What is a Residential Video Surveillance System?

As the name suggests, residential video surveillance systems are security systems that use cameras in and around a home to monitor activity. The footage from these cameras can be used to identify intruders, track suspicious activity, and provide evidence in the event of a crime among other uses. These systems are becoming increasingly popular as homeowners look for ways to improve their security. Video surveillance is an essential component of any residential security system. Video surveillance cameras come in many different forms and have evolved over the years. At JR Security we believe that using the latest and greatest security technology is important. That is why we utilize a combination of IP cameras and NVR’s (Network Video Recorders) for our security systems.

Why Your Home Needs IP Video Surveillance

Deter Burglars – By installing security cameras, you can help to deter burglars and keep your home and family safe. Not only will IP cameras provide you with valuable evidence in the case of a burglary but just having cameras will reduce the likelihood of a burglar targeting your residence.

Monitor Home Activity – Security cameras can also be used to monitor activity around your home, such as who is coming and going and can allow you to keep check on children while you are. Have a pet? Security cameras are also a great way to monitor your pet while you are away from home.

Peace of Mind – Knowing that your home is protected by a security system can give you peace of mind when you are away or sleeping, and can help you to relax and enjoy your time both away and at home.

Reduce Insurance Costs – Many insurance companies offer discounts for homes with security systems, so installing IP cameras could save you money on your premiums.

Types of IP Cameras

Understanding the different types of Residential IP systems is important for choosing one that will work best for your home.

Dome IP Cameras

Most commonly used for indoor security applications. The dome-shaped housing gives them their name. Typical retail applications include cameras that are designed to be discreet but visible. Because of the “dome” form, it’s difficult to identify which way these cameras are facing, making them excellent for deterring thieves. Learn more about the pros and cons of dome style cameras.

Bullet IP Camera

Frequently deployed in applications that demand long distance viewing due to their long, cylindrical, and tapered design. The camera is usually not meant to pan, tilt, or zoom, but rather to collect photo/video from a fixed specific area. Learn about the use cases of bullet style cameras.

Turret Style IP Cameras

Similar in many ways to the dome camera, the turret style camera is commonly used indoors and outdoors. It mounts from the top, usually to the ceiling and is capable of having a wide field of view. The turret Camera is a favourite at JR Security as it shares many of the advantages of the dome style without some of the drawbacks involved in the dome design. Learn when you should choose turret style cameras.

Infrared IP Camera

These night-vision IP cameras have the ability to see images in pitch black conditions using IR lights and are ideal in outside conditions where lighting is poor to zero. We also offer a full color night vision option with the ability to display great detail in dark environments. Learn about JR Security’s night vision camera offerings.
