Security camera installations for homes are on the rise, yet many homeowners still don’t have them. For us, it’s a no-brainer to have security cameras at home due to their myriad of benefits If you’re on the fence about incorporating security cameras in and around your Frisco, TX, home, or want to upgrade the ones you have, read our blog.
Gone are the days where you could only get security cameras that capture grainy, hard-to-see videos. Now, security cameras can capture high-definition footage and sharp night vision. There’s also a variety of indoor and outdoor security cameras to choose from. Covert, pan-tilt-zoom, long-range, CCTV, fixed lens, motion sensor, and dome cameras are just a few.
A great feature of modern security cameras is their ability to provide live video streams straight to users’ phones. If you’re out of town and want to check on your home, you’ll be able to access live footage of your residence with the right security cameras. Even if you’re home — let’s say you’re preparing food in your kitchen — and your kids are in your backyard, you can check on them through your security app on your phone.
Security cameras with two-way audio are the way to go. They offer ultimate convenience and protection. If you’re upstairs and someone knocks on your door, you can see who it is through your phone and speak to them through your phone if you wish. They will be able to hear you, and you’ll be able to hear them. For indoor camera use, two-way audio can let you speak to pets and comfort them when you’re out of the house.
No one wants unexpected activity around their home — but if it does happen, you’ll want to know right away. With motion sensor security cameras, you’ll be able to receive push notifications any time motion is detected. How can cameras detect motion? Software-based motion detection compares changes in pixels between successive frames. If there’s a difference in pixels, it will send out motion alerts. PIR sensor-based motion detection can tell when any change in heat happens. If a person passes by, it will detect the warmth and then set off motion alerts.
