In an ideal world, you wouldn’t need a bad dog or surveillance cameras to protect your home and family. However, modern society is far from ideal. Any day now, you might be the victim of professional burglars, home intruders or devious household help.
Think it couldn’t happen to you?
What if a sharp-dressed man rings the doorbell and your kid opens the front door? Stranger danger is real.
What if your elderly parent slips and falls in the bathroom?
What if you hired a home keeper with impeccable references? What if little things were suddenly missing? A little change…a little food…a little heirloom broach. If you had invested in camera surveillance, you would have seen her pocket the change, feeding your groceries to her husband at lunchtime and slipping the broach into her bra.
Consider this: is it better to install ’round-the-clock monitoring before or after a traumatic event?
Perhaps you’re concerned about the cost. Quality video surveillance systems aren’t cheap. However, they are affordable now. Also, the money you put out on the front-end pays dividends on the back-end with peace of mind.
If you go wireless, you can mount hidden cameras inside and outside your home. You can connect them to your internet, as well as your present security system. Wouldn’t it be a comfort to know this extra pair of eyes is watching over your family and home when you travel or work late?
Manufacturers make it easy to place covert cameras in every room of your home by producing various shapes and sizes. Some are book-shaped to discretely mingle with real books. Small sensors fit in light switches. For a child’s room, you can find these electronic devices shaped like stuffed animals. Put a clock with a secret cam on the mantle. Stick one inside a flowerpot by the front entrance.
Don’t forget to install a video car spy! Imagine the look on a vandal’s face when he finds out the innocent rear view mirror snapped him in the act!
A little known benefit of video home monitors is the potential to obtain a discount on your homeowner’s insurance. Insurance companies like preventative measures and frequently reward the policyholder. Check with your insurance agent and you just might be in for a good surprise!
Be mindful, video images of the perpetrator are permissible as evidence in court. What if you could provide picture-proof to authorities in the event it does ever happen to you?
