Be in the Know with Surveillance Cameras
Surveillance cameras are one of the most effective tools you can use to ensure a greater level of protection for your home and property. Not too long ago, this type of security equipment was too expensive to be accessible to the average homeowner, but thanks to advances in video recording technology, it’s easier now more than ever to outfit your home with a high-quality video surveillance system without spending an arm and a leg to do it. If you’ve been thinking about installing surveillance cameras in your home, below are 4 reasons why doing so would be a good idea.
1. Monitoring Capabilities
You can monitor the interior and exterior of your home – including detached property such as a garage, shed, pool, workshop, etc. – when you have security cameras installed in strategic places. This is useful not only for extreme situations such as a break-in, but even more so for the regular routines of everyday life. For example, you can keep tabs on the kids (or perhaps an aging parent) whenever you’re not home, or you can make sure that the babysitter you hired is up to snuff. You can also see what type of interesting situations your furry four-legged friends might be getting into whenever you’re not around.
The BeHome247 Wireless Security Camera Package enables you to control your surveillance cameras remotely through your smartphone, tablet or laptop, allowing you to view a live video stream of your property or a recorded video from earlier points in time. And it’s not some garbled, blurry-looking footage, either; the cameras that come with the BeHome247 package will deliver crisp high-definition video that’s smooth and easy to view.
2. Assisting Police
In the event that your cameras catch someone snooping around (or breaking into) your property, you can provide the video footage to police to help them identify a suspect. This footage can serve as evidence for police reports (and in court), and in some cases it can be used along with facial recognition software to hunt down the thief. In addition, insurance companies often use surveillance camera footage when assessing claims, or to prove ownership of stolen property.
3. Saving Money on Homeowners Insurance
Home insurance providers love surveillance cameras, and they will often offer significant discounts on your monthly premiums when you have a video monitoring system installed in your home.
4. Visual Deterrent
Home security cameras are valuable not only for the footage they can provide but also as a visual deterrent. If a would-be thief tries to sneak onto your property, they’re going to think twice about attempting a break-in if they see a security camera installed on the exterior of your home. Simply put, the less reason you give a potential criminal to think that they can get away with breaking in, the more secure your home will be.
It is an unfortunate fact that we’re living in a dangerous world, but thankfully there are some things you can do to help keep your family and your property safe. Consider adding surveillance cameras to your home, so that you can enjoy a greater level of protection and peace of mind.
