What is a smart security camera?

Smart security cameras capture images, record footage, and monitor activity in and around your home or business in real-time. A smart security camera system can be integrated with new or existing smart home automation, and be customized for both wired or wireless usage. When paired with a smartphone, owners can configure their security system to preferred settings, and monitor activity over an app or the web. They provide 24/7 protection and peace of mind with access from anywhere.

Security cameras have been in use for over 50 years, however, with the introduction of smart technology, security cameras today have more robust and sophisticated features that can enhance security and the user experience. Face tag, GPS, and motion detection are a few key benefits of today’s smart security camera features.

Many homeowners and businesses install smart security cameras as a safety measure to alert them of unusual or suspicious activity and to monitor their families or employees. With more consumers shopping online, doorbell cameras, for instance, are very helpful for preventing package theft as homeowners can speak to anyone who approaches the area around their front door. These systems can also be programmed to dispatch authorities or law enforcement to a specific location in the event of an emergency. However, it’s important to note that smart security cameras are used for more than to prevent crime. Parents and pet owners often have smart security cameras installed throughout their homes to keep a watchful eye on pets, children, and even older family members while they’re away. They appreciate the ability to see and communicate with their pet or child directly via two-way audio through their security system. Businesses often set up cameras to monitor entrances/exits, cash registers, stock rooms, etc. to monitor the ins and outs of the business every day without having to be on site.
