We say home is where the heart is, the phrase means that no matter who you are with or where you are in the world, your family and home always have the deepest affection and emotional pull. It is the place where you have a foundation of love, warmth, and happy memories. It might not always be the building itself, but being near your loved ones. The love you receive from your family member is important and the security of that family is equally important.

The security of your family and that of your home should be your top priority. How then can you protect your family when you are not there?

Here are the 5 ways you can do surveillance around your home:

  1. Light Bulb Wireless Camera; Lightbulb cameras are just another variation of a hidden/ masked camera. They are actually a combination of a real lightbulb with a security camera usually hidden in the sordid, between the power source and the bulb itself. While they aren’t always super discrete, they usually blend in pretty well. At first glance, you probably won’t be able to tell the difference between a lightbulb or a security camera. Security Camera bulbs draw power for the camera from a standard light bulb plug, meaning they will readily fit and work in pretty much any adequately sized plug. The only caution here is that lightbulbs come in different sizes – the little tiny lamps ones, for example, won’t fit a standard sized light – so make sure you get a camera that will fit your plug. Most security camera light bulbs will also use WIFI to transmit the video they record. So, for it to be successful you will also need to have the internet in your home.
  2. Doorbell Monitor: The Doorbell camera image is reliant on the resolution and the viewing angle that your camera reaches. There is no exact distance that a doorbell camera can see, but with greater resolution and width, you will be able to see your entire entrance and pathway. This also depends on your front lawn set up. Having a doorbell camera can bring residents peace of mind in knowing that their home base is protected. Whether you are home or not, being able to see who is at your door or being alerted when a package arrives makes doorbell cameras a great technology to have for home protection and safety. Being able to see your entire lawn brings even more comfort.
  3. Video Door Phone: A video door phone system is a great security feature for your house. It is a standalone intercom system that is used to manage calls that come up at the entrance of a building or a home. It enables a person sitting indoors to know who is outside the door and if they wish, they can engage in a conversation and decide whether or not to let the person in. It works in conjunction with the audio and visual communications that happen between the indoor and outdoor environments.
  4. Hidden camera clock: Hidden cameras are designed to provide users with completely discreet surveillance options. Clock cameras are a popular subclass of hidden cameras. Clocks are commonly seen in many places, from commercial to residential, making them the least obvious of hidden camera surveillance options. Suspend an ordinary-looking wall clock, or position a digital alarm clock on a table in nearly any room to create an instantaneous surveillance opportunity.
  5. Nanny cams or teddy bear cams.: Nanny cams are security devices created for the sole purpose of monitoring the home while you’re away. Having a nanny cam for watching children and their caretakers while you’re away can add you peace of mind. Nanny cams come in a diversity of form factors, allowing parents to choose between hidden cameras and visible ones. Some cameras feature the ability to evaluate videotape remotely so you can always monitor your child’s care. When it comes to using a nanny cam in the home, parents frequently select devices that provide them with the option to evaluate footage from a far-off location, preferably in real-time, so that any incidents can be dealt with immediately. Nanny cams can be advantageous for watching other household employees as well. Such as workers doing work on the property, domestic sitters entering the household to feed or walk the dog, or any others who come and go while the homeowner is away.
