The humble microSD™ card is a marvel of storage. This device is smaller than your thumbnail, but yet it can pack gigabytes worth of data. This tiny size has made it the medium of choice of compact electronics devices like smartphones, drones, action cameras and security cameras. However, security cameras offer a challenge to microSD cards, that the other devices don’t.
You see, unlike the other mentioned devices, security cameras are on 24x7. This means that the card will be subjected to data continuously written and re-written on it. This means that it should have long endurance and be robust enough to go through weather changes as the camera could be placed outdoors.
While you could place any microSD card inside security cameras, many microSD cards aren’t specifically designed to be put through the rigours of a security camera. Even some retail grade cards from Western Digital under SanDisk brand aren’t covered under standard warranty terms if used in surveillance cameras or similar environments needing constant reading or writing of data in loops.
This is exactly why you should consider the WD Purple™ microSD™ card for your surveillance needs. These microSD cards are specifically designed for use in security cameras and as such, feature Ultra Endurance and robustness that has been tested in these environments, unlike many retail grade microSD cards.
The WD Purple microSD cards are specifically designed for 24x7 recording. These cards come with advanced features such as a 96-layer 3D NAND tech. Western Digital express confidence in their WD Purple microSD cards and offer a three-year limited warranty on them.
Not only that but these cards are also robust enough to support temperature changes from -25°C to 85°C, which is more than enough for most climates. Plus, they are also humidity resistant. So they can be used in places with abundant rain.
The WD Purple range of microSD cards, when used with compatible cameras, offers card health monitoring capability to help notify users when it is time to service their microSD cards. So they can perform pre-emptive storage management.
As one can see, the WD Purple microSD cards come with a host of features that make it suited for use in surveillance cameras or other use cases that require endurance and robustness. These cards are available in a range of different capacities that start from 32GB and go all the way up to 512GB. So you can choose one that is best suited to your needs and requirements.
