Most modern indoor security cameras allow you to view live footage at the click of a button.
Over the last few years, the development of security cameras has improved massively. Now, there are HD options, cameras that record sound, and the latest phase: indoor security cameras that let you view a live feed, even interacting with people on the other end if necessary.
This blog post will discuss more on live footage, including why it’s useful, what cameras offer this setting, and more.
Why is it useful?
There are several reasons why you may need to access a live feed of an indoor security camera.
For example, let’s say you are away from home and a babysitter is watching your kids. Naturally, you may feel a little uneasy at first.
Tuning in to the live footage lets you ensure the babysitter is doing their job correctly, allowing you to feel confident and at ease.
Furthermore, some indoor security cameras let you speak to those on the other end. So in our example, you may be able to say goodnight to your kids when you’re working late at the office or just won’t make it home in time.
It’s like you’re there, but you’re not really there…
What indoor security cameras provide live footage?
It’s important to note that not all indoor security cameras provide live footage.
When purchasing a new camera, check the specifications and key features to see whether or not this is included beforehand.
Despite this, you may not require live footage. If this is the case, then you can likely save a little bit of money, investing in a more basic/standard camera.
Finally, some indoor security cameras, including the one we recommended above, provide real-time alerts and footage in response to your home or property movement.
This is useful for when you’re out of town, in the office, or lying awake late at night wondering “what that noise was.”
We’ve all been there—several times.
Detecting the movement early and tuning in to the camera allows you to plan your next steps, whether that’s calling the police or settling back into your chair after quite the scare over nothing.
It’s a nice feature to have, especially if you’re particularly paranoid when it comes to home security. Which, let’s face it, many of us are!
