Choosing A Home Surveillance System
It is surprisingly fun to have camera monitoring on your home. You get to see your kids being adorable, your pets behaving while you’re away and you know when people come and go. When using cameras for the purpose of security, it is important to make sure that they will capture the details to make a difference. Cameras that don’t have the quality to identify a suspect of burglary, will do you no good when you really need them. We want to help you get the right camera system, the first time around.
This commonly used abbreviation stands for Closed Circuit Television. Referring to the system that allows the owner to both monitor as well as record activity on his or her property.

Wired camera systems give the best picture quality and have the greatest ability to see distances far away, in low light or at night.

Even with wired technology, you still have the ability to view video in real time with a WiFi connection and TruVision app.
