Home and business security systems serve two major purposes. They allow you to see and record events that occur when you are away and they work as a deterrent. Criminals avoid committing crimes in places where they’re likely to be seen and recorded.
Some fairly sensational cases of frightening acts recorded by baby cams and nanny cams have caused panic among parents and non-parents everywhere. Most people couldn’t even imagine some of the damaging criminal acts that could occur while they’re away from their homes or businesses. Reality TV has given us lots of examples of how quickly and thoroughly criminals can enter your home or business and threaten he people there and remove your valuables.
Business owners need protection from robbers and burglars but they may also need to watch for threats from inside the organization. Sadly, even the best employees succumb to the temptation of a full cash register or a well-stocked supply room. Cameras help business owners minimize these threats.
You may not need to protect yourself or your family from anything as serious as robbery or burglary. Maybe all you need to do is watch a pet while you’re at work or keep an eye on the kids while they’re with a babysitter. Cameras are your eyes and ears when you can’t be there.
They come on many shapes and sizes but every security camera system isn't right for every purpose. You will want to consider many features and benefits such as;
- • Camera locations/coverage
- • Camera types/brands
- • Remote pan, tilt zoom
- • Remote monitoring
- • Picture quality
- • Night vision
- • Ease of use
- • Weather resistance
- • Video storage capacity
