Throughout the last 15-20 years CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) or Camera Systems have come a long way. From the size of the camera, to the resolutions of the lens, to the price of the camera the industry has changed for the better. Local Cities and Municipalities are installing cameras on street lights, on public buildings, and even providing rebates to home owners who allow them to remotely access their exterior cameras. Camera Systems are an investment that will pay for themselves at one point or another. Speaking from experience I can tell you several different scenarios that installing cameras covered their investments:
Peace of Mind
There is always the peace of mind aspect of a camera system. From watching your children get off the school bus, to verifying that a contractor or cleaning service has arrived, to just checking on your home when you are on vacation, a camera system can always provide you with added peace of mind in your everyday life.
Multiple customers have informed us that their cameras aided in missing packages, stolen packages, mail theft and even mailboxes getting destroyed by passing vehicles or pedestrians.
Theft happens more and more these days, and the unfortunate reality is that thieves will continue to do so even if cameras are present on the property. The benefit of having a camera system is that it can provide up to a 50% more likely chance that the thief is identified. From bikes to motorcycles to cars to cash and so on, we have heard it all. The best feeling is when a customer calls back to inform us that a suspect was captured due to High Definition Cameras installed at the residence or business.
Unfortunately crimes do happen everyday and they are not selective to certain areas or neighborhoods, they can occur anywhere, at any time. Our camera systems have helped capture burglars, vehicle thefts, assaults and even homicide suspects.
At the end of the day, camera systems will eventually pay for themselves. From the peace of mind in watching your children come home to capturing a theft or burglary, there is always value in CCTV.
