There’s nothing more discomforting than the feeling of danger. This is especially true when you fear the danger is coming to or even coming from within your own home.
Of course, disaster can strike your home when you’re not there. Indeed, your home is statistically much more susceptible to burglary when no one is there. Not surprisingly, the majority of burglaries/intrusions happen when a property is vacant.
So what can you do to keep your home safe when you’re not around? There are a plethora of options. Home security experts suggest keeping certain lights on that will give the impression that someone is home. And while this might sound like a given, make sure that every potential entry point is locked up. Roughly 30% of home invasions are done through unlocked entries.
However, the most effective thing you can do to protect your home when you’re not around–indeed even if you *are* around–is to install a security system with cameras included.
Should it be just any kind of camera? Well, a mediocre security camera is certainly better than no camera at all, but there are a few cameras on the market that are clearly superior. Here are four of those cameras!
Nest Cam Indoor Security Camera
Nest is widely regarded by home security experts to be one of the most effective brands in the industry. With their most recent indoor security camera, Nest proves the point of those experts. The camera comes with a wide array of spectacular features. This camera sends alerts and messages straight to your mobile device when activity is detected. After all, what’s the point of a camera if you don’t know what it’s recording?
The camera itself has an all-glass lens with a 130° wide-angle viewing capacity. The camera is also designed to have crisp night vision so you can see what is happening at your home overnight. And for all its state-of-the-art features, the Nest Cam indoor security camera is easy to install. Overall, there’s no question that this particular camera does the Nest name proud!
Nest Cam Outdoor Security Camera
So now that we have covered the indoor portion of your home, what about the outside portion? Don’t you want to know someone is burglarizing you *before* they enter the property? Of course. Thankfully, Nest has a different, yet highly-capable camera for the exterior of your home – the Nest Cam Outdoor security camera. The outdoor camera shares many of the fantastic features of the indoor camera: the glass lens with a 130° view, the messaging functionality, and the simple installation process. But because this camera is meant for the exterior of the home, there are a few distinct features.
For example, the camera is weatherproof. Precipitation won’t cause any damage. It also features a microphone and built-in speaker, so that you can communicate with anyone you see outside of your home. In concert with the indoor camera, the Nest Cam outdoor security camera is extraordinary and affordable technology that will help to keep your home safe!
Arlo VMS3130 Indoor/Outdoor Night Vision Security System with One Wire-Free HD Camera
We’ve covered the cameras of nest, but surely there are other brands that manufacture effective security cameras, right? Of course, there are. One of those brands is Arlo, a leader in the home security industry. Arlo manufactures the VMS 3130, a camera system that simultaneously acts as an indoor *and* outdoor system.
Both the interior and exterior cameras are designed with exquisite HD night vision so that you can see everything clearly. When the camera detects activity while you are away from home, you get messages and alerts straight to your mobile device or email. And the most appealing feature to many VMS3130 owners? The camera is wireless. The 3130 can easily be installed thanks to its magnetic mounting capability. If you want to keep your home safe, and you want to do it without technological headaches, it is hard to do much better than the Arlo VMS 3130!
Canary All-in-One Home Security Device
While it may be one of the more important components, a camera is just one component of a home security system. As cutting edge as a specific camera may be, in the end, it can’t do *everything* for you. Or can it? The Canary All-in-One Home Security Device is challenging that perception. Just the design itself makes the Canary a unique device, but the features all help to set itself apart.
This device features a 1080p HD camera with crisp night vision and a 147° angle lens. Like the aforementioned cameras, it also sends notifications to your mobile device upon the detection of unusual activity. But unlike the other cameras, the All-in-One also monitors home temperature, humidity, and air quality. It’s also designed to help you contact authorities quickly when necessary. The Canary All-in-One is most certainly more than your average security camera!
