Find Out What’s Really Going On In Your Home Or Office With Hidden Video Cameras

VideoSurveillanceHome and office security systems might be well-intended ways to prevent crime, but many people wonder if there is something more that they can do when it comes to capturing it. Rather than taking the risk of not doing anything at all, some resolve to install small hidden video cameras so they can see exactly what’s going on.  Of course there are many occasions in which video camera surveillance would put one’s mind at ease. When a mother or a father leaves a child in a nanny’s care, for instance, a video camera would reveal what kind of care the child receives.  Likewise, cameras can be set up to monitor elderly parents who depend on nursing staff and other caregivers for their needs. If you notice items routinely disappearing from your home or office, you may also want to invest in a surveillance camera to see what’s really going on. You can also keep track of what’s happening at home while you’re at work or travelling. There are many advantages to using a security system, but there may be even more when they are coupled with video cameras.

A Chicago Area Case Study

In 2003 authorities in Chicago installed video cameras in two neighborhood parks.  One of the parks reportedly experienced more than 500 criminal incidents during a single month. The solution to the spike in crime that was occurring at the park was to install cameras.  They were conspicuous and park visitors noticed their flashing blue lights almost instantly. They resulted in a 20 percent decrease in crime the following month.  Surveillance cost the city nearly $190,000 in monthly fees, but just by having the cameras in place the city saved $815,000 in criminal justice expenses and victims’ loss claims. The financial benefits of having the cameras in the park more than covered the cost of installation and surveillance. In fact, the city calculated that they saved $4.30 for every dollar that they had spent on installation because so many crimes had been prevented.

Utilizing Hidden Video Cameras in Your Home or Office

Of course there is a difference in using conspicuous surveillance cameras and hidden ones. Rather than proclaiming your intention of preventing crime from happening in the first place, hidden cameras discreetly capture suspicious activities. When used the right way, a hidden camera can reveal exactly what’s going on when you’re not present to witness it in person. If you’re concerned about the care that an elderly parent receives in an assisted care facility or nursing home, you can install tiny cameras that cannot be detected by facility employees.  They reveal exactly how your parent is being taken care of.  By the same token, a hidden camera would also reveal if the nanny that you have employed to care for your children when you’re not present at home is caring for them appropriately. There might be occasions when you notice items go missing from your home or workspace.  Small hidden video cameras could record what’s happening when you’re not present and put an end to the mystery.

Hidden cameras can be used in a variety of ways in the real world—they’re not just made for private detectives or science fiction stories. If you’re wondering what’s going on behind the scenes in your home or office, install hidden video cameras. You can discover exactly what’s happening and resolve problems with proof.

    It is really important to have cameras at home most especially if your children are left behind with their nannies. You never know what is happening when you are away and your children might be in trouble without you knowing it. Having this hidden cameras is a way of securing your children as well as your properties.
