Protect your Vacation Home in style with Platinum CCTV Security camera systems
Anyone with a vacation home knows that from the moment you leave your home away from home to the moment you return, there is always some worry in the back of your mind. These worries can range from the basic “Did I remember to lock all the doors” to the crucial “Will my sump pump overflow or my pipes freeze while I’m away”. No matter what your concern with your vacation home, our Platinum CCTV™ Standalone DVR and PC based DVR systems have the peace of mind that you seek. From LIVE Video remote viewing from PDA phones, to email and text message alerts when freeze sensors, water sensors, motion sensors or door sensors are tripped off, our security camera systems are a must-have for any vacation home owner who is serious about protecting their property from both theft, vandalism and damage from the elements.
The basic fears of home security are abated through off-site live video remote viewing features which are built-in to each of our security camera systems. With these systems, you can check in on your slice of paradise at any time, allowing you to see live in real-time what is happening at your home from your iPhone, Android Phone, Windows Phone 8 or other PDA phones or tablets. Remote viewing over the internet uses your existing internet connection, so there are NO MONTHLY FEEs for remote viewing.
Platinum CCTV Standalone DVR Systems for Vacation Homes
The first type of vacation home security camera system is our H.264 Real Time Standalone DVRs are a newly released update to our previous standalone DVR recorders, which will plug into your security cameras, provide remote viewing from PC, Laptop, Mac, iPhone, Android and Windows Phones and even provide some higher level features that are not present in most DVRs, which we will discuss later. These standalone DVRs are about the size of a DVD player, so they will fit almost anywhere in your home, and do not require you to have a PC on location with the cameras to record.
Our higher-end security camera systems use a PC for recording, they consist of a PC software (and sometimes a DVR Card) and will use a PC at your vacation home to perform the recording. These systems have a bit more processing power, and therefore can offer some higher level features and functionality, especially from a remote site. Our Alnet® PC Based NVR (Network Video Recorder) systems consist of Platinum CCTV™ High Definition MegaPixel IP Cameras and a software that will record in HDTV resolution from these cameras onto a PC right over the network, while our Alnet PC-Based DVR Card/Software systems will record from traditional CCTV security cameras onto your computer. Both types of Alnet PC-Based DVR/NVR Systems offer enhanced remote viewing features, allowing live view and Playback of video from PCs, Laptops, iPhones, Androids, Windows Phone 8 and other PDA phones. This system also allows control of moving cameras, DIgital Zoom on live view of cameras, control of Digital inputs and outputs and more, making it the ideal choice for users who like to digitally visit their vacation homes often.
For advanced-level alerts, our Standalone DVR AND PC Based systems even offer the ability to connect external sensors to allow you to get alerts when sensors are tripped off. This means that you can wire up your vacation home to let you know when doors are opened with door sensors, when movement is detected with motion sensors, or even when pipes are approaching freezing temperatures (freeze sensors) or moisture is detected (Water/Fluid sensors). Using these positive style sensors, you can get alerts live to your phone or email when something of interest happens. For example, I was moved to write this today, as my Alnet® PC Based NVR System sent me a text message alert today when the pipes under my house reached 41°, letting me know that we are in danger of having the pipes freeze, causing potential damage to the plumbing. Once I receive the alert, I was able to contact a nearby friend to go check on the house in the 5°F Outside temperature, and found that the pipe heater GFCI circuit had tripped and caused the pipe heaters to stop working. A quick reset and our very generous friend has helped save us $1000s of dollars of damage to the property that we might not have even known about for another week otherwise. Sensors like freeze or leak sensors, when used with a good security camera system, can help keep you fully appraised of the condition of your vacation property, so you can always know what is happening, and alleviate unnecessary worry.
