Whether you own a home or a business, protecting your property is a top priority. As the home security industry is constantly evolving with new technology advancements, you also need to continuously update your security protection devices to best protect your home or business from burglars, vandals and other criminals. Here are some of the latest technology breakthroughs to incorporate into your security protection plan:
Color Night Vision
Night vision technology has come a very long way in recent years. In the latest breakthrough, night-vision cameras can now record in color.
This may seem unnecessary to some people, but if you’ve ever been the victim of a home invasion or vandalism, you know that being able to identify the color of a getaway car or the clothing that the culprit was wearing can be critically important information for helping the police find and charge the criminal who targeted you.
Video security giant Lorex is an industry leader in color night vision, offering affordable products that can capture color night vision for a range of up to 130 feet as long as there is minimal ambient light in the area. Video recordings from the cameras with color night vision can look clear as day as long as there is some landscape lighting, street lights or other type of security lighting in proximity to the cameras.
Motion Detection Cameras with Two-way Audio
By installing motion detection cameras near the various entries to your house, it’s like you are always home. Simply set up your system so that you receive an alert whenever motion is detected near the door and then you can activate the two-way audio feature to talk to whomever is outside your door, whether it’s a delivery person, a salesperson, a neighbor or a burglar who is profiling the neighborhood to see who’s at home. The person outside of your door will likely assume you are inside, whether you’re sitting on your couch, at your desk at work or you’re lounging on the beach on vacation.
If you have pets, this is also a great type of camera to install inside your home so that you can check in on Fluffy or Fido. You can use this system to periodically look in on your pets throughout the day to say hello to your favorite furry friend and make sure they aren’t getting into anything they shouldn’t be.
Thermal Camera Security Systems
Burglars often hide behind large trees and thick bushes while watching a house or business as they carefully plan their attack. They are all the more likely to do this when you have cameras visibly displayed around your exterior perimeter, identifying where each one is so they can find the blind spots, all while safely hidden from the cameras’ sight.
But thermal camera systems eliminate this “safe zone” for criminals. Using the latest thermal imaging technology, thermal cameras capture video footage of objects based on the amount of heat that they radiate, instead of using light to record an image. The resulting recorded images glow brighter as they radiate more heat. More optimal security coverage, pair thermal cameras with color night vision HD cameras so you can get the full spectrum of imaging to help protect your home or business.
