Today’s criminals are becoming more brazen than ever. They may not think twice about breaking into a home, regardless of whether it is occupied. One way to take a proactive stance against burglaries or other home-based crimes is to install security cameras. Not only can the system act as a deterrent, but it can also provide law enforcement with vital evidence needed for apprehending the perpetrator(s) in the event of an incident.
Why the Need for Increased Vigilance?
The latest Uniform Crime Report from the FBI revealed a 5.4 decrease in property crimes across the country in the first half of 2013.
However, this should not be taken as a signal for homeowners to become complacent when it comes to protecting their homes and family. In fact, there has been an increase in the number of home invasions that occur while people are in the house. This type of burglary may involve violence and thus carries a stiffer consequences.
Some homeowners may think that their best defense is to attempt to subdue an invader with a weapon of their own, such as a gun or knife. This is not an ideal solution, especially if people lack experience using these protective tools, as they may easily be overpowered and have their own weapons used on them.
Strategically installed security cameras can alert a home’s occupants that an intruder is present. Some IP cameras are extremely convenient in that they do not require the use of an electrical outlet, and therefore cannot be unplugged. Instead, they are powered via an Ethernet cable that can be run through the ceiling or walls to attach the camera to the DVR controller component.
Most systems can be accessed remotely through any Internet-enabled device such as a smartphone or tablet if something seems amiss.
