If you are looking for effective video surveillance for your home or business, then you will want to strongly consider using HD security cameras. You should make sure that the captured video is clear so that any responsible individuals can be properly identified in the event of a crime. You can do this with 720P security cameras. Although there are more powerful 1080P security cameras on the market, 720P cameras are still very clear. They offer great performance if you ever experience a break-in or some other emergency in your home.
Most Alarm Grid customers use their security cameras with an interactive service platform like Total Connect 2.0 or Alarm.com. This way, they can view their security cameras from virtually anywhere using an app on their phones. This is great if you receive notice of an activated alarm while you are away from home. You can check the live feed of your security cameras, along with recorded footage to determine exactly what caused the alarm. If you see a suspicious individual, you will want to contact the police immediately. But if the alarm was caused by an active pet or something that fell over by itself, then you will have peace of mind ind knowing that no help is needed. Either way, security cameras are great in these situations.
Most security cameras have built-in motion sensors and microphones. They will start recording upon detecting audio or movement in the area. You can also use a Stream Video Recorder with Alarm.com Cameras to initiate a 24-hour continuous recording schedule. Please note that Total Connect 2.0 Cameras cannot be used for 24-hour recording. These cameras can only start recording based on sound or movement.
Not every security camera is used with Alarm.com or Total Connect 2.0. For example, the Arlo Cameras are hosed on their own network, and they can be used without alarm monitoring service. However, most Alarm Grid customers choose to use cameras associated with their interactive monitoring service platform. They can even setup their cameras to initiate recordings when a sensor is faulted or when their security system is armed or disarmed. This is perfect for detecting activity in key situations when someone may be entering your home.
With a 720P camera, you will get a trustworthy and reliable recording device that can produce clear and concise video when needed. You can download and save any recorded clips for permanent use if needed. This is great if you ever need to present video evidence to the authorities. It also provides great peace of mind to be able to check in on your home whenever you want and make sure that everything is okay. In terms of video quality, 720P is considered high-definition, and you will have no problem obtaining clear video. These are fantastic cameras for nearly any application.
