Protecting Your Home With IP CCTV Systems

Posted by Global Vue on 28/08/2015 09:52:00

It's easier than ever to put a domestic surveillance system into place. Thanks to the latest innovations in IP CCTV systems, you can now enjoy camera models which will fit in with your domestic designs and provide reliable, discreet surveillance throughout your home.

Whilst it is true that crime against domestic property is falling all across the UK, more than half a million incidents were recorded over the past year alone. Unfortunately, now that our homes are filled with extremely high-value items in the form of compactly-designed devices, our valuables are more easily stolen due to their portability. Therefore, protecting our homes from attacks and intrusions is an extremely sensible precaution to take.

With advanced, industry-leading IP CCTV systems more easily available than ever, anyone and everyone can now set up their own surveillance systems to protect their home or business premises.

Domestic CCTV Of The Past

Until recently, household CCTV consisted of setting up a few cameras and attaching them to a PVR. Thankfully, due to the drastic advancements in the form of IP CCTV Systems, it is now possible to set up a versatile system that will allow you to keep an eye on your home from anywhere with an internet connection.

Freeing your CCTV cameras from a traditional PVR has a huge range of advantages, such as:

  • On a PVR model, footage can actually be erased, destroyed or, in extreme situations, the machine itself can be stolen! With cloud-based video recording, you can rest easy knowing that your footage is safe and secure.

  • IP CCTV systems feature wireless cameras, meaning that they can be placed anywhere – even in the most awkward of positions. They also come in all shapes, sizes and budgets, so that you can create the perfect system for your needs.

  • Viewing recorded footage can be achieved a range of devices, from the traditional desktop, to your Smartphone or tablet. With some systems, you can view live footage as it is streamed directly from your cameras themselves.

IP CCTV Systems: The Modern Smart Home

Smart homes are increasingly becoming a reality for people all over the world, and security is huge part of this. Personal and family security is regularly described as the most prevalent reason for engaging with a smart home system.

Including an IP CCTV surveillance solution is the first step on the long road to a fully-functioning smart home, and intelligent security is going to be one of the major areas of innovation that we see over the next few years.

There are a range of alternatives to traditional CCTV cameras available as well, with desk and free-standing cameras also suitable for integration into your home environment.
