What Are Some Top Features to Look for in a Security Camera?

Night Vision

A security camera should include night vision technology to properly capture movement and objects – especially when it’s dark since intruders will try to go undetected under cover of night.

Video Quality

A camera should capture at 1080p HD or better to provide enough detail of what’s going on. Camera footage recorded at lower than 1080 pixels will likely result in grainy or blurry footage.

Field of View

For a camera to monitor a room or area effectively, a wide-angle is key. But if it’s too wide, the image may be too small or distorted. The ideal camera angle view should range between 100 and 180 degrees.

Reap the Benefits of Buying a Security Camera

A security camera offers many benefits. You can monitor what goes on indoors and outdoors – even when you’re not home by accessing the video feed via a computer or the smartphone app. And security cameras are an excellent deterrent – thieves don’t want to be caught on video.

Monitor Your Deliveries

If you receive Amazon packages frequently, a Brinks Home Outdoor Camera can help you track when they were received. If package theft happens in your area, a security camera can identify a thief.

Get Alerts If Movement Has Been Detected

When a security camera detects motion, it triggers the hub. You can receive notifications if your camera detects motion so you can see what the culprit is.

Check In On a Live Feed

If you’re worried you forgot to turn off the lights or you want to know if your kids are home after school, you can check your camera’s live stream to see what’s going on.
