Aside from the obvious benefit of being able to monitor your house or your place of business, are there any more benefits in installing CCTV security systems?
Aside from allowing you to monitor your premises, CCTV cameras also act as deterrents against criminals. An intruder who sees a mounted alarm system is most unlikely to risk it. Driving away criminals is much better than dealing with intrusion once it occurred.
This is evidenced by a study that found using CCTV in car parks has resulted in 51per cent decrease in crime.
Using CCTV security systems also allow you to reduce your home and property insurance cost because they make you a less likely target of theft and robbery. In an unfortunate event that a burglar has managed to enter your home, CCTV offers evidence towards insurance claims. The more evidence to support your claim, the better your chances of getting paid for what you’ve lost.
Lastly, and perhaps the most important benefit of CCTV camera system, is giving users a sense of security and peace of mind, particularly in areas where the crime rate is high. Many of the more advanced models even allow users to monitor their property remotely through their smartphone or tablet.
