Many homeowners associate CCTV (closed circuit television) systems with a type of security used only in businesses. However, this type of security system can also be a valuable asset for your home. Here are 5 reasons for installing Burglar Security and CCTV system in your home:
Protection From Intruders
The number one reasons home owners should consider installing a CCTV system in that it offers protection to your family members from intruders. Homes without a security system are at a higher risk of being burglarized. The mere presence of an alarm system often prevents an intruder from breaking in. A CCTV system allows you to install cameras almost anywhere on the premises, including outdoors, so you will be able to see who is at the door, without getting close to it. This feature is especially beneficial for families with children of working parents, as it will allow the children and you (remotely) to see who is at the door.
Monitor Your Home From Anywhere
CCTV allows you to monitor your home from work, vacation, anywhere that you have internet access. This type of system also allows you to remotely arm or disarm the cameras. Some systems can also have additional features installed that allows you to remotely turn on the lights and/or access the heating or air conditioning to adjust the temperature in your home.
Save on Homeowners Insurance
The cost of homeowners insurance can be high, depending on where you live and the type of policy you have. Reduced insurance premiums are another benefit of CCTV for your home. The installation of a CCTV system is a one time investment, but you will continue to save on your homeowners insurance cost for as long as you carry insurance.
Nanny's, Pets and Home Care Nursing
One of the best reasons to install a CCTV system is that you can monitor everyone and everything in your home at all times. For example, if you have a babysitter or nanny watching your children or a home care nurse taking care of an elderly parent, you can monitor how well they are taking care of your family. If you have pets, a CCTV system allows you to make sure your pets are okay while you are away.
Secure Less Frequented Areas of the Home
A home security system will allow you to secure the less frequented areas of your home, such as the garage and the basement. This makes it more difficult for an intruder to gain entry into your home and go unnoticed.
The presence of a CCTV home security system provides families with a peace of mind knowing that their family, pets and home are protected from a range of devastating scenarios. If there is an intruder, you can alert the police from anywhere, which means a quicker response time and in many situations, the intruder may be caught before they leave with your valuables.
