Importance of having a CCTV camera in your home?

April 8, 2015


A house is not only where people sleep, eat and live, it is a refuge where a sense of security is paramount important to maintain. That is what makes a house a home, it’s a safe and secure place. That is important to people of any age. In fact, home security cannot be emphasised enough, it is even a consideration before construction begins. In fact, architects are trained about home security and design homes with security in mind.

Home designs are just the beginning; home security systems that include CCTV cameras ensure another level of security that protects a family’s home, making it truly safe and secure. How does it do that? That is a honest question, with a great answer.

What is the importance of having a CCTV camera in your home?

The importance of having a CCTV camera in your home is something any head of the family should take serious, because it helps to keep their home safe. How? Modern security methods and equipment have become an integral part in security for residential and commercial properties, especially CCTV cameras and the supporting equipment that monitors a family’s home all day, every day, seven days a week, and all year long. And CCTV cameras do this even when no one is at home.

CCTV cameras, commonly called closed-circuit television cameras, make it possible to better secure properties. They do this by recording any events/movements in the area of their range of sight. Transmitting their broadcast by a wireless signal to a recording device, the recordings can then be examined at any time.

Live broadcasts are commonly viewed by security personnel for many commercial properties, while residential properties usually record them so that the property owner can view events that had occurred in their absence. The importance of having a CCTV camera in your home cannot be over emphasised, especially if located in an area of town where crime is on the rise. It just makes sense, and it can deter crime.

CCTV cameras in your home deters crime

Not only are CCTV recordings valuable as evidence, in cases of a crime, they actually deter crime. Crime prevention is under promoted in many areas of the country, CCTVs and/or dummy CCTVs placed in viable locations can actually deter people from committing crimes. In this regard, crime-prevention can be as simple as letting potential criminals know that their acts will be recorded and used against them.

High definition cameras are available now, that provide high resolution broadcastings that can easily identify lawbreakers. These are known as HD-SDI CCTV cameras. It stands for High Serial Digital Interface Closed-Circuit Television. And, these impressive cameras are more affordable, and easier to install, than ever before.
