Home Surveillance Camera Systems
Home Surveillance Camera Systems are essential in ensuring the safety of your family and home. A high quality home surveillance camera system will provide you with video coverage of what happens at your home so that you can provide the ultimate in protection for your family. We are strong supporters of alarm systems, but alarm systems provide no evidence and give no ability to see what happens. We like cable and internet companies too, but when they start trying to dip their hand in the security market, BEWARE! These companies will have you paying high monthly fees, and you will end up spending a lot more and getting a lot less. Our Home Surveillance camera systems deliver high quality video recording, and even remote viewing from iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phones and more, with NO MONTHLY FEEs. Our cameras systems range from budget-minded traditional CCTV camera systems to High Definition MegaPixel IP Cameras and systems. We believe strongly in the fact that families are the most important thing in life, so we have geared each of our systems to help you protect your family.
Home Surveillance System Features
Motion Detection Recording
Motion detection style recording is featured in each of our security camera systems. This allows your system to only record when something is happening on the screen. This means that your system saves a great amount of space, but also you save time playing back, because during playback it will skip from one motion event to the next.
Alarm and Motion Alerts
Integrate your home surveillance cameras with your alarm system or other sensors and systems to turn it into a smart home. Powered by our Platinum CCTV™ Standalone DVR or Alnet® PC-Based DVR software, you can get alerts when doors are opened, pipes freeze, sump pumps overflow, people are walking in your home or more. Your camera system can then alert you via email or text message, so that you are always aware of what is happening. Most of our systems will allow the integration of NO/NC circuits and outputs to allow this level of integration.
Watch Home Surveillance Cameras from Anywhere
Our customers generally appreciate the remote access capabilities of our home surveillance systems the most. All of our Platinum CCTV™ Standalone DVR and Alnet® PC-Based DVR and NVR systems provide you with the ability to watch your cameras from anywhere with an iPhone, Android, BlackBerry or Windows Phones, as well as a computer. This ensures that you can always check in on your home and family, whether you are on vacation, or just out to dinner you are never out of range of your system as long as you have internet connection. Best of all, unlike many systems out there, there are NO MONTHLY FEEs for accessing your cameras remotely, because it uses your existing internet connection! In addition to that, our technicians will even configure your remote access for you, so that you do not have to be an IT professional to get your cameras online. Simply call us, and our technicians will connect into your PC and configure your system and internet connection for remote access.
Since most bad things happen at night, each of our outdoor and many of our indoor home cameras have what is called Infrared night vision. With these cameras, you can see in the dark because the cameras illuminate the area with an invisible infrared light, using the IR LEDs that are built into the camera. The camera can see this invisible light, and can see almost as bright as day, even when it is completely dark. Using these cameras, you have the advantage if someone decides to mess with your home or family. You will be able to see them coming, before they even know. Infrared night vision will appear black and white as shown above, but during the daytime, these same cameras will appear in color, switching back and forth between color and b/w at the optimum light levels.
Home Surveillance is not just about catching a thief or vandal after the damage has been caused, but rather it is also about the prevention of crime in the first place. Thieves and vandals normally select easy targets for their illegal activities. If they see a house with cameras, the chance of capture for their deviant schemes increases, so they have the tendency to move on to an easier target. Let your home wear its security cameras proud, because preventing the damage in the first place will cost you a lot less in the long run!
Identification and Capture
Once something happens, the surveillance camera system is only as good as the evidence it provides. While there is never a guarantee of having the perfect shot, proper system design and application can provide you with the best chance of capture. Whether you use our CCTV traditional cameras or our High Definition MegaPixel IP Cameras, if the camera selected is used within its design, you have a great chance of providing police with facial recognition images that can help capture the perpetrator. With traditional cameras, it is recommended that you position them to cover the pinch-points in the entryway and exits, and use narrower focus. This provides the best image with these traditional cameras. With our newer High Definition MegaPixel IP cameras, you can cover wider areas but still deliver the recognition that you seek, because these cameras record at 7-25 times the resolution of traditional cameras. No matter which type of system you select, Platinum CCTV™ is with you every step of the way, from purchase to setup to capture.
Automatic Recycling Storage
One of the biggest downfalls of some security camera systems, is human interaction. That is why VCR based systems failed even before they were introduced. These systems involved requiring a human to change the tape every so often, in order for the system to continue recording. With our digital recording systems (both standalone DVR and PC based DVRs and NVRs), no human interaction is required. Just let the system run and record, the storage will automatically start overwriting the oldest video once it fills up.
