Home Security Cameras

When it comes to choosing a security camera for your home, there is so much to consider. When making your selection, these tips should help you narrow down your options.

There are many reasons why you might want to install a home security camera in your home. Home security cameras can help you monitor the perimeter of your property, and can also help you keep better tabs on household help, childcare workers and worker men who might be coming and going from your home. The main advantage of security cameras is that they act as a major theft deterrent, keeping burglars as far away from your home as possible. They also capture footage of any criminal behaviors outside your home, so that in the event of a home burglary, police will have a chance of catching the parties responsible. Home security cameras are an easy way of keeping tabs on your home when on vacation, or simply at the office.

Making Your Selection

There are so many options and features to consider when choosing a security camera. As with buying any product on the market, it is very important that you know how much you are willing to spend, as there is a huge range of home security cameras that you can choose from. Decent home cameras can cost anywhere from a couple of hundred dollars to thousands of dollars.

  • Hidden cameras vs. large surveillance cameras

 You’ll want to think about whether or not you want people knowing about your security camera. If your goal is to keep tabs on your cleaning help or your child’s nanny without them knowing about it, you will likely want to install a small hidden camera that won’t be noticed. If however, your surveillance camera is intended to keep thieves away, you’d be wise to install a highly visible security camera in an area where thieves will likely see it.

  • Indoor vs outdoor cameras

It’s important to consider where you plan on placing your camera. Security cameras are specially made to work either indoors or outdoors. When an indoor camera is placed outside, it can get damaged by outdoor elements. Outdoor cameras that are used inside are not usually so problematic, but they are generally more expensive to purchase. Why waste your money on a more expensive security camera when you can easily make do with a simpler indoor camera.  

  • Single-channel vs. multi-channel camera packages

How many cameras do you want to install in your home? Do you want one for your front door? Perhaps you also want to install a camera near your backdoor… or maybe one in each main room of your home? Depending on how large your home is and which areas of your house you want to monitor, you’ll have to think about how many cameras you want to purchase. In general, the bigger the package of security cameras, the more value you get for your dollar. If you plan on getting yourself more than one home surveillance camera, you can save yourself money by buying a multi-channel camera package.

The keys to my office went missing, just disappeared last night. I was so frustrated, besides for being embarrassed in front of my employees, I also didn’t want to lose money due to the delay. I called for a locksmith and Justin came over straight away, he suggested re-keying the lock, in case my keys were stolen, I thought this was a great idea, and that’s what we did, he then made new keys for me on the spot.
