It is never too late to start thinking of new ways to ensure your home remains safe. There are many different ways to make sure your home is adequately set up so that you can sleep soundly and safely at night. With movies like Paranormal Activity and The Purge, we see security camera systems used that give the characters the evidence they need to support their accusations of ghosts and demons, or give them a sense of safety knowing that they are able to properly monitor their homes. Now this is not to say that you will need to make the investment to find ghosts or keep marauding psychopaths from entering your home, but it is never a bad idea to keep your home monitored and safe from crime. As it is the end of the year however, you may be looking for the best that the new year has to offer. So lets take a look.

The camera also comes standard with an advanced auto focus system that keeps an extremely clear and smooth picture during the entire zooming process, whether it be through the 40x optical zoom or the 4x digital zoom. The cameras use of low dispersion glass is also a very nice touch. Since the low dispersion glass is in place, colors true to their original hues. The F1.6 diameter lens paired with the cameras high sensitivity CCD make for great color contrast even in low light situations.

The cameras 3D Noise Reduction technology also is quite the touch as it will be able to provide high quality video in low light situations which will, in turn, help to lessen the bandwith from the sensor noise.
