An indoor camera system isn’t just an investment in a piece of technology, it’s an investment in your home and family’s safety. With crime rates in the UK increasing the need to take home security into your own hands is becoming ever clearer. But this isn’t the only reason to buy an indoor camera. While indoor security cameras have their security applications, they also come in handy for a whole other range of uses. Monitoring vulnerable family members, keeping an eye on a mischievous pet or simply catching some unexpected events. We’re going to take a look at the 6 ways an indoor camera can benefit your home.
Indoor cameras for home security
Arguably the most important use for an indoor camera is to give you that peace of mind that your home is secure. We can all get anxious when we’re away from home that our valuables are left unprotected. A security camera provides you with that level of assurance that you can always keep an eye on what is happening at home. Some indoor cameras come with a range of built-in features that significantly improve your home security. For example our Time2 Olivia and Sophia both include 2-way-audio so you can communicate with any unwanted guests without putting yourself in harm’s way.
In the event that your property is broken into, having a security camera recording the whole thing can be vital. It could be the difference between the perpetrator getting caught and prosecuted or never being identified at all. Subsequently, owning an indoor camera system isn’t just beneficial for you. It could also help to lower crime rates in your community. If we all had them, we stand a better chance of identifying criminals and bringing them to justice.
Keep an eye on vulnerable loved ones and mischievous pets
Life can be busy. We can’t always make as much time to spend with vulnerable or elderly relatives as we’d like to. This is where buying an indoor camera for your or their home can prove vital. If you buy a camera that’s compatible with its own app in which you can view live and recorded footage, it can put your mind at ease to know that Grandma is safe and well watching her favourite daytime TV.
On the other hand, some of us have those furry friends who get up to no good. Indoor cameras would be great for your home. Anyone who has or had a pet knows they can get into some situations. Whether it’s getting into the rubbish, destroying furniture or hiding your favourite slippers. You can keep an eye on what they’re up to all day. You won’t have to worry about those patience-testing times when you get home after a long day.

Create a smart home
Indoor security cameras can be a valuable tool to help you in creating a smart home. With the emergence of more and more smart home technology creating a home that’s automated, efficient and convenient is as easy as ever. Some people wonder; why do cameras have WiFi? Well, Wireless indoor security cameras make use of a router’s WiFi functionality meaning they can stay connected to the internet completely wire-free. One advantage of this is that you won’t be restricted with where you need to place your indoor camera. You can have the freedom to build a full indoor camera system without the need to feed wires to your internet router.
Furthermore, you’ll also be able to create smart automation between your cameras and other smart home devices in your home. For example, maybe you’d like a light to switch on whenever a camera detects movement. Depending on how creative you are you can make some home automation to make your life a little bit easier.
