Read on to learn more.

Deter Criminals

One of the main benefits of installing home security systems is that the average thieve will be deterred. Burglars do not want any evidence that they were there, even if they are concealing their identity through a mask because with any amount of video there is always a chance of getting caught.

Keep in mind mind that if you try to cut corners to save money and install dummy cameras, most seasoned thieves know what these look like and will not fall for them.

Insurance Benefits

Another pro of investing in a video surveillance system is that if you ever do have to go through a theft claim with your insurance company this footage will help you. Having video with proof of the theft or even vandalism will validate your insurance claim and you won’t have to worry about getting denied and going back and forth with your carrier.

On top of helping you during a claim, most insurance companies will also give you a discount of up to 20% when you have a video monitoring system for your home.

Check in With Family

While you are away you can check back with whoever is at the house. For example, during summer vacation if your kids are home you can see how they’re doing and with some systems you can even speak to them through a speaker.

Not only can you check on your kids but you can also check on your fur babies when they are home alone. You never know when your pet will get stressed out because you aren’t there so having a camera system will allow you to keep them at ease by talking to them or sending someone to the house to take care of them if you can’t promptly pick up and go home.

You can go the extra step and install a system that also has facial recognition. This means that when someone arrives home you will receive a notification telling you “XYZ is at the front door.”
