An IP Camera is a fantastically versatile piece of technology and allows you to keep an eye on whatever is important to you from wherever you are – be it the next room, at work or even abroad. This great bit of kit offers a huge number of potential applications, here are just some of them.
Installing a camera could be the best step you can take in ensuring home or business security and complete peace of mind. With gadget and technology ownership on the rise homes are increasingly becoming an attractive target for would-be burglars. While an alarm system, if you chose to install one, may alert you, your neighbours or the police to the presence of an unwelcome visitor, there is no capacity for capturing the trespasser in the act.
With an IP camera not only does the motion detection feature send an instant email notification that something is amiss, but the captured footage can also provide the authorities with the image required to help detect and ultimately detain an intruder.
Home security, however, is not the only application for an IP Camera. Every parent knows how tiring it can be caring for a baby or a small child – with so much to do, you can often feel as though you need eyes in the back of your head. With an IP Camera another set of eyes is only a step away. Simply set up a camera in your baby’s nursery or child’s play room and, day or night, you can effortlessly ensure that they are safe and well without having to disturb them.
Plus with the remote access functionality IP Cameras afford, even the parent who is not at home with the infant can log in from wherever they are to give them added peace of mind.
The remote access feature also means that you can keep an eye on a pet while away from home. Dogs are said to be man’s best friend and, while leaving your companion home alone may or may not be a regular occurrence, the reassurance that your pet is safe and well can often be invaluable.
The pan and tilt feature of the Indoor IP Camera also means that, even if you pet roams around the room, a quick, remote adjustment of a well placed camera will bring your animal into view.
The owners of holiday homes know all too well the anxiety which can be caused by being away from a property for a prolonged period of time. In much the same way as a home or business the threat of intruders is a key area of concern, but other household emergencies also take on a new dimension.
Leaking pipes, the after effects of a storm or power outage or even an unlocked door or open window are all matters which can be quickly addressed in the home with minimal inconvenience or damage. But if you are away for the property for a prolonged period of time such problems may go unresolved. Installing an IP Camera, however, provides the opportunity to spot a problem and contact a friend or neighbour on the scene who can prevent misfortune becoming disaster.
The uses for an IP camera also extend beyond home security and reassurance. Nature lovers too can utilise the potential of an IP surveillance system. Installing a camera such as the Outdoor IP Camera overlooking a garden, nature area or other outdoor space can provide an excellent view of animals interacting in their natural surroundings without the intrusion a human presence can cause. The potential for capturing unspoilt, natural images is truly exciting.
