The CCTV audio mic is a sound collection device for synchronizing the video and audio recording system. Figuratively speaking: the CCTV camera is the eye, and the CCTV mic is the ear. The simple CCTV audio mic is composed of a microphone and an amplifying circuit. Therefore, the CCTV mic and the microphone have a big difference in circuit design. The CCTV audio mic can be directly connected to the DVR, the active speaker, the earphone, the sound card, etc., and the microphone needs to be connected to the power amplifier. The difference in the circuit design principle is that the CCTV mic is not the same as the device connected to the microphone. The difference in the location of the application leads to the difference in the area monitored by the microphone and the CCTV audio mic. In general, the CCTV mic used for monitoring is designed to be highly sensitive and omnidirectional, while the microphones are sensitive and directional, and they must be aligned.

Most of the surveillance CCTV audio mics on the market are designed to be three-wire, red (power positive), white (audio positive), and black (common). For the wiring method, please refer to the wiring method of our previous article.
