Everyone wants to keep their home and family safe. Burglaries can cause an impact that lasts much longer than the event itself. From the total invasion of privacy to the seemingly endless hassle with insurance companies, the consequences of a burglary highlight the importance of an appropriately secured property. No matter where you live, a home security system is something you can’t afford to live without.
What’s Best for You?
There are so many security systems on the market these days, a popular choice for many homes is a moderately priced CCTV doorbell option. They are easy to install, reliable, and have been proven to be effective when it comes to deterring unwanted visitors.
A professionally installed full home CCTV system is a great option to consider if you are away from home regularly, or for long periods.
How Much Do Security Cameras does it cost?
Keeping your home safe doesn’t have to cost a lot, there are many budget-friendly packages that can be purchased, many of which have options to upgrade over time. Home security should be tailored to your home, so it’s always best to get a quote for your specific requirements, rather than by a system off the shelf.
Are security cameras effective?
84% of burglars will avoid houses that have visible alarm systems, even if the alarm doesn’t actually work. Houses that have cameras positioned in areas that are not easy to reach are considered to be safest, as they are difficult to tamper with. Up until fairly recently, it was widely thought that dogs were a stronger deterrent than alarms, however, due to a huge rise in dog thefts across England, CCTV is now back on top as the best way to keep your family, your belongings, and your home, safe.
You should absolutely not hide the fact that you are recording anyone who may stumble upon your doorstep. To increase visibility, you may also want to consider outdoor lighting, in particular, motion-activated lighting. This allows criminals to make the decision before entering a home, and in most cases will persuade them to move along. Lighting also improves the quality of your CCTV footage, making it easy to identify the perpetrator.
When you are researching the best security system for your needs, it may be beneficial and more cost-effective to have indoor cameras installed at the same time. One of the most shocking percentages you may ever come across is that 64% of burglaries happen when someone is home. Burglars are opportunists, they don’t just strike under the cover of darkness.
Taking simple measures like locking the front door whilst you are in the back garden can lower your chances of becoming a victim to theft, and having that added peace of mind that you have a camera in your home is priceless. Indoor CCTV is an absolute must if you are inviting tradespeople of any kind into your home. The day of the hidden camera is over, make your security systems visible. Prevention is key, and visible CCTV has been effectively proven to deter crime.
