Crime is on the rise yet again. For this reason alone, more and more homeowners are finding themselves wanting to install a home video surveillance system. These types of systems not only deter would-be criminals from entering into your home, but also provide your local authorities with the evidence that they need to convict the criminals who broke in. For this reason alone, you may want to consider installing home video surveillance into highly visible areas that suspects will notice before they ever enter onto your property.
Interior Security Cameras
Interior CCTV kit, such as nanny cams, are becoming more and more popular due to both family members having to work outside of the house to make ends meet. When you have to leave your child at home with a nanny or babysitter, you really do not know what is going on inside the home. Having a nanny cam installed allows you to drop in on your babysitter when they least expect it, to ensure that they are taking proper care of your children.
Home owners with a smaller security budget than others are finding quite a few benefits in fake dummy CCTV camera set up. These types of cameras look and function much like a real camera, but they do not include the necessary hardware to record the video that is being projected. These cameras do still act as a deterrent to would-be criminals, but if they still decide to break into your home, you will not have the necessary evidence to give to authorities in order to prosecute the offenders.
Real Exterior Security Cameras
The cream of the crop when it comes to home security, real functioning exterior security cameras are the best defense for your home if you can afford them. The installation and recording hardware does cost quite a bit of money, so you need to price out systems before you start spending anything on camera surveillance.
