You’ll often find commercial areas filled to the brim with CCTV cameras. However, commercial areas are not the only properties that need security. Business owners are well aware of the capacity of a CCTV system to deter and prevent crime, and they see these systems as essential to running a safe business. The good news is that a CCTV system can be used just as effectively in your own home. In fact, it’s one of the easiest ways to ensure the security of your home.

There are systems out there that allow you to view your security camera footage on your mobile device, from anywhere with an internet connection. A CCTV system is the perfect foundation or complement to an existing security plan, and in this article, we’re going to take a look at the 5 greatest benefits of using a CCTV system for your home.

  1. Video surveillance augments an existing security system
    You may already have a security system in place. Some homeowners choose to go with a house alarm, which automatically alerts the police in case of a break-in through the window or front door. A CCTV system can act as a second layer of protection, which films the culprits and records information for the police. This facilitates the police investigation, potentially allowing the homeowners to recuperate some of the losses.

    On top of that, the previously mentioned remote viewing capability allows you to view the security feed remotely. This is great when you are away on holiday and you hire someone to take care of your home or pet. You will be able to see for yourself if everything is in order in your home.

  1. A CCTV system can generate savings
    One of the best ways to reduce insurance premiums is to increase the security of your home. Insurance companies have a clause which states that anything that can reduce the risk of damage being done to your home can be used to reduce the insurance premium. A CCTV system definitely falls into this category, and the video evidence captured by the system can help with insurance claims.

    Video recordings also play an important role in court cases. You may be involved in a criminal case in court, which may or may not be related to a break-in. The video evidence will be invaluable when making your claims.

  1. CCTV systems are easy-to-use

    A video surveillance system is great for busy people. After all, who wants another appliance in the home that will need routine maintenance and repairs? A CCTV system is a set it and forget it type of deal that is easy to install and maintain. Most companies offer a support/maintenance service, so you don’t have to worry about upkeep, and all you will need to manage the system is a basic grasp of computers/smartphones.

  1. A CCTV system is great if you have house staff
    If you hire house staff to take care of your property, either inside or outside the home, a CCTV system can help you keep them accountable. Gardeners and housekeepers are great to have around the home, but sometimes you want to make sure you’re getting your money’s worth. With a CCTV system, you can also gather video evidence for any complaint you may have with the staff and make a stronger case for your argument.
  1. Video surveillance can take the place of other monitoring systems
    A video surveillance system can have more than one function. For example, if you have a CCTV system, you don’t really need a baby monitor. The CCTV cameras will serve the exact same function as a newer model of a baby monitor, which films the cot and relays the footage to the parents’ mobile devices.

    A CCTV system can also be set up with motion detectors, which will automatically alert the authorities in case of a break-in. Let’s say you’re out on a weekend break, and you do not have pets, or any house cleaning staff while you’re away. All you have to do to turn your video surveillance system into a full blown security system is activate the motion detectors.

 

As you can see, investing in one of these systems has numerous benefits for a homeowner. From increased security, to increased savings, a CCTV system has much to offer. You will be able to protect your home, monitor all activity from a distance, and record any evidence of wrongdoing on your property.
