Here’s why. You don’t need to have the latest, greatest, lowest light, highest resolution outdoor security camera system at your home. I know your stuff is important to you. If you had a $100,000 diamond in the house that everyone knew was there, I’d have different advice. The goal of outdoor security cameras and any home system is deflect and deter. Move them elsewhere. If a bad guy sees two relatively equal targets, i.e. he doesn’t know what’s inside but he thinks he wants it. One target has some type of security arrangement and the other doesn’t. You can bet the farm on which of the targets he’ll select.
Outdoor security camera systems are better and less expensive in the long run. They don’t require expensive monitoring contracts. They don’t require overly expensive equipment. They provide the same level of protection you can get from any security contract. Choose your system for the right reasons and you’ll feel better that you moved the bad guy on down the road with your outdoor security cameras.
Are you certain your home is safe and protected? An outdoor security camera system or security monitoring company could make you feel more secure in your home. Here’s how they work, what they cost, and what questions you need to ask when you are considering either of these options.
Crime in all parts of the world keeps rising. Break ins, home invasions, car invasions seem to occur regularly. You want to protect yourself, but the question is how. Its not really a cost issue either. Your need is to feel safe. Total security. Outdoor security cameras can be a solid part of that safer feeling you want.
The whole idea of any security system, including outdoor security cameras, is to serve to deter the bad guy. The idea is to make him pick another place to attack rather than yours. There is little we can do against a crook who has determined that our place is his next target. Except convince him through our security measures, that he should just keep moving down the road.
You’ll read a lot of information about the quality of outdoor security cameras. You’ll hear about the low light capabilities. You’ll even hear justifications as to why you should pay more for one camera over another based on some technical specification. Don’t be pulled into that discussion. For home use, you are NOT looking to capture the bad guys photo on screen. You aren’t looking to show up on an episode of CSI with your outdoor security camera footage and prove the bad guy took your stuff. Your goal is to help them move down the road.
Now that we clearly have our goal setting before us, lets determine the most effective way to use outdoor security cameras at your home.
