For the most basic of applications including a condominium, town-home, single family other, placing at least one camera in the central portion of the home and/or at the location of main entry points provides a wealth of information to assist you in understanding what is occurring in real-time as well as to have an archived capture of all activities. The same information can be sent to our central station upon alarm activity to allow our operators to verify what is occurring as we are notifying you, the homeowner, as well as the authorized emergency response team associated with your geographic area. The ability to verify events is an amazing benefit with regard to the best possible emergency team response. For larger estate properties or special applications, several video cameras can be incorporated to allow you the ability, both while away and at home, to see firsthand what is occurring around the property. For horse / farm applications and properties with several out buildings with associated events, the availability of onsite, remote and live video and recorded or archived video is a tremendous benefit. And for those in higher security requirements, the use of thermal cameras and other more sophisticated equipment can assure the knowledge, detection and presence of all events which can be associated on fixed or virtual barrier lines to capture all activity in real-time.
Other convenient uses of video and still image transmission can be associated with basic events. A camera located at the front door or main entry can be set to both capture and send a video file of any activity in that area. This could be for when members of the family arrive home, a delivery is left on the front porch, as well as capturing of unwanted and suspicious activity. We frequently incorporate a video camera associated with property vehicle entry gates that can be associated with both local and remote answerable intercom call. Whereas when a visitor comes to the gate and pushes the button, a monitor in your home or on your smart phone can immediately bring up the image and allow for a live conversation to occur to authorize entry and/or simply acknowledge the presence of the visitor. The applications of video are virtually unlimited. Please see the following examples along with some of our highlighted manufacturer and product uses.
