How Fast Internet Can Boost Your Security

fast internet benefits security

Fast Internet provided by fiber-optic connections can keep your security system functional and reliable.

Your home or business security system likely uses a lot of high-tech equipment. This equipment can include keycards with encryption and access restrictions, alarm systems that utilize motion control or glass-shatter sensors, and surveillance cameras that capture HD footage and transmit information wirelessly. These systems effectively keep out intruders and record any potential threats, but they have one possible weak spot. If you don’t have a reliable and fast Internet connection with plenty of bandwidth, your security system may not be running optimally. A gigabit fiber connection can provide you with the ultimate fast Internet service that you need for both security and everyday use of your devices. Fast Internet can boost your security in the following crucial ways. 

Wireless Transmission to Cloud Servers

Security cameras that transmit wirelessly are great for providing flexible security and discreet security systems. However, these cameras will need to use your home or business’s Wi-Fi signal to send the camera footage to your recording setup or directly to your cloud server. Fast Internet will help this footage transmit quickly and without issues. 

If your business uses keycard scanners, they will require fast Internet to swiftly check with a central database to identify the card’s credentials and permissions. If you have a key card system that runs slowly, you aren’t fully benefiting from the technology the keycards offer. 

Bandwidth for HD Video Storage 

Video surveillance recording requires a lot of bandwidth since each camera is streaming HD videos to your security hub when they are turned on. This is why some people connect cameras to motion sensors that only turn on when motion is detected. However, this can be quite annoying if wildlife or regular pedestrians activate the security cameras frequently. 

The fast Internet connection can allow you to use round-the-clock security while having enough bandwidth left to communicate with remote workers, download and upload files, and anything else you may need your online connection for. 

Dedicated Fast Internet

When you use a fast, fiber-optic connection for your home or business network, you benefit from a dedicated and reliable connection. When you have a dedicated fiber connection, you don’t need to share bandwidth with your neighbors, and you can make an easy upgrade in the future if new technology develops. Best of all, you can rest assured that your security system won’t slow down or drop video frames from surveillance during peak use hours. You can benefit from your security system without interrupting or changing your everyday Internet use.
