Why you should have a CCTV system installed for your property
In this article we hope to help teach you the benefits of having a security system like CCTV installed in your home, office, shop etc that may just help you make up your mind.
A CCTV camera doesn’t have to stick out like a sore thumb. Like in this picture, its well tucked away under the gutter and helps the owner keep an eye on their property from any intruders coming onto the property or to pass round the gate on the side.

We’re going to list off the top 5 reasons to consider purchasing a CCTV system for your property. Carry on reading to find out more…
1. As a precautionary measure
CCTV cameras and monitoring systems improve the security and safety of a particular property. Through monitoring inside the house, you can identify what exactly is going on outside. All of our CCTV Video recorders can be viewed on smart phones or tablets via intelligent mobile applications and facilities. This allows for remote viewing no matter where you are. Have peace of mind even while you’re at work or away on holiday.
2. Have quality image & video evidence of any crimes that occur near your proerty
This is linked in with point 1. CCTV systems obtain evidential quality images and recordings of suspects that may be involved in any criminal activity within the area being monitored. Just in case something does happen, CCTV recordings serve as irrefutable evidence in any investigation; helping identify, find, and bring criminals to justice.
If you live in a friendly neighbourhood, this will definitely help not just yourself but your neighbours feel more safe too. and could help give them evidence if its their property that was targeted by intruders rather than your own.
Or on the other hand if the neighbourhood is not so friendly, it will make your neighbours think twice before they do anything stupid to you or your property. Some cameras like this 4K 8MP Prolux Camera will record Audio as well as video so if there is any verbal abuse, you will have recorded evidence of that too.
3. It's one of the strongest deterrents of crime
A CCTV system has been proven time and time again that it will help prevent crimes and discourage any intruder from bothering you at home. Just seeing a mounted camera or alarm system will make most an intruder decide to try their luck elsewhere.
CCTV can be set up at various blind spots around your home that you can’t see from your windows so that if you hear an unusual noise or would like some extra peace of mind, you can check the perimeter of your property without having to leave your home. Not only is this more safe, it is also less stressful. Another good use of CCTV is to use as a peephole for homes that are without them – if you receive a visitor late at night and are unsure who it could be, you can identify the visitor without having to answer the door. This is particularly useful for vulnerable individuals such as the elderly.
4. Massive pay off for low cost & maintenance
Having a CCTV System in place requires almost no maintenance. So once its purchased and installed, it will keep protecting the property without a user having to interact with the system.
More importantly, a well-built and functional system can provide families with an increased sense of security and peace of mind. Installing a CCTV camera is a low-cost investment in keeping an eye on your children, pets, and properties.
5. Insurance deduction
While financial gain probably isn’t your number one motivator for installing a security system, it is certainly an added bonus that can make CCTV seem more appealing! When evaluating your insurance policy, the security of your property plays a huge impact on the amount of money you will pay, so by taking steps to make your property more secure and reduce the likelihood of your property being damaged or vandalised, you are in turn reducing the likelihood of you making a claim. This means that your insurance will be able to reduce your policy costs.
