Hidden CCTV Cameras or Visible Ones – which are the best?

One of the best decisions you’ll ever make when it comes to home security, is choosing to invest in a high quality CCTV system but how do know which option is the best – hidden or visible CCTV cameras?

Obviously, hidden cameras are exactly what you assume they will be – cameras that are hidden out of sight. They’re more often than not placed inside another item within your property, to hide the fact that they’re there but still have the ability to record what they see.

Visible CCTV cameras, on the other hand, are out there for all to see, leaving no one in any doubt that they are being watched and possibly recorded. They are the ultimate visual deterrent when it comes to protecting your home and more often than not will discourage an intruder from attempting to break in to your property.

When it comes to which option is best for you, it all depends on your individual needs and requirements. Most homeowners tend to go for visible cameras, especially outside, as they do act as a strong visual deterrent, as well as being able to capture and record CCTV images/footage.

However, when it comes to indoor surveillance, many people opt for hidden cameras rather than visible ones, as large visible cameras can on the whole look a tad unattractive and intrusive within a home environment but in saying that, the dome camera is a very smart, compact CCTV camera, which comes in a variety of colours these days to blend into their surroundings and are becoming ever more popular.

To conclude, there’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to which option is the best, hidden CCTV cameras or visible ones. It simply comes down to individual needs, requirements and more often than not, budget.
