Home Surveillance Systems

Crime statistics say it all.  Virtually everywhere, every town, every state and every region of our country, crime is skyrocketing.  What else should we expect after years of unemployment and underemployment?  People are having to do almost anything to pay bills and feed their families.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying its okay.  Its most certainly not.  But, it is reality.  What can you do to protect your home or your business?

Well, for starters, get outside and look at your property from the viewpoint of a potential burglar or vandal.  Take off your “owner’s” glasses and really look at it like you want in.  How would you get in?  What’s the easiest way?  What’s the most hidden way in so neighbors won’t see?  What’s the best way in to allow them to get stuff out easily?  Armed with this information, consider adding a home surveillance system.  Is it feasible?  Would it be able to cover the property properly?   How would you monitor the video you capture?  Would the cameras be exposed enough so a burglar would see them well enough and possibly think twice?  I like home surveillance systems better, generally, than security monitoring systems because the security systems are not overly visible from the outside.  But, the cameras are highly visible.  And, you can set up your surveillance system to call your cell phone or email you if its triggered.  So, the monitoring thing is still available.  But, regardless what you end up doing, you know you need to do something.  Crime continues upward.
