Thinking Of Adding An IP Security Camera To Your Home Surveillance System?

Posted by Global Vue on 27/11/2015 07:31:00

Internet Protocol (IP) cameras are digital video cameras which are used for both commercial surveillance as well as home security. Over the past few years, they have become more widely available, affordable, and as the technology is always improving, more reliable as well.

An IP security camera system is certainly the most reliable and future-proofed surveillance and security system available today, which is why people all over the world are making the move from their old analogue systems to the new form of video surveillance.

What Are The Main Features Of An IP System?

One of the major advantages of an IP system is their ability to be set up in such a way that you can view them from anywhere. This is a huge comfort, particularly in a home security system, as you can be shopping in your local town centre without having to feel nervous about your home’s security.

Similarly, you could be sailing across the Adriatic on a luxury cruise liner, and still be able to see the state of your house; which is particularly useful if you’re worried about your kids having a house party whilst you’re away.

With most IP security camera systems, you can actually set up an email system which will alert you in the event of anything occurring at your home; from a parcel being left at your door to a group of opportunistic thieves trying to enter your property. These systems can also be automated to contact the authorities as well.

A Fast And Personal Home Surveillance System

Having a camera, for example, send you a still picture when something moves into its line of sight during certain, pre-defined hours can give you a dual-layered sense of protection. Firstly, you will receive an immediate warning, which sees the system email you several stills of the movement it captured for a few seconds. As you can set your mobile device to vibrate or make a noise when you receive an email to a certain email address, you can get instant alerts to your home’s status.

Secondly, you can actually view what is going on through the cameras in your system. Whether it was a cat straying into your back garden or something a little more suspicious, you will quickly and easily be able to ascertain the threat.

Easy Integration

IP cameras can be quickly and easily integrated and installed into your existing IP system, and thanks to their Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities, they can be fitted into your home in a very short period of time.

Once your home has an IP system in place, you will be essentially future-proofed. IP cameras are going to be around for a long, long time, and any innovations will not re-invent Internet Protocol but, instead, will continue to build upon and improve it.
