3 Ways Video Cameras Protect Your Home During Holidays

Video cameras for surveillance and home security can be valuable. A 2013 study from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte found that visible video surveillance was an effective deterrent for convicted burglars. Deterring a burglar or catching one in the act is a huge benefit of security camera devices, but they can also make your life much more convenient –particularly when you’re very busy during the holiday season.

Guardian offers three main types of video security devices: indoor cameras, outdoor cameras and the HD Video doorbell. Any one of these devices could make your life easier every day, especially during the holidays.  Here’s how:

Start With a Doorbell Camera

An HD Video doorbell is a great tool when you are having a lot of people come to your door. Whether you’re having a lot of packages delivered or have some guests coming to visit, you’ll be notified when someone rings the doorbell and you’ll be able to see who they are and talk to them, all from your -internet-connected smartphone. As you’re anxiously preparing for festivities, you don’t have to worry about always being able to answer the door. Pair the video doorbell with a smart lock and things get even more convenient.

Check-in While Running Errands

Whether you have to run out to grab something, or are traveling to see family for a couple of days, you can look into your home using the live video feature. This is a great feature for checking in on your pets when you’re at work, making sure the kids got home after school or just checking to make sure that everything looks fine when you’re travelling. Any time you have your smart phone and internet access, you have access to see wherever you have focused your camera. Indoor cameras can be easy to move around, as well, if you have a particular area of interest that you want to monitor. You can even zoom in if you want to see something closer.

Record It

Set up your camera to capture video clips triggered by specific actions, like when a certain door opens or your alarm goes off. You can use this to monitor where you’re hiding the presents or just to make sure that you catch any funny business going on in your home, yard or at the front door. Catch something you want to share? You can easily share with the Guardian App.

All these features are a click away through the Guardian App. No matter what your holiday plans are, this time of year is stressful. In conjunction with a home security system, your video security can lend a helping hand and give you extra peace of mind in your home whether you are entertaining in your home, have family to stay as guests or are travelling during the season.

        Hi Dace,
        There are a couple of different factors involved with the pricing of the doorbell. I will have a representative reach out to you to talk about pricing and compatibility.

    I would love to equip my house with every feature you guys offer because Guardian is lightyears ahead of the other companies. Unfortunately, the prices are a little steep to do it all. Are there upgrade packages to start upgrading my system little by little?
