SECURITY SYSTEMS & CCTV
CCTV, NVR, DVR, and WIFI. With so many acronyms and gadgets to choose from, the world of home surveillance cameras can be overwhelming, particularly if you are unfamiliar with home security in general.
The number of surveillance cameras you need is determined by the size of your home as well as the level of security you need in general. At the very least, we recommend installing a camera in your home's main entrance on the first floor.
Outdoor surveillance cameras should ideally be installed at all ground floor entrances. More surveillance cameras can be installed on the ground floor and in any space that you use extensively or must walk through to enter or leave your home for added protection. Security cameras may be used in main hallways on the second or third floors for added security.
In general, most homes would require at least three cameras on two outside entrances and one inside entry.
Indoor Cameras: Indoor cameras, should be installed at the very least on the ground floor of your house. Avoid private areas such as bathrooms or bedrooms, but include any easily accessible space, such as a front hallway, or any area that is integral to your house, such as a living room. Indoor cameras are more likely to be plugged in than outdoor cameras, which could be located further from a socket. However, for plug-in cameras, we suggest providing cellular backup so that they can continue to work even though the power goes out.
Outdoor Cameras: Outdoor cameras, on the other hand, have weather-resistant cases that allow them to withstand harsh temperatures as well as various solids and liquids, such as rain, snow, and hail. Outdoor cameras, as opposed to indoor cameras, are more likely to be wireless due to fewer outdoor outlets. However, it is necessary to remember that wireless cameras can also need internet access.
Video Doorbells: Another form of outside camera that is specifically used on front doors is the video doorbell. Doorbell cameras, which can have a chime or replace an existing doorbell setup, enable people to see and talk to their visitors remotely from a smartphone application or smart home device. When someone rings our doorbells, for example, we are notified not only on our phones but also on our Echo Display, where we can see our visitor in full color.
WiFi-Connected Cameras (Digital or IP Camera): Nowadays, most surveillance cameras are WiFi-connected, which means they have a corresponding software that allows us to view videos, receive motion or person-activated alerts, and remotely monitor our image. This transformed our home surveillance from local to remote; we could actually see what was going on at home from anywhere in the world that had Wi-Fi. We suggest having a smart surveillance camera, which is wired to the Internet, for the most detailed tracking.
