Introduction to Alarm.com’s Home Surveillance Features: What to Know
Alarm.com’s Powerful Video Monitoring Features Bring You Peace of Mind
Surveillance cameras are a powerful tool for any security-conscious homeowner. Not only can they help you keep an eye on what’s happening outside of your property, but they also can allow you to keep track of what’s going on inside your house while you’re away from home, as well.
Equally important when selecting the right surveillance cameras for your home is making sure that you also are selecting the right platform to control, view and store your camera footage. And one of the most powerful security tools available to you is a live video monitoring service from Alarm.com. Today, we’ll look at Alarm.com’s home surveillance features and show you all that they can do to keep you and your loved ones safe at your house in the Franklin, Tennessee area.
Alarm.com’s video surveillance systems use a dedicated cellular connection, giving you 24/7 access to the live video feed, even if your power goes out or your broadband Internet service is disrupted. You can see what the camera sees in high-definition using your phone, tablet or other device directly through the Alarm.com application, and the camera’s low-light capabilities even give you the power to see in the dark. If your cameras have pan, tilt and zoom capabilities as well, you can control those features through the Alarm.com app, as well.
What’s more, you can install a Wi-Fi enabled doorbell camera lets you see and talk to anyone at your door. Once you’ve verified their identity, you can then unlock your door remotely to let them inside through smart locks connected to the Alarm.com system. This makes an Alarm.com home surveillance system very handy for package deliveries or other situations where you want to give someone brief access to your home before locking the door behind them. You control access to your home at all times.
HOME SURVEILLANCE ALERTS AND ANALYTICS
It’s handy to be able to see what your home surveillance system sees whenever you want, but you also want to know your security system is working even when you’re busy with the rest of your life. With a video monitoring system from Alarm.com, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing you have 24/7 protection.
Alarm.com’s video analytics tools can distinguish people from animals and vehicles, and the system will analyze your daily routines to determine if someone or something that doesn’t belong is near your property. This always removes the hassle of needing to keep an eye on your system.
If your surveillance system detects a disturbance, it will automatically send a video alert to your phone, letting you know what happened along with a clip of the relevant incident. These alerts will go out within seconds of an incident occurring; giving you plenty of time to take any necessary following action.
NO WORRYING ABOUT STORAGE
One of the most important features to look at with any home surveillance camera system is its storage system. After all, if you can’t go back and look at the footage after the fact, you won’t know what happened when you weren’t looking at the video feed.
Alarm.com has made the storage problem as painless as possible. For local storage, the camera uploads everything to a Stream Video Recorder. The SVR has been optimized to use as little of your bandwidth as possible, ensuring your monitoring system won’t be a drain on your Internet connection.
For extra reassurance, the cameras also automatically upload the recorded clips to an online cloud storage system. This ensures that no matter what happens, even if the camera itself is destroyed, you’ll have a record of what the camera saw.
