Throughout time, home invasion has always been a serious and dangerous problem for home-owners and businesses alike, even in antiquity. It is a persistent problem that isn’t going to go away anytime soon. So we`ll look at the value of the home security camera system for your peace of mind.
For those in earlier centuries, on up to the beginning of the 19th century, security measures included strong doors, lock and key, barring and bolting doors, bars on doors and windows and of course guards.
Whilst these things were the mainstay of security in those days, they are today as well. However, for the vast majority today, this kind of quality has gone down and methods of entry in cases of invasion has increased.
It has become far easier over the last two centuries to overcome the lower-quality traditional security devices through forceful entry.
As in the days gone by, invasion has, and still poses dangers ranging from theft to loss of life in the various invasion related crimes.
In the modern age, none of this has changed and in fact, in most countries, poses serious threat for homes and businesses alike.
Some of the earliest contraptions included mechanical devices that sounded bells and whistles and even more silent but equally effective trigger devices in wealthier homes and businesses.
Though the afore-mentioned techniques (strong doors, walls, locks, bolts and barred windows, etc) still serve their purposes in discouraging break-ins, it still occurs, especially in buildings that lack modern electronic security systems.
These stand highly vulnerable to invasions and almost always involve forced entry, especially sliding glass doors that can be shattered, as well as regular doors that can be jimmied, kicked in or lock-picked, and unprotected windows that can be broken and opened from the outside.
Fortunately, in our modern-day, we have highly effective systems that, not only alert occupants of homes and businesses but come with many other features that outshine any previously-invented systems.
This Article will discuss the dangers of making do without the best-designed security systems for modern times.
It will give a very short history of security systems that worked well in their time but are now obsolete, some compelling statistics on burglary in the worst countries for this type of crime, a quick review of the type of systems that are still available in stores – and why you should avoid them, finally the best type of system you can get today…
The Value of the Home Security Camera System
Camera-based systems offer some of the best protection money can buy, especially since the cost of electronic surveilance technology has dropped significantly.
They offered (and still do) an added measure of security. Some are more affective than others but most work on the same principles.
They provide alarm systems, sometimes silent alarms that are meant to go off alerting local law enforcement, alerting occupants and video the invasion in progress, providing valuable evidence.
This is the beauty in modern systems that we have available in all shapes and sizes and for any application needed by users.
