Whether you want to make sure your St. Charles home is safe and secure, or you need security for your St. Charles business, having security cameras installed professionally is always the best decision.
Sure, surveillance cameras are available for purchase at many retail outlets. You can buy them and install them yourself. But you should be aware that these cameras are not the commercial grade and are not designed to run continuously. Why would you want security that are not dependable for making sure your property is monitored at all times?
Video surveillance systems purchased and installed by professionals like Gateway Lock & Security will provide you with the peace of mind you really want. You’ll have the ability to monitor your property remotely from anywhere there is WIFI connection, using your desktop, laptop or mobile device.
5 Reasons to Have Video Surveillance Systems
There are numerous reasons why your home or business needs a video surveillance system installed on the premises. We’ve listed 5 top ways that they are important.
1. Video Cameras Protect Property from Intruders
Statistics show that homes without security systems are almost three times more likely to be broken into or vandalized. If potential intruders see video cameras, they are more resistant to invading that property because of the increased risk of detection.
2. Theft Prevention
You have worked hard to build your business and you likely have invested a lot of time and money on assets. Having a professionally-installed video surveillance system installed at your office or warehouse can deter theft from burglars, as well as prevent employees and customers from stealing what doesn’t belong to them.
Even if the presence of the security cameras aren’t enough to keep the intruders from invading and destroying or robbing you of your valuables, they can capture images that serve as evidence to help law enforcement in pursuing and prosecuting the criminals.
3. Remote Monitoring
You don’t have to be present in order to know what’s going on in and around your home or business if you have professionally installed security cameras. The modern video surveillance systems allow you to see what’s going on from anywhere there is WIFI access, using your smart phone, laptop or tablet.
By having the ability to see what’s happening remotely, you can preclude some issues or catch someone (or even some THING like critters invading your space!) in the act. Having video evidence can help resolve or prevent future invasions or damage.
4. Keeping an Eye on Kids, Pets and the Elderly
If you have latch-key kids, or even teenagers, having the ability to see what they’re up to can prevent injury and protect them from harm. Let’s face it, kids are sometimes tempted to break some rules and leave without permission or allow unapproved visitors in. Worse yet, if there is someone stalking the home, endangering your loved ones, you can intercept them by phoning the police.
If you have elderly parents or other loved ones home alone, you can make sure they stay safe by checking on them remotely during the course of the day.
5. Monitor Activity
Cameras on the exterior of your property can catch activities that are happening, such as trespassers and unwanted visitors. The activity may not even be malicious; even critters leaving unwanted “gifts” or snacking on your garden vegetables can be captured so that you can take preventive measures to avoid them in the future.
