What are the Benefits of Outdoor Security Cameras?

While their main function is to deter criminals and keep a watchful eye on your property, they also offer several other benefits. They let you keep an eye on your children when they’re playing in the yard, ensuring their safety even when you’re working in the home office or preparing a meal. 

If your much-loved pets romp around in the backyard when you’re away, you can also watch them and make sure they haven’t found an escape route or decided to dig up your petunias. Another benefit our clients appreciate is the cameras’ ability to avert car theft. If the unthinkable does occur, you have recorded video, which can help law enforcement track down the criminals and use the recording as evidence. 

Is it Better to Have an Indoor or Outdoor Security Camera?

While many of our clients choose both, an outdoor security camera is a preventative measure. It alerts you and authorities if someone is attempting to break in and can stop an intruder before they gain access.

Do Outdoor Cameras Always Record?

Some cameras offer continuous video recording, allowing you to check on your home and loved ones anytime. Others are motion-activated, recording when motion is detected and sending you an alert.

Do Outdoor Cameras Need WiFi?

While there are cameras that record footage locally, allowing you to view it at your discretion, you need an internet connection to gain some of the best features. With internet access, you can receive notifications when movement is detected and view live video footage on your mobile device from anywhere in the world.

We also recommend direct wired connections that enhance security and allow for reliable connectivity. 

Do Outdoor Cameras Have Audio?

Many of today’s security cameras have audio, night vision, and crystal-clear full-HD video. These features enable you to speak to whoever’s on camera and see in precise detail no matter the time. 

For instance, if someone comes to the front door, you can address them directly, even if you’re a few miles away at work or hundreds of miles away on a business trip. When integrated with smart door locks and lighting, you can unlock the door for a friend or household staff and turn on the entryway lights.

Today’s home security cameras have evolved in immeasurable ways. If you’d like to learn about their many features and our recommendations or to schedule a complimentary consultation, contact Atlantic Security today.
