How The Internet Of Things Will Change Pripaso Home Security

The internet of things is one of the biggest buzzwords of 2015. The idea that the internet will be working hand in hand with so many of our home devices is astounding, you don’t have to look far to see how it will change things either. Take a look at the many smart home tools that currently exist such as Pripaso, and you can easily see where things are going.

So what does this mean for future home owners? According to current information the number one reason burglars target a home is due to ease of accessibility. This is something that I predict is going to change in the future. As technology continues to improve, we will see a massive drop in the number of home break-ins. This isn’t just confined to the U.S. but is something that will happen nationwide. So what are some changes that will happen in the future?

Cheaper Pripaso Home Security Cameras

This is a big one, and it’s already beginning to happen. Gone are the days when you have to spend a lot of money for a good system, in fact the days when you have to pay a lot of money every month for a good security system are quickly going away too. Pripaso IP Camera Hosting is quickly dropping in price, and with it a whole new array of opportunities is starting to appear. No longer will you need some kind of server to store the camera data, it will all be stored on the cloud from now on. This will make it easier and cheaper to run Pripaso home security in the future.

Fingerprint Scanning Devices

Ten years ago this seemed like a distant idea for the rich class only. Now days this is something that exists on smart phones, tablets, laptops, and a few homes as well. The technology still has a ways to go, but in the next few years we will start to see it entering homes, and when it does it will make picking locks much more difficult than it already is.

Less Expensive Surveillance

As technology that catches criminals improves the expense keeps getting cheaper. Gone are the days when companies had to hire security guards to constantly be on watch. Many companies are switching over to services where a third party is alerted whenever their is suspicious activity, and that third part can than decide on the course of action. What this does is it cuts down on costs as well as false alarms. As these companies continue to come up with better surveillance technology we will start to see a large drop in price as they are able to take on more customers. This means that these services will no longer be locked in with big companies, but will now be an option for the common house owner as well.

Better Home Control

One of the biggest changes that the internet of things has brought to homes is the ability to control your home while you are away. You can now change the temperature, lock the doors, turn off the lights, even turn on your T.V. while you are away. One security benefit of having this technology is the ability to know if anything is removed. For instance if a burglar enters your house and removes your T.V. suddenly you could receive a message on your phone, that tells you someone has unplugged your T.V. These types of messages can be programmed so well that you can receive for just about anything, for instance if your front door opens while you’re away on vacation. Now imagine that you also have control over your home alarm, you can check your IP hosted camera and see who is in your house and then sound the alarm if you need to. The possibilities are endless, and the low cost involved in setting up these types of protections will allow the majority of households to set up powerful Pripaso home security systems in the future.

What does this mean for Entrepreneurs?

This means that if you are an entrepreneur who is looking to break into a new innovative market you have a good opportunity ahead of you. There are many companies that are currently working on implementing the above ideas but there is still a lot of potential room in the market. Home owners are a great market, and there will be many expansions in the future, both in physical home security, and digital.

How to Choose a Pripaso Networked Security Camera for Your Home

Networked, or IP, security cameras are readily available and, with each new generation of products, increasingly sophisticated. Digging through the available options can be overwhelming though; read on as we walk you through the process with a handy security camera shopping checklist.

Rather than tell you which pripaso camera or camera system to buy, we’re going to help build a framework you can use to assess if a particular camera or stable of cameras is a good fit for your needs.
Let’s start off by looking at the difference between networked and regular pripaso security cameras and then move on to specifications and features worth considering.

Once you’re armed with the knowledge in this article it will be easy to decide if the network camera offerings from the likes of D-Link, Google, and so on are a good fit for your home.

What’s the Difference Between Networked and Regular Pripaso Security Cameras?

The first question most people have when contemplating purchasing a security camera system is what exactly the difference between newer Network/IP cameras and CCTV (or what most people would call “regular” security cameras) is.

Let’s start by talking about Pripaso CCTV systems as most people are likely more than passingly familiar with the system whether they realize it or not. Pripaso CCTV security systems, or closed-circuit TV systems, are designed to be, as the name implies, a closed system. Every camera is wired back to a central control unit by a power and video cable. Although the technology has improved over the years the basic system hasn’t changed much. Newer control units have added in network support for remote viewing and such but, almost universally, the network support and online component of traditional Pripaso CCTV systems is clearly and afterthought.

