One of the best ways to protect your house from intruders is by installing a CCTV system. The installation of CCTV cameras has two main advantages; the first is as a deterrent and the second is as a proof of wrongdoing should this occur.
Having visible cameras on the exterior of your home can deter would-be criminals from attacking your home. This is because they will be aware that their actions are being caught on camera and recorded which should cause them to reconsider.
However, if your house is targeted by criminals and is broken in to or vandalised in any way, then having CCTV footage of this is beneficial. The first reason for this is it should help catch those responsible for the crime as it will provide you with images of them. The second is that once they are found, then the footage can be used in the prosecution case in a court of law; this significantly increases the likelihood of the criminal being punished for their crime.
Investing in a CCTV system is a lot cheaper than it used to be, making it a viable security option for most households.
