Surveillance Power Supplies
Having the right power supply for your surveillance system is crucial to your overall home security. Simply put, without the right source of power, your system is prone to fail. Home Security Store offers a number of different power supply options in order to help you select the one that is right for your office or home surveillance system.
In this section you will find that we offer power supplies for wireless surveillance systems as well as hardwired ones. Of course, the easiest to install are transformers that are simply connected to a device and plugged into a surge protector. More complex, but still not too difficult to install, are hardwired power supplies that give energy to systems that are centrally wired to a power supply box.
When opting for surveillance camera power supplies that require a power supply box, it is important to know how much power is needed and compare this to how much a power supply source will offer. Knowing ahead of time how many currents each camera draws also helps (when calculating how many amps you’ll need remember that half of a single amp is actually 500 milliamps...and adding a little extra to your final calculation helps to assure that you select a supply with enough power). Whether using a single-camera system or a multi-channel one, it is also necessary to assure that each camera is guarded by a fused protective output and each fuse should have an accompanying LED light. Making a determination as to whether or not the power supply features things like over-voltage, over-current and output short circuit protection is also important.
