Here’s What You Should Want in a Modern Security Camera
Keep Your Home Safe With an Updated Monitoring System
With 2018 just around the corner, there happens to be good news that you should know about:
Home surveillance technology is more advanced than ever – meaning you can ensure your family’s safety, this winter and beyond.
At the leading edge of surveillance innovation are home security cameras. Not only are they physical deterrents to any potential intruders, they also provide several useful features for your Wayzata, MN property.
Whether you already have a home security system or you’re only interested in one, it’s essential you know what modern security cameras can do for you.
Below, we share three of the best features found in today’s best security cameras.
Innovative Video Monitoring
Even compared to security cameras of the past, today’s cameras serve the same purpose: to constantly monitor your property.
The difference is that modern systems can do that better now than ever before.
Some cameras provide 4K resolution, meaning footage is crystal clear and that any potential intruder easily can be detected or identified.
However, one of the best features of today’s top security cameras is facial recognition.
You can upload photos of any welcome guests to your camera system so that if they ever approached your property, your cameras would recognize them and determine a non-threatening situation.
Conversely, if an intruder ever approached, facial recognition software instantly can evaluate a potential threat – and quickly alert you to the situation.
How? We explain below.
Let’s expand on that hypothetical situation.
The facial recognition software in your security camera system has noticed a person approach your property, and it determines this individual is not among your welcome house guests.
Your camera instantly can then send a push alert to your smartphone or tablet, alerting you to the potential intruder. You can view live footage and then evaluate the situation.
Perhaps it’s only someone delivering a package. Maybe it’s a person with more sinister intents. No matter who it might be, though, you can have peace of mind knowing you’ll be prepared whenever your camera senses something abnormal.
Modern security cameras also can integrate with other aspects of your smart home control system.
We at Lelch Audio Video can merge your camera’s motion-detection technology with your home lighting system. During nighttime, for example, landscape lights automatically can turn on when an outdoor camera detects nearby motion.
Or, if someone breaks into your home undetected and an indoor security camera notices an unrecognized face while your alarm system is activated, strobe lights automatically can flash and a siren can blare to send your intruder into a panic.
Live stream and recording technology
Whether you’re out of town or just want to check in with what’s going on at home, today’s best home security cameras allow you to view live footage from either your smartphone, computer or tablet.
You simply can access an application, click on the camera you want to view and instantly watch what’s happening at home.
If you ever want to view past security footage, some cameras even offer DVR and other digital-recording software.
With modern security cameras, you can take home monitoring into your own hands. Even if you would prefer to leave it to a professional, you can give your monitoring company every tool it needs to keep your home safe.