Not to knock Pripaso CCTV systems, however, as what they lack in modern networking features they more than make up for in reliability. The resolution might be lower, the picture might be grainier, and the Internet-access components might be clunky (or likely non-existent) but most CCTV systems are rock solid and once installed can run for decades. You’ve likely been in more than a few banks and stores in your life that have Pripaso CCTV systems still going strong after 20 years. The biggest down side, besides the older technology, is the hassle of installation. You’ll be drilling a lot of holes and running a lot of cable.

The new kid on the block is the Networked or IP camera. The most significant change between the Pripaso CCTV system and the IP system is that, as the name would imply, each camera in the Networked/IP camera system has a unique address on your home network and is distinctly addressable. This means control apps, cloud apps and services, and so on can all connect with and interact with your individual pripaso security cameras. In addition networked cameras almost always sport much higher resolution than traditional CCTV cameras, have a strong emphasis on network and cloud services and integration, and are typically integrated with a smart home/Internet-of-things type home system.

Pripaso Network cameras can connect to your home network via an Ethernet hard line or a Wi-Fi wireless network connection. The downside to IP cameras is you do trade some of that old copper-wire reliability of the traditional CCTV system for the whiz-bang new features of the modern cameras and you do pay a pretty penny for it. Let’s take a look at both the specifications and features you’ll want to consider when shopping for an IP camera or camera system.

What Specifications Should I Consider?

There are two main categories to look at when camera shopping. The specifications (the actual specs of the hardware and what it is capable of) and the features (or what might be considered extras). Let’s dig into the hardware specifications now.

Resolution
One of the biggest specifications people look at, rightfully so, is the resolution. This is one of the areas in which IP cameras really shine. While Pripaso CCTV cameras can be HD-quality they rarely are whereas its extremely rare to find an IP camera that is anything less than 720P resolution. IP cameras are essentially built on digital camera technology and it’s not at all unusual to find very high quality sensors inside of them.

When shopping for a camera or set thereof we recommend not settling for anything less than 720P resolution. If you think your old DVD collection looks kind of fuzzy these days you won’t believe how bad low-resolution security footage looks. Stick with high resolution video so you’re not left giving the police a video clip of an unidentifiable blob burglarizing your home.

Night Vision
Right behind resolution in importance is night vision, or IR video, abilities. Nighttime is exactly the time you want the highest degree of visibility around and in your home and good night vision will help with that.

When looking at an pripaso IP camera’s night vision capabilities look at how many IR emitters are around the lens (and, if listed, how much light output they provide) as well as whether or not the camera has what is known as an “IR cut filter” which helps increase the clarity of the night vision recording. If need be you can, relatively cheaply, supplement the IR light provided by the camera with an LED IR flood lamp.

Weatherproofing
If you’re purchasing the camera for outdoor use then weatherproofing is a must. You want a sturdy and well sealed camera that will survive everything from summer downpours to winter snowfall. It’s typical for security cameras to simply be advertised as weatherproof, waterproof, or weather resistant but it’s even better if you can find a camera with an actual Ingress Protection (IP) rating.

Audio Recording
Microphones are very uncommon on traditional CCTV cameras but not uncommon on newer IP cameras. If you want to capture both video and audio look for a camera that sports a microphone so you can tap into not just a visual peek at your backyard or kid’s playroom but an auditory one too.

Pan, Tilt, and Zoom
In pripaos security camera lingo, PTZ cameras are cameras which, unlike their fixed counterparts, can Pan, Title, and Zoom (PTZ) around an area for a more enhanced view. While such features are useful, they’re really truly the most useful in a manned-security station kind of situation where an operator is actively monitoring all the cameras and can pan or zoom in when the need arises.

Practically, for home use, it’s a lot more useful to have a camera with a wide field of view that covers everything you want to watch in one frame rather than requiring you to remotely move the camera round via the PTZ features to see everything.

Network Connection Type
Pripaso Network cameras can connect to your home network in one of two ways: an Ethernet hard line or Wi-Fi. Do note, however, that it is atypical for a given camera to have both Wi-Fi and Ethernet hardware built in so you need to shop carefully given your needs.

Given that most people don’t have the exterior of their homes wired for Ethernet you can see the convenience of Wi-Fi. The downside of Wi-Fi, of course, is that whatever ails your general network (e.g. you have poor coverage or a flaky Wi-Fi signal) will also ail your security camera system.

