female BNC connection. All of our Video & Power cables have two male BNC ends which connect a camera to a DVR.

8. Do security companies have access to my security cameras?

Security companies like Frontpoint, ADT, Protect America, and Vivint do not have access to your camera’s footage or images. Security companies only have access to these things if they offer video monitoring as an add-on service with extra fees. Not all security companies offer this, so check to see if your security company does.

9. Reason why there isn't output video of the camera when connecting to TV?

1. The cable may be damaged,pls change a cable to test it.
2. Power supply may has problem ,pls replace a new power supply for it.
3. If the problem can not be solved,pls contact custom service.

10. How does the audio supportive camera work?

The camera doesn’t have an in-built microphone, so you need to add external one to it to realize audio function.

11. Will bright daylight damage an infrared camera's LEDs?

No.  Our infrared security cameras (which use LEDs) are designed for both low light and lighted use, so daylight will not damage them.  The infrared LEDs stay off during the day while it is light out and then turn on at night in the dark when they sense that the light is low enough.  Outdoor bright light use in the day will not damage them in any way.

12. What are WDR security cameras used for? 

A WDR camera (Wide Dynamic Range) is used for capturing images of objects surrounded by a strong back light, while still keeping the background visible. WDR technology uses special high-speed CCDs to make two consecutive image scans to one picture. Non-WDR cameras just make one pass. 

The first scan captures images in the normal light condition. Right after, the camera captures the second image at high speed to capture the images that are in the strong light. The image processor then superimposes the two video images to provide a single picture that can see all areas. 

A typical use for a WDR camera is capturing scenes indoors that have large windows in the background with lots of sunlight. A WDR camera would enable you to capture both the indoor and outdoor/background scene clearly.

13. How do wireless security cameras transmit data?

Via broadcasting in 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz ranges. Transmitters send the data out over wireless signals which are then picked up by receivers.

14. What's the range of a wireless camera?

About 600-700 feet via 2.4 GHz, and up to 2000 feet with 5.8 GHz. Inside a house, the distance is much more limited based on walls and other obstructions.

15. Is it possible to extend the range of a wireless security system?

Absolutely. By using repeaters, a wireless signal can be boosted down a series of repeaters. However, video quality is like to drop the more repeaters you use. Obviously, the more distance also means more room for things to get in the way of the signal.

16. How long does the wireless security camera power last?

Lithium-ion cells are interesting in that they provide incredibly consistent power, but they die out naturally over time. Even if not in use, a lithium-ion cell sitting on a shelf will gradually fade. Batteries for wireless security cameras can last anywhere from one to three years at best. They are very easily replaced – easier than replacing a watch battery. It's like unbuttoning and buttoning a shirt!

But most wireless security cameras are powered via a power cable.

17. If my security camera is wireless, could someone 'hack' into it?

Yes. Now, don’t go running off quite yet. If you have a wireless security system it is very possible for someone to hack into it if you leave its security at the default settings. Obviously, do not leave it at the default settings. We highly recommend changing what ports it uses – especially to a port that is not commonly used. We also recommend changing the camera’s address name and password. The security system should be behind your internet, not out in the open.

18. What are the other uses for indoor security cameras besides detecting burglars?

They can be used for a whole range of other things you may not have even thought about. Here are six of the most popular applications:

A. Checking in on the kids, e.g., are they home from school yet?

B. Checking in on an elderly relative to make sure they’re okay

C. Checking in on pets

D. See what other animals are coming in through your cat flap

E. Checking to see if you left a window open?

F. Monitoring the baby, nanny, babysitter or cleaner, etc

19. How many indoor security cameras do I need?

How many cameras you need, will be based upon the structure of your property and the rooms or areas you want to watch over. If it’s not practical to cover every door and window, then the next best position is in a hallway which the intruder has to walk down in order to navigate around your home.

20. Why are there so many setup options for wireless IP cameras?

The short answer is to give you more flexibility. Despite there being so many options, try not to let this overwhelm you. You’re not going to need most of them so my advice is to keep things as simple as possible. In other words, don’t start to read about any of the stuff that doesn’t apply to the way you want your camera system to work. This is no different to the user’s guide for say a smartphone. How many people read those cover to cover – practically no one. We just go to the sections that apply to us and our needs. Do the same for your camera system. Before starting to set up your camera, list the things you want it to do.

