A home invasion is a terrifying situation to be involved in. Thankfully, having additional security tools installed in your home can prevent home invasions and keep you safe.
Practical security items like window bars and security gates on doors can reduce the likelihood of a home invasion. So can reinforced doors, dead bolt locks and interlocking doors. In addition to physical security, having a monitored alarm system and monitored video surveillance cameras installed is crucial.
Installing security cameras and having them connected to a central monitoring station provides extra protection and additional peace of mind. The video footage recorded by such a system can even be used to identify criminals and prosecute them for their crimes.
Monitored security cameras are watched over at all times by trained staff. When a trouble condition is spotted, the central staff can take steps to resolve the situation. They can view live and pre-recorded video to determine what is taking place at the home. They can even contact the authorities directly and explain the situation to them. This ensures that the police will arrive quickly, since they’ll know that an active crime is taking place.
Protecting your home with a centrally-monitored alarm system and surveillance cameras is a proven way to deter criminals from striking, as they know that the alarm and cameras are likely to catch them in the act and make escaping without being identified significantly more difficult.
