It was as recently as in June this year that a mass protest took place in Marseille, France against the installation of surveillance cameras, calling it an invasion of privacy. The same issue cropped up in Chicago, USA and the irony is that both these cities are known for high rates in crime, and a cry for increased public safety. The question here is where to draw the line between invasion of privacy and the safety of the public. While the public as a whole are becoming immune to street crime, they are definitely becoming more aware of personal safety and the growing threats of robberies and gruesome attacks of murder that are increasingly apparent with the necessity of installing security systems more essential than ever.
Even though this is the reality, most people are hesitant to set up a surveillance system due to their fear of having to invest a great deal money for this purpose. This is far from the truth because it’s within anyone’s budget to buy a videosurveillence camera over the counter from any store and it would not make a noticeable dent in the bank balance. Its only the high end camera de videosurveillence bought from a specialist store that would set one back more than a couple of hundred dollars in view of such systems being highly complex and set to provide comprehensive security cover to all areas of the home and garden.
If you have some knowledge in digital technology you will not find it too much of a problem to set up a camera de videosurvellience in your own home provided you have a camera, a computer and a web cam along with the relevant software which can be set up to cover the important entrances and exists in the house. Having such a system also means that you can monitor your home remotely from another computer outside your home and it will not cost you anything more than $100 for the complete security system.
For someone with a limited budget, installing a wireless camera de videosurveillence can be a good choice. A wireless system is not only inexpensive it’s also easy to install and is portable as well. This type of camera has to be connected to a VCR or DVR to record activities and is quite successful in preventing crime and also to identify the perpetrators after a robbery has taken place.
How successful any of these systems are, can be gauged by the fact that many crimes have been prevented from taking place even in places where fake videosurveillence has been set up. Although the cameras that have been fixed do not really record anything, they look sufficiently realistic to deter criminals from attempting anything. Fake systems however are not recommended because they do not provide real security for your home.
Safety and security of your home and family should be given pride of place in a background of high crime rates and installing a camera de videosurvellience is the best way to prevent any unauthorized or criminal acts from taking place. It’s always better to be safe than sorry and anyone that values his life and property will lose no time in taking action to provide a suitable system of videosurveillance for his home.
