Wireless cameras – Pros & Cons

We have gotten quite a few people asking about wireless cameras lately and we would like to go over a few things to know about wireless cameras.  We will give you some pros and cons surrounding wireless security cameras and then you can decide if you think wireless is the way to go for you.

Pros:  The biggest advantage of wireless cameras is that there is no cable to run to the DVR.  This makes it very convenient when you need to put a camera in an area that it would be a little harder to run cable into the wall.  For example, on a cement or brick wall. These cameras only need a power outlet close to them to operate.  If there is no outlet the camera will not be able to operate as it will have no power.

Cons: Wireless cameras are not completely wireless.  As explained before they still must have power with in a small distance so that the power chord will reach.  This can be a problem for some people when it comes to their idea of wireless.  Another issue with wireless cameras is the fact that just like baby monitors and cordless phones they communicate through frequency waves.  If there is anything in the area of the cameras that is putting of the same or even higher frequency waves it can interfere with your cameras causing a disturbance and possibly loss of video feed.  This also means that they are able to be hacked by people who know about hijacking radio frequencies and can be viewed by outside of the area that they are meant to be viewed.  You are also limited on the number of cameras you can have for the same reason. If you have to many cameras all communicating at the same time it can cause interference with the other cameras as well.  For this reason we recommend wired cameras.

In any case you can make the decision yourself.  For some people wireless is the perfect solution and for others they are not.  If you want more information about cameras and installation please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to answer any questions you might have.  Let us protect what matters to you!

Fight back Crime with Surveillance Security Cameras

Every day or every other day you hear stories on the news or internet about a security camera catching someone in the act of doing something.  Sometimes they are caught doing good, sometimes it’s animals doing funny things that make our day but most of the time if you hear about a security camera catching something it’s because someone has done something wrong and is caught in the act.  From discreet hidden cameras to the large cameras you see on the streets for traffic monitoring, cameras are becoming a big part of society today.  For many reasons people add cameras to their homes or businesses to ensure that they are protected from criminals.  Sometimes it’s not only criminals that get caught but people that you know and trust that change their behavior when you are not around.  Nannies for example are getting caught at an alarming rate because of hidden nanny cams that catch them being not so nice as soon as the parents are gone.  Times like this make us really sad and want to protect our children even more than we ever have.  With surveillance cameras you will have video evidence which is admissible in court for any crime or violation that could come your way.  It is very damaging to the criminal and even harder for them to dispute.  Anymore the police department won’t even prosecute or investigate a crime without evidence and video is very compelling evidence.  If you are concerned and would like to find out if security cameras would be a good fit for you or your business please fill out our contact form and we will schedule a free evaluation of your property to give you a customized protection system that will act as your own personal eye witness if you ever need it.

The Rising Need for Security Surveillance Systems

In the world of advanced technology, Security cameras play an important role in safety and security. These security cameras are utilized for commercial as well as residential purposes. The main and foremost reason for getting security cameras is to observe and supervise during times that you cannot be there. It also ensures safety and security by ensuring that your investment is being monitored at all times. Security cameras are widely used in homes, businesses, malls, stores, convenience stores etc. With the amount of robbery and burglary activities on the rise, it is very important to install a security camera.

Sense of control –

When you are away from your home or business there is a sense that you are not completely in control of what is taking place.

As a home owner it may be that while you are at work you worry that your home and belongings are secure.  You may even be a parent that worries that your children are home alone and are doing things they are not supposed to be doing. There is also the feeling that they are not safe because children are vulnerable to predators and negative influence when they are out of our care. Having Security Cameras installed in your home will allow you to monitor and check on them to be sure that they are safe and sound and that they are staying out of trouble.

As a business owner, if your business operates while you are away, you have a lot of money invested in your business and the most common form of theft is theft in the work place.  As our economy is unstable more and more business owners are experiencing a rise in theft and there is no way to prove who is doing it unless you have evidence.  You can eliminate your suspects but in the long run the fact is that if you don’t have the “evidence” they will not admit to it.  Cash register theft, office supply theft and even merchandise theft cost both you and your customers money because as things are walking out the door you have to raise your prices to cover the cost.  With a surveillance system we have solutions for all types of businesses including a POS system that ties right into your register and can watch your cash at all times.

