How To Choose The Right Security System For Your Home
Number of security cameras needed
It’s important to have an idea of the number of cameras you will need to estimate the initial cost of installation. Your property size and layout are important factors when determining how many security cameras are necessary and where they should be placed around your Calgary or Lethbridge home.
Where to install security cameras
Security cameras work best when tucked under the eaves or roofline with an unobstructed view. Dark or shadowy areas that are not highly visible from the street or from inside the house are at risk. Your sheds, pool, garage door and other outdoor buildings should also be monitored.
Inside, have security cameras at all entry and exit points including the front, back and side doors, and the garage entry. Cameras should also be installed near all ground level windows and in high traffic rooms.
Security features and services
A constant monitoring station is important to your home security. Other features to consider:
- Remote video surveillance monitoring allows you to view and manage multiple cameras using any personal computer or mobile device with an internet connection.
- Option to add more cameras at any time. If you purchase just one or two cameras to start with, it’s important to have the option to add more in the future should other areas become vulnerable.
- Image quality is crucial. Video footage is often not usable by law enforcement due to poor image quality. High-quality megapixel images reduce blurring, background noise and use a higher number of frames per second to ensure faces and license plates of any intruders are clear.
Benefits of securing your home
Home security systems help keep your loved ones safe and your property protected. When you install a security system you stand a better chance of avoiding home invasion, vandalism or property theft. Also, if you hire staff to help around your home, security cameras and a surveillance system can alert you to any suspicious behavior.
