Reasons for getting a home video surveillance system:
Protection from home invasion and burglary
While having a video surveillance system in your home does not itself prevent invasion and burglary, it does provide you with a detailed visual account of the invasion, enabling the home owner to better take an account of what was stolen or perhaps who was stealing. Also, making it known that your home is under surveillance may very discourage such burglars from attempting the invasion at all.
Home surveillance systems are great for monitoring children when you have to step into the other room, or want to make sure that the baby sitter is not being negligent or abusive. With the right features, you can even sync your PDA device to view the video, which is ideal for child monitoring.
Monitoring a bedridden loved one
If you are taking care of a loved one that bedridden, but can’t be constantly at hand, then having a home surveillance system is very ideal. You can monitor them from anywhere in the house, or when you are away and want to be certain that any nurses are not being abusive or negligent.
If you have service/repair men working in your home but can’t be there to supervise them, you can observe them with a surveillance system and be certain of any dishonesty or theft.
If anyone were to try to launch a lawsuit after being injured on your property, having a home surveillance system would allow you to verify with certainty the truth of the claims, enabling you to avoid the trouble of a lawsuit altogether.
