In today’s world of technological advancements, the safety and security of one’s home is a growing concern for homeowners. The best way to prevent modern day burglars from entering your property, is to install a CCTV system for your home. The advantages of installing a surveillance system in your home are more than just allowing you to sleep soundly at night, they include:
- CCTV allows you to monitor your home anytime from anywhere.
Having CCTV installed at your home will allow you to have 24-hour visual contact with your home even when you not at home from your smart phone or laptop – this is known as remote viewing CCTV. Utilising this will allow you to take action when there is a problem at your home and you are at the office or away from your property.
- CCTV Enhances your existing security system
You may already have an existing security system which alerts police or armed response companies of a break in, but having a CCTV system installed will record the actual events at your home, acting as a secondary source of information when it comes to solving the crime. Using a comprehensive CCTV system for your home will allow you to have a more complete security barrier between your home and the outside world.
- Installing CCTV can save you money
One of the best ways to reduce homeowner insurance premiums is to make your home safer, as recording any activity that causes damage to your property on your CCTV system is one way to positively impact your homeowner’s insurance rate. A home surveillance system can also help with saving money by allowing pre-emptive action from home owners when seeing any criminal activity on their property.
- Video surveillance systems are easy-to-use.
CCTV is a great “set-it-and-forget-it” security system for busy people and once installed, the only aspect you will be responsible for is knowing how to use the software on your smartphone, computer, tablet or laptop. Because a CCTV system is so easy to use, it allows for more peace of mind, as you will not have to learn a complicated software system in order to watch over your home.
Our CCTV systems are very user friendly and easy to manage, and an added perk of Iron Curtain Security, is that we have Help Desk Support available for those that get stuck in the process. We are able to efficiently help and assist all our clients, no matter the problem.
- CCTV Footage is the best evidence for court cases.
The primary reason for installing a CCTV system in your home is to prevent and possibly deter crime, however, if a crime does take place on your property, you will need to have a recording of what happened in order to evidence in a courtroom. Solving the crime that took place on your property is more likely to happen if you are able to provide recorded evidence of what took place!
- CCTV allows you to check in on your family, pets and your domestic workers.
You may see CCTV systems predominantly as safety tools, but these systems can also be used to check up on family and pets while you are away from home. You will have 24 hour visual contact and access to your home with our remote viewing CCTV systems, you will be able to see via your smartphone or tablet whether or not the dog is behaving, or if your child has arrived home safely from school.
You will also be able to monitor the productivity of your domestic worker, and see if he or she is actively doing their duties or are simply being idle or robbing your home.
- CCTV systems allow you to monitor low-traffic areas of your property
Just as a business or office has areas that are not frequented by foot traffic, or has dark corners that are hard to see, a residential property has prime areas for criminals to use to remain unseen such as your garage, backyard or other areas that are not well-lit. By installing a CCTV system in your home, you will now be able to monitor these areas and have a complete view of your property.
