Questions we are often asked ...
can I see mY cameras from my phone and my computer?Yes, you can see your camera feeds from your phone or computer with all Atlas Security installed camera systems.
wHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CAMERAS YOU PROVIDE AND CAMERAS I CAN BUY AT COSTCO OR ON THE INTERNET?The difference in build quality of the cameras and their dependability in Central Oregon weather conditions. Most people don't understand how extreme our climate is when it comes to video surveillance.
what is the benefit of IP (web-based) cameras?These cameras allow for better imaging and control of recorded video data. The prices have come down to the point on IP equipment where it is not a big saving to install analog systems.
DO WIRELESS CAMERAS NEED POWER?Yes, all cameras require power of some kind to operate.
WHAT WIRES DO I NEED TO RUN FOR CAMERAS?Wiring can be tricky if a person is not trained properly. In-ground wiring requires different product than above-ground. Commercial wiring is different than residential. Ask the experts when it comes to running wire.
how much is it going to cost and what is included?The price of the system needed is dictated by a number of factors including the labor to install, image quality, and the length of time needed for recorded video footage.

is there a warranty on the equipment?Yes, typically there is a three-year warranty.
