Indoor and Outdoor Security Camera Installation Service for Homes and Businesses in Jacksonville, FL

Outdoor security camera system

These days, people are using security cameras for more than just catching thieves and vandals. Some want to check on deliveries or see who came to the door while they were away. Others want indoor cameras to check on family or four-legged friends. More and more homeowners are choosing video surveillance for the peace of mind it brings. On the business side, commercial security cameras protect assets and provide employee safety.

Before you buy a surveillance camera, it’s important to determine what’s important for you. Here are some options for security camera installation services.

Indoor and Outdoor Surveillance Cameras

The biggest difference between indoor and outdoor cameras is their ability to endure the weather. No one wants their new camera to quit working after one big storm.

Installing an indoor camera is usually as easy as finding the right spot, plugging it in, turning it on, and syncing it with your mobile device or PC. While some may require drilling, most indoor cameras won’t require anything more than a few simple tools. (Keep in mind that installing your indoor camera on a high corner or shelf will offer a better field of vision for the entire room.) Guarantee the best view for your home security camera with professional installation.

Outdoor cameras are typically installed above your garage door, on the front porch, or in the back of a building. For a garage camera, place your camera to make sure you have a large field of view. For a porch camera, make sure your camera is mainly facing the walkway to capture all the action possible and get the most of any motion sensors.

Wired or Wireless Security Cameras?

Wired cameras limit your placement options but have a more reliable and secure connection. Because they involve more than just syncing to Wi-Fi, hiring a professional security camera installation company will deliver the best results.

Wireless cameras have the freedom to be placed anywhere within range of your Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or other wireless connections. Want quality without the cabling? IP cameras are a high-quality wireless security camera option.

Local or Cloud Storage?

Today, most security cameras offer cloud storage to prevent thieves from running away with the camera (and the evidence), but some still prefer local storage for privacy and convenience.

Local storage options vary by camera, but may include options like microSD cards, hard drives, Digital Video Recorders (DVRs), or Network Video Recorders (NVRs). If you select local storage, place your cameras out of harm’s way, but with easy access for when you need it.

With cloud storage, yyou can access footage through your phone or PC apps, regardless of the camera’s condition. For business security, cloud storage is preferred when multiple people need remote viewing access to the surveillance system.
