The Motorola FOCUS85-B is a remote monitoring camera that can use your existing internet or WiFi and any compatible computer devices and create a professional monitoring and security system.
Previously, you needed to employ the services of a security firm in order to mount and install a stand alone security camera system. The problem with a security system was that it was only secure when someone was physically monitoring the monitoring system. In other words, unless you could afford to pay for full time security services, including a full time security guard, the monitoring system was next to useless.
Even the old fashioned recording systems used to be totally labor intensive with hours and hours of recorded data, and no accurate way of determining what, if anything had happened.
With the latest technology Motorola devices, you can opt to receive a motion triggered message direct to your mobile phone, and if you wish to look more closely, you can do so completely wirelessly. There is no longer any need to employ professional security services, as you can perform all the surveillance you need via you own mobile phone.
Better still, you can adjust the pan, tilt and zoom in order to manage your own surveillance. You can nominate a recording of the security footage be recorded automatically, and you can decide what action, if nay that needs to be taken to secure your property.
