According to the FBI’s Crime Clock Statistic:
“A property crime happens every 3.5 seconds.” This could be in your home or business while you are there or away. Criminals are always looking for an opportunity and they do so with the belief that they will not get caught – and many times they do not get caught.
A surveillance system can help discourage criminals from targeting you home or business. Criminals think that if the risk is low and the reward is high, then it could be a potentially good opportunity to take advantage of. However, when the risk is high, and the reward is low, they will look for an easier opportunity. This is exactly why it is important to consider if surveillance cameras for your home or business is right for you.
Before a criminal attempt to break into a home, they usually do some research. Some of the things they research are anything of value to be stolen, how difficult it is to gain entry to the property, what the owners’ typical schedule is, and what if any security system they have to be aware of. As you can imagine, any home surveillance systems will always make a criminal think twice about the risk. Home surveillance camera systems should come with window stickers and lawn stakes for everyone to see – especially anyone who is considering illegal activity on your property.
Many criminals have been caught using home surveillance cameras. Sometimes, it is not from the house they are trying to steal from, but from a neighbor’s home video surveillance system. However, these cases are certainly the exception since the homeowner installed the home video surveillance cameras to protect their own property and not necessarily the protection of their neighbors. Installing home surveillance cameras will certainly make your home, and neighborhood, more secure.
