Staying alert is very important, and security camera systems allow us to stay informed with up-to-date information and clips. Security camera systems are most effective under supervision, but what will you do when there's no supervision and you are out of town?

When push notifications are enabled, users of cameras won't have to worry about supervision as the feature sends immediate notifications to the user's email id or mobile number when suspicious activity is detected, like irregular motion detection or activity that disobeys the pre-set restrictions. Users can use apps for live viewing and navigations, but most importantly, the push notification must be enabled.
