Security cameras in the home enviroment are certainly nothing new, but in recent years they have become more and more common place. And while from the outset it may seem an unnescessary addition to home security, once installed they provide the home owner with a new found sense of security. I'm sure that most of us have experianced a time when we have been notified that something has triggered an alarm, and the stress it can cause from not knowing if it is a real intrusion or a false alarm. But what if we could just connect from our phone and have a look, as well as be able to disarm the system or perhaps isolate the offending zone, once we have visually inspected the premises. An occasion such as this instantly validates installing cameras in your home. Of course there is the added benefit of being able to check the status of a suspected open gate or garage door, which also can be controlled from your phone, if you have accidently left them open.
