Indoor home security cameras: how should you choose the best video cameras for your home?

Indoor home security cameras are one of the best methods for preventing break-ins at your home, keeping your family, the property and its contents safe. Choose the best indoor security camera model for your home and you’ll be able to keep a close eye on movements around your property.

Home security cameras? Definite yes. Compromising your family’s own privacy? Definite no.

Installing home security cameras doesn’t mean you need to compromise your family’s own privacy.

Netatmo has a couple of tips for protecting personal privacy with indoor home security cameras:

Make sure you choose secure video storage options

Secure cloud storage with regular deletion phases could be a sensible option for your home

Invest in facial recognition features for your home security cameras

This facial recognition technology will automatically deactivate recording of recognised family members, meaning only strangers or intruders will be picked up by your indoor security cameras

If you employ people to work in your home, you’ll need to inform them that they might be recorded by your indoor security cameras. This is a legal obligation for home owners who install indoor security camera systems, in line with current data protection regulations.

Be alerted immediately if an intruder breaks into your home. The Netatmo Smart Indoor Camera is the only smart camera that can recognise faces and gives you access to all its features without charging any subscription fees.

Indoor home security cameras: reliable video recording, any time of day

The video footage from your indoor security cameras could provide vital information if there’s a break-in or incident at your home.

Whether you need to hand the video footage over to the police or to your home insurance company, your home security cameras could provide the key images you need to back up your criminal or insurance claim.

Talking home insurance, it’s worth checking the small print of your insurance policy to make sure that your new indoor home security cameras will meet the established prerequisites.

If your home security measures don’t meet the standards required by your home insurance policy, any claims you make on this policy may be deemed invalid.

If you’re installing a new home security camera system, you’ll want to make sure it’s as effective as possible – spend that home security budget wisely!

So, Netatmo has put together a few additional features that you might want to bear in mind while you’re browsing home security cameras:

Wide-angle video camera vision
Make sure that your video cameras have a scope large enough to cover all the vulnerable or strategic locations around your home where you’ll want to record security footage

HD quality video images
Ensure the positioning and video quality of your indoor security cameras is good enough to provide clear security footage – you’ll want to make sure any video recordings from your security cameras provide effective evidence, should it be required

Night vision technology
You might want to integrate night vision technology into your new home security cameras, to make sure that you can optimise your home security round the clock – check out these additional night vision features, as well as how they function, before purchasing your new home security cameras

High quality audio recording
Audio security recordings can also work to effectively keep your home secure, as well as potentially providing vital evidence for the police or your home insurance provider in the event of a break-in

Know your budget: home security camera purchase and installation

It’s important to think about the installation process before you decide on your new indoor home security cameras.

Wired or wireless?

Wired security cameras are a more traditional option, but wireless home security cameras are a more flexible – and often cheaper – option.

Wireless home security cameras can often be installed far more easily, without the need for a professional installation contract. Why not give some DIY a go and install your own home security cameras?

What’s more, smart wireless cameras will often enable you to safely store your security video content via the Cloud.

A question of price

Obviously, your home security budget will significantly affect your choice of indoor security cameras.

The most basic security camera models won’t set you back too much, but additional features such as motion detection and facial recognition technology will increase the price tag on your new home security set-up.

Opting for a wireless system could be a smart way to start your indoor security camera installation, as it allows you to keep your budget flexible.

You’ll be able to add extra wireless indoor security video cameras to your set-up as and when your budget allows. Just make sure your home’s Internet connection is strong enough to keep the additional security cameras fully functional!

Make sure you always ask for a complete quote from your home security provider before going ahead with any indoor security camera installation. Make sure that the added extras - such as night vision or motion detection technology and secure Cloud video storage - don’t add up to extra hidden payments!
