From VCR-based analog CCTV (closed-circuit television) systems to network camera-based video systems, the concept of video surveillance has transformed dramatically since its inception. These systems, however, were designed to fit commercial needs, not necessarily residential. Until recently, consumers and families had to rely on home security companies to feel better protected. Now you can easily install them in your own home. Here are a look at three security systems and cameras which can help transform your house into a safer, more secure smart home.
Canary all-in-one home security system Canary is a complete home security system packed into a single device that can be set up in minutes. Place it anywhere in the central area of your home, plug it in, connect it to your existing Internet and your own security system is up and running without the use of a single tool. Canary will send intelligent HD audio/video notifications directly to your smartphone should it detect something out of the ordinary in or around your home. It even boasts Homehealth TechnologyTM, which monitors the temperature, air quality and humidity in your home, offering more than just protection against intruders.
Protecting your home and valuables doesn’t have to include bulky hardware, messy wires and an entire room designated for monitoring anymore. Canary’s all-in-one system encompasses the whole package, but you can scale down your security and still feel equally protected. Let’s take a look at three of the best options for those of you looking for cameras you can pair with your smart device.
