Security Cameras FAQs
What to look for in a home security camera system?
The best home security camera system for you will depend on factors such as physical layout, internet access, recording requirements, wiring availability – and of course – what you want to see!
Some details to look out for are image quality, how video is recorded, security of the cameras, ongoing support and integration options.
Following a telephone or in-home consultation, a TELSCO security expert will recommend a custom camera solution based on your unique needs.
Do home security cameras deter crime?
Home security cameras may act as a visual deterrent for criminals but should not be relied on exclusively as a comprehensive home security solution.
Cameras are most valuable when paired with a home security system. With TELSCO Video Enhanced Response (not available from all providers) monitoring operators can utilize both the intrusion and video systems to expedite dispatch when a threat is confirmed.
How many home security cameras do I need?
The right number of home security cameras for you will depend on a variety of factors such as:
- The physical layout of your property
- Accessibility for wiring and placement
- What has prompted you to purchase security cameras?
- What do you want to see with the cameras?
- Do you want to view indoor and outdoor space?
A TELSCO security expert will conduct a consultation and design your security camera system based on your unique needs.
