Home security systems can dramatically improve physical safety, protect belongings and bring peace of mind to you. Our insider tips make it easier to choose an effective and affordable system from Qsee. Here are a few answers to common questions about home security equipment and monitoring plans.
What features are included in a basic home security system?
Home security systems are available with many features, but basic features alone might meet your needs. A basic equipment set provides one or more infrared sensors to detect motion inside the home. Which can trigger the notification through APP. Furthermore, on large scales like Business places, These sensors link to a control panel that has a loud siren and a connection to the monitoring company, which can dispatch emergency personnel.
What advanced features are available for home security?
Advanced security systems combine the basic components described above (sensors and a control panel). Example like, a Doorbell security camera sends mobile notifications when the doorbell rings and lets you watch surveillance footage from your smartphone. You can speak with the visitor and create the effect that you’re actually at home. Furthermore, Door locks with key codes and smartphone remote control are other advanced security features. These are especially popular with real estate agents and with residents who have frequent visitors such as health care providers, dog walkers and babysitters.
Surveillance cameras add yet another layer of home security. Control panels can include cameras for capturing still images or video and of course, cameras can be set up throughout the home and outdoors. If anything unusual occurs Rather than customized settings, the App will Alert you with a notification.
What kinds of home security cameras are available?
Modern indoor/outdoor video surveillance for home security is full color, full motion and high resolution. The best security cameras have night vision and quickly adapt to changes in lighting. Some allow remote monitoring and control via a mobile device or desktop computer.
The main difference between indoor and outdoor security cameras is the construction quality; it varies because outdoor cameras need to withstand harsher conditions. Some outdoor security cameras are enhanced with heaters and fans to help protect against the elements. Outdoor cameras also need to be more durable because they’re particularly vulnerable to attempted disabling by criminals. Some are housed in especially tamper-proof casings.
When choosing video surveillance you can choose between fixed and moving cameras. In some cases, a fixed camera makes the most sense, for example, when you need to monitor a specific place. When a moving camera is best, dome cameras are recommended because they make it more difficult to evade view. A dome camera can cover 360 degrees but makes it impossible for onlookers to know where the lens is pointed.
Will my pet trigger the motion detector?
Home security systems can be fully functional even when pets share your home. Modern home security technology can distinguish between the movements of humans and animal companions. Speed and movement patterns are considered along with mass to help ensure that pets don’t trigger false alarms.
What are the “smart home” or home automation features of security systems?

Mobile apps for security systems can also control and monitor your home’s lighting, thermostat and other systems. Customers choose home automation for added security, for convenience and to better control their utility expenses.
Should I choose a wired or wireless security system?
Wired and wireless security systems each have advantages and disadvantages.
A wired system might be the most reliable, but there’s a risk of wires being cut. Wired systems involve more labor for installation too.
Wireless systems can be used in more places and can be installed in about 30 minutes without help from a technician. They’re portable too; you can move a wireless system from one property to another. Cellular signals used by wireless security systems are more powerful than those used on cell phones, but a poor signal and electromagnetic interference are still possibilities.
Do wireless security systems work during home power failures?
Some wireless security systems can function during power outages. It depends on how the security system communicates with the monitoring center. If the Internet or VoIP is used, then the system will lose connectivity in the event of an Internet outage. If cellular connectivity and solar power or battery powered are used, then your system will be able to maintain communication even when the power is out.
Do I need to sign a long contract for home security monitoring?
No. Not every home security requires a long-term contract; monitoring agreements can be month-to-month. Or it can be flexible with other options like SD card for the storage.
What if I want to switch companies? Is security equipment transferable?

Furthermore, for best results of surveillance and to avoid complications it’s generally best to get equipment and monitoring from the same company. Qsee offers a single App to connect all the devices together for better service for your smart home.
What if a criminal breaks the control panel?
Many device panels are built to be tamper-proof. If an intruder attempts to disable security by damaging the control panel, the control panel will alert the monitoring company to dispatch emergency personnel. So It’s not easy for a intruder to break control panel.
What happens if there’s a false alarm?
Avoiding false alarms is important because
1) alarms are noisy and 2) false alarms sometimes lead to fines.
Penalties for false alarms vary by cities. A couple of measures help protect against unneeded emergency response. First, by law an alarm company needs to give you 30 seconds to disable the alarm. Second, if an alarm is triggered you’ll have the opportunity to tell the monitoring company that no service is needed.
