Need Some Extra Security?

Everybody wants to keep their home and family safe, especially during the holidays when a break-in threat is at its highest. That is why surveillance systems are so popular. People recognize the threat out there and are doing their best in order to make sure they do not become another victim. The most efficient means of protecting your home and family is a comprehensive surveillance system.

A comprehensive surveillance system has two main purposes, to keep intruders out or to scare them off. But in the unfortunate event that neither of those happens, a comprehensive surveillance system can at least offer visual recordings of what happened and who did it.

Properties equipped with surveillance systems are usually passed up by criminals. When there is no alarm to go off and no footage of what is happening, the risk of getting caught diminishes drastically. That is why it is always a good idea to to install your surveillance cameras in an easy to see area just in case someone thinks of breaking in.

Alarm systems that you may get through Brinks or some other company are good. They send alerts to you or the security company who can then notify authorities. The only bad thing is that by the time that happens, it may already be too late. Surveillance cameras can provide physical evidence of both the crime and the intruder which can help police in capturing the thief or at least get some of your belongings back.

Surveillance systems have been considered a luxury in the past because they used to be very expensive. However, due to technological advances, full surveillance systems are affordable to nearly anybody who needs one. Just keep in mind the size of your property when getting a system. How big or how small your property is can greatly affect the type and price of your surveillance system.

Motion sensors are also a good idea. Many burglars are creative and can find holes in your system. That is why you should pay close attention to where you place your cameras and how you should angle them. Motion sensors will trigger your system whenever any motion is detected, eliminating the deficit of camera holes.

One good feature is the ability of your cameras to be integrated into your existing system. If you have an alarm system monitored by an alarm company, then you can also have them monitor your camera feeds as well. If you want another option, then you can always go with having your camera feed live footage directly to your home computer, mobile device or laptop.

Whichever way you roll the dice, you cannot go wrong with a comprehensive surveillance system. With one you can potentially deter criminals from breaking into your house for good or at least catch them in the act and have physical proof to give to your local authorities.

Biometric Security Surveillance

Biometric Security SurveillanceWhat is Biometric Security Surveillance? It sounds like something out of a spy movie, doesn't it? Well, Biometric Security Surveillance is basically technical methods through which your personality and/or unique factors that define who you are are calculated and thoroughly investigated so that they can be legitimized, acknowledged or recognized and/or examined for different purposes. There are many unique factors that humans possess. Patterns on the face, fingerprints, DNA and others are just a few examples. A person's personality may be in physical features like the way they walk, stand or sit, their voice, hair length, mannerisms etc... All of these things can be used in Biometric Security Surveillance.

Many technologies that deal with biometric security surveillance have been developed to date. Some use high quality video cameras that, when something like a face recognition program software has been installed, are able to give the desired results. This implies that even if the video was taken when the desired person was far away, even as far as 200 meters, and their face may not be recognizable to a normal video camera or the human eye, the facial recognition software will be able to clearly identify their face. Departments in the U.S. Government decided to fully fund these technologies to ensure that they are as efficient as possible when they first discovered them.

Recently, new discoveries have emerged that show a link between a person's DNA and their fingerprint. What this means is that by having a person's DNA in a computer database, they can scan their fingerprint and gain access to the secured location or data. This should make work for the Federal Government a lot faster and easier, and because of this they are building databases which will accommodate all of this information. The biometric information that will be contained in these databases will include fingerprints, palm prints, eye information, DNA, facial recognition information and as well as various other information.

There is also a program that has been developed to be used in conjunction with computers where a person's emotions can be analyzed based on a variety of different factors. This allows the computer program to predict the mood of a person from all the data it collects to come up with the current emotions for that person.

The new advancements in security are no less than spectacular. It seems like every day we are becoming more and more like the spy movies we watch. Soon we may even be able to make silicon faces of other people and mimic their voices, but I would not hold out on that for too long.

Driveway Security Cameras

Security Camera Tips and Benefits for Protecting Your Driveway

The use of Security Cameras at a private residence is becoming much more common. While not a new concept, recent advances in technology, the lowering of the cost of camera hardware, and the increased need for security in many areas have spurred this trend to record levels over the last year.

If you are new to the concept of using security cameras in order to keep an eye on your home or your driveway then we should  review some of the basic benefits and options that you may want to consider.
The first thing to consider is, obviously, what's in your driveway. Why, for example, would you want to watch your driveway in live time from inside your home or even in live time while on vacation? Is the need serious enough to justify the cost of a professional grade security system? Then, consider whether or not you would have the need to keep a recorded copy of the driveway activity. Also worth thinking about is the benefit of having the security system notify you via text message, phone call, or e-mail should there be activity in your driveway during any special time for which you have chosen to monitor and receive alerts for.

Many people simply want to keep an eye on their driveway because it contains some very expensive items. For example some people may park their RV in their driveway during the off season, and others may have a work truck or vehicle parked there with valuable tools. Other times you simply want to know who's come over or pulled into your driveway while you were out.
