Home Security Camera Use On The Rise

Aug 17, 2007
With crime on the rise, home and business owners have become more vigilant about protecting their valuable assets. The security camera is almost a must have in some areas.

Security cameras come in all manner of shapes and sizes from the business security camera to CCTV. As a homeowner, some decisions need to be made about exactly what is required for domestic security purposes. A home security camera is still somewhat of a luxury item for most although you'd be surprised at their cost.

So what would a homeowner require a security camera for? The obvious of course is against theft and burglary. While security cameras won't physically stop a burglar in his tracks, the thought that an intruder has no idea he's being monitored gives greater peace of mind. Caught on camera, the identification process of a thief is certainly a heck of a lot easier.

Burglary and theft are an obvious reason to install a security camera but following a mini survey I conducted amongst security camera owners, it dawned on me that protection against some other factors seemed to overshadow the burglary aspect. For example, monitoring cleaners. Yes, house cleaners. Obviously some homeowners have had bad experiences in the past citing property theft as a major concern. When you think about it, leaving someone you don't know in your home, even though you attempt to show plenty of trust, is still a little uncomfortable for most people.

Monitoring children with a home security camera seems to be rapidly climbing to the top of the reasons why homeowners install cameras. Apart from being able to check on the kids from inside the home, the attraction of being able to monitor them outside the home is also a big factor. This is especially so for homeowners with swimming pools.

An ouside home security camera is also a valuable asset in being able to monitor who comes to your front door. Brazen thieves in today's modern society, in some cases, have no fear whatsoever. How many times do we wake up in the morning and hear about another home invasion incident that happened somewhere in the city overnight? With an outside home security camera, you decide if you want to open your door to a stranger. This is particularly vital to our elderly citizens who are able to monitor walk traffic to their front door.

There are plenty of options for you to consider when thinking home security camera. Web cams, cameras within your computer and television set up and fake security cameras. Yes fake. These cameras mimic real security cameras and are designed to act more as a deterrent. They are certainly a cheap alternative to consider as you work your way towards the purchase of a full home security camera system.
