Is Video Surveillance Good Home Security?

Posted in Uncategorized by admin on March 28th, 2013

Protecting your home has never been more important than now – especially in this economy. And, I’m sure, if you have already done a search online about it, you’ve come across tons of sites and services like to name one example. Since this is a video and photography blog, however, we thought we’d talk about another form of home security – video surveillance.

When you think of video surveillance, you probably think of those cameras you see in the bank or the ones watching you park your car at a Wal-mart. In most cases, these cameras feed directly to a monitoring station where an operative observes the footage in real-time and acts accordingly if need be. However, you need to make sure that’s what you’re getting if that is how you choose to protect your home.

Other forms of video surveillance are more passive simply documenting and recording what is being observed. This can come in handy in the case of trials or criminal proceedings but it doesn’t do much for you or your situation when trouble does strike at the home. That’s why, if you choose to go that route, you make sure you know just what your service entails – active or passive.

Video Blogging: The New Scrap Booking Fad

Posted in Uncategorized by on November 21st, 2012

From sci-fi fantasy to full-blown fad, video blogging is the new scrapbooking. Though it hit the digital scene several years back, it was then a cumbersome process requiring high-tech equipment, editing software and a good bit of human know-how. The rise of video cameras with wireless capabilities has changed all of that. More and more people are recording their lives and uploading them directly to the Internet on the go.

A video blog replaces the customary type-written, audio and/or still pictures of the traditional web log. In the past, this form of media was primarily a tool of businesses. Yet, as digital video technology has evolved, today’s typical users are individuals who post video clips to a host site open to a closed audience of family and friends or to the broader audience on the World Wide Web.

Vlogging is a simple, fast way to permanently record travels, major events, daily activities and more. Like an animated scrapbook, it’s easy to relive the memories later by scrolling back through the video posts. Some children will grow up to find that their entire lives from the womb to the wedding are a click away on the Internet and viewable in 30-second to 5-minute snippets.

The new age in video blogging has begun, and everybody is doing it. Are you?
