What Every Homeowner Should Know About Video Surveillance

June 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 171

Network video surveillance cameras are a veritable solution to your home security needs. Not only do security cameras act as a deterrent against theft and vandalism, but they can also serve as a valuable evidentiary tool to law enforcement in the event that your home is burglarized.

You might be asking, "Why do I need video surveillance cameras? I've never been burglarized." In addition to forestalling burglary, security cameras can be used for a variety of other reasons. Egging, spray painting, toilet papering, and other forms of yard destruction do and can happen, and they're all detrimental to the value of your property. Installing a video surveillance system to catch miscreants committing these acts will provide you with the evidence you need to go to the police.

Cameras can also be used to monitor the activity in the front and back of your home so that you can know at all times what is really going on when you're not looking. Protecting your vehicles and any other outdoor equipment/assets is also made possible with the use of video. Thieves who see security cameras installed above a garage door will know immediately to evacuate the property. With so many uses for home surveillance, it's no wonder that more homeowners today own security cameras.

Where you install your surveillance cameras has a significant impact on image quality and detail. Consider placing cameras above entrances and exits. A bird's eye view provides a clear, refined image of a person's face so you can see who enters and exits your home. Another ideal location to mount your camera is under the eaves of your roof or behind outdoor lights.

One of the primary benefits of network video surveillance (also referred to as IP, digital, wireless, and Internet-based video surveillance) is that you can safely view and monitor your home security cameras from any device with Internet access. Built-in features such as video event management can send you email and mobile phone alerts if your security camera(s) detects tampering or motion.

You also want to consider the various technologies and designs cameras offer today such as day/night visibility, weather-proof and vandal-resistant enclosures, the number of image pixels, high-definition vs. standard-definition video, and body styles (dome, bullet, and box cameras), among others.

Protect your property year-round with network surveillance cameras that offer higher image quality, better visibility, and greater coverage. You simply can't put a price on peace of mind.
