Home security cameras for the holidays

Posted By Dave Simon, Tuesday, December 06, 2011

In seasons past, we may have been less willing to suggest that a homeowner consider installing a video camera system as part of holiday protection measures. Annually, we make a point to share security tips because the end of the year presents a time where gifts are around the Christmas tree, creating situations where burglars may consider breaking in.

What’s happened in terms of video surveillance systems is their growing acceptability in homes. We all know that commercial establishments have accepted cameras for years, and used them as a deterrent and to help share images with law enforcement to capture criminals. But homeowners have been less willing to put video systems in. There were two main reasons for this: high cost of the product and installation, and privacy issues (not wanting a camera watching as you walk around your own house).

Both those impediments have slowly evaporated, and now there has been a trend of homes installing video surveillance systems. Given the time of year, the gift of video security might be something that ESA members could suggest to prospective customers. What video offers beyond a traditional system is the added reliability of providing evidence in the apprehension of a perpetrator. Now THAT’s a nice gift.

See what your customers think. It might be just what they’re looking for.
