The Benefits Of Security Cameras
Eyes on the Ground: As we have already mentioned, you can’t be at home all the time. So, you can never be sure of what happens there when you are away. Whether you are gone for an hour or a week, a lot can occur. A security camera is your eyes on the ground, keeping you up to date on what is happening at your place.
Burglar Deterrent: A burglar’s biggest fear is getting caught. As if they get caught, they don’t make it away with their haul! Therefore, visible security cameras can deter burglars and vandals from wanting to go near your home for fear of being caught on camera.
Increased Safety: If burglars and wrongdoers are being deterred away from your home then it makes it a safer place for you, your family and any visitors you might have.
Play it Back: If something does occur at your property while you aren’t there, then your security cameras will capture the action. You can then hand the footage onto the police to help catch any wrongdoers. You can also pass the footage onto your insurance company for proof of the incident so that any damages can be repaired and any contents replaced.
Pet Patrol: Got a runaway pooch or do the neighbour’s pets create havoc in your yard? Use your security cameras to check how they are getting in (or out) and take the necessary steps to protect your pets and property.
The Functions Security Cameras Offer
Easy Setup: Most systems are easy to set up yourself or to have installed by an experienced electrician (like the team here at 2E Electrical). That means you will be up and running in no time!
High Resolution Images: Gone are the days of grainy security footage where you can’t make out the details. Modern security cameras feature high resolution, colour 1080p recording so you don’t miss a thing.
Recording and Monitoring: Many security camera systems have a built in hard drive for recording multiple cameras at once. They can be activated by motion detection or simply record your premises continuously. You are also able to install external hardrives to give you more memory space for longer term recording on a larger number of cameras.
Alerts: Want to know if something is happening at your place? Then you can choose to receive alerts to your phone or other devices. They will let you know if motion has been detected or if an alarm has sounded. Which leads us to…
Remote Access: You can log into the camera system at any time from a local connection (connected to a monitor or TV) or via remote access from a mobile device. Live stream exactly what is happening so that you can react and take appropriate action.
Night Vision: Cameras are not much good if they only work during the day! Fortunately, decent home security systems will have night vision capability. This allows you to see and film crystal clear footage during the night as well as during the day.
Playback: The playback function on most camera systems allow you to replay significant evidence or even funny video recordings. And you don’t have to sit with the video on rewind or fast forward. Instead, conveniently navigate to certain days, hours or minutes to see exactly what you missed.
