What to Look for in a Security Camera System

Security cameras are a great investment to protect your family and home, but every home’s security needs are different. At ABC Fire and Burglar Alarm we understand that every security camera system should be customized to each home for the best protection possible. With so many home security camera systems on the market, it can be hard to determine what is the best fit for you. Here are some things we suggest you look for when choosing a security camera system. 

 

Real-Time Security Notifications

With a security camera system that is connected to your security system, you will receive video alerts whenever alarm system activity is detected. Having an app with a live view lets you see what’s happening if the system is disarmed unexpectedly, or if the alarm goes off. You can receive alerts by text or email, and customize them by time, day, camera, and type of motion. 

 

Analytic Technology

Video analytic technology uses state-of-the-art artificial intelligence that has the advanced capability to determine whether a moving object in your driveway is: a person, an animal, or a vehicle. With customizable preferences, it can distinguish between someone who quickly visits your front porch (delivery driver) and if an unexpected visitor lingers in the area for too long. These distinctions are made in real-time before alerting you (or not) depending on your preferences. 

 

24/7 Recording

24/7 continuous recording allows you to capture footage around the clock. You can access your live stream and recorded video remotely anywhere you are with your smartphone or tablet with alarm system events and video analytic-triggered clips are noted in the interactive playback timeline. With our 24/7 continuous recording, encrypted video footage is recorded directly onto a microSD card for extra security.
