If you want to install a security camera surveillance system in your home or workplace, but don’t want to spend large sums of money, then this is the article for you. Today you are going to learn how to make and install your own camera system for less than $100, that will also enable you to monitor a live feed from any computer with an Internet connection, or any mobile phone that is capable of displaying video.
Believe it or not but you do not have to spend hundreds of dollars on a security camera surveillance system that is purchased from an electronics or specialist security store. If you purchase your system from a shop like this it will cost you far more than you actually need to spend. This is because the components you need to make your own are not very expensive at all.
Basically, all you need to be able to make your own fully-featured surveillance camera is a digital web camera, a computer of some description, and surveillance software. You set up the camera in the desired position, connect it to the computer, then the surveillance software catches the live feed from the camera.
From here you can record the feed, monitor it securely from any other computer with an Internet connection, or even from a mobile phone. This way you can have pretty much 24/7 surveillance of your property, of your home, of your workplace. Also, it won’t cost you anything more than $100 to make this system, whereas you would have to spend over $400 purchase an equivalent security surveillance camera system.
