Learn about security cameras and home surveillance cameras

For the home or business, Internet wireless security cameras are a great way to monitor remote video. The system camera will transfer signals through a LAN adapter or wireless network on to a specific IP (Internet Protocol) address. This can be a great way to keep a watchful eye on your property while you are on vacation or out of town. There are some Internet systems that will alert you via email if there is any detection in movement.

The cameras that work with home surveillance systems are power driven, normally by 9 volt batteries, providing up to 10 hours of energy. They are very powerful cameras, as even the slightest amount of movement will activate the motion sensors in the security cameras. Once the camera has been triggered, it will immediately start recording video, taking pictures, or transfer the live video feed to another computer.

Unless monitored 100% of the time the video cameras don’t prevent crime. They are a static device to tell you what happened but they don’t prevent crime. Can you imagine the cost of paying someone to monitor the security camera at your house, 24/7? I can’t. Yet without the monitoring you aren’t secure.

What are the video surveillance cameras good for? We had a couple in the lower lever of our home to monitor what the boys were doing down there playing. Basically we used them to see who was telling the truth when fights started. The cameras weren’t in their bedrooms or the nannies bedroom but in the big main room. No, we never caught the nanny doing anything wrong. We did learn that one boy had developed a sleeping problem and would get up and play for hours after everyone else was in bed. That was about all we expected of it.
