Monitor Your Home from Anywhere with a Security Camera System
Always Know What’s Happening at Home
Life is hectic, and sometimes we forget. We forget to close the garage door when rushing to work and getting kids to school. We don’t recall if we locked the back doors to the patio. And if things were really hectic, we might not remember if we turned off a gas fireplace or burner.
Is there a way to have another set of eyes and ears looking after your house when no one is home? That’s where a security camera installation for your Buckhead, GA home can help. With today’s smart cameras, you can monitor your home from anywhere that you can connect to the internet.
Today’s smart security cameras are packed with features to make it easy to worry less and get peace of mind that everything is OK at home. And when it’s not OK, you’ll be the first to know to take the appropriate action. Read on to learn more!
Depending on your needs, you can have a variety of cameras. Some camera models have specific uses, like doorbell models. Cameras like Control4’s video doorbell give you video and audio capability so you can answer the door whether you are elsewhere in the house or across the country. If you have a package delivered or need to give instructions, this type of camera keeps an eye on your entries and let you manage visitors.
Outdoor-rated cameras are designed to withstand rain, heat, and cold. They are best for keeping an eye on your property, whether at a gated entry, your backyard, or the house's perimeter. Most modern cameras have motion sensing and night vision capabilities. These features are not created equal, so if they are particularly important to you, we can guide you to the best models for each purpose.
Two-way audio is another newer capability that may be of interest in certain areas of your property. Inside, you can use it to communicate with a child at home or even to tell the dog to get off the sofa! From a security standpoint, if an intruder gets in your house and you're notified of the movement, you can shout a warning that the police have been called and that they've been recorded. That should give a perpetrator pause to continue!
A step up from recording events with motion detection is continuous recording. For properties that require a higher level of security, you might want to have video footage recorded whenever you're not at home – or even when you are if you have a large property. These systems typically store footage on a networked video recorder, which has a high capacity computer hard disk that can save thousands of footage hours. The newest systems have advanced features for the detection of people, animals, vehicles, and more. Should an incident occur, you can quickly get to specific events amid large amounts of recorded footage and determine what needs to be done.
Depending on your needs, a variety of continuous recording cameras can be used. Bullet style cameras work well for monitoring specific outdoor areas, and dome cameras with wide viewing angles can be employed discreetly in indoor areas you might want to watch. Your video footage can stay on your system at home, but you can monitor a live camera view or see an incident on your smartphone from anywhere with internet connectivity.
