Security cameras used to be just for commercial properties and for people with deep pockets, but with the lowered cost of hardware and availability of technology now anyone can monitor their property. Whether it be the driveway or the outdoor swimming pool, you can have cameras watching your home even when you are away. Online integration further allows you to log on to a secure viewing site from any computer, including Iphones, Ipod and most other smartphones to make sure everything is safe and sound.
There are many options that can integrate into a security system, but cameras are truly one of the most valuable options. Cameras can be triggered when an alarm is activated by an intruder, and record the events which follow. These recordings, if required, can then be given to the police as evidence.
