What is Alarm monitoring and how does it work?
Monitored or unmonitored security systems. What is the difference?

If all homes in one street are to install the security surveillance cameras, then the entire street will be closely monitored and will discourage intruders to commit any illegal act within your locality. It will also be easy to alert you of an ongoing criminal activity and giving you enough time to alert relevant law enforcement agencies for them to respond and take the necessary measures to stop it. It will also be easy and fast to catch criminals for an already committed crime by use of recorded footage from these cameras.

If perpetrators are aware that a certain neighborhood has cameras installed in every home, then chances of them intruding there are very small, if any.

Monitoring the entire neighborhood by using outdoor cameras

One of the advantages of having outdoor security cameras in the entire neighbourhood is that law enforcers and other security agencies can use the multiple footage from the several surveillance cameras in that neighbourhood to get leads that will help them solve crime and apprehend the culprits. The cameras in different houses provide different angles of filming and recording of the illegal activities and the perpetrators, thereby aiding in facial recognition and identification of the criminal easily and quickly.

Saving neighboring homes through fire alarms

In the unfortunate incident that there is a fire in your community, the next most important measure apart from putting it out is to prevent the fire from spreading to other neighboring houses. This is so especially in cases where houses are built so close together or in apartment blocks where walls are shared.

You will be in a better position to know the onset of a fire and immediately report to the fire department if you have a fire alarm installed in your house. The alert from your fire alarm and the quick response from the fire department will contain the fire and stop it from catching other houses.

Easy intrusion exposes a community’s weak areas

When a thief breaks into your home taking with them assets and valuables and gets away with it, they become aware of the loop holes in security in your area and this gives them confidence to plan and stage another attack in your neighborhood.

Whereas, if your house was equipped with security surveillance cameras, it would have either frightened the criminal from carrying out his malicious intention or in instances where they actually commit the crime the cameras would have helped the authorities to catch the culprit and serve justice to the victim and avert future possible crimes.

Community surveillance

Once you have a security surveillance system installed in your house, let your neighbors know so that they don’t suspect you of invading their privacy. Also talk to them about having their homes equipped with security cameras as well. They also stand to benefit a lot from this communal security surveillance approach as potential intruders will be kept off by the site of so many surveillance cameras.
