Seeing Is Believing!
You hear a noise at night. “Who’s there?” you demand! Silence. Then the noise again. What do you do now?
Or, you discover that $40 is missing from your desk. Was it one of your kids? The sitter? An intruder? Or are you just getting forgetful?
With the right kind of recording equipment, you would know who it was, what happened, and what to do about it.
Home security cameras are not for everyone. There are lots of less costly actions (such as better locks, an alarm system and other precautions) you can take before considering these. See Seven Tips For Home Security. Getting video coverage that is timely and useful can be expensive and time-consuming. However, if you have a specific area of concern (such as a previous attempt at break-in, vandals in the back yard, or just seeing who is at the front door) cameras and recordings can give you indisputable proof and a reassuring feeling of knowing what is going on.

There are many things to be considered when choosing a CCTV system. Is there enough light in the area to be monitored? How wide-angle a lens do you need, or should you use a zoom lens with tilt and pan? How much of this information do you want to record? Is the system expandable as your future needs grow? Is a color or black & white system best for your needs? How much recording time do you need: 2 hours, 8 hours, 24 hours, 168 hours? Do you need a digital recorder with 31 days of recording? Today’s camera controls can be run from a bedside control box or your desktop computer; you can even use your notebook PC to check on the house while away on vacation! How powerful a system do you need?
What are the legal aspects with using the information you have recorded? What are the moral and ethical issues involved with home cameras and recordings? Can you use this information to prosecute an intruder? Northeast Security Solutions, Inc has the experience to help you answer these questions and help you select the system that is right for you.
