Need Outdoor Security Cameras?

outdoor security camerasMost people talk a big talk about what they’d do if someone broke into their home and threatened their loved ones and all. And, there are many people who would follow through with those threats.  However, not everyone would and, more importantly, what if they weren’t home when someone was breaking in.  Outdoor Security Cameras might be the better choice than big talk.

I recommend every home has either real or fake outdoor security cameras on them.  Of course, real cameras are more effective in that they can actually record the activities should someone actually break in.  But, they’re more expensive and require more time and supplies to install. The fake cameras are much less expensive and quick to install, but of course cannot record video.  But, regardless of your final choice, I like them because they tell a would be burglar or vandal that “THIS HOUSE IS PROTECTED”.  And, they can’t visually tell the difference between the real cameras and the fake security cameras.  So, hopefully, they’ll just decide to move on down the road and leave it alone.  That way, no one will have to back up that big talk.

Outdoor Security Cameras

I went to a friend’s house the other day and was amazed to see, once I walked in the front door, his homemade version of a home surveillance system.  I hadn’t noticed the outdoor security cameras before I entered, so I was kind of surprised to see the multiple monitors he had near his front door, allowing him to keep an eye on his property.

While Outdoor Security Cameras are a great idea, I kind of question, though, his thought process for not making the cameras more visible to someone nearing the property.  I mean, wouldn’t you want a would be burglar or vandal to know that you’re monitoring the security of your property, hopefully causing them to think twice and not even mess with your home?  I mean, that’d be my approach.  While I wouldn’t necessarily have the cameras mounted in places that my neighbors wouldn’t like, you can bet I’d have my security cameras visible enough to at least be seen.  I’d rather prevent a crime than to allow it to actually take place, but to get footage of it.

Outdoor Security Cameras

One way to help prevent having your home burglarized or vandalized is by installing outdoor security cameras.  While many people’s initial thought is that they don’t want to junk up the look of their home with the cameras.  But, once they do a little research, they usually change their mind.

outdoor security camerasOutdoor Security Cameras have gotten to be fairly small and many people find them somewhat attractive.  As long as they’re installed in a clean manner with any cabling safely tucked away from sight, most people end up liking the look.  While many people think the purpose of the cameras is to catch on video someone doing their property harm, this isn’t necessarily true.  The best outcome of installing outdoor surveillance or security cameras is to let burglars know that they shouldn’t even attempt to break in or vandalize the property.  By seeing the cameras, most would be burglars end up moving to another place.  Sad for those folks, but at least your home will be safe.

Got Outdoor Security Cameras?

Saturday, April 9, 2011
posted by SmartStun 2:01 PM

Kinda like, Got Milk?  I know, corny.  Sorry.  Anyway, if you’ve found your way to this article, then you’re obviously looking for some type of security or surveillance equipment to protect your home or office.  And, if you’re looking for real outdoor security cameras, I’d ask you to also consider adding a few DUMMY outdoor security cameras, too.

I say this because after you buy, say a 4 camera security surveillance system, you can add a couple more dummy or Fake Surveillance Cameras to your system for just a few bucks more.  And, if a criminal or burglar happens by your place, they’ll see all the camera heads up there, not knowing that only some are real, and they’ll be much less likely to cause you any trouble.  Camera Dummies are just a great way to stretch your security budget to get full protection for your place.  They only take a few minutes to install and they look just like the fully functioning cameras.

Cameras for Home Security

Saturday, April 2, 2011
posted by SmartStun 5:55 PM

You know, some people use a gun, or guns, I should say.  Some people use a dog.  Somepeople use Pepper Spray or a Stun Gun.  But, regardless of what they use for actual physical protection, everyone should consider some form of Cameras for Home Security, too.

I say this for a couple of reasons.  One, if something happens where someone breaks in and you end up shooting or stabbing or whatever, its great to have the video footage of cameras for home security to back you up as to what took place.  You’d hate to have to go up against a defendant with a great attorney, only to learn your case isn’t quite so “open and shut”.  Second, having cameras for home security are helpful in the event that you’re not home when a burglar breaks in and steals your belongings.  In that case, you’ll have the video footage necessary to identify who the criminal is and hopefully, catch and convict them.

Time for Home Surveillance Equipment

Friday, April 1, 2011

I know I don’t have to tell you how bad property crime has gotten recently.  Pick up almost any local newspaper and read the headlines.  You’re sure to see some pretty alarming stuff happening all around you all night long.  I mean, what do you think goes on outside your home at 2 a.m while you’re sleeping?  Probably more than you know.

So many people are checking into home surveillance equipment right now, just because of the rapidly increasing crime rate.  Some people are installing full blown home surveillance systems, complete with DVR’s.  Others are stretching their security budget dollars by installing fake security cameras.  Oh, they look just like the real thing, so a burlgar or vandal surely won’t be able to tell the difference.  But, they cost much much less than the real thing since they don’t have the real camera electronics on the inside.  Regardless of which route you choose to take, the time is now to protect your home as best you can.  There are many affordable, yet effective solutions available.

Security Cameras for the Outdoors

Most people are familiar with protecting their home or business with a camera surveillance system.  There are many systems available and some even have monthly monitoring by a centralized security agency.  But, most people think that in order to get a security system for outside their home or business, they have to go with one of these centralized agencies.  However, there are many surveillance systems that also utilize outdoor security cameras.

These surveillance systems are quite prevalent and you can find a good selection online.  You can even incorporate both outdoor security cameras and indoor security cameras into one system and monitor both the inside of your home or business, along with the outside of your home or business.  Technology has really advanced to the point where most homeowners can easily find a system that works for them and is simple enough that the homeowner can install them in a matter of hours.  The price of these systems is quite nice, too, usually well within the average homeowner’s budget.

Need a 16CH DVR?

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

A DVR 16CH, or 16-channel DVR, is a pretty cool product.  But, there is also a complete surveillance system with the model number DVR 16CH, so you have to be sure what you’re looking for.

A 16 Channel DVR is just that, its a digital video recorder that can handle 16 inputs, typically which will be cameras.  But, the DVR 16CH Home Surveillance System is a complete system.  It is packed with all the cameras, cabling, mounting brackets, and you guessed it, a 16 channel DVR.  Now, the complete system can be purchased with all hard wired cameras or a combination of some hard and some wireless.  So, be  sure to check out both types.  In fact, I always recommend that, before the homeowner starts shopping, they first do a mock layout of their home surveillance needs.  This way, once the shopping starts, they won’t be overwhelmed with all the choices, but instead can quickly and satisfactorily find what they need without getting bogged down.

Why Outdoor Security Cameras?

Well, let’s face it, crime continues to increase.  I read in today’s paper about a home invasion, here in small town America, that in the process of taking place.  The homeowner, at about 1AM heard noises in his backyard.  He got his handgun.  A few minutes later, the person making the noises in his backyard, was dead.

While I know there is a lot of bravado out there when it comes to people talking about how they’d respond to someone trying to break in to their home.  But, be real.  No normal person REALLY wants to kill another human.

In the case above, outdoor security cameras might just have prevented this homeowner from actually having to kill another human.  If the cameras had been up, then the criminal might just have gone on his merry way, leaving this house alone.  Of course, we’ll never know for sure, but its a safe argument to have.
