Boost Your Home Security With an Outdoor Wireless Security Camera
Is your home secure from intruders? Would you be alerted if there were suspicious activities outside the front door? If you can’t answer these questions with a resounding yes, then you need to boost your home security with an indoor and an outdoor wireless security camera.
Extend Video Surveillance Outdoors
Okay, you’ve got yourself covered indoors and you’re smug about this. But you’re forgetting that home security is not just monitoring the nanny and the kids. You have to know if there are any unusual goings-on out there; if you are staying in an apartment, you need to know who is knocking on the door and what he has behind his back – a pizza carton or a gun? An outdoor wireless security camera can give you the right answer.
Through the door’s peep hole, you can see the person’s distorted face but you can’t guess what he is toting. An outdoor wireless security camera positioned across the door and another on the outer door at eye-level can solve the problem for you. Still if he is a stranger, you don’t open the door. You communicate to him through the camera’s two-way audio/speakers and that’s that. You’re safe behind that door.
Here’s an additional bonanza. If you are getting home and content insurance, you’re likely to get bigger discounts if you have put up an outdoor wireless security camera and your home is rigged with indoor surveillance cameras. So on top of your home security, you get a better deal from the insurance company.
So Many Brands, It’s Confusing!
There is a host of wireless security camera brands. Before you get lost in the maze, make a checklist of what you need from your outdoor wireless security camera. Here are some factors to consider before you lug home a brand new outdoor security camera:
— Camera range. Do you need a security camera that has an extensive range or no?
— Is your part of the neighborhood well-illuminated at night with street lamps?
— Is there a power source nearby?
— Is the weather in your area warmer or colder?
— Do you want a date/time/sequence recording?
— Do you want the convenience of a battery strength indicator?
— Do you prefer an easy delete of all recordings?
— Do you want a camera that still works well in total darkness?
— Do you want a solar-powered outdoor security camera?
— Do you want a motion detection feature to save on unnecessary recordings?
These are a lot of questions to ask yourself but these are valuable when you are seeking an expert’s help to guide you in your choice of outdoor wireless security camera. Brand comparison can come later on when you have identified the features you need with your outdoor security camera, and oh, your budget will also have a lot of say on the matter of camera brands.
