Due to the number of home burglaries forever increasing in South Wales, homeowners and Landlords are exploring their home security options more than ever. With devices such as burglar alarms and CCTV cameras being hugely effective deterrents, we are now seeing more than 50% of Welsh homes taking some form of professional security measures.
Over the course of the past 12 months, we at Twenty4 Fire and Security have noticed a significant spike in the number of customers requesting home CCTV installation. This is why below, we have outlined a few things you need to know before installing CCTV at home.
The benefits of CCTV installation
When it comes to any form of additional home security, there are obvious benefits. But, when opting for CCTV, the benefits are far more significant and obvious.
Houses that have a home CCTV system can enjoy the following benefits:
- Enhanced surveillance 24 hours a day
- Access to live and historic CCTV footage via a smartphone app
- A decrease in the number of burglars targeting their house. This is because properties with a visible CCTV camera on the exterior are 80% less likely to be targeted by thieves
- Increased protection of vehicles that are on the driveway and parked outsid
- Reduced home and car insurance premiums due to the property being less likely of being burgle
- And much more!
There are many home CCTV options
When it comes to choosing a CCTV system and setup, it can be a bit of a minefield. With there being so many options to choose from, things can become overwhelming.
Here at Twenty4 Fire and Security, we help devise bespoke CCTV systems and infrastructures that reflect customers’ risk factors, location, property size and of course, budget. This, in turn, helps them to decide on whether they opt for HD CCTV, 4K CCTV, different CCTV brands and so on.
You’ll need to have regular CCTV tests conducted
Owning a CCTV system for the home is about much more than having a device installed and leaving it idle. What many people are unaware of is that in order for a CCTV system to be fully functional and uncompromised, regular maintenance work needs to be completed.
We advise that those who invest in a home CCTV camera system have a full maintenance test conducted at least once a year. For large properties with multiple cameras, 6-monthly should be considered.
