2. Evidence

In some cases, criminals will be very determined to break into a residence. When this occurs, you’ll want to have as much evidence as possible to help with the police investigation. If you do not have a security and CCTV system, there may not be any proof showing the person who broke into your home. With video and image evidence, the criminal may be able to be caught, preventing further crimes and resulting in the return of your goods.

3. Insurance

Security and CCTV systems aren’t just good for recording criminals entering the house. It can also be good for insurance purposes. If you need to file an insurance claim after your break-in, you will be able to file the footage from the security cameras.

Video surveillance can also be used for household insurance loss assessing claims. In these instances, you will need to provide images of what the household looked like before any damage. People will often have not thought about this and will be unable to provide images of how a household looked, which can impact the insurance claim. With security and CCTV installed, you will be able to recover footage from before any accidents happened, which will assist in any claims.
