If you are concerned with package theft or break-ins, you may be considering a home security camera system. Cameras can be a great addition to any home security system. At AV Specialists, we install equipment from several reputable brands, providing you with a range of options to choose from. Whether you are looking for a Ring doorbell camera or full-house monitoring, we have solutions for keeping your home protected.
Why to install a home security camera system
Security cameras can help deter theft, break-ins, and vandalism. They can also help prosecute crimes if they occur. If you regularly receive packages, or have front yard decor you don’t want to lose, you may want a camera that covers the front porch or yard. If you are concerned about break-ins, you may feel more secure with a camera system around the perimeter of your entire home.
Security camera options
Incorporating a camera into your security system can be as simple or complex as you need. You may prefer the cameras to be motion-activated to save memory space, or you may opt for 24/7 surveillance. But since all of our cameras include extended memory storage, space shouldn’t be much of a concern. We install only well-respected brands such as LTS, Hikvision, ClareVison, Digital Watchdog, Luma, Visualint, and Ring.
Analog wired cameras
For the budget-conscious, analog wired cameras are a good option. Each camera has two wires, one for power and one that connects to the recording unit.
IP (Internet Protocol) cameras capture digital footage, so are able to have a higher video resolution than analog cameras. Each camera only needs one wire, and they can be connected to a network rather than individually to the recording device.
Wireless cameras transmit via Wi-Fi, and store the video in the cloud so that it can be accessed from anywhere. You have the option of choosing a battery-powered model or one that plugs into an outlet. If you move, they are easy to bring with you to your new home.
Ring doorbell security cameras are becoming increasingly popular. They have several indoor and outdoor camera options that are easy to install. The cameras are activated when someone rings your front doorbell, and the video feed is sent straight to your phone.
Control4 automated video distribution system
For the ultimate control, your home video camera system can be incorporated into a Control4 smart home system. With the Control4 system, you can monitor the security camera feed from any of the automated touchscreens, or even your television.
