How Security Cameras with Alarms Work
The IP security camera with alarm function is a PIR (Passive Infrared) motion sensor camera, which passively receives and detects infrared radiation from the surrounding environment.When the differences of radiation are identified, alarms ensue.
As PIR sensors are more sensitive to infrared radiations from humans or animals, PIR security cameras with remote alarms can dramatically reduce false alarms caused by fluttering moths or flying twigs, and catch what you really care about.
Take the PIR humanoid detection security solar camera LS-WS12 with alarm function as an example. The LS-WS12 camera is installed at the door of your home. It detects that the child is coming home from school and will immediately push a notification to your mobile phone.
What the Common Alert Options of Security Cameras with Alarms Are?
In general, when motion is detected, outdoor and indoor security cameras with alarms can inform you through push notifications in App, emails attached with snapshots or videos and texts. And then you can replay video clips in App to check the actual circumstance.
Besides these alert options, some high-end wired and wireless security cameras are equipped with audible alarms (siren) or especially customized voice-recordable alerts.
The built-in ear-splitting siren of security cameras with an alarm system will sound automatically until the burglar leaves your home, which would definitely induce vigilance from neighbors or the police.
In fact, with wired or wireless security cameras with audio alarms, you can totally get hold of your home by yourself for free – after receiving motion alarms, checking the exact situation by motion event replay and taking actions.
