Having a video surveillance system installed does cost money. Let’s face it; nothing in life is free. But if you compare the cost against your safety and security—and especially that of your family—the benefits you get far outweigh the cost.
Summer is here, and with it comes some additional concerns regarding security for your home. Here are some of the reasons you need to consider installing security cameras now.
1. Your children are home.
School is out and that means the kids are home, at least more than they are during the school year. Whether your children are home alone or with a babysitter or nanny, keeping an eye on what goes on in and around your property can be invaluable to you.
Are the kids getting too much screen time? Are they allowing unauthorized visitors? Are the leaving the house without permission? Is the nanny supervising her charges appropriately? All these infractions, and more, can be captured via remote monitoring if you have security cameras mounted inside the home.
2. The neighbors’ kids are home.
Even if you don’t have kids at home, there are still the neighborhood kids who are out of school. They could be getting into mischief which affects your property, like jumping over the fence into your yard. If you have a trampoline, swimming pool or other potentially harmful item in your yard, it may even be dangerous for them to be there. At the very least, they shouldn’t be in your yard anyway without permission.
With the ability to check on your property remotely via installed video cameras, you can catch these instances in order to prevent further intrusions, damage or injury.
3. The landscapers are there.
Here during the Midwest summers, the grass grows fast and you may hire contractors to tend to your home’s lawn and landscape. With security cameras installed on your home’s exterior, you can see what they are up to and make sure the workers are doing what you’re paying them to do.
Good weather is the time to have improvements, repairs and remodeling done on your home. If you hire an outside company and authorize them to perform these jobs when you are away, you can hopefully trust that they are working to your specifications. But why take the risk of them taking shortcuts, using lesser quality materials, or doing shoddy workmanship? Or even worse, they could be stealing or vandalizing your property. If you have security cameras installed, you’d be able to catch them in the act!
Your home is your castle, and probably the biggest investment you’ll ever make. Don’t risk having it compromised—get a video surveillance system installed to protect your property, and especially your family!
If you cannot be there physically, do the next best thing. With remote access from anyplace with WIFI or cellular network, you can monitor your home inside and out. You can also use the recordings from the cameras as evidence, should you need it. So, with a computer, tablet or even smart phone, you’ll be able to track what’s happening while you’re away.
