Why you Need CCTV
South African citizens are spending more on private security than ever before as protecting our families and businesses is a top priority for most of us. One of the most effective ways for early warning and detection systems is CCTV camera installations.
The number one benefit of a CCTV system installation is the deterring of criminals. Various studies have shown a significant reduction in criminal activities in areas with camera surveillance. Pointing cameras towards points of entry is the most strategic placing of a CCTV device, as well as perimeter surveillance.
The ability to monitor your premises from anywhere in the world as well as linking your system to your local security company is an added benefit to the standard alarm system. This offers peace of mind that your property is being watched and you have some control in the palm of your hand.
Reduced Insurance Premiums
Another great benefit is the potential reduction in insurance premiums. The better your security system, the lower the risk of potential criminal activity, e.g. burglaries.
Contrary to what you might think, CCTV systems are cost-effective. After installation, the system requires minimal maintenance and repairs when installed correctly. By ensuring that the cameras are cleaned from debris and software updates are done regularly, your system will give you years of top performance.
New technology also reduces false alarms by up to 90% by distinguishing between human and vehicular movements, also eliminating false alarms caused by the movement of animals, plants and dust particles.
In conclusion, securing your home or business may not be as expensive or as complicated as you might have thought. Securing now may benefit you greatly in the long run.
