Security systems with 8 cameras can fulfill many of your security and surveillance needs. Many business and residential applications alike can provide complete outdoor/indoor surveillance by using security systems with 8 cameras. In addition, modern technology has yielded systems that are incredibly versatile such that they can be used for nearly every type of application.
A basic security system with 8 cameras consists of the 8 cameras, a processor digital video recorder or DVR unit with a CODEC application, and a monitor. The cameras are placed in their appropriate locations to provide the maximum coverage necessary to fulfill the security requirements for the system. A coaxial cable is run from each camera to the processor/DVR unit. Each camera has a small wire run from either a wall adapter or power distribution center to provide it with the electricity necessary to function.
