3 Reasons to Add Surveillance Cameras to Your Home
A Home Surveillance System Adds Security and Convenience to Your Property
A decade ago, it was common for home security and home automation to be treated as completely separate systems. If you wanted surveillance cameras, you went to a home security professional, and if you wanted automated control of lights, window treatments, climate, etc., you went to a home integration company. Now, advances in technology allow you to control everything at once under the same system. That means you don’t have to get a dedicated security solution in order to make your home safer.
Merging automation and home surveillance systems offers a lot of benefits for Vancouver, WA area homeowners. Here are a few of our favorites:
1. You Don’t Have to Settle for Cookie-Cutter Security
Often, security systems are designed as standard solutions without any real customization. But when you work with our team, you get the same level of personalization on your security system that you had with your smart home. You also get to choose the specific areas you want monitored and how you want your home to respond in the event of a security breach. Your automated lighting control system, for example, can be set up to turn on all of the lights if motion is detected at night, giving ample brightness for your surveillance camera footage.
2. You Can Stay Aware of What’s Going on in Your Home
Did you leave the oven on? Did you remember to close the garage door? Is your child home from school? Surveillance cameras aren’t just for security—they also allow you to stay in the loop even when you’re halfway around the world! This awareness is wonderful for peace of mind while you’re on vacation or at work. You’ll never have to deal with that nagging doubt in the back of your mind. Instead, just pull up your phone, check the footage, and go on with your day.

3. You Can Control Your Home from Anywhere
As great as it is to know if there’s an issue with your home, that doesn’t do you much good if you can’t drop everything to go deal with the problem. That’s where tying in automation really comes in handy. You can access the real-time surveillance footage right from your smartphone, and then at the same time, command your automation system to fix the issue. So if you accidentally left the garage door open, all you have to do is tap the “Close” button on your phone, and the garage door will do so automatically!