21. Why does a wireless camera have an Ethernet socket?

Out of the box, a wireless security camera system may be unconfigured. That means you have to set it up before you can use it. To do this you need to plug an Ethernet cable into its Ethernet socket or port. This will instantly connect the device to your home network. All you have to do then is run the setup software and follow the stepped instructions. That’s it, you’re all done.

Another use for Ethernet technology is if your home Wi-Fi signal is patchy. You could always buy a Wi-Fi extender or repeater that extends the coverage area by amplifying the signal. However, a better, more consistent option is to connect your camera directly to your router via an Ethernet cable.

22. How many hours of video from my indoor camera can I store on a MicroSD card? 

This depends on two things: the SD Card storage capacity and the quality of the video recording.  If you continuously stream video to a 64GB microSD Card, you will get around 40 hours. This might sound like a lot, but 40 hours is not much. I recommend you only store motion/sound activated recordings (event based), for two reasons:

1). For a normal home set up you only need to record when you’re not there. That means you could possibly store a couple of months of elapsed time on a 64GB card.

2). The second reason is control. If you need to go back and find specific footage of an incident, you can do this quickly when you only have sensor activated recordings. If you need to do the same with continuous recording – and don’t know the time of the incident- you could be there for hours. Imagine that, watching video of an empty home, which is about as much fun as watching paint dry.

23. How do ANSJER security cameras work?

Many wonder how surveillance cameras work. For our purposes, we will use the terms “surveillance camera” and “security camera” interchangeably. To understand how security cameras work, you first need to understand the different types. Security cameras, or surveillance cameras, come in one of two types: either as an analog surveillance system, or an IP camera system (also referred to as a network camera). Analog systems are generally less expensive than the IP camera option because with an IP camera, the DVR function is included in the camera itself, whereas with an analog surveillance camera, an external DVR must be connected.

24. How well do ANSJER security cameras capture images at night?

Infrared security cameras are equipped with detector chips sensitized to detect visible or near-infrared radiation. These cameras transmit clearly defined images directly to monitor screens whether it is completely dark or semi-dark.

25. How can security cameras capture events occurring at the camera's peripheral?

Equipped with the technology to tilt capture, as well as pan and zoom, security cameras work even better than a pair of human eyes because of their ability to provide real-time, factually objective images of perpetrators in the act of committing a crime. This gives law enforcement the information they need to quickly find the burglar and make an arrest.

26. Where can ANSJER surveillance cameras be placed and still function optimally?

Differently sized surveillance cameras can be attached anywhere they fit — under exterior roof eaves, in ceiling corners, on shelving and even in trees, if necessary. Mounting surveillance cameras requires merely a sturdy surface on which to attach the device.

27. Can surveillance cameras store video streams for later viewing or can they only be viewed in real-time?

Video captured by many surveillance cameras can be stored on a hard drive and watched any time the user wishes to watch the video. Hours of surveillance may also be transferred to DVDs, HDD or CD-Rs for litigation purposes.

28. What is an analog surveillance camera?

Analog systems use a wired transmitter or wired configuration to send images to a receiver. Typically, operating an analog surveillance camera requires running a wire between the camera and the monitor, along with a coaxial cable to send data. Although analog surveillance systems are cheaper than digital surveillance systems, they are much less convenient because they are distance-limited and cannot be accessed remotely.

29. What are the advantages for a business to use surveillance cameras?

Anjer CCTV cameras can protect employees from criminals, quickly end employee/customer or employee/employee disputes, discourage criminal activity with their visibility and help deter employee theft/pilfering. Surveillance cameras may also increase employee productivity by discouraging unnecessary downtime.

30. Won't exterior surveillance cameras get damaged easily by climate and weather?

No. Exterior cameras are constructed of durable materials resistant to heat, snow, rain, and ice. Additionally, images transmitted during bad weather remain as clear as they are when sent during quiet weather.

31. Is a security camera system affordable for a small business?

We believe small business are some of our best clients because small business owners personally appreciate the value of the additional management control and loss prevention that our security camera systems provide. Unlike larger firms who may have several levels of management, and who may routinely absorb large losses from inventory shrinkage, the success of a small business owner depends on running a very tight operation.

32. What features are included in a basic home security camera system?

Home security systems are available with many features, but basic features alone might meet your needs. A basic equipment set provides magnetic sensors for all vulnerable entryways and has one or more infrared sensors to detect motion inside the home. These sensors link to a control panel that has a loud siren and a connection to the monitoring company, which can dispatch emergency personnel.

