Sometimes, installing a home security system may seem like overkill, but if you want extra peace of mind while you sleep; while you’re out during the day; or when you’re away on holiday. Equipped with motion sensors, two-way audio and even facial recognition, the security camera system will keep your home secure – no matter how far away you are.
Home Security Camera Australia and their crucial part
Keep your loved ones and your home safe!
Buy the best home security systems in Australia, online or in-store, from Trantech. You’ll get a good deal on security cameras from our leading’s brands. Plus, wireless security kits allow you to keep your home safe with one, two, four, or more home security cameras.
While your home security camera system will provide notification of an event, CCTV allows you to either capture evidence through recorded video or the ability to remotely monitor your property to check if any intrusion may happen.
CCTV can be installed externally as a deterrent to potential intruders and internally to give you the ability to keep an eye on kids, pets or nannies.
Digital video recorder – the best choice for your home security
A security camera is frequently used in conjunction with networked recorders or DVRs, allowing recorded footage to be stored in several ways, such as using hard drives or devices connected to cloud storage.
These options permit users to live-view or later check their footage remotely via their corresponding applications on their phones.
However, cloud storage requires users to consider their actual needs carefully. While many camera providers offer free cloud storage for a limited number of days (typically seven) before it is overwritten or deleted, others are strictly subscription-based. If you require more than a week’s worth of video storage, you can subscribe to a 30-day plan and not have to worry about losing important footage before you’ve had a chance to review it and download it.
If you’re concerned about privacy and would rather not store your video in the cloud, look for a camera equipped with a microSD card slot so you can store it locally.
A few cameras will even let you save a video to a portable USB or NAS drive, but these devices are few and far between.
When you need to check everything outside of your house in a continuous timeframe, it is advised to look for a camera that offers a CVR (Continuous Video Recording) plan. This option is where the camera is always recording and will store up to 30 days of 24/7 video in the cloud.
Tip: Come to Trantech; if you are looking for the H.264 DVR with support for multiple video inputs, including HD-TVI (High Definition Transport Video Interface), then the H.264 DVRs from Dahua Surveillance are the perfect solution.
Video surveillance and alarm verification as part of your home security camera Australia system
Offers important benefits:
Remove false alarms.
Reduce response times.
Help prevent crimes in progress with real-time alerts sent to mobile apps via push notifications.
Provide visual proof in the event of insurance claims.
Verification of alarm activations via the Internet or GPRS (mobile network) is offered as part of video monitoring of your site.
Not only will the system detect the presence of an intruder, but when the camera is activated, it takes a video clip – which allows us to confirm the cause. An Infra-Red (IR) camera is required for night vision.
Also, an alarm verification allows quick response from Police and Patrol services.
Resolution of home security camera Australia
It’s useless having a security camera if you can’t identify who or what the camera is targeting.
A camera that captures video at 720p will usually offer a sharp picture, but 1080p video offers more detail and is the most popular resolution for these devices. It does not require lots of storage capacity and can be viewed on nearly all phones, tablets, and PCs.
Other than that, nowadays, 2K and 4K resolutions have been considered favourite home security camera systems choices. Still, you’ll need a powerful network connection and to stream it without experiencing choppiness or lag, and you’ll need lots of room to store recorded video, which may result in expensive cloud storage fees.
No matter the resolution, try to choose a camera with a relatively wide field of view (viewing angle) and ensure it can capture a clear night vision video. Most cameras use IR (infrared) LEDs to deliver black-and-white night video, but there are a few out there that use white light to deliver full-color night video. Look for a camera with a night vision range of at least 30 feet.
Motion and Sound Detection
Home security cameras are equipped with a motion sensor to trigger the camera to record video when motion is detected.
Check out their abilities:
The sensor can also initiate a push alert to your phone when activity is taking place.
Wireless security cameras work through your home internet connection, taking still pictures and/or video (usually 30 seconds or less) when they detect movement.
You are notified immediately via SMS or email when there’s footage to be viewed. Some of them can even upload pictures and video instantly to the cloud for safekeeping and immediate viewing.
As well as calling up live video of your home any time you like, most cameras have motion sensing capability and tell you if something’s amiss, notifying you via email or SMS when there’s unexpected movement.
Wireless security cameras have come along because they were too technical for the typical user to set up. Most now come with software that allows you to access photos and videos through your smartphone, as well as a web-connected computer, no matter where you are in the world. Setting them up takes just a few minutes, and just about anybody can do it.
For an extra layer of security, look for a camera with sound detection that can let you know if somebody is out there, even if they’re out of range of the camera lens and the motion sensor.
If the camera has a microphone for sound detection, chances are it has a speaker as well and offers two-way audio communication that allows you to speak with (and listen to) whoever is outside. This feature comes in handy when dealing with annoying solicitors and can scare off porch pirates and warn other unwanted visitors.
Tip: You’ll probably have to tweak the sound sensitivity settings to avoid alerts from barking dogs, loud cars, and other random noises.
