These days, we tend to take our security for granted. If we live in a pleasant neighborhood, with well-maintained lawns and nice cars, it may very well appear your home is safe enough. Well safe is relative; even guard gated neighborhood have break-ins, assaults and kidnappings. The truth is, the community isn’t going to provide the best protection from an intruder wanting to burglarize or terrorize your home or family. It’s up to you.


If you really want to breathe easier, then make sure you have taken personal steps to ensure your own residence is as secure as possible. You may have alarms in place, but the icing on the cake is a video surveillance system. Here are just a few of the advantages you’ll derive from having one installed in your home:


  1. It deters prospective burglars. Unless you are a specific target, a slim to none chance, the thieves are going to go for the path of least resistance. They want quick and easy, and they certainly don’t want to be on camera.

  2. Monitor child caretakers or pets. Cameras are useful for many situations, including keeping an eye on what’s happening while you are away from home. This includes watching to make sure your middle school and teenage kids are home on time and things aren’t getting out of hand.

  3. Provide evidence against potential false claims of injuries suffered on your premises by domestic employees, visitors or neighbors.

  4. Identify those who visit or enter your home; while you are away, or before you go to the door to allow them access. If you can see there’s a potential problem while they are on your doorstep, it will stop you from opening the door and opening yourself to a possible assault. You can then readily call 911 for assistance or set off the emergency switch on your alarm system.

  5. Money well spent on video surveillance will probably also earn you discounts on your home insurance and lower your liability rates; whether you own or rent your residence.
