Happy Friday! Security is at the top of everyone’s minds these days – unfortunately. And cameras seem to be the first solution people think of. Cameras on an alarm system are good & affordable but you need to understand how they work. They detect motion, may take a snapshot, then record clips of video rather than actual videos. So there are “missing” pieces in the footage you review. This may suffice for many people’s needs. True surveillance camera solutions can record 24×7, on a schedule, or as motion is detected. Surveillance solutions record as long as motion is detected and are continuous as opposed to the previous clip explanation. This is important to remember depending on what you are wanting to accomplish with your camera solution. ISS also now has camera solutions for 1, 2, 3 etc. cameras that do not require a local recorder but will record to the cloud. There are some limitations but this may be an feasible and affordable solution for your needs as well.
