There are many reasons why DIY surveillance equipment is worthwhile for property owners…
The moment my partner and I were planning our dream home, the matter for security was major concern. We opted for a quiet community to be able to minimize the likelihood of being easily targeted by criminals. Still times are changing and any form of defense isn’t a waste of cash.
We built a two-story home and provided enough space for a yard as well as garden since we love the outdoors. Nate consulted a security professional he met on a business travel. For a house just like ours, the specialist stated a basic DIY home surveillance camera system would be enough.
He recommended a four to six camera set up, with a DVR system which came with either wired or wireless equipment. We learned a DVR is the one piece of a monitoring equipment which makes it relatively simple to utilize both whenever recording as well as reviewing.
Nate was very interested in a system which would allow both of us to keep track of the house even though we were out, through the internet. At the same time, he liked high-performance indoor and outdoor cameras that could shoot in full color and then very easily switch to black and white as soon as light conditions were poor.
We absolutely wanted all-weather security cameras outdoors which would cover the yard and our front door. There were security cameras systems that had built-in, high-infrared illuminators to enable capturing high-definition shots in spite of low-light visibility.
At that moment we decided on installing a 4 channel- wired professional security system, the community was abuzz with news of a break-in, first, at a convenience store, and then inside a house whose owners were away.
My husband and I feel greatly relieved that we’ll not be so hopeless in case something similar to this happened to us. Hopefully, the burglar will move on as soon as he views our outdoor security cameras.
DIY home surveillance equipment is much more affordable when purchased online. But it’s also a good idea to make sure your the seller is in good standing with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
