Your easy guide to choosing the right system to keep watch over any space, no matter the size or type of building
If you own or manage a business or multi-unit development, you know that one of your most important jobs is keeping the people in your building safe. There are all sorts of ways to do this: Alarm systems, security guards, motions sensors, and so on.
One of the most effective tools you have in your security toolbox is surveillance systems; after all, what better way to keep an eye on your property than being able to literally look and see what’s happening anytime you want? But if you’re going to invest in surveillance cameras, you want to know that the equipment you’re buying can accommodate all your needs. To help you out, we’ve put together this guide to help you find the best home security cameras for your Los Angeles building.
For the Front Door: Ring Spotlight Cam
The obvious place to start with security is your front door, as it’s where you’ll get the most amount of foot traffic on any given day. If you’re looking for an all-encompassing security camera to watch your front door or other entrances, you can’t go wrong with the Ring Spotlight Cam.
The Ring Spotlight Cam comes in several different forms, depending on whether you want a model with a wired power source, one that uses batteries or one that runs off solar power. But all Ring Spotlight cameras have several key features in common.
All Spotlight cameras have 1080p resolution, giving you a crystal-clear image of what’s happening. All Spotlight models also feature two-way microphones to let you talk to whomever is outside your door. Combined with a 110-decibel siren, advanced motion detection, night vision technology and integration with the Alexa and Google virtual assistants, the Spotlight makes a worthy addition to any surveillance system.
For Indoors: Amazon Cloud Cam
While keeping an eye on your property’s exterior is important, you also want to know what’s happening inside. To do that, we recommend the Amazon Cloud Cam.
The Cloud Cam has several features that make it a fitting choice for indoor surveillance. Like the Spotlight, you get a video feed with 1080p resolution. The Cloud Cam also sends out rapid notifications to your phone or other device if it detects motion after hours.
Unlike with some other cameras, you also get free 24-hour clip storage with the Cloud Cam, which makes it easy to go back and review what happened if someone breaks into your building. The Cloud Cam has also been noted in several publications for how easy its app is to use, which makes it even more appealing.
For Outdoors: Next Cam Outdoor
The Nest Cam Outdoor integrates with most smart home systems, has a two-way microphone like the Ring Spotlight and has advanced motion detection capabilities. This makes it a no-brainer for your outdoor security needs.
There are other features that make the Nest Cam Outdoor an attractive option. It’s designed with a weatherproof plug for its power supply, which helps it better withstand the elements. And if you opt to subscribe to Nest’s Aware service, you get continuous 24/7 recording and the ability to create customizable security zones.
