Before the most recent technology boom, video surveillance was mainly used by large, very wealthy companies and in the spy movies. Today, if you walk down the street, I guarantee you will see at least 5 within a few minutes. Video surveillance has quickly gained traction in our world, and it has gained the world a series of “Burglaries Gone Wrong” videos, while also serving it’s purpose as a way to deter burglars and lurkers.
Here are three reasons why having a home video surveillance system is beneficial:
1. Surveillance Systems Deter Criminals
When scoping out a home or business to break in to, burglars are on the look out for surveillance systems. Having professional video surveillance can be unnerving to the potential criminal. It is worth the money to avoid potential loss and damages. Security systems are meant to prevent the act from occurring, rather than catching the aftermath. Although, the aftermath on video certainly does help find the burglar and can usually provide future entertainment on “Burglaries Gone Wrong” videos.
2. Catch ‘Em In the Act
