    "This is the best indoor home security camera that I've tried so far! The video and sound quality and the night vision is really impressive but the built-in siren is probably its best feature"

    "My work involves a lot of outdoor activities so home security is really one of my concerns. I bought 3 of these Vimtag cams and placed it on key parts of my home (front gate, living room, and kitchen). This helps a lot with me overthinking about burglars "

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know the CCTV camera, which stands for Closed Circuit Television, is first used in Germany in 1942? The first camera is not actually used for security purposes. Because German scientists developed it to observe the launching of V2 rockets. It was not publicly used until 1962 when cameras were installed in New York to discourage crime. Later on, banks and retail stores started to use security cameras to prevent robbery and theft. Moreover, video home security system is starting to be widely used, as home automation technology spreads. It comes as the cost of home security systems fell drastically, making it an affordable and cheap choice. Although, before people used to consider it as some sort of a luxury. That isn't the case anymore as the technology continues to evolve and mature.

Today, the most widespread use of CCTV technology is for security surveillance purposes. No doubt, you have seen them in the ceilings or walls at your workplace, banks, and many more establishments. Moreover, having a home security system is now essential. With a property crime occurring every 3.7 seconds, it's important to have a home security system. Of course, there are different options on the market for these home security systems. There are wireless home security cameras to outdoor home security cameras to choose. But, you have to be aware that there are certain laws restricting the use of security cameras. These laws ensure the privacy of any individual is not breached.

    "I'm a working mom so I had to leave my son most of the time under the care of his nanny. It's not that I don't trust the nanny but I really feel more secure if I can check on them time to time and see how she's taking care of my child. This cam also has audio so I can hear them and they can hear me through the partner app"
