5 Reasons to Switch to Color at Night Cameras
Home camera systems have made huge leaps forward over the last few years. Just think about all of the porch pirate videos we saw around the holidays from doorbell cameras. But that technological shift was slow to make it to the bigger home surveillance systems. However, this new generation of home surveillance is so much better than systems from the past, and we are going to share five reasons why.
Color at Night
One of the biggest advancements has been in the night vision for modern cameras. Gone are the days of pixelated, ghostly black-and-white images. A modern BRAVAS camera system can be designed with cameras that are so sensitive they still produce a color image at night, so you can see what is happening on your property day or night.

AI Smart Alerts
They won’t be able to write a mid-term for you like ChatGPT, but our modern surveillance systems can take advantage of AI technology to ensure you get meaningful alerts. Our systems can distinguish people, animals, and motor vehicles, so we can build you custom alerts that minimize false alarms and maximize value.
Modern security cameras also feature higher resolution and higher quality chips. This means that the images are sharper, so you can see far more detail. With more detail, you can more accurately identify what you are seeing, increasing confidence and security.
Ease of Use
Large-scale surveillance systems have allowed homeowners to have numerous cameras and to view them easily, but doing anything else, like reviewing footage of changing settings, has been pretty difficult. Our newest camera systems have updated apps that are far more intuitive, and the systems integrate better with our control systems, like Savant, Control4, Crestron, and Elan.
Many of the most popular camera manufacturers are no longer NDAA compliant, which essentially just means they are no longer allowed in government contracts due to security concerns regarding companies primarily based in China. While we have not seen any direct threats to our clients from these brands, we view NDAA compliance as a good idea for our clients, even when not required.
