  • Security/Surveillance Cameras and other Protections

    Does anyone have a recommendation for or warnings against products/companies that make small office wireless security systems. I'm envisioning a couple of cameras (front/back entrances to office), image storage can be on the office server (plenty of space,if you can record over images daily/weekly), or cloud-hosted? Also considering an electronically controlled office door, one where you can buzz a visitor/client into the office.

    I use nest cameras at my house. They work pretty good if you don't want to pull a bunch of wires. We have a Swann 8 channel at my office. It was a little harder to install because it's a wired system, but I like it better since there is no subscription for the cloud service. You can download the Swann app and watch remotely. I think my Swann system dvd stores around a week of footage if we set it to save when it senses movement

      We're in an office building with other offices on our floor, so 2 cameras (both doors) should be plenty. Can you scale your Swann system up/down, or does it come with a pre-determined number of cameras?

        You buy the DVD part based on how many cameras you want. 4 channel will control up to 4 cameras, 8 channel will control up to 8 cameras, etc. The basic setup is really easy. I don't know anything about the advanced features like email alerts.

            Was listening to the Clark Howard show the other day and he was pushing these, wonder if they're any good, only $20.

                    Did you ever figure out who took your stuff a few months ago?

                      They found the truck that was used but not the people. The truck was stolen from somewhere in Mississippi. The same group has stolen a lot of ATV's and trailers.

                        That sucks, buddy. Did the insurance come through?

                          A bunch of wealth redistributing liberals would be my guess.

                              We have Arlo Plus at home. They are wireless and upload to the cloud. I get alerts on my phone w movement and can check out the video or watch it live. Batteries last a long time and are rechargeable.
                              We got them at Best Buy. Sam's has Arlo but the reviews were better for Arlo plus so we went w those.
