Many home owners now choose to install CCTV systems in their own homes. Why is it important to have CCTV installed in our homes?
CCTV cameras are an effective deterrent to criminals. It increases the risk of criminals being caught because they could be identified through the camera footage. Most criminals will scout through affluent suburbs looking for the easiest house to break into. Having an obvious CCTV system, or another security alarm installed in your home,, makes the house appear to be a more difficult target. Therefore the criminals will likely move on to the next house.
Modern CCTV systems can be monitored through mobile phone apps. Therefore it is possible to view live footage of your house from anywhere you have internet coverage. Some systems even provide motion detection so when movement is detected, an alert can be sent to your phone.
