Incorporate Home Surveillance to Monitor Your Property
One of the biggest mistakes a homeowner can make is assuming that the holiday season is the only time when home security is needed.
If you wait until the holidays to begin worrying about the safety of your Atherton, CA home, you leave your property vulnerable to invasion the rest of the year. Invest in a home surveillance system now and you can keep your property safe year-round.
In this blog, we’ll discuss the benefits of installing a home surveillance system. There’s never a wrong time to consider home surveillance as an added security feature.
You may already have a standard alarm system, but consider how much more control you have over the safety of your home with a video surveillance system.
Monitor Your Home From Anywhere
Going out of town? Just want to check in while you’re out of the house? Video surveillance allows you to keep an eye on your property when you’re not around.
Sometimes a visitor can be harmless: a delivery person, a neighbor you may frequently visit with, or even someone who you’ve asked to stop by to check on things while you’re out of town. Other times, you may receive unwelcome guests.
In any case, it’s important to have access to see who is at your door or even check in on the rooms inside your house. Because you can access both live and recorded footage from your smartphone, you can check in at any time in any place.
Immediately Know When Anything Happens
As mentioned above, one of the benefits of incorporating video cameras into your security system is that you can see your property at any time —any part of it wherever you have cameras installed.
But what if you don’t want to check in on it all the time, or something occurs while you don’t have the app open? With a smart security system, you can be notified in real-time if there’s motion in a particular area, the doorbell rings or an alarm goes off.
You will receive an image of where the activity was detected and can then go into the app to see what’s occurring.
Watch Surveillance Footage With Ease
We’ve discussed the fact that you can be alerted and view areas of your home both manually and as a result of the system being triggered.
All of this is due to the system being synced with its accompanying app on your smartphone, iPad or other tablet. This technology makes it easy for you to go in and watch footage of the day if you want to review visits from the babysitter, housekeeper or any other guests. Reviewing is as easy as turning on your phone.
Conveniently Manage Your Security System
Smart home surveillance systems allow you to do so much more than just review footage. You can remotely adjust the tilt, pan, and zoom of the cameras with the press of a button.
If you see an unexpected visitor at your door, zoom in or move the camera’s angle to see what they’re up to or get a closer look at a package that may have been left.
Your system also allows you to navigate your view between rooms, so you’re never limited to the footage of just one location.
