How will a 24 hour camera system help me?
A proper surveillance system is as important to your day to day activities as it is to your security.
You can monitor your property from anywhere in the world, have a 24 hour recording of everything that goes on, and of course have the footage you need in cases of breakins, theft, misconduct, and anything else you wish you had the proof of.
Don’t security cameras look terrible?
This, absolutely, used to be true. Those systems used a low resolution analog camera recording to a VHS tape loop. Even brand new, it looked horrible, and even worse, a tape loop will overwrite it self when it runs out of space. Every time it overwrites, the quality gets worse, and worse.
So what changed?
Technology changed, digital cameras happened.
Modern surveillance systems use an extremely high resolution digital image sensor, and record to computer, DVR,or server. What this means is, what the camera sees is exactly what gets recorded. It doesn’t get degraded by wear and tear, cables lengths, interference, and all the other things that plagued analog systems.
Your night will look as clear as your day.
Can i afford this?
Absolutely, as technology gets better prices generally go down. Personal digital cameras used to cost thousands, and now you can get one at a dollar store.
The same theme applies to digital surveillance cameras, they used to be incredibly expensive, and while not available for a dollar. $150 gets you more camera than you will believe.
A standalone DVR can be outfitted with 16TB for under $1000, which can provide months of video storage.
Ok, you got me, tell me more.
These types of cameras are all IP based and ethernet connected. So this means they are devices on your network. What this means is you can connect to them and view from any computer, tablet, or smartphone also on the network. You can view live video in real time, playback recorded video, download recorded video, and manage recordings. All from a simple webpage.
Even better, you can access your cameras from outside your network. Watch your property from home. Watch from your smartphone anywhere.
Easily configure your cameras to email or text if they detect motion when they shouldn’t, like after business hours when the building is supposed to be empty. Get your text, and then log in to see why the motion alarm went off. Don’t wait until the morning to find out you have been burglarized, catch the criminal in the act and alert the authorities.
As i hope you can see, a surveillance system is essential part of any business these days.
