Many homeowners see the value of getting exterior security cameras to keep an eye on the perimeter of their property. But if you don’t run a retail business, is there any point in thinking about security cameras in the home? There are a few reasons why you might want to consider installing interior cameras.
What many people don’t realize is that many crimes in the USA occur during the day, because people are at work, not at home, and thus burglars are more likely to be able to search a home with little chance of being interrupted by someone getting out of bed to investigate noises.
If a break-in occurs, security cameras inside the home can provide a wealth of evidence and investigative information for both you and the police. You’ll be able to see exactly how the break-in occurred, what rooms were invaded, the exact time, and get multiple views on the suspects, to get a good look at clothing, skin color, face, and other identifying features.
Security cameras in the home aren’t just for illegal invaders; they can also be used to keep an eye on people that come to your home. If a family heirloom goes missing from a shelf during a party, for example, a security camera that happens to be aimed in the right direction can show who did it and when.
For people that regularly work in the home, such as domestic cleaners, or pool maintenance, this can also ensure that they’re doing a good job. And when it comes to important services like babysitting, a camera ensures that not only can see to it that the children are being treated right, but that the babysitter isn’t taking advantage of the situation bringing friends over.
If you want to keep an eye on pets, children, or even elderly parents when you’re not there, an interior home security camera is the perfect solution. This is especially true for the elderly, where falls are one of the leading causes of injury and even fatality. If your elderly parent falls at home and is unable to summon help, it could be hours before anyone comes back home and sees what’s happened to get medical attention.
With an interior security camera, you can either check up regularly on the home to see what residents are up to, or, for specific cases such as the elderly, use motion detectors for notification. That way, if a fall does occur, today’s cameras are capable of wirelessly sending a notification to a device like your phone, and then letting you view that footage directly so that if need be, you can act and quickly get medical attention.
