Video Cameras for My Home and Business

I want an affordable video camera system in my home and business but I do not want some monitoring company looking into my home. What can I do?

Greetings and welcome to the information age:

Technology is constantly working to deliver advanced digital concepts to the end user. Technology seeks to take something that is very expensive and make it very affordable so that it can be utilized and enjoyed by the typical consumer. 

Well it has happened again. The onset of the video camera on every street corner in the city, and in most major institutions has enabled the end user to utilize a video camera system in his or her home or small business and in many other scenarios. Let’s have a quick look shall we.

Here is a woman in her office in the city. She knows that her 15 year old daughter and 12 year old son get off the bus at 3:00. She grabs her smartphone, pulls up a browser and in real time views the camera in the front entryway of her home. She sees the kids walk in on schedule.  

Here is a man at work in construction. His father is having difficulty getting around these days and it takes him a while to get to the phone. So for peace of mind the family agreed to have a set of cameras installed in the home. This way the son could check on his father periodically to make sure hewas ok. The father and son agreed that they didn’t want some outside monitoring company looking through at the cameras inside the home so they decided to monitor it themselves. So with the touch of a button on his smartphone this hard-working young man can check on his dad from anywhere in the world at any time of day or night without the intrusion of a monitoring company watching the inside of the home.

Here is a professional young couple who spend many hours in the city working.  They have a home in the suburbs but they are often in the city or traveling on business while many people frequent their property, such as the maid, the dog walkers, contractors, landscapers, etc. With a smartphone that runs Android, Apple, Windows, or Blackberry they can pull up real time video of the goings on at their home or on their property. 

Another family owns a vacation home in the country. The last time they were up at the property they noticed quad tracks and footprints in the rear of their home. They installed video cameras with motion sensor and recording technology. One Friday night, the property owner received an e-mail alert from the motion sensor and pulled up real time video of a couple of kids hanging out in the back of his property.  He phoned the local police who were able to respond and chase the kids off of his land with instructions to stay away from private property.    

Here is a typical woman with 10,001 things on her mind. She’s preparing dinner, she has a presentation in the morning, her husband is stll at work and the kids are in the pool. They are certainly old enough to swim in the pool by themselves but she needs a little peace of mind.  She installed a simple set of two wireless cameras around the swimming pool so that she could view the goings on at the pool with her 13’ portable color monitor that she could place on her countertop. 

On the business side of things our affordable camera systems can be used for many things from monitoring your bookkeeper's computer screen, your company trucks, a car dealer’s lot, the cash register, the high value inventory, the entrances and exits to warehouses, office spaces etc. The uses are unlimited and the advantages gained through their use are really priceless.

Our camera systems can be used to monitor horse stables or any other situation in which animals or livestock are maintained such as kennels, foaling or nursing animals or even in a transporter vehicle or trailer where the animals are being hauled over long distances. 

Anything is possible and we can customize our video camera systems to specifically suit your individual needs. The use of the technology is really endless and really affordable.
