3 Standout Features of Luma Surveillance for Your Home

Feel More Confident about Choosing the Right Surveillance System for Your Needs

What’s the best surveillance camera system for home security? The answer isn’t so simple. The solution you choose depends greatly on your needs and how you plan to use it. Even our security professionals at AVWORX install a variety of surveillance systems to fit the unique needs of our Layton, UT customers.

We’re not here to tell you that there’s only one “right” surveillance camera system. But we do know that opting for an inexpensive DIY solution from popular brands like Nest and Ring may leave you open to security limitations that may cause frustration and potential breaches down the line.

Instead, a professionally installed camera system like Luma Surveillance ensures high-quality video, safe and reliable storage capabilities, and seamless integration with your growing smart home—at a reasonable price point, too. Learn the standout features of Luma below.

8MP 4K Surveillance

If you’ve been shopping around for security cameras, you’ve probably noticed 2MP, 4MP, or even 8MP listed on the box. MP stands for megapixel, or one million pixels, which refers to the camera’s resolution. 2MP is two million pixels, 4MP is four million pixels, and so on. The higher the pixel count, the better the camera resolution.

While most popular security cameras feature a 2MP image sensor (or 1080P resolution), Luma Surveillance recently released its 710 Series outdoor cameras that feature 8MP 4K resolution. Larger camera sensors capture more light, which improves color, contrast, low-light performance, and overall picture quality. The high-pixel density also allows for clearer digital zoom when detecting details like license plate numbers or facial features.

Plus, high-resolution surveillance cameras from Luma don’t result in an overloaded network or require costly storage fees that homeowners would be subject to if they chose high-resolution cameras from Ring or Nest down the line. We dive more into this below.

Secured Local Storage

Ring and Nest systems store your surveillance footage in the cloud where you can review it or download it to save to your device. However, to view any recorded surveillance footage, you must purchase a separate subscription plan.

You may not want your data on the cloud, and we understand that. Safety and security come first, which is why Luma Surveillance uses reliable hard drives to locally store footage within your smart home. This solution allows for improved viewing quality that won’t hog your bandwidth.

Access your video anytime, anywhere, from an intuitive and streamlined user interface across your smart devices. Easily pause, rewind, fast forward, or take a snapshot with just a button click on your desktop, tablet, or mobile phone.

Seamless Smart Home Integration

Many DIY home surveillance cameras are standalone solutions, which means they work independently from other smart technology solutions in your home. Integrating your Nest or Ring security cameras to work smoothly with a comprehensive smart home system isn’t an easy task to do on your own.

Luma Surveillance cameras easily integrate with leading smart home automation systems like Control4, so you can command everything from lights to home audio to your home security system and more from the same platform. And because Luma Surveillance is always installed by a professional, you can rest confidently that you’re receiving a robust and reliable solution that trumps the uncertainty of DIY.