33. Will my pet trigger the security camera motion detector?

Home security systems can be fully functional even when pets share your home. First, a typical motion sensor won’t detect a cat, dog or anyone else under 40 pounds. (Sensors with different weight settings are available too.) Second, modern home security technology can distinguish between the movements of humans and our animal companions. Speed and movement patterns are considered along with mass to help ensure that pets don’t trigger false alarms.

34. Can I have a secruity camera without a monitored security system?

Yes, you can. They are usually two separate systems. But if, for example, there was a break in on the first day of your week vacation, you wouldn’t find out about it until days or even a week later if all you had was a camera system. You could have it on video, but most want to get a notification as soon as a break in occurs. That is the main purpose of the alarm system: to provide notification.

35. How many mega pixel are the security cameras?

The Standard for years for security cameras has been 2 MP video quality which is 1080p. Still is a Prominent resolution and solution for security systems but it is not limited though.  2 MP come in Low to Mid-Range to High End cameras that go with DVR system, DVR stands for Digital Video Recorder.  But also come in High-End IP Cameras that comes in 2,4,5,6 and even 8 MP that go with NVR system. NVR stands for Network Video Recorder, which is a high end system.

36. Does the Ansjer security cameras have night vision and how far does it go?

Yes the cameras have night vision, its like watching black and white film. The main purpose of security cameras is for it to be able to see at night when it is pitch dark. All of the Ansjer securtity cameras are 100ft night vision.

37. How much space does the hard drive have?

Security Cameras need hard drives to save recording as a memory that are installed inside DVRs or NVRs. Usually for 4 Camera Package is mandatory to have a minimum of 1 TB or 1000 GB Hard Drive.  For 8 Camera Package and 8 channel DVR is recommended to have at least 2 TB or 2000 GB of space.

38. How much video and or recording time can I get with your security cameras and equipment?

It depends on what type of equipment you have. Many things can impact the amount of video that can be stored.  What memory capability your DVR has, how many security cameras you have, the resolution you use, which all translates into heavier data. The more cameras you have, the more data you’ll get too. You can increase recording by following these recommendations:

a.Add more Hard Drive space.

b.Use Motion Activated recording only.

c.Reduce the number of frames per second each camera is recording.

d.Reduce the recording Resolution.

39. Can someone hack the wireless home security camera system and view the images captured by the cameras?

wireless security camera systems use an encrypted wireless protocol to limit access to wireless networks and communications so that your wireless signals remain private and secure.

40. Can outdoor security cameras be used indoors or vice versa?

Outdoor security cameras can be used indoors but indoor cameras cannot be used outdoors. Dome cameras should not be used outdoors unless protected completely from the elements. And some outdoor cameras are not totally designed to be indoor, where you want as much privacy as possible, so it is always recommendable to use indoor cameras that are more discreet. 

41. Do I need to have power at every single security camera?

Every security camera must have power but you don't need to run or have an AC power outlet next to each camera. All security cameras can be powered with plug in power supplies on a power supply next to your recorder.

42. Where can I place my Ansjer camera units?

Anywhere! With no wires or cords to worry about, Ansjer is designed to go where other systems cannot. Place it on a bookshelf, desk or tabletop, attach it to the wall or ceiling, or mount it in a corner.

43. Can Ansjer security camera detect motion through a window or glass?

No, Ansjer’s PIR sensor cannot detect motion through glass, so a camera positioned behind a window will not create clips when armed. However, it can be faced out a window, or through glass, for use with Live View.

44. Are there security cameras that can follow your movement?

Yes the security cameras with auto recognition can follow your movement. Usually this is done if the security officers detect something suspicious about you. This is the design with the hardware and nothing is related to artificial intelligence.

45. What are the types of security camera systems?

You can find 4 types in a broader sense:

Analog camera: These are the oldest and the simplest of all.

HD camera: These are just advanced versions of Analog camera designed to give better quality images.

IP camera: These are the network based security cameras. These are latest in the technology and have numerous features.

PTZ: These are the wide area surveillance cameras. These are capable of pan, tilt and zoom for better surveillance." 

46. What are the advantages of installing the PTZ security cameras?

PTZ Cameras are designed to give very wide area of surveillance along with remote movement of the footage frame. The camera can be adjusted to pan, tilt or zoom in the image whenever required.
