We’ve shared in a separate article how to choose a security camera for your home.
But why should you have security cameras at home?
Home security cameras can let you do amazing things both inside and outside of your home.
In addition to being able to protect your home from burglars, security cameras are good for knowing lots of information about your own home.
You can use your security cameras in so many ways, including:
- watching what your pets are doing
- keeping an eye on your child(ren)
- knowing if packages have been delivered
- confirming someone who was supposed to do something outside (landscaping/construction/pool cleaning/etc.) actually showed up
- and more
Unless you’re constantly home, it’s probably a good idea to have some way to know what’s going on outside of your home.
This is especially true if you are going on vacation, and need a way to be able to look at your home remotely.
Should my home security cameras connect to the Internet
This is a question we get from time to time.
It depends on your situation, but almost always, our answer is going to be yes.
Home security cameras that connect to the internet in your home, and then let you control them from anywhere in the world, are kind of a standard installation as part of home security.
And as a result, we come to think of “home security” as missing something, unless it includes cameras.
PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) Cameras now offer some truly remarkable features (as you can see from the image below) in terms of quality and function.
And we would recommend that if any company offers you a home security system that doesn’t at least consider cameras as part of the package, you might want to look at another company to provide your home security system.
