Today’s home security systems aren’t like they were in the 80s or 90s. The technology of the time tends to blow our minds, but looking back, we hadn’t seen anything yet. Motion detection has been a technology used in home security for quite some time, but technology has advanced to be able to detect exactly what is moving. This way, consumers are able to preserve their monitor batteries. Too many time with motion detection, objects that do not warrant the system to be triggered, trigger the system. For instance, a cat will walk by and all the lights come on around the house. There could be a very windy day and leaves are being kicked up. If leaves brush past your monitoring system, the system is triggered and all the lights come on. Lights turning on and off impact your pocket book in the form of your electricity bill, battery purchases, and increase system wear and tear.
Pretty soon, people would get so tired of the lights going on and off, they’d shut the motion detection of completely, putting them in peril and wasting money on a system that should be fully functional for optimal protection. Systems can now detect what’s moving, compensate for weather, record to a backup server to preserve space and pause recording if nothing is happening to preserver memory and battery life. They are designed to be as convenient and reliable for consumers as possible, not sparing any expenses on leverage capable available technology.
