We all want to do all we can to keep our­selves, our fam­i­lies, our pos­ses­sions, and our prop­er­ty as safe as pos­si­ble from break-ins. For­tu­nate­ly there is so much new tech­nol­o­gy in home sur­veil­lance. Here are some cut­ting edge ways to keep your home safe and secure!

Video Qual­i­ty

New devel­op­ments in sur­veil­lance cam­eras mean that you can now get high­er video res­o­lu­tion than ever, so that in the case of a break-in, the intruder’s face will be much eas­i­er to iden­ti­fy.

In the past, secu­ri­ty cam­era footage was record­ed on video­tape. To view it, you would have to phys­i­cal­ly get the tape. With Cloud stor­age, footage can be stored for long peri­ods of time. The Cloud gives much more band­width, allow­ing for high­ly afford­able stor­age, and easy acces­si­bil­i­ty at any time via high speed inter­net. In fact, most peo­ple are able to view secu­ri­ty cam­era footage from their hand­held devices.

Sur­veil­lance cam­eras with 360-degree cov­er­age are also becom­ing pop­u­lar. Rather than the old­er pan-tilt-zoom cam­eras, 360-degree cam­eras have a far wider range, and are cost-effec­tive, allow­ing home­own­ers to view a larg­er area with just one cam­era.

Fool­proof Devices

Secu­ri­ty sys­tems may seem com­pli­cat­ed to use and install, but with new tech­nol­o­gy these sys­tems are becom­ing more user-friend­ly. The tech­nol­o­gy used in home sur­veil­lance is becom­ing sim­pler. The more func­tions, but­tons, and gad­gets a secu­ri­ty sys­tem of device has, the high­er the like­li­hood of some­thing going wrong is. Whether due to human or machine error, com­pli­cat­ed sys­tems can eas­i­ly fail.

New tech­nolo­gies are allow­ing for fur­ther ease of use and install­ment. Most home secu­ri­ty sys­tems can be con­trolled with just a smart­phone!

High speed inter­net and more stream­lined tech­nol­o­gy also allows for quick­er response times in the case of a break-in.

The more tech­nol­o­gy advances, the more acces­si­ble, afford­able, and effec­tive home secu­ri­ty will become. Already, there are amaz­ing­ly sim­ple and effec­tive ways to pro­tect your­self, your fam­i­ly, and your home. Vis­it our web­site to learn more about PROTECTION PLUS® home secu­ri­ty options.
