  2. Deterrent and crime prevention
  3. Prosecution
  4. Remote monitoring
  5. Ideal in conjunction with intruder alarms
  6. Reduced insurance premium
  7. Low price high quality

Peace of Mind

Feel safe, feel secure and feel good! Knowing that you have a CCTV system installed by professional CCTV installers goes quite some way to putting your mind at rest about the safety of your family and home. This is one of the greatest benefits of CCTV.

Deterrent and Crime Prevention

Criminals are dissuaded from breaking into your home and stealing from you or committing other crimes such as vandalism and anti-social behaviour. Most criminals like the easy option and will pursue properties that are not protected by CCTV.

Prosecution

If a crime does occur within or outside your home, then prosecutions have a greater chance of being successful if you have CCTV installed. Suspects can easily be identified and CCTV footage is compelling evidence for courts.

Remote Monitoring

Another benefit of CCTV is that modern systems allow remote monitoring on a computer, tablet or mobile phone via a secure connection over the internet. You can login remotely from anywhere in the world and check your CCTV cameras for activity.

Ideal in Conjunction with Intruder Alarms

Remote monitoring is particularly useful if you also have an intruder alarm installed. When your alarm is triggered you will receive a notification or call to your mobile phone and if you are away from home, on holiday for example, you can login to view your camera footage and determine if the incident is a false alarm or not.

Reduced Insurance Premium

Insurance companies will often reduce your premium if you have CCTV installed. It’s worth calling your insurer to find out if you can have a discount on your premium and save money.

Low Price, High Quality

These days home CCTV installation is relatively inexpensive. Cameras, digital video recorders (DVR) and installation by an experienced installer is cost effective and when looking at the advantages above is well worth the cost. The days of grainy, low quality black and white footage are over, modern systems are capable of recording and playing back in full HD (high definition).
