American-Based Technical Support. For FREE. Forever. 95% of the time: Without a wait.

Most companies view their service teams as an area to cut costs: outsourcing labor and paying low wages. We believe the opposite - that great, memorable service brings people back and gets them to spread the word.

Our support is 100% free and never expires.

Our warranty is for 3 years.

If you don't like anything, return it within 30 days with the original packaging. No big deal.

Our systems don't fail much but, if our support team determines that we sent you a defective product, we'll replace it. Many of our clients are buying cameras because of a known, specific threat - it is imperative that we get it working asap. That's why we do advance replacements - if we sent you a defective product, we'll send a replacement out before you send the old one to us for testing, and we'll pay for shipping both ways.

Real Review from Richard, who had this to say:

Best technical support of any company. You should train all the others. I definitely recommend Security Camera Warehouse.

Real Review from Joe, who had this to say:

The courtesy and politeness when contacting this company as well as their technical competence has proven to deliver the "best of the best" business models of any technical company I've ever worked with.

Professional quality surveillance equipment that's just built better.




We use higher quality components, and that's a difference you can see.

Not all 1080P security cameras are equal. Many manufacturers use lower quality processor that result in motion blur and compression blur or NVRs that can't process all the camera feeds they claim. Our processor are not only powerful enough to take the most Crisp, Clear video, but also have enough space processing power to enhance images such as cutting through fog with our Defogging enhancement, seeing better in shadows with our DWDR software and True WDR chipsets, and avoiding night blindness with our Headlight Compensation.

Real Review from Dennis, who had this to say:

Should have listened to SCW three months ago when we purchased cameras, NVR, and switch from a cheaper company. I had problems from day one. Support was non-existent... the cheap $150 8 port NVR... would not read all or record.... I purchased a SCW NVR, ripped out my cheap one, and the cameras automatically came on within a couple minutes.

Commercial Grade Security Cameras

The majority of security cameras are sold from a manufacturer to a distributor to an installer and then to you. This means that most camera manufacturers don't ever talk to the customer. Because of this, they focus on cutting corners in a race to the bottom.

We do the opposite; we focus on great quality equipment, instead. That's why our surveillance cameras are built to handle anything life throws at them: from wind, rain, sleet, snow, cold or heat. Although, you wouldn't normally install a security camera underwater, the majority of our models can even work when submerged for short periods of time.

Even our basic models can handle most forms of extreme weather with at least -31 to 140° F temperature ranges and IP66 to IP67 rated dust and water protection.

Support email from Craig, who had this to say:

Just wanted to let ya know that, this morning, New Year's Eve 2017, the temp is -24 below zero and the cameras are still working flawlessly. Thanks again for a superior product.

We lead the pack with Car Grade LEDs in our Infrared Lights. We use either IK10 Impact protection or Anti-Reflective Glass, and all our cameras have Commercial Grade Aluminum and Ceramic Molding instead of the standard plastic.

Two models even have integrated full spectrum white light motions lights so that you can capture color photos and scare off intruders.

Our PTZ models have a snow removal spin that helps clear snow accumulation.

So easy to install that you can set it up yourself

We're all about superior technology that so easy to setup that you won't need to pay an expert to install it.

We make it easy for you with our Admiral line: Just plug an ethernet cable (which looks like a slightly thicker phone line) from your SCW surveillance camera into your Admiral NVR. This one clip-in cable provides the power and video - it will even auto-configure the camera for you, when you plug it in.

Our Admiral line has SCW EasyConnect2.0, which allows you to plug in a SCW IP Camera up to 750 feet away! (The industry norm is ~300 feet).

Mounting, Drilling, and Cabling Advice

These guides are written by in-house installation team and include contributions from a construction expert, a NC licensed alarm technician (most states consider security cameras an offshoot of alarms), and a professional electrician.

Real Review from Nancy, who had this to say:

I am extremely happy with the whole thing! I installed it myself, and it runs like a charm. The camera quality is superb and I like having the option of recording at motion. The hard drive is huge.

Innovative Features, Powerful Software, Easy to Use

Advanced Features Come Standard. Even our most basic IP surveillance cameras have video content analysis including Line Crossing, Intrusion Detection, and Face Detection that can switch on recording or trigger Snapshot. Snapshot can either automatically upload images to your FTP server or send those same images to you as an Email Alert.

You can set schedules for each security camera, independently, with 24/7 Continuous, Motion, or Event Recording at whatever times make sense for you.

Our cameras and NVRs use the more efficient H.265 compression codec, which was invented through a collaboration with Microsoft, Apple, and a few companies. This means that you can record video for 20-40% longer on the same size hard drive.

Our Philosophy on Recording Means Not Missing Important Events

Many consumer grade CCTV cameras use sensors to trigger the camera to turn on. This is bad design as there's a 0.3 to 3 second delay that can cause the camera to miss what happened. Our security cameras are on 24/7 even when in Motion or Event Only Recording Mode. With Motion or Event Recording, it watches the footage for you and removes video where nothing happened before removing video that matters. This means that not only do you not have a delay waiting for the camera to turn on, but you can even set the system to keep up to 30 second before or after the event, so that you see what happened before it happened.

Watch your security cameras wherever you want - without paying any monthly fees.

Inside your NVR is a little web server. When you watch your cameras remotely, that's what you connect back to. That means that there's no SCW server to go down or monthly bills to pay for viewing: it just uses the internet connection you already have. We'll help you get it up and running over the phone or screenshare.
