Maybe you always ask yourself: ” What is all the fuss about Camera Security Systems?”

Good question! There are increased security concerns in homes as reports of crime, rape, violence and abuse increase. Desperation, abuse of drugs and bad behaviour due to wrong habits are pushing individuals to commit crimes and indulge in activities which society does not make approve of.

This then raises a fundamental question: how secure is your home? 

Having worked so hard to build your own home or move into the exclusive neighbourhood you wanted since your first job, you have to claim and secure your progress in life. It is advisable to install a camera security system in your home if you live in affluent estates such as Runda, Muthaiga, Muthangari, Karen, Riat Estate and section 58 in Nakuru.

Installed security cameras would go a long way to give you certain assurance and peace of mind. It’s not always you are at home with a rungu to guard your property, or awake at night to monitor trespassers and idlers lurking around your space.

Benefits of Installing Security Cameras in your Home

1. Reduce Crime by deterring Criminals

Installed security cameras pose a big hindrance to criminals from carrying out pre-planned crimes. The cameras can help trigger alarms, identify the individuals and make them abort their operations once they note a camera security system is in place. Evidence gathered through the video recording assist in prosecution, investigations and re-claim of stolen or vandalized property.

2. Law Enforcement and Investigations on Crime

Police play an important but difficult role in maintaining law and order. With increased crime rates, they get overwhelmed looking for criminals and solving crime cases. 

The CCTV cameras installed in homes and houses record incidences as they happened. Police can use these videos and images to pursue, capture and prosecute the culprits in the law courts.

3. Check on Activities at Home while away…

As a career person, you might be forced to work late into the night or leave early in the morning for work. Wi-Fi-enabled cameras and IP Cameras would be handy for you to check on the events at home, even while you are away in the office or on another business trip in a different location.

Through remote monitoring, you will be able to check on live updates or check back on recorded video. Also, you can have live conversations with the children through the speakers and cameras or give instructions to the house help.

4. Claim Insurance Compensation

In most modern homes and houses, expensive furniture, electronics and equipment form part of the household. These items are costly and can be insured against theft or incidence such as fire or vandalism. You can claim compensation from insurance companies in case certain losses as covered. Security cameras provide footage and evidence which you can use to validate your claim.

5. Low Maintenance Cost

You can add or replace the cameras over time as technology advances and needs change.
