Most of us have never really had to think much about video security. We often ignore the cameras at our work and where we shop. We glance briefly at a box store camera screen to catch a glimpse of ourselves on the monitor. Beyond that, we really don’t think too much about it.
In fact, most people don’t realize they need a video security system until something bad happens – which is the worst time to think about security. The damage is already done, and now you are dealing with insurance, repairs, and replacing your missing items.
There are 2 kinds of people who think about security a lot. The first kind are people who know they need it. The people who know they need it are not in a good situation or something has already happened that makes them think about how knowing what is going on when they are not around is probably a good thing.
The second is people who do it for a living. What we who do it for a living see too often is someone who has never had to think about video security before now scrambling to to figure out systems, options, and then having it installed. The end result is haphazardly piece-mealed together and often ineffective.
The other problem is that the people who really need it often can’t afford it and can’t install it. A system costing less than $1000 is a very cheap system in the security world, but is often out of reach for many people and often the price doesn’t include installation.
This is where Gigastrand NVR comes in. For as little as $50, you can buy the Gigastrand OS and the Gigastrand NVR software. That price even includes installation! We can remotely set it up on an old PC or laptop with a webcam and instantly you have a fully supported single camera NVR you can view from anywhere in the world with your PC, smartphone, or tablet.
If you need something a little more robust, you can pick up just about any Network camera and connect it to the NVR. Network cameras start at about $50 and you will soon be able to pick up a brand new system for $448 with a free starter camera, 30 days of support, and a Lifetime hardware warranty. Pre-orders will be available this weekend from the Gigastrand Store.
So, the Gigastrand NVR is probably the simplest and most affordable solution by making security possible for everyone.
