• 5 Reasons to Install a Surveillance System

    With the advancement of the technology and the reducing prices of cameras and other electronic devices, home surveillance systems have become a common household option. It was just a decade back that such a system was a high tech luxury to a multi-millionaire’s mansion.

    On the other hand, when crime is on the rise, no one wishes to be left out of any possible protection. People may choose home surveillance systems for many reasons. Here are five of the top reasons for you to have one for your own house.

    1- Feel safe

    Most people are afraid of being robbed. It may not be a phobia (such as Harpaxophobia- Fear of being robbed or Scelerophibia- Fear of bad men, burglars) but once in awhile you may also wake up in the middle of the night from a sudden noise. Then you will find it hard to go to sleep without checking every door and window. A home surveillance system will be the perfect answer to such worries. With such a system installed, you may visualize the front door, back door and any other possible entry points from the comfort of your bedroom.

    2- Discourage potential burglars

    If you can install a surveillance system with visible cameras, burglars may very well move on in search of other targets. In fact, some people use dummy cameras in hopes of fooling the inexperienced thief.

    3- As court evidence

    Most of the time, people get robbed but the burglars leave no trace behind. With a remote home surveillance system you could produce recorded video file of the burglars. The law enforcement agencies may also be able to trace the perpetrators using your video. A remote recording system is used to record at another location so the video cannot be destroyed onsite.

    4- Nanny cameras

    Some parents can never feel fully assured of their child's safety unless they have a direct view of the child at all times. Nanny cameras may be the answer for these anxious parents. They can be installed in the child’s room to remotely monitor activities from a smartphone, tablet or laptop. 

    5- Stay informed

    Other than the advantages given above, some people just want to stay informed of their surroundings at all times. If you feel the same then you may appreciate a surveillance system which, for example, shows who's walking through the gate or standing by the front door long before you approach. Advantages of a home surveillance system are many.
