Video Security Cameras

The days of peeping out the peep hole to see who is knocking on your door are quickly trailing in the dust behind today’s security cameras. Home security cameras are becoming an increasingly popular way for people to protect their property. In the past, security cameras were considered an exclusive privilege of the wealthy. However, with today’s booming technology, video surveillance and many other high-tech products are becoming increasingly affordable.

Most video security systems consist of several cameras, although sometimes only one of the cameras visible. It is very easy to hide security cameras within your home. They can be concealed in smoke detectors, telephones, lights and even in the frames of artwork. Sometimes you think you are looking at one thing, like a flower pot, when you are actually staring right into the lens of a hidden security camera!

Remote monitoring is another amazing feature that most security cameras have. With remote monitoring, someone with the proper equipment installed on their personal computer can look in on a video surveillance system at another location. This is how many homeowners keep an eye on their home even when they are away vacationing. This feature is becoming increasingly popular for parents who want to check on their older kids who are home alone after school. It is also greatly appreciated for babysitting purposes because it allows you to make sure your child are being treated properly.

You have a few options as far watching the cameras go. You can watch the live footage if you are home or at a computer that is hooked up to your system remotely. You can also record the footage onto videotape or digitally. Keep in mind, it is even possible to record sound at the same time depending on your system configuration. If you are planning to record both video and sound in a public place such as your business, you must warn consumers that they are being filmed and recorded. These rules do not apply to privately owned homes.
