Captiva Island is an island in Lee County in southwest Florida, located just offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Originally part of neighboring Sanibel Island to the southeast, it was severed when a hurricane’s storm surge washed away a new channel, called Blind Pass, which had filled in over the years but was reopened during a dredging project in the summer of 2009. Like Sanibel, Captiva is a barrier island to Pine Island (to the east of Captiva and north of Sanibel), however it is much narrower. The only automobile access to Captiva is via the Sanibel Causeway and Sanibel-Captiva Road. Captiva was homesteaded in 1888 and a tiny cemetery next to The Chapel by the Sea has the grave of the original resident, William Herbert Binder (1850-1932), an Austrian. Half the island is in private ownership, with “Millionaire’s Row”, luxury homes on gulf and bay side of “San-Cap” road. The South Seas Island Resort entry gate is at the end of this road. Roosevelt Channel on the east side of the island, is named for Theodore Roosevelt who fished there. Read the rest of this entry »

Wireless surveillance cameras can be a convenient and effective way to improve the security in and around your home. When it comes to outdoor surveillance however, it takes special cameras and equipment to withstand the varying weather and lighting conditions that they will inevitably face. The purpose of this article is to take a closer look at some of the special camera requirements that are necessary to implement an effective wireless outdoor surveillance camera system.

When developing a security plan for the exterior of your home or business, it is important to remember that indoor and outdoor surveillance require vastly different strategies. In some instances, your outdoor surveillance needs might be quite simple. A weatherproof housing and regular surveillance camera may be all you need to get adequate coverage. However, in most instances, outdoor video surveillance requires more careful planning and consideration. Some important things to consider when selecting outdoor wireless security cameras include:

Lighting and power source availability due to camera placement — Exposure to the elements cannot only damage the cameras themselves; it can also severely affect image quality as well. If lighting conditions are poor, or weather severe, your outdoor cameras may fail to provide the clarity you are relying on. Depending on your specific security needs, there are special outdoor cameras you may want to consider. For example, if you have particularly low lighting conditions outside your home, you may want to consider purchasing a special infrared camera that can function with little or no light at all. Alternatively, perhaps you need to monitor an outbuilding or location where there is no existing power source nearby. You may need to consider purchasing a special solar powered surveillance camera instead. Read the rest of this entry »