Remote Access:

As technology advances more and more people depend on their smart phones to stay connected.  When our system is tied directly into an internet connection you will be able to log in to your system from anywhere in the world and monitor your home or business at times that you are not able to do it in person.  This allows you to go on vacation, go to your other locations when you are a business owner that has more than one location and to monitor your investment at all times.

Deter crime

The existence of security cameras definitely reduces the chances of robbery and damage in homes, stores, shopping malls and various locations. As the actions are continuously observed it reduces the possibilities because the offenders never want to get caught. If there is a higher chance that they are going to get caught they will likely move on to the next home or business that doesn’t have cameras.

Assists in preserving proof

The data is recorded by the security camera in the form of videos that are regularly documented and saved on the server or DVR. As a result, this data is effortlessly recovered as needed and helps in preserving evidences and documentation if the authorities are involved.

The videos generated by the security camera are a legitimate evidence source and fact in opposition of the offender if the case should go to court.  If any crime is to occur on private property where cameras are installed then the footage is admissible in court and can prove to be quite powerful evidence in a court of law.

Bottom line, Surveillance Systems cameras are our eyes when our eyes can not be there.  If you are interested in getting a customized quote or one of our package specials, feel free to send us a request for more information through our contact us quick form on our home page.  We look forward to hearing from you.

What does security mean to you?

To define security you could go the old fashion route and look up the dictionary definition and it will tell you that Security means safety and freedom from harm, anxiety and doubt or precautions taken to protect yourself from the same.   To take this definition to the next level you need to really evaluate what the word means to you individually.

As a homeowner, security most likely means that your property, family and pets are safe and free from harm.  Security means that you have the peace of mind knowing that when you are not home you don’t have to worry that an outside force is not damaging or destroying what you value the most.  We all work hard for the things that we value most.  As a parent, you want to know that if your children are at home they are not at risk or that they are not doing something that you would not approve of if you were home.  Some people even have the same concerns when it comes to their pets.  Not everyone has children and as pet owners pets are just as important as children and even more they are helpless to defend themselves against someone who would enter your home to take what does not belong to them.  Criminals do not care who they hurt and that is why security cameras have become so prevalent in homes as well as businesses.

That brings me to the next subject.  As a business owner, security means a great deal considering that when you own a business, that is your livelihood and a means to support, protect and secure the family and property that you value outside of the business.  When a business is secure, the employees feel safer, the business owner can feel confident that when his or her back is turned, their livelihood is not in jeopardy.  With security cameras in your business you can keep an eye on your investment at all times by monitoring the video footage onsite or remotely and know that if something or someone does not have your company’s best interest in mind you can take the proper steps to ensure the safety and security of the biggest investment you have.  Cameras are used inside and outside of a business to ensure that all angles are monitored and if anything happens, that could cause the company undue stress or cost money to repair, is not unnoticed.  The most common risk for a company is unproductive employees who are getting paid and are not performing to their full potential.  With cameras inside your business the employees are aware that they are being monitored and studies have showed that the productivity of a business can be greatly increased by just adding a couple cameras.  Outside cameras can monitor people coming and going from your business and for companies that utilize company vehicles, the equipment that cannot be stored indoors is also being monitored.

Theft and vandalism is a very universal crime and can happen both in and around a home or a business.  The effect it has on the person who invests their time and money to have the things they have can be devastating.  Why not be sure that if a criminal has the mind to destroy, steal or damage someone else’s property they are caught in the act.  If you would like us to come evaluate your home or business for security cameras we offer a free no obligation site survey that gives you a good idea of what could potentially save you, your property and your money in the long run.  Feel free to contact us by phone, email or our short contact form on our website and we would be more than happy to schedule a free security evaluation at your convenience.

All About Security Surveillance Systems

When we think of the term security what basically comes to our mind is something which will protect us from problems or harm. The actual definition of security is “the degree of resistance to, or protection from, harm.” We want security starting with our own self to our family as well as for our assets. We try securing everything because as humans we need to feel safe and want to be comfortable. Neglecting security issues can be very dangerous leading to loss of life, to assets and ultimately it trickles down making us insecure and feeling violated.

To avoid these things we need to employ surveillance. For most people, we can’t afford to pay a human to watch over our property all the time so we have to come up with other solutions.
