Protect your family and property with M&D’s hi tech security camera and surveillance systems. Security cameras for both home and business.
Having been a Brooklyn resident for so long, we fully understand the security demands of Farragut residents. With two shops in Brooklyn, M&D Locks and Keys has been a permanent presence in the neighborhood for many years. Camera installations are on the rise here and you need a specialist who not only knows security, but knows the area.
Setting up and positioning your security cameras is not an easy task and it must be done properly if they are going to be effective at preventing robberies and burglaries. Therefore, we put together a summary of some of the frequent questions and concerns we receive from Farragut residents and business owners considering a new security camera system. It’s not a complete list so as always, make sure to give us a call at (718) 484-4050 should you have any questions or concerns.
Farragut residents use security cameras for a number of reasons, but the most popular are deterring criminals and break-ins, safeguarding family and property from theft and burglary and to check caregivers and domestic workers.
From our experience, research and servicing, we find that there are three manufacturers that set themselves above the rest. Those that routinely perform best are Samsung, Bosch and Sony. These are the three brand names M&D installs the most. We can update and support other makes and models.
Network or IP cameras are the best selling home security systems for our Farragut customers due to the fact they enable surveillance from any device. You can monitor your property from anywhere as long as you have a computer or other hand held device with access to the internet.
What’s a CCTV camera? CCTV stands for closed circuit television and is a type of network camera that allows one to monitor activity on a computer or television screen. These units have gone through significant improvements over the last few years by incorporating digital feed and sophisticated computer access devices.
Dome cameras provide a 360 degree view so they can rotate in any direction. Another highly popular system among Farragut residents and business owners, dome cameras offer the most flexibility. They can swivel in any direction without alerting intruders that they’re being watched. The dome glass is usually shaded, hiding the camera angle. If you’ve been to Atlantic City, it’s likely you have noticed the “eye-in-the-sky” dome cameras just above your blackjack table.
A less costly option, artificial camera systems present the look of surveillance without the price. The objective is that potential thieves will spot the camera and leave. Dome camera casing is usually used for fake cameras. These systems tend to be used by individuals who can’t afford a real security system, but still need a deterrent for would-be trespassers. They even have blinking lights to make them seem genuine.
Outdoor cameras are durable and able to endure intense weather conditions. The lenses are usually made from fog resistant glass so moisture doesn’t impede the view. Generally, owners will have them aimed in one area and have limited range. Higher end systems can rotate their direction, but the majority of cameras are motionless and need to be moved physically to change angles.
With infrared technology, night vision cameras enables one to keep an eye on an area almost completely obscured by darkness. The versatility of these units have improved significantly recently and now a number of them operate effectively in both day and night, providing 24 hour surveillance capability.
Some of the most popular installations for our customers are wireless systems. Both outdoor and indoor systems can be set up for wireless installation.
Covert and hidden spy units may take on the form of a smoke detector, stuffed animals, statues and even tissue boxes. They can be of very good quality, although we seldom recommend them because a concealed camera does al,most nothing to help deter crime. It’s always preferable to use cameras to avoid break-ins rather than capture them.
Auto sensor devices and movement detectors can be used with your home security system to help save power and digital storage space. Furthermore, certain devices are able to alert a security company. Several Farragut homeowners have their sensors configured for fire, smoke and hazardous toxins as well. Check with your security pro to find out which configurations are best for your needs.
They have become much easier over the last few years even with their sophisticated functionality. Your M&D technician will go through every function step-by-step with you until you are comfortable using your security camera system by yourself.
We highly recommend that you don’t position your system yourself.
We come across quite a few installations that are partially complete or were executed inaccurately because the client purchased their unit at Walmart or Target instead of from a home security expert. These outlets also provide discounted security devices, which are limited in the scope of their performance. Seldom are these models suitable for Farragut homes.
We highly recommend that a technician install and service your security camera system, even if you choose a different company.
Statistics demonstrate that effective use of security cameras can not only record activity, but can prevent break-ins and robberies, but only when the system is installed properly. The leading problem with inadequate systems is faulty installation and incorrect use. This is exactly why your cameras really need to be installed by a professional. It is not difficult for professional burglars canvassing Farragut to be able to tell if your units were put in correctly or not.
Use someone who knows what they’re doing. Don’t try putting in your cameras and wiring on your own. Your family is too precious to do it yourself. Call M&D at (718) 484-4050. Our technicians are experienced in Farragut home security installation. We’ll make sure your new system is fully operational and that you are able to operate it on your own.
As you’re shopping, check out both black and white as well as color units. Substantial savings might be involved, but there could be additional considerations as well. The amount of available light in an location may help you make a decision. Dimly lit areas in addition to those with a high degree of variable light will normally fare better with black and white. Black and white is typically better outdoors whenever lighting is not very controlled while color is typically better for indoor systems. This isn’t always the case, however, and you will find occasions when black and white systems are better indoors.
Selecting the proper resolution for your displays is important. The higher resolution, the clearer your images are going to be. Lower resolution may be cheaper, but are not a good choice for detailed facial or feature recognition.
It’s very important to make sure all your components work together. It’s typically not wise to combine manufacturers unless you know which of them work efficiently together.
First, here’s what we need to know: What do you want to track? Are there many rooms, a large house or a business to be monitored? What’s the square footage? Will your cameras be for indoor or outdoor surveillance? How advanced do you want your camera system? And how regularly are you going to be running your security camera system?
