Security cameras can radically change how safe you and your family feel in and out of your home in Las Vegas. Just as well, security cameras are a valuable asset for businesses. But what exactly do security cameras do to deter crime? Are they actually worth the investment? Let’s take a look at what exactly security cameras do, and why they’re so valuable for business owners and homeowners.
What Do Security Cameras Do?
A security camera is a video recording device that records footage of your home, property, or business. Today’s modern security camera systems will make it easy to access that footage in real-time on your smartphone, tablet, computer, or other device with an internet connection. There are virtually endless options when it comes to security cameras.
Security cameras can be motion-activated, meaning that they save energy and data storage by only turning on and recording when movement is detected. However, Sting Alarm offers specific AI-based technology that is capable of determining whether the movement of something is alert-worthy. For example: For residents who live farther away from the city in Las Vegas, it’s very likely that small desert animals and lizards trip your security camera system. Our camera’s unique technology is capable of determining whether or not movement occurred from a lizard or a human being. Simply put, this makes Sting Alarm's security cameras more relevant and more actionable for all of our customers.
Security cameras are incredible little tools for adding some security and peace of mind to your everyday life. They can also be customized to fit your individual use cases and lifestyle. Perhaps you don’t need a ten-camera multi-functioning AI-based security system. Maybe you just want to install a couple of cameras outside of your business, and want to be able to access those cameras remotely. That’s the beauty of security cameras as part of a whole security system-- you can be in control of your own security and keep an eye on the things that matter.
"Homeowners, in general, like to be able to keep an eye on things. Whether it's knowing about particular incidents or simply seeing who just came to the front door," says founder of VanWert Technology Design David VanWert in a consultation for US News, "A security camera can do that for you.”
Does Every Home or Business Need Security Cameras?
This depends on the area in which you live. In Las Vegas, property crime is on the rise. Annually, homeowners and business owners experience 18,793 property crimes. And with a crime rate of 29.15 per 1,000 residents, it’s clear that the beauty of Las Vegas also has its negative side. This simply means that investing in a home or business security camera system could give residents of Las Vegas additional peace of mind and tangible security barriers.
When it comes to owning or running a business, regardless of where you live, it’s always a good idea to invest in some form of a security system. This isn’t just because security cameras can deter theft, property damage, or violent crimes. Cameras can also help business owners ensure the safety of employees and record instances of injury or accidents for legal purposes. Video surveillance can also prevent instances of shoplifting within a business, as well as fraud, employee theft, and burglary. Security camera systems put customers’ and employees concerns for safety at ease.
Improve Your Home Security with Cameras from Sting Alarm
We’ve established that security cameras have a ton of value for businesses and homes alike. However, there’s a big distinction between traditional home security cameras and modern security cameras. Traditional security cameras are often obsolete in design, require a lot of messy wires, and have limited capacity in terms of video definition and storage. Modern home security camera systems from Sting Alarm are quite different. To put it simply, traditional security systems are only really good for finding information about a break-in after it occurs. Modern security cameras aren’t just cameras-- they’re crime deterrents.
At Sting Alarm, we offer smart home security camera systems to suit any unique need, be it for home or business. Smart cameras can upload data to the cloud, rather than to clunky and unreliable physical hard drives. Just as well, our cameras have incredibly high definition video, so there’s no need to worry about grainy and possibly useless video after a crime or break-in has happened. Our systems can even provide you with real-time alerts of potentially suspicious activity, before the worst occurs. Our platform is also mobile-based, so you can customize your alerts and surveillance preferences right from your smartphone device. The world of home security cameras has changed drastically, and we’re excited to offer these new security solutions to our customers.
Whether you need a doorbell security camera that can be accessed from your phone or a full business security camera system for the inside and outside of your businesses, Sting Alarm is ready to help you take your security to the next level. We believe Las Vegas residents and business owners deserve to sleep well at night knowing their families and properties are well protected. We want to extend that luxury to you.
