Cameras Provide A False Sense Of Security

Nothing is more dangerous than a false sense of security.

When we think of home invasions, we often imagine waking up in the middle of the night to a strange noise in the kitchen, tiptoe downstairs, flip on the lights and find a masked stranger in the living room. While this might make for great TV, this is not the reality for most break-ins.

In our experience, the majority of residential break-ins occur in broad daylight between 10am-4pm. Why? Because criminals know that this is when most residents are at work and school.  There is one burglary every 13 seconds in The United States. The absence of a home security system increases the likelihood that your house will be robbed by 300 percent.

Security cameras are ideal for parents, caretakers, travelers, and online shoppers.  However, it is important to remember that while cameras have many positive benefits they do not detect an active crime or notify the police that you are in danger. This is why you need a comprehensive security system that protects against active crimes.

Video monitoring is a key component in any comprehensive security package but when using cameras alone it can cause a false sense of security.  Having this false sense of security can cause you to let your guard down or reduce other security measures. Ultimately this makes the criminal’s job easier.

Random acts of violence often make us feel helpless and anxious. The news often reports stories where criminals were “caught in action” only to find out the criminals were never caught. The camera merely caught the actions of the criminal and unless the criminal is identified they can continue to burglarize and terrorize homeowners and business owners.

If a customer has a limited income we suggest they secure their home first. Start by securing the points of entry such as doors and windows. Once you have built a solid perimeter adding cameras is a great next step.
