Home security cameras come in many shapes and sizes, but there are some features common to most. For example, there may be one outdoor unit that monitors your driveway and garage entrance; another may have two to three units inside the home or yard, each with its own fixed camera for coverage outside the house. If you choose to use outdoor units, make sure that they are weatherproof and can withstand exposure to the elements.
Another common feature is a "smart motion detector" in the home security cameras. A smart motion detector is a video recording unit that automatically captures video footage of your home or property and you can watch it on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop as long as you have an Internet connection. Most home security cameras have motion-detecting capabilities and will automatically record when they sense movement, and send you an instant alert. These units also have a system that allows them to turn off once they have recorded what they are seeing – but only if it’s safe to do so. Make sure that your video recorder has a system that allows you to do this.
One other common feature of many home security cameras is their ability to offer remote viewing. This allows you to view the footage from several different locations, including your smartphone or tablet, your office computer, or your television – which means you’ll be able to view what you’re watching in real time. Remote viewing is especially useful if you don’t live in the same place as the security camera you’re monitoring. You can view the video footage on the go so you don’t need to be at your home or work to be able to see what’s happening. And with the added power of streaming footage, you can always be sure that you’re being kept safe.