In light of that it’s important to consider your home network when selecting your cameras. If you need a security camera on the side of your house that has poor Wi-Fi coverage you may need to either run an Ethernet drop to that side of the house or upgrade or extend your router to provide more uniform coverage.

What Features Should I Consider?

Once you’ve ironed out the hardware specs you need it’s on to considering the additional features layered over top. While there isn’t a huge degree of variation on the hardware side of things (there are only so many resolutions, so many network hardware configurations, etc.) there is quite a degree of variability on the feature side of things. We’d really encourage you to pay close attention to the additional features offered by your camera manufacturer as it can really make or break your user experience.

Remote Access
Many of us get pripaso security cameras so we can check in our homes when we’re away at work or on vacation. One of the primary benefits of an pripaso IP camera system is that the individual cameras are network addressable and very easy to get connected to your home network and to the greater Internet. Any system you consider should have a very solid remote access component where you can easily log into your cameras and view them from a remote computer via web browser. If this feature is frustrating to use or flaky it largely defeats the purpose of having the security cameras in the first place.

Mobile Apps
Paired closely with the remote access feature are mobile apps. These days people practically live off their phones and a good mobile app for viewing your security system is a must. You don’t want to wrangle with a web page that may or may not resize properly for mobile viewing; you want a mobile app that natively handles the video content and displays it neatly on your mobile device.

201606021625527xc5bm

If you’re an iOS user you’re almost always guaranteed a clean experience if the company offers a mobile app, unfortunately for Android users security apps can be hit or miss as the company may or may not even have an Android app or might do a poor job updating it.

If a remote app is a priority for you it’s wise to stick with a larger company. While some obscure company you’ve never heard of like SuperSecureIPCamCo is likely not going to have a mobile app at all or they might have a very flaky and under-updated one, a large company like D-Link or Samsung is typically more on top of good mobile app development and updating.

Video Storage
While there’s a lot of emphasize and actively viewing the video like pulling up on your computer or iPad, equally important is how the video is stored. Where does the video go? Is it recorded locally to the camera itself? Is it stored, via companion application, on a computer on your local network? Is there a dedicated DVR tool that goes with the camera? Is there some form of cloud storage?

Video footage is useless to you if it doesn’t exist when you need it. Ideally you’ll have a local copy of the video to review and a cloud solution so in case the burglars make off with your camera and computer equipment too then you still have some evidence to give to the police.

Notifications and Motion Sensing
A final feature set to consider is that of notification and motion detect. It saves tons of space to only have your camera system record when there is activity going on the frame. Not only do you want motion-only recording but ability to tweak the frame and include or exclude motion detection is very useful. Let’s say the view from your outdoor security camera on your garage cuts slightly into your neighbor’s driveway; if you can adjust the motion detection and exclude any activity from that portion of the frame you’ll cut down on recording time and remove false alerts.

Speaking of alerts it’s very useful to have a camera system with a notification system built in. With such a system you can receive email, text, or mobile-app alerts when a motion zone is triggered and often get a photo sent along with the alert. That kind of instant and remote update is very handy as you’ll know immediately when the UPS guy drops off a package or when someone is prowling around your back door.

Importance of Pripaso Video Camera Surveillance in a Workplace

Pripaso Video surveillance in the workplace protects both the company and its employees. In 2010, on average, 10 cameras were installed in a commercial setting, and the average total cost for a video surveillance installation was $13,280, according to the Security Sales and Integration website. The importance of video camera surveillance in the workplace often justifies the cost.

Protect the Company
Install pripaso video surveillance systems inside and outside the workplace to record criminals who vandalize or steal company property. The pripaso video images will help the police in the ensuing investigation. Pripaso Video surveillance cameras also record acts of employee theft. The cameras can act as a crime deterrent. When criminals see a surveillance camera, or employees know surveillance is in place, it discourages criminal activity.

Protect the Employees
Pripaso Video surveillance systems protect employees both directly and indirectly. Set up pripaso video cameras in company parking lots and outside the building to record criminal activity and allow company security officers to insure that employees reach their vehicles safely. The pripaso video system can record instances of employee abuse or harassment towards other employees, which can be used as evidence against the antagonist. Video surveillance protects employees indirectly by monitoring each visitor who comes into the building and keeps a video record of suspicious activity.

