Nowadays, there are a lot of home security camera installation companies available in the market. You can choose the best if you know well enough about the system.
Let’s start with, why we need a security camera installation?
The simple and straightforward answer is. You are safe, starting from the small theft to the larger lawsuits.
There are two types of security camera systems available in the market. The monthly fee-based and a one-time purchase.
Should we go with the monthly fee-based home monitoring plans? Or buy our system and bear a one-time purchase cost and installation expenses?.
The main benefits of monthly fee-based home monitoring systems are.
Fact: The final price of a “one-time purchase” and “subscription” based home security system is the same in most cases.
Most providers in the Greater Toronto Area will charge you around $30/Month for a basic home security system. So you end up paying $720 in two years. And a similar system will cost you around $500(+installation and repair charges).
If you do not want to go with the contracts and subscriptions, you can purchase your own home security system.
The number of cameras depends on the size and type of the house.
5 outdoor and 2 indoor cameras are enough for monitoring a detached house. For a semi-detached house, 4 outdoor and 2 indoor cameras are sufficient and 3 outdoor and 2 indoor cameras can secure a townhouse.
The best place to install indoor home security cameras is the front door, back door and, kitchen. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 81% of burglars enter through the front door. One indoor security camera in the kitchen can save us against fire, smoke, and any misbehave of any electrical equipment in your absence.

Fortunately, the 4K video recording camera system is available in the market. The 4K video provides a more detailed video and colors. On the other side, it consumes a lot of storage space, 1 hour 4K video takes up an average of 100 gigs of space. You can reduce the space utilization in the camera settings.
The night recording system is great for the security of your home and business. The night vision camera system can record the colors at the night.
Motion detection is the best safety feature. It can detect the unwanted movements in the focus are depending upon your configuration. The settings of a motion detection system are quite complex, depending on what type of motion you choose to detect and record, such as the movement of animals, the movement of humans and vehicles. Motion detection settings can be tailored to your needs, such as, if you live on a farm, you will also record the movements of animals approaching the house, but not necessarily in the city.
The siren system alerts you if any movement occurs against the settings in the motion detection system.
The face recognizations system can store family and friends’ faces.
The security camera with two-way audio recording is the best, can replace the video doorbell. If an advertiser, a home seller, or a parcel delivery steps to the door, you can see and talk without opening the door.
Three main audio features of home security cameras are.
Not useful at all, no need to go for one way audio home security system.
The 4K camera system with two-way audio is quite safe for the home. You can talk to the visitors without opening the door.
I recommend it, you can keep the recording for future use.
This feature is added security because the camera can tilt, rotate, and auto-zoom when needed. The Point Tilt Zoom feature is available in the wired home security system. The PTZ is also available in wireless home security camera systems. It consumes more power than the wired PTZ camera system.
As of today, there are two types of storage options available in the home security camera system.
Most wireless systems are equipped with a cloud storage system. Normally 5 to 25 GB of storage space is free, then you have to buy a subscription plan or delete the footage.
Many wireless systems such as Arlo and almost all wired systems offer local storage. As mentioned earlier, as far as possible, buy a camera system with local storage, because you have full control over your footage. Another benefit of local storage security camera system is you do not need to pay a monthly fee for the storage.
Nowadays, almost all home security systems, both Wired and Wireless, comes with the Smart Assistant Compatibility feature.
Personally, I prefer a home security camera system equipped with google assistant support features.
This feature is much needed in the indoor security camera system.
Almost every camera system is temperature adjustable. The temperature-adjusted system is measured with IP(ingress protection), the larger the number of IP ratings the better. A home camera system with an ip66 or ip67 rating is usually the best for Canadian weather.
