Every day, headlines about home surveillance cameras and the incredible video recordings they capture appear in newspapers and on the internet. It’s a delivery driver hanging up a fallen flag, and an adorable kitten being pampered by an adult dog at other times. Regardless of the video captured, this new technology has become more affordable, bringing “safety” and “protection” to the workplace.
Indoor cameras do nothing in the way of environmental safety, but they offer considerable cost savings. Indoor cameras can see in low light, and the video stream can be very high quality. Today’s cameras will record video in places like the baby’s room or common areas, allowing the owner to “remote view” their property any time they wish with the use of a smart device app or computer.
Many components are used in cameras designed especially for use in the outdoors to protect them from the elements. Outside, there are heaters and ultraviolet safety housings. Inside components can withstand harsh sunlight while still operating at low levels in the evening. The more advanced outdoor cameras have infrared lighting, which allows them to see in complete darkness. These cameras are ideal for monitoring your property’s perimeter, as well as areas such as breezeways and porches.
Doorbell Video Cameras
Doorway cameras, also known as security doorbell cameras, are the most recent addition to the group. Ownership of this protection technology skyrocketed as component prices plummeted. The cameras are a great way to see who is at the front door without opening it. If you have internet access you can also answer the doorbell from anywhere in the world. The video can be recorded to the cloud for an extra fee.
There are various forms of video storage and capacities available, depending on your needs and budget. The cheapest and highest capacity options are local storage or hard drives. The disadvantage is that you must set up your own computer network and maintain your own equipment. Cloud storage allows you to store your recordings offsite, but it usually comes with a monthly fee.