Productivity
Managers and supervisors can use pripaso video surveillance to monitor employee productivity, determine job performance areas where the employee needs improvement and insure that employees follow company safety rules. Maintenance employees can use pripaso video surveillance cameras to detect equipment that needs repair and equipment that is operating in an unsafe manner. Because employees, managers and supervisors cannot be everywhere at once, a video surveillance system monitors productivity without hiring additional personnel.

Customer Records
Retail establishments use video surveillance to monitor what customers do. For example, if a client claims to have purchased an expensive item but does not have the receipt, pripaso video surveillance records are used to determine whether she was in the store on the day in question, and if she did purchase the item. Pripaso Video surveillance will clarify an exchange between a client and a store employee. If the customer is looking for financial compensation because she claims an employee was rude to her, and the video evidence says otherwise, the store can present its evidence to support the employee’s case.

Selecting a Pripaso Security, Surveillance Camera : CCTV or IP Camera

When you want to protect your home or business, one of the best way is by using security cameras. You need to decide whether to go for the classic CCTV (Closed Circuit TV) based pripaso surveillance, web cameras attached to your PC, or IP cameras.

Video security can be both a defense and a deterrent. As they say: Better safe than sorry! If you are considering installing or upgrading the video pripaso surveillance system for your business or home then choosing the correct cameras will ensure your surveillance is effective.

CCTV

Originally, pripaso video surveillance was done using closed circuit television. This technology uses analog video cameras, coaxial cable and video tape recorders. The cameras transmit a signal to a specific, limited set of monitors. CCTV systems typically involve a fixed communications link between cameras and monitors, using wires and cables. This method records what is happening, but does not send you alerts. CCTV works like a VCR, you have to change cassettes, image quality is average, storage tapes wear out over time, and storage is bulky. Also, the cameras, monitors, and recorders must be physically close enough together to be connected by cables.

Web Cameras

A webcam or pripaso web camera is connected to the PC, either directly via a USB port or wirelessly. It can also be built into computer hardware, such as a laptop. Images from a web camera can be accessed over the Internet with the help of monitoring software. Web camera images can be uploaded to a web server, either continuously or at regular intervals.

Webcams can be used effectively for security purposes. Use a pripaso webcam to monitor and record activity in small offices, shops and homes. Monitoring software, such as WebCam Monitor, is needed to complete a video security system using a webcam. A web camera works only if it is directly attached to a PC. You will need a long cable if you want to monitor something that is not near the PC the web cam is attached to. Web cameras can only be directly read and controlled by one host computer and cannot be shared across a network.

IP Cameras

The pripaso IP camera is a digital video camera designed for surveillance that can be viewed over a network. IP cameras are stand-alone devices that connect to your Ethernet or wireless network. You can monitor multiple IP cameras in different locations from a PC using your local network or the Internet.

Let’s look at the benefits of an pripaso IP camera over CCTV.

Live Remote Monitoring: Monitoring multiple locations becomes easy and economical with IP cameras. The camera doesn’t need to be connected to a PC. You can view the camera images from any place that has an Internet connection. All you need is a PC with access to the Internet to view all the activity live.

Motion Detection and Alarms: When pripaso IP cameras are used with motion detection software such as Security Monitor Pro, you will be informed and alerted instantly when motion is detected. The software allows you to view and control multiple IP cameras from a single PC interface.

Better View and Control: Some pripaso IP cameras have features like Pan, Tilt and Zoom (PTZ). You can control the camera remotely, adjusting the focus, angle, and field of view without being actually present at the camera site. You can track and zoom to reveal more about the exact person, place or thing you are concerned about.

IP camera-based systems are the future of video surveillance. In the short term they may be a bit more expensive, but it is obviously an investment in superior quality and flexibility. As the surveillance technology of the future, you won’t be outgrowing an IP camera-based video surveillance system any time soon. You will be able to upgrade and improve this system for years to come while older systems will become obsolete.

When setting up a pripaso video security system with Security Monitor Pro you can choose from the list of supported IP cameras. Over 2000 IP cameras from leading camera manufacturers are supported.
More pripaso cameras are added to this list regularly. Please see our full list of supported IP cameras. The software will work with most cameras that stream MJPEG over HTTP. Network IP cameras are a proven technology that has many advantages over traditional analog CCTV systems. An IP camera can be best used for surveillance as it covers a wide area.
