10C, in some implementations, the doorbell camera 106 includes a voltage monitoring unit 1022 configured to generate the supply monitoring signal based on the input AC voltage. The LED indicator of the doorbell camera 106 is configured to, based on a value of the supply monitoring signal, display on a surface of the device housing 702 one of a set of predetermined visual patterns, thereby sending a visual message to a user of the doorbell camera 106 to indicate whether the input AC voltage is low with respect to the supply threshold. For example, the supply threshold may be 8V. When the input AC voltage is greater than 8V, the supply monitoring signal may control the LED indicator to display a green color along the peripheral edge 1040 of the doorbell button 1002, indicating that the input AC voltage is sufficient to drive the doorbell camera 106. In contrast, when the input AC voltage is not greater than 8V, the supply monitoring signal may control the LED indicator to display a red color along the peripheral edge 1040 of the doorbell button 1002, indicating that the input AC voltage is insufficient to drive the doorbell camera 106. Referring to FIG. 10D, in some implementations, the bypass unit 1012 may also function as a voltage meter to determine whether the transformer 1010 can provide a supply voltage sufficient to drive the doorbell camera 106 which normally consumes more power than a conventional doorbell. The bypass unit 1012 includes a voltage monitoring unit 1012A, an LED indicator 1012B, and bypass circuit 1012C. The supply monitoring signal is generated by the voltage monitoring unit 1012A of the bypass unit 1012, and the LED indicator 1012B is located in the bypass unit 1012. The LED indicator 1012B sends a visual message to the user to indicate whether the input AC voltage is low with respect to the supply threshold. Likewise, in some implementations, the remote chime 1006 may be configured to ring differently based on the supply monitoring signal, thereby indicating whether the input AC voltage is sufficient to drive the doorbell camera 106.

In banks and government buildings, indoor security is equally as important. In banks the cameras protect the assets of the institution, but they also protect the customers and employees. They keep an excellent and constant record of everything that goes on, a record that could be incredibly valuable. In government buildings the threat of crime and terrorism is combated with indoor security cameras and other measures. The cameras there are often not discrete they are meant to be seen and taken note of at all times. In both case, having indoor security cameras protecting the employees and visitors have stopped and solved countless actual and would be crimes.

Installing security camera requires proper wiring and should use quality cable to prevent video degradation. Indeed, installing security cameras offers many benefits particularly protecting individuals and business properties. Using alarm security system is not enough to keep you safe and secured. That is why adding security camera or video camera can give you peace of mind. This can be used both indoor and outdoor. The security camera can monitor the activities and happenings at your business or even you are far from home. You can monitor it as long as there is internet connection. The good thing is that you cannot only see the actual happenings but also allows reviewing prior recordings. It is a very wise precaution to invest in security camera to prevent the threat of home invasion and crime. Working parents prefer installing security camera at home so that they can monitor their children even if they are working. Through the built in microphone, you cannot only see your children but also hear them.
