8 Benefits of Home Surveillance Cameras

What’s all the hype about home surveillance cameras? Everybody in town seems to have one these days, and you’re starting to feel a little behind the times. If you’re considering getting a surveillance system for your own home, here are just a few of the many benefits of security cameras to think about.

1. DETER INTRUDERS

Intruders usually go for houses that are easy targets. So if they see your home security cameras surrounding the house, they’re probably going to pass yours right on by.

2. QUICK RESPONSE TIMES

True, traditional alarms will alert the authorities that you’re in trouble, but you’ll get a much faster response when you have a surveillance camera to verify the emergency.

3. SOUND EVIDENCE

We hope you don’t ever need to use video footage as evidence in court. But if you do, we’ve got you covered. Video surveillance is one of the most credible sources of evidence in theft court cases.*

4. CHECK IN ON YOUR KIDS

Are you up at night worrying about your kids’ safety when your nanny or babysitter comes? You can finally put your mind at ease once you install home security cameras, which allow you to see what’s going on while you’re away.

Many indoor cameras also allow you to access two-way audio and video footage directly from your phone—making it possible to connect with your kids and check in no matter where you are. Whether you want to check in when they get home from school, while they’re home during the summer, or just when you’ve stepped out for a moment you’ll have peace of mind knowing your children are safe.

5. STAY IN-THE-KNOW

A home surveillance system helps you stay informed on what’s happening on your property at all times. No more guessing who is at the door, when a package was delivered, or why the garage door is open. You’ll feel more secure at home knowing you have 24/7 protection, access to video analytics, and real-time notifications sent directly to your phone.

6. OUTDOOR SECURITY

Every property has those spots that are dark and hidden, but a home security system will keep your home safe by overseeing even those vulnerable areas. Night vision cameras will let you know what’s going on around your house at all times.

7. CHECK ON YOUR PETS

Leaving pets at home can be stressful. (Did the cat wander outside again? Is the puppy in trouble again?) But home security cameras will ease your mind, since you can use them to check in on your beloved furry friends.

8. DOCUMENT INSURANCE CLAIMS

If you ever need to make an insurance claim because of vandalism, theft, or disaster in your home, your security camera could play a big part in helping you document the claim. You might even get a discount on your insurance for having a security system installed.
