3 Benefits of Security Cameras 14

You’ve seen security cameras on homes in your neighborhood and businesses on your block, but you’re not sure if video monitoring is right for you. To make the decision a little easier, we’ve broken down the top three benefits of installing a video surveillance system.


1. Save Money

You may worry that installing a video surveillance system is too expensive, but keep in mind, your system can actually save you money. Installing a video surveillance system can lower your homeowner’s insurance premiums by up to 20 percent.

Insurance companies recognize that installing security cameras can significantly improve the security of your property. Studies have shown that homes with security systems are one-third less likely to be burglarized than those without. In 2015, the FBI reported over 14.3 billion dollars in losses due to property crimes.

2. Secure your Property

LTS cameras allow you to monitor your home or business from anywhere on your iPhone, Android, laptop or tablet. You can easily stream live video to a monitor and keep an eye on things without leaving your office chair, or peek in from your smart phone while on the go. The Alarm.com doorbell camera is an easy way to improve access control. See who’s at your door in real time and even unlock your door’s smart lock for welcome guests.

Choose from a variety of high definition indoor and outdoor security cameras, and then configure them easily from your own phone.

3. Fight Crime

For many people, the most obvious reason to install a surveillance system is to deter would-be criminals. If someone does break in or damage your property, video recordings are the best evidence to bring to a court case.

With 24/7 video monitoring, you can go back to the time of the break in or other event and view saved video. These recordings can be easily downloaded and handed over to the appropriate authorities. In the meantime, you can be sure your saved video is safe and secure. It’s encrypted with the same type of security banks and e-commerce websites use.

    I’m glad you mention how video surveillance allows you to monitor what is going on without having to leave your chair. This could be important to make sure you notice any problems early on in order to give you time to figure out what to do. when choosing a surveillance system, it would probably be a good idea to figure out where to put it in order to get the best coverage and to choose a brand and model that is easy to use and will provide clear footage.

    That’s really cool that you’re 1/3 less likely to be burglarized if you have a security system according to some studies. My husband and I live in a good neighborhood, but I could see people targeting neighborhoods like mine because they’re good. I don’t know if that actually makes sense, but I think that we should install some video surveillance systems to keep us safe.

    Thank you for the 3 benefits of security cameras. I definitely think that installing security cameras is one of the best ways to secure your property and deter potential threats. You can always check up on your house even when you are away and thieves are less likely to try and steal anything knowing they are being watched.

    My husband and I have been trying to think of ways to better secure our home. I had no idea that installing cameras around our home could lower our insurance premiums up to 20 percent. We’ll have to look into this for sure, and it would be nice to just feel more secure anyway!

    I like your point about how video recordings are the best evidence to use in a court case. My wife and I are thinking about installing a security system in our new home, so this is something we’ll definitely consider. 24/7 monitoring would make me feel much safer at home.

    It was good to know that the security camera system can actually help in reducing the home insurance premium by 20%, thus allowing me to save money. This is good because it will hit both me and my mom’s objectives. Lowering the home insurance rate is one of the things that I really want to happen and keeping the house safe is what she wants to happen. Thank for sharing this.

    Wow, I never knew that installing security cameras could decrease your homeowner’s insurance premium by up to 20%! That would be a major benefit because you get the security your family needs while saving money in the long run. We’ll have to see if we could get some security cameras so that we can keep all of our kids safe while they’re at home and lower our premiums. I never want to have to worry about our kids’ safety when they are here.

    My family just moved to a shady part of our city, and we’re thinking of getting security cameras to give us some peace of mind. Your article had great points about the benefits of something like this, and I liked how you said that if someone does break into or damage our property, video recordings are great evidence for a court case. Thanks we’ll keep this in mind when considering security cameras.

    I’m glad you explained that installing a security system in your home can actually help you solve money because it will lower the premiums on your insurance policy. With how advanced security systems have become, it seems like investing in one would be a really good idea. I’ll have to contact a local company and see what options I can choose from for my home.

    It’s interesting that homes with security systems are less likely to be burglarized in the first place. I’ve been thinking about getting a security system ever since there was a robbery 3 doors down from me. It would definitely give me more peace of mind to know that the system could both prevent and protect me from crime.
