Top Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Home Surveillance System

Whether you’re leaving home for work or a week-long vacation, or even as you go to bed every night, wondering if your home is safe is likely on your mind. You want your property to remain well-protected, but more importantly, you want to ensure your family’s safety.

For these reasons, a robust and reliable smart home surveillance system is an ideal solution for your Fort Lauderdale, FL home. So, what are the top features of a smart surveillance system, and how can you best utilize them? We lay out the details below.

Gain Full Coverage of Your Property

Home surveillance cameras often get a bad rap when it comes to capturing high-quality video of an event. When playing back recorded video, the footage might be grainy and muddled, or you might not even be able to see the entire area where a significant event occurred.

That’s why a professional surveillance system is superior. Our team at BDigital Technologies will install high-performance surveillance cameras where you need them most throughout your property, so you can rest assured that you’ll never miss a significant event. Cameras that can zoom, pan, and tilt with ease – either automatically when triggered, or via your own control – ensure you’ll catch any suspicious activity on video.

Watch Video Footage in Real-Time

Did you know you can watch your surveillance footage in real-time? Live surveillance feed means you can pick up your tablet from any room or pull out your smartphone no matter where you are in the world and tap a button to view your property’s status and surroundings.

When you work with our team of experts at BDigital Technologies, you’ll get only the best surveillance camera brands that tailor to your unique needs. You’ll be able to control your cameras remotely, panning them around or zooming in to scope out your property. Watch live or recorded video with ease and whenever you desire from your preferred smart device.

Receive Instant Notifications

Never worry about learning of a home invasion or other significant event until it’s too late. Whether you’re away or in the house, you can immediately receive notifications to your smartphone the moment something occurs.

If your surveillance cameras detect suspicious activity such as a lingering person or trespasser, you’ll know right away via smartphone notification and can immediately call the authorities. Your surveillance system is always two steps ahead of you, which is especially important when you’re away at work or on vacation.

Integrate with Your Home Automation

Integrating your surveillance system with your home automation system lets you further strengthen your home security. By pairing your smart lighting control and motorized shades to work in tandem while you’re away, you can keep burglars from ever considering your home as a target.

An empty house can seem like a prime target, but a “Mockupancy” smart home scene will activate your lights, shades, and even AV to turn on and off at random intervals to simulate that someone is home. Shades will lift sporadically, and lights will turn on and off to mimic regular use. This illusion will fool any burglars into thinking your home is occupied and steer them away.

Lighting can also help you view surveillance footage better. When a motion sensor detects movement, your landscape lighting can flood an area – scaring any unwanted guests away, while also illuminating the scene so you can easily see the event through your surveillance cameras.
