Make a Home Movie This Holiday Season With Security Cameras

Nov 21, 2016|

While homeowners often invest in home security cameras for the safety of their property and family, these cameras can provide more function than their intended purpose. Think outside the box when putting your home surveillance cameras to use, and the upcoming winter holidays are the perfect time to do just that. Let's examine how to create a holiday home movie using your home's security cameras.

Recording more than break-ins

As their name implies, home security cameras and packages are intended for watching over your property. When you choose a home security package, your home isn't only being monitored around the clock, but the camera's recordings are being stored in the cloud for you to view at a later time. This makes home monitoring cameras a great asset beyond their security purposes.

Video cameras can be used for checking in on children or elderly parents when you're not around via an app. Your cameras can also help you solve mysteries and deter outdoor pests, like that raccoon digging up your flower garden. With the versatility of these smart home devices, they could catch a glimpse of that jolly old man who might land on your roof, too.

Setting up a Santa cam

If your family enjoys the Santa Clause tale, your home security cameras can be right in on the action. With the ability to splice clips together from outdoor cameras, homeowners could put together quite the footage to show off a Santa sighting. Just find a willing participant to dress up in the red suit and trek around your yard.

Capturing holiday memories

The same feature of splicing video from indoors and outdoors can capture beautiful holiday memories with your family. Opening presents, decorating for the holidays outdoors and enjoying a holiday meal can all be recorded on your home cameras.

Perhaps the best part of capturing holiday memories with your home's security cameras is you still get to be in them. So many times, the person behind the camera in a home movie is rarely seen, but with these recordings, everyone is involved and in the moment.

Home security cameras are most often used for keeping homes secure, but by using them in different ways, you can see the additional value in a home security system. Use your recordings to make a beautiful home movie for your family to cherish for years to come.
