Security cameras are a popular option for many homes and businesses. With storage options of 1, 2, or 4 TB (or more), cameras can record video and store it on site via a digital video recorder (DVR) or network video recorder (NVR) or in the cloud. Giving you the ability to live-stream video remotely from your smartphone or computer, cameras are an affordable feature that can be part of any security system.
Also known as closed circuit TV, video recording from cameras can occur both on-site and off-site. On-site recording can go to a DVR or NVR. While both DVRs and NVRs can store multiple days’ worth of video that can be retrieved later, an NVR is IP-based and works on a computer network. NVRs also tend to be high-definition. Our cameras can also record constantly and increase the frame rate when there is motion activity.
Uploading video to the cloud has a low upfront cost with a monthly fee. Customers can also get an email when 50%, 90%, and 100% of available recording space is used. With cloud-based services, you don’t have to worry about someone stealing your DVR or NVR, so you’ll always have access to your video. Our partnership with Alarm.com gives our customers the best technology solutions for their smart home. Alarm.com’s mobile app gives our customers the ability to monitor their alarm system and view a live video feed.
