One of the most common and effective forms of protecting your property is through the use of security cameras.
With the price of CCTV installations coming down in recent years, CCTV systems are now hugely popular for residential properties as an extremely effective burglar deterrent.
Here we will explain how having a CCTV system will help protect your property.
Crime statistics show that even just the presence of CCTV cameras at a home can help prevent a wide range of crimes. Homes with security cameras installed are much less likely to experience burglaries, vehicle vandalism and theft, and loitering or anti-social behaviour.
Modern security cameras feature the ability to view live video streams remotely via the internet, meaning you can view live footage on your phone, tablet and PC at any time, or any place, as long as you have an internet connection. So, if you are regularly at work or away from home you can still have the peace of mind that your property is fully protected.
CCTV systems can also provide push notifications to your phone using motion detection or line crossing detection. Meaning if an event is triggered you will receive a notification on your phone straight away.
Storage and Monitoring
Our CCTV systems are user friendly and it is very simple to retrieve and search for the exact video you need should a crime take place. They also come with hard drives that allow you to store hundreds of hours of footage, meaning that analysis of footage from a few days or weeks ago is possible. Our CCTV systems also come with infrared technology, giving you high quality images both day and night, keeping your property protected all year round.
Protecting your home or business isn’t as complicated or expensive as you may think, once the CCTV system has been installed, they require little reparations and will keep your premises secured for years. Many home insurance policies offer substantial discounts for homeowners who have had a CCTV camera security system installed on their property. This is because their capacity for deterring criminal activity will reduce the likelihood of you needing to make a claim in the first place.
In short, a security camera system installed by a professional CCTV engineer is a great security investment for your home, however, it is also important that you consider all aspects of your home security. Any security system is most effective when it is paired with a number of complementary systems. CCTV can assist with monitoring and crime deterrence, but it offers the most protection when used in conjunction with systems like a wireless intruder alarm.
