Amcrest security systems turn thieves into video stars


Along with eggnog and mistletoe, Christmas brings stories of thieves caught on video as they swipe packages from homes and businesses. You'd think they would know that their chances of being featured on YouTube or the evening news are pretty good now that almost everybody can afford a video security system.

Amcrest, for instance, offers multi-camera high-definition security systems that start at $349.99. That package transmits video over coaxial cable at 720p HD and 30 frames-per-second. It includes four cameras (two bullet-style and two domes) that have night vision and motion detection.

A four-channel DVR equipped with 1TB hard drive can store video up to 15 days of video - more if the system is set up using motion detection or scheduled recording. The Amcrest systems can also transmit video over Wi-Fi and display recordings in a Web browser or on Amcrest's Android or iOS apps.

Other Amcrest systems include more cameras, higher resolution video and larger hard drives. You can check out the whole product line at the Amcrest website.
