Security cameras are an effective deterrent against burglars seeking an easy score. Most burglars will turn away from a Tucson home or business armed with security cameras because the all seeing eyes catch everything and doesn’t lie. For most, the score simply isn’t worth the risk. Those who do decide to tempt fate and attempt to gain unauthorized access to a home or business run the very real risk of having the recording entered as evidence if they are caught and brought to trial.
Burglars are Lazy…But Not Stupid
Burglars want to get in and get out as quickly as possible. The presence of security cameras means they need to spend more time planning their entry and their escape. A study conducted by the Alarm Industry Research and Educational Foundation a few years ago showed that 83% of incarcerated burglars stated they first determined whether an alarm or camera were present on the property before attempting entry. Of these, 60% said they would choose a target where these security features were not present. The study also showed that 50% of burglars would retreat from the burglary if they discovered security cameras during the course of the crime.
Protecting What Matters Through Proper Positioning Of Security Cameras
Most burglars enter residential homes via open windows or exterior doors. Covering these with a security camera denies the burglar access to these entry points. It is also advisable to install security cameras on stairs or within hallways. Should a burglar gain entry to your Tucson AZ property, these additional security cameras can limit their ability to move unseen throughout the structure. It is also a good idea to deploy a combination of both hidden and obvious security cameras. If a burglar sees one camera and covers the lens, they are likely to relax and feel free to move about…and miss the camera they don’t see.
When It Comes To Security Cameras – Quality Matters
Security cameras are only as good as the images it captures. For a camera to serve as an effective deterrent against a burglary, it must be able to capture high-quality images that can be used to apprehend suspects and use as evidence in a trial. Thus, it is worth investing in a high-grade system that will pick up the details that will matter to the judge and jury. An HD camera with 1080p resolution captures everything within 120 feet in the day and about 80 feet at night. This means that you will get a clear picture of the culprit long before they reach your Tucson front door. If the feed is monitored, it also buys extra seconds that can be used to alert law enforcement and direct them to the scene.
Upping the Ante
While security cameras themselves can provide a solid deterrent against a burglary, there are additional features that can further enhance their effectiveness. In addition to recording the feed and live-monitoring, the most effective systems are equipped with motion-sensors that trigger recording and lights, WiFi connectivity, wireless activation/monitoring, and even night vision. These features further tighten the security envelope surrounding a home or business and ensure that everything gets caught on camera. These features also make it possible for you to keep an eye on your home or business at all hours of the day and from wherever in the world you may find yourself.
