In this day and age, when crime rates are soaring due to the cost of living increasing, it’s essential to have a good quality CCTV system installed at home, for your peace of mind more than anything else.
There are numerous benefits of having CCTV installed at your home, in this article we discuss 7 of the benefits we think are most important.
1. Peace Of Mind
Feeling safe and secure by knowing you have a decent CCTV system installed by professional and accredited CCTV installers puts your mind at rest about the safety of your home, your family and your assets. We’d say this is one of the greatest benefits of having CCTV installed.
No more worrying about what’s going on at home when you’re at work, or even when you’re away on holiday.
2. Crime Prevention
Seeing that you have CCTV installed is generally enough to deter criminals especially burglars and vandals who could break in or destroy your property. Most criminals check for things like CCTV and intruder alarms before they’ll even attempt to trespass, they prefer to target easier options, houses and businesses without adequate security in place.
If a crime does happen to occur outside your home, then there’s a greater chance of them being successfully caught if you have CCTV installed. With a high quality camera installed, suspects can easily be identified and your footage can be used as evidence in court.
4. Remote Monitoring
Another great benefit of modern CCTV systems is that they allow remote monitoring, you can use a computer, tablet or smartphone via connecting over the internet. You can login from anywhere in the world to check your CCTV cameras for activity.
5. CCTV + Intruder Alarms
Having an intruder alarm installed with remote monitoring means you’ll be notified if your alarm is triggered, you can then quickly login to view your CCTV footage and determine if the incident is a false alarm or something that you need to report. Using both security systems in conjunction with one another is the best way to secure your home.
6. Reduced Insurance
Insurance companies sometimes reduce your premium if you have CCTV installed. It’s worth calling your insurers to find out if a discount might be available once your new system is set up.
These days, CCTV is relatively inexpensive, especially when you think about how much it costs vs how much it’d cost for you to replace your things if your house was broken into.
Having your CCTV supplied and installed by professionals means that you get the very best equipment possible and you know that they will install it correctly and test it thoroughly before leaving your property.
