Essential features to consider when choosing security cameras

When researching surveillance cameras a lot of the camera functionality can seem like a confusing minefield of industry jargon and tech-speak. It's hard to know which features are important and which are a useless gimmick to increase sales. Getting right down to basics is the only way to compare apples with apples, to make sure you get the right camera for your security requirements.
 

What makes a good home alarm system?

With so many home alarm system options available it can be difficult to decipher which are the good ones and which are not worth the effort. Our team have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly and have put together some tips to ensure the system you chose and install in your home will protect your family and your property when it’s needed the most.
 

Where should home security cameras be positioned?

Investing in the very best security cameras on the market is a waste if you fail to place them in the best position to completely monitor all aspects of your property. Incorrect positioning could miss vulnerable areas of your property and you may not be able to use the security footage to identify and catch thieves or trespassers. 

Pros and cons of using fake security cameras

There is a huge range of dummy security cameras on the market. For a couple of dollars (or a little bit more), you can purchase a very realistic fake camera which can be easily positioned around your home or business to deter thieves, vandals or intruders. 

Points to consider when planning a business CCTV camera system

Planning the design of your businesses CCTV camera system is almost as crucial as the images it may capture. There's no one-size-fits-all solution for the security surveillance of your business. Each corner, light, cash register, desk, tree, and door are unique to your property which means you need a custom-designed camera system to ensure you've got every angle covered. 

Is alarm monitoring worth it?

We get asked this question a lot when we're installing new security systems. Is alarm monitoring worth it? I'm getting a great system why do I need pay for monitoring as well? Can't my neighbour just come round and check the house if we're not home when the alarm goes off? These are all very logical questions to ask when you're considering if adding an alarm monitoring service to your home security system is really necessary. 

What happens if the security alarm goes off when you're out?

Home security alarms are loud and annoying, but that's the idea. The alarm in your home security system is designed to be a deterrent to intruders, alert occupants, and to draw attention to your home, from neighbours, passers-by, or authorities. Most systems will sound for about 5 to 10 minutes before stopping and automatically re-arming. If a sensor is triggered again the alarm siren will sound for another period, and so on.
