A Micromark survey of convicted burglars revealed that 67% of burglars would be put off burgling a house that had CCTV installed, yet only 9% of homeowners have CCTV.
Why have home CCTV?
- Visual Deterrent
Thieves and troublemakers can see the security measures from a distance and will normally give you a wide berth in search of a softer target. This ensures that their identity isn’t caught on camera for an easy identification.
- See who’s Outside without Opening the Door
Not expecting a visitor? Check your CCTV footage to see if your visitor really is who they claim to be. Reduce the risk of being a distraction burglary victim.
- Check on your Property Remotely
View your home CCTV via your smart phone or tablet computer to get instant peace of mind or simply check on the family pet.
- Records Events
This helps the authorities identify and prosecute offenders, reducing crime rates.
Did you know? Even if a burglar is wearing a ski mask and concealing their face, detectives and behaviour experts can analyse clothes, shoes and behavioural patterns to identify suspects. This would be impossible without CCTV footage.

- HD CCTV
- IP Cameras (or WiFi CCTV)

We would strongly recommend HD CCTV over more standard systems. In the case of a burglary or other crime, High Definition footage can help Police identify a suspect quicker due to a clearer image.
How do I see the footage?
A home CCTV system records digitally onto a hard drive with built in CD/ DVD writer, allowing you to view it live and retrospectively on a monitor.. The images are extremely clear, the system looks after itself and you can view old footage whilst still recording live!
Check your CCTV from your iPhones, iPads & Andoid devices!
We also recommend mobile apps that can be connected to your home CCTV system and allow you to watch recorded and live footage on the go.
Better yet, we can help with the configuration of this app when we install your CCTV system so it’s up and running before we leave!
With the growing reliability of mobile phones, homeowners find comfort in knowing that they can check on their homes from work or the pub!
Imagine the sticky situations that could be avoided if you checked your iPad or iPhone, saw some suspicious activity outside your home and had time to contact the police right there and then – instead of coming home clueless to a ransacked house.
Android users aren’t to worry though! The apps we recommend are also available on the Play Store on android phones and tablets.
Our response to the most common objection for home CCTV
The most common objection homeowners have against home CCTV systems is that they feel like showcasing this security measure advertises to burglars that there are expensive items in their home worth stealing.
In essence, they felt like home CCTV put a big red target on their home.
If you think about it from a burglar’s perspective, if he had the choice of targeting a home with a CCTV system that could capture his identity on camera, or a house without one, which one would really be the easiest target?
