While video surveillance systems are not a new invention, the fact is that advancements in technology are now fine-tuning this important aspect of nearly all home security systems.

How do wireless security camera systems work to improve home security?

Vivint home security systems create a number of valuable benefits. But wireless security cameras are probably the most beneficial of all components. That's because of five main functions wireless security cameras introduce to home security systems. Those are: motion detection, wireless technology, scheduled recording, remote viewing, and automatic cloud storage. Those security camera functions have made Vivint href="" target="_blank">home security systems systems are now more effective than ever.

Wireless Technology

Vivint wireless security camera systems have eliminated the need for bulky and obtrusive wiring that must be run to each camera, as well as offering a number of convenient features.

Whether indoors or out, wired security camera systems have one major fault – the wires can alert intruders that there is a surveillance system in place and they can cut the wires to avoid detection. With Vivint wireless security camera systems, there are no wires to alert intruders that they are being monitored, and they still work even if the power goes out.

Motion Detectors

Vivint wireless security camera systems can be outfitted with motion sensor technology that is both energy-efficient and more secure. Security cameras that include motion detectors will start recording automatically any time they sense movement in the area. In the case of pan-and-tilt cameras, the camera lens will automatically point itself in the direction of the motion and record.

Scheduled Recording

One of the biggest advantages of Vivint wireless security camera systems is the option to control your system’s recording schedule. Aside from receiving video clips whenever motion is detected, an alarm is activated, or a sensor is triggered, you can also schedule your surveillance system to automatically record at certain times.

This feature allows you to ensure that your home is as safe as possible. Whether you are remotely monitoring the kids after school, keeping an eye on the babysitter or simply ensuring that hired personnel are doing their job while you are away, scheduled recording ensures that you know what is going on in your home at all times.

Cloud Storage

Among the many advanced features of a wireless home surveillance system from Vivint, cloud storage is one of the key components that hold it all together. All images and video clips that are recorded with a Vivint surveillance system are automatically transferred via your home’s Wi-Fi to Vivint’s Space Monkey cloud storage, where it can be accessed at any time from your home’s control panel, Vivint’s mobile app, or your online account.

Remote Access

Finally, the key component that makes Vivint’s wireless home surveillance systems more convenient than any other – remote access. Vivint allows you to remotely access, monitor, control, and adjust all of your home’s surveillance systems from your online account, mobile app, or SkyControl panel. This means that you can control, monitor, and manage your home from anywhere, whether you’re at home, on vacation in the Bahamas, at work, or in your car. Anywhere that you go, you can access and view what is happening at your home.
