Top Features for a Home CCTV System
What to Look for When Securing Your Home
March 19, 2020
With so many security options available these days, it’s easy for a family to help protect themselves. If you’re not sure where to start, here’s a list of some features of the top home CCTV system features.
Home CCTV System Features
Installing a video surveillance system of any size is a crime deterrent, but there are other features that carry more peace of mind for homeowners.
Access. Install a security system and always have an eye on things. Features like motion detection come in handy when you’re away. Night vision helps keep an eye on activity after dark, and mobile alerts keep you in the loop if anything out of the ordinary is detected.
Price. For any family, keeping costs down is a top consideration. Yes, security systems cost money but weigh that against what you’d have to pay to restore damage and replenish stolen items—and don’t forget about priceless peace of mind.
Storage. You’ll want to be able to record footage and store it for a certain length of time in case you need proof of any specific event, including break-ins or theft. CCTVs can connect to DVR devices, or you can store more data in the cloud.
Indoor/Outdoor Surveillance. Your security system is only as good as the footage it captures. Capture more with cameras focused on the exterior and interior of your property. Theft and vandalism can happen anywhere. Make sure the outdoor camera is weatherproof and has night vision, and focus the indoor cameras on doors and other high traffic areas.
Wireless. A system of wireless cameras makes installation and networking a lot easier.
Other features to consider include:
- High-definition resolution
- Adjustable motion sensors
- Two-way communication
- Bluetooth connection
- Smart locks
- Facial recognition
- Smart zoom and follow
- Programmable activity zones
- Push notifications
- Remote access and viewing
- Solar power
- And so much more.
Professional CCTV Installation
If you have a large network of indoor/outdoor/front gate cameras with more angles to connect and cover, you may want to consider consulting a professional security company to set up your system. Connecting your system to central station monitoring also helps to alert you of disturbances 24/7 and ensure help arrives when needed. Contact Security Five for more information on the right CCTV for your home and gain that peace of mind sooner rather than too late.
