THE BENEFITS OF HOME SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS
Easy to Install – Modern home surveillance systems using IP wireless home security cameras are easy to install. Unlike analog CCTV cameras that require coaxial cable and power tools, all you have to do is mount the cameras and go.
Versatile – Because they don't require complicated wiring or lengthy installations, home security camera systems with IP cameras can be rearranged at any time.
Remote monitoring – Home surveillance systems that use an NVR (network video recorder) allow you to broadcast your footage over the internet and check up on your house at anytime, even when you're on vacation.
Prevent theft – Visible home surveillance cameras can discourage potential thieves from breaking and entering, and can help you identify criminals who break into your home.
RISKS OF HOME SECURITY CAMERA SYSTEMS
Theft - Surveillance cameras can be an attractive target for a thief, and a stolen camera can cause interruptions in recording and leave your home open to further theft or vandalism.
Loss of power - Power surges or blackouts can damage your security camera system or cause interruptions in your recording. In case of a system failure, be sure to have an alternative security system in place to protect your family and property.
Damages - Outdoor security cameras can be damaged by storms or windgusts, and cause damage or interruptions in your surveillance system.
Questions to Consider When Choosing a Residential Security System
Your home surveillance needs depend on many different factors. Consider each of the following when purchasing and setting up your security camera system:
- What makes your home susceptible to break-in or theft?
- What do you consider your biggest security threat?
- Do you feel that your neighborhood contributes to your overall security?
- Have you ever had problems with theft or break-ins?
Setup Advice for Home security cameras
- If you have valuables displayed in open areas (e.g. rugs, antiques, trophies), consider installing a fixed security camera to monitor them at all times.
- Mount surveillance cameras near doors in order to record everyone who enters and exits your house. In the event of the robbery, a clear picture of the thief entering and leaving your house is one of the best ways to identify them.
- If your home is situated on a large lot, or if you have multiple structures (a barn, a poolhouse, a guesthouse, a shed, an external garage), place security cameras around your perimeter or in the other buildings on your property. The ability to identify a prowler or potential thief before a break-in gives you the power to act quickly and defend your home.
