Adding Security Cameras to Your Home

As a homeowner, you want to protect your investment and keep your property and your family safe. While we’re sure you’ve taken measures such as good locks on your doors and even adding an alarm system to your home, there are a few other measures you can take to ensure proper safety. A great thing you can do is add security cameras to your home so you can always see what’s going on.

Types of Security Cameras


If you don’t have a lot of storage space on your computer or other devices that will be saving your video recordings, motion sensor cameras are perfect. They only record when something is moving in their frame, so you won’t have endless hours of a still image of your lawn taking up space on your drive.


As the name implies, these cameras are meant to record in dimly lit and dark areas. They are often found outside, so you can spot any intruders that may sneak up on your house in the middle of the night.

Tilt Cameras

While some cameras stay fixed on a certain scene, tilt cameras have the ability to change direction, zoom, and focus on other elements. This can either be done remotely or by hand from your phone, depending on the camera model you choose.

Benefits of Security Cameras


First and foremost, security cameras help keep your home safe. Many intruders are wary of targeting a home that has security cameras that could catch them in the act.

Proving a Crime

If your home is broken into, security footage from your cameras can help prove someone is the perpetrator in court. Rather than have to rely on circumstantial evidence, you can have black and white footage that clearly shows the guilty party.
