If you had your home security installed over 5 years ago and it hasn’t been upgraded since, then you probably need to update your home security. Technology in the realm of home security has come in leaps and bounds. It is more forward-thinking, security focused and effective than ever before.
Below we share just some of the signs that tell you need to update your home security.
- Low-Resolution Camera
If you have a CCTV camera on your home and it records in low resolution, then you need to update your home security. While the CCTV camera will still work to deter potential criminals, if a crime does take place, you will have grainy footage. You might have more than one CCTV camera, this is great because it means you will capture more footage. However, if it is bad quality footage, it might not really help. By updating your CCTV cameras, you can better protect your property. You’ll also have a better quality of footage if it is required.
- Alarm Works At Home
Home alarms are great as they alert neighbours if there has been a break-in. But what if your neighbours aren’t home? What if your neighbours think the alarm is faulty? The latest home security alarms enable you to look at your home from wherever you are, even on holiday. You will also be alerted of any suspicious activity. From this alert, you can check your home alarm and call the police if you are not there. While faults are unlikely, you can also disarm the alarm with the click of a button on your phone, no matter where you are.
- Your Alarm Is Your Only Security
How is your home secured? Is it just by the alarm that sounds at home? Think about the last time you heard a house or car alarm going off. What did you do? Did you call the police or ignore it? The reality is that alarms can go off all the time and we all just get used to the sound of them. We think it’s a fault or rely on someone else to deal with it. When it comes to your home security, you need to be able to rely on more than just the general public.
