Home security cameras have been growing in the market over the last 10 years. Trust us, we have been around to see it. Now it seems like everyone is trying to get into the home security game, and offering cameras and camera systems for homeowners. Even Wal-Mart and Home Depot have started selling some very rudimentary models. It is really great to see our industry exploding because of the need for these valuable devices and systems, but at the same time it can be more than a little confusing for customers who are looking for protection at their home. Where do they turn? What equipment is right?
When it comes down to selecting a home security camera system for your home, there is never a one-size-fits-all approach. Every home is different and every situation is different. That is why selection is key. A professional in the home security market will have options for every budget range, providing various features and functions from which to choose. Next is education. Your Home Security camera provider must be able to provide you with an education on what features you really will need, want and use. Every system is not created equal, which is why not only having a wide selection, but also having a knowledgable professional is important. Your home security cameras need to work for YOU and YOUR HOME. Otherwise there is no point to the system.
For years, we have had customers come in after purchasing an off-the shelf home security camera system, only to find out that no one will install the cameras, no one will support the cameras and the cameras don’t perform the function that was intended. Now this is becoming even more commonplace, with more retail vendors pushing more off-the-shelf one-size-fits-all solutions. Seek out a professional, and visit their showroom to see the selection of cameras before making a choice. It isn’t that more expensive is better, it is that an educated decision is better!
