Western Australia, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/23/2014 -- According to the Western Australian Police, 49,658 total offences against property were reported between July 2013 and October 2013 in Western Australia. Crimes reported include burglary (both dwelling and non-dwelling), arson, motor vehicle theft, theft and damage against property. "Home owners and small businesses need to be concerned about these statistics as they only take into account those offences which were reported to the police," Mr Michael H Ashby of Alert and Secure points out.
When purchasing electronic security systems, home and business owners need to pay close attention to the type of camera purchased as the quality of the footage plays a large role in the catching of the perpetrators. Poor image quality becomes a problem when the tape being used in the system is used repeatedly without being replaced, when the camera is of inferior quality or the digital recording device being used to capture the security cameras' images use too much compression or poor resolution. "With so many home security cameras to select from, home owners find choosing a camera that fits their budget while offering good image quality isn't an issue with the help of Alert and Secure," Ashby continues.
Security goes much further than protecting the perimeter of the home to ensure intruders don't enter without the home owner's knowledge. Parents now need to be concerned about what is happening within the home and wireless cameras and home security can be of assistance here also. "Many parents request a wireless baby monitor with a night vision camera with audio when they discover they are expecting or choose to purchase a LCD screen wireless portable baby monitor once the little one arrives. Alert and Secure offers a wide variety of cameras to meet any need and any budget," Ashby explains.
Wireless cameras offer many options, allowing consumers to quickly find home cameras for security that meets their needs. Consider maximum resolution, field of view, motion detection, pan/tilt and digital zoom along with other features when choosing a wireless camera. Consumers also need to determine which type of monitoring they prefer, such as 24-hour monitoring or interactive monitoring. "Security devices and help and support remain important aspects to take into account when choosing a wireless camera to ensure the family and property are protected at all times," Ashby goes on to say.
Digital and IP "Internet Protocol" cameras offer many of the same features, allowing each buyer to choose which features are of most importance to them. "When one finds they are struggling to choose a camera for the home, Alert and Secure staff members are ready and willing to step in to make the decision process easier. Customers have different needs and staff members work with the customer to narrow down the many choices until they find the camera or system that is right for the client's home as our goal is to sell Peace of Mind to everyone working with Alert and Secure," Ashby declares.
