Are You Making The Most Of Your Home Surveillance Video Alerts?

August 25th, 2019



Advances in modern Peoria, IL home surveillance systems aren’t limited to video quality or storage solutions. These advances can also be found in how we receive and share the video footage our surveillance cameras provide. Cameras may be programmed to record based on certain triggers, like motion, opened doors, or alarms triggering, and you can receive alerts each time your surveillance cameras are triggered. This keeps you in the know at all times regarding how your surveillance system is working for you. 

Video alerts may be something you’re already aware of, but are you using them effectively? With effective use, these video alerts can give you greater control over your Peoria, IL home and your security like never before. 

Ways To Take Advantage Of Your Alerts 

There are a number of ways you can take advantage of your security camera alerts. A few of these ways are: 

  • Stay in the know in case of an emergency – The second an emergency occurs, like a fire, a flood, or a potential break-in, you’ll be alerted via text, email, call, or any combination. Checking your footage right away lets you in on exactly what is going on back home, keeping you in the know and able to take appropriate action. This also lets you know if any “emergency” is truly a false alarm, so you have peace of mind when you need it most.
  • Keep track of the kids – If you’re expected newly independent kids home from school at 3pm, but you don’t get home until 5pm, this can create a couple of hours of unneeded stress. With home surveillance video alerts triggered to let you know when door activity is picked up, you’ll always know that the kids made it home safely and that they’re in the house where they belong. This can also be used to ensure teenagers are home by curfew, that no guests are over when they’re not supposed to be, and that kids are at home doing homework when they said they would be.
  • Keep an eye on pets – With a camera set to record and alert when motion is detected, you can keep an eye on pets while you’re away from home. If you come home to the trash can on its side and rubbish all across the floor, and you’re not sure who is responsible, your surveillance and alerts will solve the mystery.
