Video cameras seem to be almost everywhere these days, thanks to smartphones and other digital technology. As the equipment continues to improve, many homeowners are learning the benefits of using cameras to protect and monitor their homes. But not all home security systems are created equal, and working with professional Crown Point security camera installers can help you get the most out of your home surveillance system. Learn why the security experts at Phil & Son, Inc. have been trusted to install local security cameras in businesses and homes for decades.
Today’s home security cameras are designed to be easy to use, and that’s led many manufacturers to design and market cameras that can be set up and operated very easily. But home security can often be more complex than simply pointing a camera at your door and turning it on. You’ll need to consider the surface where the camera will be mounted and any weather conditions that may affect it, as well as determining the proper placement to ensure you can see everything you wish to monitor on-screen. Consider if there are any roadways or sidewalks you’d like in the view and the most likely entrance and exit points of your home or property. Can these all be captured with one camera angle, or will multiple cameras be needed?
Home video surveillance is a great way to give families peace of mind, and building a secure video monitoring system is easier with the help of an experienced technician. A Phil & Sons, Inc. team member can show you the right security cameras for your needs and discuss how and where they will be best used around your home. And if you’ve got a smart thermostat or other home automation technology, we can show you how these devices will work together.
Better, smaller digital cameras have spurred new interest in home video surveillance, but the technology and systems behind these devices are far from new. Stores, offices, and schools have all been using video cameras for many years, and Phil & Son, Inc. has installed countless commercial surveillance systems throughout Lake and Porter Counties as well as the south suburbs.
