At Forest Security, our number 1 objective is to protect our clients. That’s why we recommend leaving nothing to chance by having the best and most comprehensive home security system available. In order to get you there, we recommend installing video monitoring systems either inside your home, outside or both.

With video monitoring for your home the benefits extend far past the piece of mind that it brings. Don’t get us wrong, you’ll rest easy knowing that you and your family are safe and your home is secure regardless of where you are. Having a comprehensive home security system truly allows you to live in the moment. One of the best parts about Forest Security’s video monitoring systems is that all of our options include integrated Smartphone technology. This allows you to monitor your home at all hours of the day, every day of the year, anywhere in the world. Whether your making a quick trip to the grocery store or planning a two-week long family vacation, video monitoring keeps you up to date with what’s happening at home.

Another great reason to add video monitoring to your home is for those “just in case” moments. While Forest Security’s home system can help deter burglaries, there is always the risk of an attempted break in. Whether they make it inside your home or not, having a video monitoring system will help. The burglar will be caught on camera and with Forest Security’s devices, the high quality picture can help lead to an arrest. Since police need high quality images in order to catch the perpetrator, it’s a great investment. Blurry, or low-quality images make it a lengthy, more difficult process. Make an investment on your safety today by opting to install Forest Security’s high-quality video monitoring system.

Video Monitoring Systems

The video monitoring systems that we have at Forest Security allow you to see what’s happening both inside and outside of your home at all times. You can seamlessly and easily integrate video access into your security alarm system or use it as a stand-alone monitoring system.

All of the cameras at Forest Security are Internet Protocol (IP) cameras. What this means is that the cameras can send, and receive, video data through the Internet on your computer’s network. A lot of people compare this type of camera to a webcam, but IP cameras (or netcams) are specifically used for surveillance purposes. At Forest Security, we offer video recording for local, cloud or remote access along with analytics of the premises. Additionally, our video monitoring systems will give you insight on how to improve security of your home. All of our systems are hardwired with wires that are in conduit, giving you security that can’t be disarmed. Additionally, Forest Security’s residential video monitoring systems include alarm and motion-triggered recordings for both indoor and outdoor options. Check out our cameras below.

Indoor Video Monitoring

Our indoor cameras come in two different styles: Fixed Lens and 180° Enhanced Zoom. Depending on you and your family’s needs, either one or the other may be purchased. For full video monitoring access, we recommend purchasing a mixture of the two. This is because the main difference between the two options is the field of view that the cameras offer. When you have fixed lens only, you may have some blind spots in certain rooms of your home. Read on for more on each of Forest Security’s indoor cameras.

  • IP Fixed Lens – A fixed lens camera is a type of camera that has it’s settings permanently pre-set in a specific focal length and direction. The homeowner can’t adjust these types of cameras once they’ve been set, so you’ll want to make sure to discuss your specific needs in advanced with Forest Security. This way, the field of view can be pre-determined and installed depending on if you want a wide or narrow angle view.
  • 180° HD Camera with Enhanced Zoom and Two-Way AudioThis wide-angle camera, designed for residential video monitoring, sets itself apart through forward-looking features and a clean modern design. Covering a full 180° view, users can monitor large areas without having to purchase multiple cameras. With a simple button push on top of the camera, a user can initiate a video and Two-Way Audio call with the Forest Security app.
