It is now easier than ever to keep an eye on your home while you are away. Thanks to recent advances in mobile technology, it is possible to install a home surveillance system that allows you to view a camera feed, directly on your mobile phone.
Most new laptops come with a webcam already pre-installed. If this is the case for you then you will not need any additional hardware to get started. You can simply point your laptop at the area you wish to monitor. Using the software that is suggested in the guide you can then access your webcam stream on your web capable mobile phone. It only takes a few minutes to get things up and running and even novice computer users can complete the process with ease.
If you have an external webcam then you get the added benefit of being able to discreetly place the camera wherever you choose. This can be helpful if you want to keep an eye on your children after they come home from school. Or perhaps you employ a nanny or caregiver to watch the kids while you are at work. Your cell phone surveillance system can be used to check in on the quality of care that is being provided. If you have a spouse that you suspect of cheating then your surveillance system can be used to catch them in the act. Wonder if the neighborhood children are fooling around in your yard? Then you can install a home surveillance system so that the camera is pointing out the window.
Video surveillance systems were originally designed to offer the ultimate in security for banks, airports and casinos and now they are available to consumers. In the United States, the FBI has calculated that a burglary occurs every 8 seconds and that three out of four homes will be burglarized within the next 20 years. There's no reason to wait until it happens to you. If you live in a high crime area then you might want to use the system to monitor your house for break-ins and burglars.
The possibilities for a cell phone surveillance system are virtually endless and the convenience of being able to remotely monitor from your cell phone is remarkable. You will truly wonder how you ever got by without it.
