How a surveillance camera can assist with an incident. A home security camera is one of the best tools for home protection, and it can work both as a deterrent and to recover items. Burglars are wary of properties with visible security cameras. If a crime does occur, security cameras can help gather evidence. From property damage to potentially identifying criminals who break in, if you capture the action on camera, you're more likely to be able to remedy it.
However, if you want to be able to identify cars, people, and other moving objects, it’s worth investing in a good camera. Ensure the camera has features that include night vision, built in sirens, and a mobile app that is easy to use. Having good technology that can zoom in to see more detail on license plates and identify more physical characteristics. However, statistics show, most burglaries are forcible entries (breaking windows, picking locks, kicking in doors, etc.).
DETER CRIME WITH CAMERAS
Ultimately, a good security system, including surveillance security cameras, can be a great deterrent for these types of crimes. Home security cameras work best to protect your property when they're integrated with a home security system. To save their batteries, wireless security cameras only start to record when they detect motion, which means they may not record everything you'd want them to. With a home security system, cameras can be set to start recording as soon as any part of the security system is triggered, such as a contact sensor, a glass-break sensor, or a motion sensor. This makes it more likely the cameras will record everything that’s happening on your property and not just the few seconds of motion that occurred right in front of them.
