Motion-activated security cameras are an elegant solution to achieve comprehensive security coverage of your property without a full security staff. These cameras only record when there’s something to see, and can even send smartphone push notifications to you or anyone responsible for the property. Because you can also view live footage, you’ll have instant updates and visibility on any potential security threats.

Here we’ll cover the features of these security cameras, how they work, and why you should consider installing them on your property.

Understanding Security Cameras With Motion Detection

Motion-activated surveillance cameras are designed to only record footage when there is movement in the area being monitored. This means that you don't have to worry about having a constantly running camera that could end up wasting storage space or costing you more in electricity bills. And since they only record when something is happening, motion-activated security cameras can be a great way to keep an eye on things without having to monitor the camera all day.

How Motion-Activated Security Cameras Work

There are a few different types of motion-activated cameras available on the market. The most common type is the PIR (passive infrared) sensor camera. These cameras use an infrared motion detector to sense movement in a given area. When motion is detected, the camera will start recording video or taking pictures.

Another type of motion-activated security camera uses motion detection software to detect motion. The motion is then compared against a database of known movements, and if the movement is determined to be suspicious, an alert will be sent out via email or text message.

The latest motion-activated security cameras use facial-recognition software and other advanced detection features to detect motion. These cameras can tell the difference between a person and an animal, and will only send out an alert if it detects a human. You can also specify different detection zones so that your motion detector camera can only focus on movement in certain areas.

No matter what type of motion-activated security camera you choose, it's important to make sure that the area being monitored is well lit. If the area is too dark, the camera may not be able to detect motion.
