Traditionally seen as expensive and complicated, outdoor cameras are sometimes overlooked as a domestic security option. Is it time to take another look?

Many people think that installing an outdoor camera at home is going to be expensive to install and difficult to operate, so they don’t consider it a convenient security option.

Fortunately, thanks to recent innovations in digital tech, camera-based security has come a long way. So, to help you make an informed decision, we take a closer look at the benefits of installing security cameras around your home.

Security cameras are the most effective deterrent against intrusion

According to a survey of ex-convicts, a camera system installed on a home is the most effective deterrent against burglary* – even more so than a loud four-legged friend or an alarm. So, by simply having cameras visibly present at your property, you’re less likely to be burgled.

Security cameras are more affordable than ever

In years gone by, a home security system was the preserve of celebrities and millionaires. The cost of components and installation were simply too expensive for the average homeowner to consider. But, thankfully, times have changed. Today, a robust outdoor system costs less than an average gaming console.

Many camera systems don’t require specialist installation

Wireless technology has made it easier than ever before to install outdoor surveillance. So, instead of trailing cables behind walls and working through endless instruction manuals, a competent DIYer can get a system up and running in a few hours.

Outdoor cameras are now multi-functional

Have you ever wanted to know what’s going on at home when you’re out at work? Well, multi-functional home cameras, such as the Yale All-in-One Camera lets you do just that with two-way talk, motion-detection, spotlight and siren – all activated from your smartphone, anywhere in the world!
