At Wilson Security, our mission is to offer you peace of mind in your home or commercial property. We can design and install a CCTV system that suits your budget and meets your safety needs. All of our cameras can operate automatically between daylight and nighttime vision, providing hundreds of hours of coverage as they are set to record continually and ultimately protecting what matters to you most.
Here are the top 4 reasons to consider investing in security cameras for your property:
Eyes and Ears of Your Property
First and foremost, the cameras provide a great way to keep an eye on the goings-on around the parameters of the house. One example is you might have the kids playing outside with their friends. Having the security camera in a place that feeds the footage to your phone enables you to keep an eye on them while remaining inside.
Another scenario is that your home alone, and the doorbell rings at night. Rather than going down to answer, as we would traditionally, you can check to see who is at the door through the security camera audio and talk to that person through your phone before deciding to answer. Security cameras act as the eyes and ears of your property, enabling you to react quickly to a potential issue or any unwanted activity.
Act as a Deterrent to Burglars
While we wouldn’t recommend that you solely have cameras on your property as your security solution, they are a valuable asset to your home security kit. Studies have proven that security cameras can deter burglars as they don’t want to be caught on camera. For example, a survey of incarcerated burglars undertaken by the Criminal Department at the University of North Carolina identified that in the cases where there were indicators of increased security, such as outdoor surveillance cameras, most burglars “were considered” when selecting their target.
Assist Gardaí in Break-In Investigations
Unfortunately for those who do experience a burglary, cameras can be hugely beneficial in assisting the Gardaí with their investigation. The high definition technology and ability to zoom in and out enable you to identify the culprits, potentially their car registration, to track them down.
Supports Insurance Claim Preparation
In the event of a break-in, you will also need to notify your insurance broker and prepare a claim for lost goods. Being able to back this claim up with CCTV footage showing the event and the items taken can greatly support your claim and move things along more efficiently. Some insurance companies are also offering discounts on house insurance policies for homeowners who have their cameras installed, so it’s worth investigating for that reason alone.
