Sleep soundly at night with home CCTV kits protecting you
Even though every homeowner would love nothing more than to sleep safely and securely at night protected by a security system, according to home security industry reports only 17% of homeowners have a home security system and use it on a regular basis.
Simply because it used to be prohibitively expensive to set up your own DIY home security system and if you decided to have a security team set up the system for you (and handle all of the monitoring) you had to spend a small fortune as well!
Today, nothing could be further from the truth.
It’s possible to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your property with a top-tier 4K CCTV kit at a fraction of the cost it would have run you even just a few short years ago. On top of that, you can monitor the entire system all on your own with a compact computer that cost you know more than hundred dollars – providing you with that blanket of security that you have always wanted to enjoy.
Here are some tips and tricks to help you out!
Surveillance is where your security kit needs to start
By choosing to invest in home CCTV kits you are setting up a blanket of surveillance that allows you to better understand threats happening outside your home before they penetrate inside while also recording incredibly important evidence that allows you to best serve the investigators when a crime has been committed so that justice is served.
4K CCTV kits often include motion sensor technology and night vision technology. This guarantees you are able to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your property on a 24/7 basis, and the 4K resolution guarantees that the images captured are always high definition enough to make identifying the criminals effortless.
Invest in high-quality security sensors
Of course, even the best 4K CCTV kit is going to have a hard time providing you with the surveillance and the security footage you need to be safe unless you have high quality sensors – usually motion sensors, but not always – that activate these cameras when a threat has been detected.
You’ll also want to invest in sensors that determine whether water, fire, smoke, or poisonous gas has entered into your home, it may even be advantageous to invest in sensors that let you know whenever doors or windows have been opened or breached.
The brain of your technology
At the end of the day, you’re also going to need to pair your 4K CCTV kit and your security sensors with a “security brain” – usually a compact computer system connected to your home network or a mobile data network (and ideally both) like the very popular Raspberry Pi solutions available on the market right now.
This is going to act as your home security command centre, recognizing signals it is being provided by security cameras, the surveillance sensors, and using that information to contact emergency services, the police, or verify that the recording equipment is running.
Combine all of these elements together and you’ll have the DIY security solution you deserve!
