You Never Know What You Will Catch on Home Security Cameras

Home Security Camera Systems can provide you with great video coverage of what happens outside your home.  These cameras can even provide high def security footage with MegaPixel IP cameras

Home Security Camera Systems Protect More than Just Your Family

No matter where you live, unfortunately bad things can happen right near where you live or where your kids play in the streets.  From cars barreling down the road, to shoot-outs to terrorist activities.  The worth of security cameras has been proven to provide evidence that can help to clean up the streets where you live and where your children play.  The installation of a home security camera system is a great step to help ensure the safety of your family, friends and property.  These cameras can provide a silent witness of exactly what happens around your home.

Most homeowners, when they install home cameras intend to watch their children playing in the yard, or perhaps have recently had a neighbor kid vandalizing their property and just want it to stop, but not many expect their cameras to be used to provide evidence of a rolling shootout down the streets of their residential neighborhood.  However, once the cameras are in place, it is amazing what they actually capture that you never expected to see in your own yard.  A man in Topeka, Kansas caught one such crime, and his surveillance footage is now prominently displayed on the local news because his outside home camera caught 2 SUVs chasing each other down the street shooting at one another while children were playing on his block.  With a little luck and some good police work, these perpetrators will hopefully be removed from the streets.

High Definition HDTV Resolution IP Camera for Home Security

Home Security Cameras come in many sizes, shapes and varieties.  Outdoor home surveillance cameras can be used to see who is coming to the front door of your home, stealing packages from your stoop, taking mail from your box or messing with your cars parked in your driveway.  These cameras are an extremely important part of a good home security plan, because they provide you with an instantaneous view of what is happening outside your home, so that you can know before you open the door who is knocking.  Outdoor cameras are also likely to capture video evidence if crimes are happening in your neighborhood, a view of the street might deliver the make and model of a perpetrator’s vehicle, or perhaps a view of who was walking up and down the streets casing out for a burglary.  Indoor security cameras for the home can also be integrated into a home security camera system, providing you with a clear view of what happens inside you home, and are very popular for monitoring children playing, babysitters while you are out to dinner, nannies who are in your home during the daytime, maids as they clean up (or out) your home and much more.  These cameras can record side by side with outdoor security cameras for a complete home security system.

The newest technology security cameras for home are high-definition megapixel IP cameras.  These cameras deliver High Definition Video quality, which means that you can zoom in on the live and pre-recorded footage to get a clearer image of what is happening around your home.  These cameras connect to your home network with a CAT-5 network cable, streaming the HD video over the network to a computer running an NVR software, which records from the cameras and provides remote access to user’s laptop, tablet, iPhone, iPad or Android devices.  These high-definition cameras should definitely be a consideration for new home security camera installations, dependent on budget.

Family Burglarized for 5th Time Catches Criminals on Camera

Wide video home security cameras are a great choice to show you What happens on your property, but are not always the best at delivering distinguishing characteristics to show the WHO.

Wide View Cameras show “What” happens

A family just outside Dallas in Garland, Texas has been victimized 5 times by burglars and theives.  Two of these occurences have reportedly happened within a two week span.  Joe Thompson, the homeowner, states that “this is really an indication of the times (we live in)”.  Unfortunately, he is right.  many people are victimized by thieves and burglars every day.

After previous burglaries, Joe and his family installed security cameras to help provide evidence if it were to happen again.  Luckily, this time, they did catch video of the individuals on their home security cameras, and are asking everyone to take a close look at the video (full video and newscast found here), and please call authorities if you recognize the individuals.  This latest theft has robbed them of thousands of dollars in tools, at a time when families cannot afford that type of loss.

When planning your home security camera system, we recommend using wideangle cameras like the one shown in this video to provide an overview of what happens on your property.  This gives you the “What” happened.  Then we recommend 1 or 2 cameras in key areas that are zoomed in to provide a better facial recognition of persons, so that you can see the “Who” and provide optimum evidence to police to help facilitate identification and hopefully capture of perpetrators.

View what happens at your home with enough clarity to see WHO is doing it with our New High Definition IP cameras

High Definition MegaPixel IP Cameras show the “Who” and the “What” at once

Our newest option for home security, is our High Definition MegaPixel IP cameras, which provide higher quality video feeds than traditional security cameras (up to 25 times the resolution of Traditional CCTV cameras), allowing you to see the “Who” and “What” together with a single camera in many instances.  These new HD cameras allow homeowners to have greater coverage with even fewer cameras than traditional CCTV cameras.

Home Security Cameras Prove Useful Again

Home Security Cameras, like our CD-5261 Outdoor Infrared Bullet camera help protect your home and neighborhood by providing a silent witness to everything that happens around your home.

Home Security cameras help protect your neighborhood

A forward-thinking resident who installed home security cameras has shown how they can pay off.  His cameras caught someone who is suspected of starting a house fire in his neighborhood.  This abandoned house caught fire not once, but twice in the same day.  The fact that he installed surveillance cameras around his house has provided the only evidence of who perpetrated the crime so far.  See more about this news story

Installing home cameras is a great idea for protection of your home and property in cases of theft and vandalism, but your cameras also may provide evidence of other crimes that happen in your neighborhood.  This can effectively help your entire community become safer.  As the resident says in the news coverage, “…it’s not (about) getting someone in trouble, but protecting my own neighborhood.”

Home security camera systems like our traditional CCTV cameras or high Definition IP cameras can provide you with video evidence of what happens in or around your home.  Systems vary from basic 1 or 2 camera budget systems up to MegaPixel High Definition camera systems delivering HDTV resolutions.  Each of our systems also include support for viewing your home remotely over your existing internet connection from PDA phones like iPhone, Android, BlackBerry or Windows phones.  This way, no matter where you are, you can see what is happening at your home in real-time with NO MONTHLY FEEs.
