Video security systems are growing in popularity, allowing you to record what’s going on for times when you can’t keep an eye out and monitor the video feed through your computer or phone.
Here are five of the top benefits a video security system offers you and your family.
1.Watch Anytime and Anywhere: We can’t always be at home with our loved ones. Sometimes teens get home from school before we make it home from the office and beloved pets get left behind during the day. With a camera watching your home you can watch too. Check in with your pet through the day or log in just long enough to see that a child’s gotten home alright.
2.Video Evidence Holds Up In Court: It’s not a pleasant idea. You want the security system to keep intruders out, but if they get in you’ll have evidence that holds up in court and goes a long way to helping the police investigation. You’ll also have a recording of any damages or theft committed.
3. Saves Money on Insurance: Most home insurance companies offer a discount to people who have a home security system installed. What you save on insurance will more than cover the cost in the long run and a video surveillance system will help make future claims roll along easier.
4. Faster Communication with Authorities: If the authorities are needed a home security system makes that a lot easier. With the push of a button the local authorities can be on their way. Also, because you’re able to watch your home from anywhere you’ll be able to alert the authorities even if you’re not at home when something happens.
5. Deters Theft: Just having a home security system of any kind will deter thieves and other unwanted intruders from your home. The University of North Carolina published a paper that outlines the behavior and habits of thieves. In the paper it points out that most burglars attempt to find out if the home has an active security system when looking for a target. Whether the cameras are visible outside of your home or you have a sign stating that the house is being watched by home security cameras intruders are going to think twice before breaking in.
