Choosing the right cameras is only a small part of putting your surveillance system together. At least as important, in the long term, is deciding how you’ll record and store your video. The best solution will depend on your needs and how you anticipate them changing. While large deployments at government institutions or campuses will usually depend on server-based solutions, we’ll be focusing on...

Unlike a camera used for other purposes, surveillance gear rarely allows you to make changes to the environment you’re recording, so it must be able to work in the conditions in which it’s installed.

We are so past baby monitors these days. There used to be a time when a good baby monitor with two-way audio (what was the baby going to do, we wondered—tell us why they're gassy at 2:00 in the morning?) was expensive, difficult to set up, and easily interfered with. These days, with advances made in home surveillance, you can probably hook yourself up with an indoor security camera and just as...

When your job has you traveling from place to place, through airports, checking into and out of hotels, it’s important to keep your luggage as compact and lightweight as possible.

There are a few things to take into consideration when shopping for speakers. First and foremost, you need to consider the size of your space. For the most part, large spaces require large speakers, and inversely, smaller spaces are best served with smaller speakers. Speakers too small for a room can sound tinny and diminutive is a cavernous space, while speakers too big for a room can will...

TVs are among the most integral parts of our living room and fam-cave spaces. I say this without hyperbole because it’s the one piece of electronics toward which we face all our furniture. Maybe your cable/satellite box, receiver, Blu-ray player, or gaming console is in that direction also, but it’s the TV to which we truly direct our visual attention.

Experiencing double vision when purchasing a television? It's a process that can be as stressful and as life-consuming as anticipating a birth. Okay, that may be overstating it a little bit. But just a little bit. Both decisions will cost you. Both things will bring noise and confusion into your house. Both will require a lot of love and attention. But only one will return that love and attention...

As stubborn as it can be, winter always ends. For a while there it seems as if the cold weather isn’t quite ready to bid its farewell, but literally like clockwork, along comes spring and, with it, our desire to tidy things up a bit.
