Security Cameras

Security cameras are used as part of both home security and business security systems in Hamilton and the Waikato.

Security Cameras for Homes in the Waikato

Security cameras are becoming a more common feature of home security alarm systems as the cost of the camera hardware is now at an affordable level for home owners.

Our security cameras are fixed mounted on internal and external locations and connect to a NVR (Network Video Recorder). The network video recorder supplies the power to the cameras and stores the video footage so it must be stored out of regular view or within a locked room or cupboard so that a burglar cannot access the system and stop or destroy the video footage. We recommend configuring the cloud option for offsite viewing as well.

The security camera installation method & position is a crucial factor to stopping vandalism. The Sterling Security installers are experts in mounting security cameras.

The security cameras are infrared and only send footage to the NVR when the camera sensor is activated thus limiting the amount of footage to store or review if an incident occurs.

If you have an internet connection in your home you can connect the NVR to your modem to enable remote viewing of the video footage to your phone, tablet or computer via a free app. Programming changes are required in some cases on the customers modem to enable this if the modem is quite old or the network has restrictive settigns.

Though not mandatory we normally recommend that security cameras are used in conjunction with the more regularly used features of a home security alarm system which include sensors, internal & external sirens and our Hamilton based alarm monitoring service. By using the security cameras as part of an integrated alarm system you increase the deterrent as well as improve the response if a burglary does occur.

If you have installed security cameras as part of your home security system and you use the Sterling Security monitoring service the security camera can be accessed by our alarm monitoring operators to verify alarm activation as they can check your live camera feeds and determine if a burglary is in progress and dispatch guards and police if appropriate. Police are often very busy and unlikely to attend a burglary quickly unless video footage confirms the burglar is still on site.
