The benefits of security cameras are indisputable; not just for surveillance, but also for crime control. Taking the lead from New York and Chicago, other cities like Whittier in California are also implementing greater surveillance in public spaces in the city.
Similarly, homeowners are following suit and employing the use of security camera installations in their private lives. Due to technological advancements, myths surrounding the difficulty of using security cameras have also been debunked.
In fact, you can now monitor your home using your smartphone. Handy, isn’t it? It makes things ten times easier and more accessible for users.
How does it work?
All you have to do is download the security camera app to your smartphone, and once the security cameras are installed, you can view the camera feeds live on your phone. The best part? No one other than you can know that the camera is live streaming or that it’s even there!
Safe from Hackers
The camera footage is password protected, and unless you share the information with someone else, no one other than you can see what’s going on inside (and outside) your home.
When you link your security camera to your phone, only you know what’s happening in the cameras. This will keep you updated when you’re on the go or even away from your home for long periods of time and need to check in from time to time.
Alerts can also be sent to your phone so you don’t have to worry about constantly updating yourself.
Information at your fingertips
You don’t have to stress out about who can access the information or feel insecure about leaving your valuables unattended. If you have long hours at work and have pets at home, you can keep an eye on them and record their activities throughout the day so you don’t have to miss them too much at work.
Or if it’s impossible for you to take time off work to oversee renovations being done at home or you want to look after a sick family member, this makes things easier for you.
Home security through your smartphone is so advanced that it can also monitor the air-conditioning and heating in your home as well. You can turn extra lights on and off should you need to. Managing the energy consumption this way makes you a responsible citizen doing your part for the environment and ensures minimal waste providing cost effective solution.
