As a world leader in DIY home security systems, Lorex can help set your mind at ease when you're not around. With unrivalled video performance and powerful motion detection, our sleek cameras will help ensure everything is as it should be at home - inside and out.
The vast majority of Lorex security cameras can be used either indoors or outdoors. Some cameras, however, are obviously far more suited to use indoors. Indoor cameras are typically smaller with white exteriors, which helps them blend into the aesthetic better.
Popular indoor locations include:
Effectively monitor doorways or windows that could be used as potential entry points for intruders.
Position cameras in high traffic areas to provide excellent coverage without invading privacy.
Cover objects (such as safes or jewelry boxes) that would attract the attention of a burglar.
The most straightforward and easy-to-use indoor monitoring solution is a stand-alone WiFi camera. These cameras easily connect to your home WiFi and feature powerful HD video, crisp night vision, two-way audio, and advanced motion detetction capabilities.
Avoid running video cables through your house with one of our wireless options. Wireless cameras transmit video wirelessly to a receiver connected to the DVR. Please note that wireless cameras still need to be plugged in (the wireless part takes place between the camera and the recorder). However, since these cameras have a constant power source, they can record 24/7.
If you are adding both indoor and outdoor cameras to your home, a wired solution might be right for you. Both Digital IP (ethernet cabling) and Analog MPX (BNC cabling) systems have a wide range of camera options to suit your needs, including dome, bullet, or even minature dome styles. MPX systems can also incorporate wireless cameras.
An outdoor security camera serves as your first line of defence against home intrusions. All Lorex security cameras come with at least an IP65 weather rating. In fact, some of our top-of-the-line cameras even come with an IP67 weather rating, which provides the best protection against adverse weather conditions.
Popular outdoor locations include:
Ensure to cover main doorways and other easy points of entrance to your house. Most intrusions occur through the front, back, or side doors.
Large areas, like your front yard, backyard, and the sides of your house are easily monitored by installing security cameras up high.
Cars are easy targets for criminals. So make sure you have a camera pointed directly at your driveway or other important outdoor objects of value.
Wired IP cameras are perfect for outdoor monitoring, especially for high-traffic areas. They have the longest color night vision ranges, the highest resolution (4K) and provide around-the-clock surveillance. Select IP security systems can also support up to 32 cameras. If you have a larger home, business or any other type of commercial unit, consider investing in an IP system to help keep you protected.
MPX security cameras offer versatile monitoring, especially for wider areas and detached buildings. MPX cameras use a siamese cable (two connected cables - one video and one power) to connect to a DVR (Digital Video Recorder). This allows you to plug your cameras in close to the DVR and not at the location of the camera. The length of the video signal can be extended up to 800ft, but the camera will need to be plugged in directly at that distance. MPX systems can also incorporate wireless security cameras into the system.
Wire-Free cameras are battery-operated, offer effortless installation and are simple to use. They can be installed practically anywhere on your property, giving you endless placement options. Better-suited for low-traffic areas, these cameras connect to a wireless receiver that is attached to a specific DVR and only start recording once motion is detected.
