Surveillance Security Systems

Worried that an intruder might find his way to your treasured possessions? Although you can insure almost anything and everything today, what about beautiful memories like photos or gifts from loved ones? Can you put a price on that? Losing a memory or a family heirloom could be both tragic and frustrating. However, with the right steps, it could be avoided.

So the question is, can your security system keep an eye on your home when you are not around? If you hesitated in answering that question, then you should rethink your strategy.

Here is a statistic: In 2012 Property Room (Online Police Auction Service) reported that jewelry was the third most stolen item in the US.

Surveillance systems, as the name suggests, are designed to keep an eye and cover blind spots in your house or workplace. These systems primarily consist of security cameras that generally include the following components:

  • Cameras – the surveillance unit
  • Cables– wires to connect cameras with monitors and power adapters
  • Power Distribution Block or Power Adapter–power supply unit
  • Monitors– screens for surveillance
  • Video recorder (DVR)–hard drive for storage

The cameras perform different functions depending on the type of surveillance system being used. Some provide real-time feed, some record and store all the footage while others provide a combination of both.
