Security is a big deal these days, especially in neighborhoods like mine. There are so many ways to protect your home and family, whether it involves CCTV cameras or simply keeping an eye on the kids as they play outside. But, does one really need a CCTV camera in order to feel secure at home?
Certainly, for professionals such as the police or insurance agents, having access to security camera footage can be a great way of determining what happened. However, it’s not essential. It’s true that most criminals are caught on camera at some point – so it can be useful evidence. But still, this doesn’t mean you need to buy CCTV cameras for home security.
In fact, there are so many other ways to achieve the same goal. There are burglar alarms, door and window locks, safes, and a whole host of other things that you can use to keep your family safe, without needing CCTV cameras.
I personally have an alarm system. Although it’s not a traditional burglar alarm – this one is more sophisticated and can even detect when someone moves inside the house. It sends text messages to my phone with live images from inside the house. And this means that I can always check who’s inside even if I’m not home.
It’s true that these systems are slightly more expensive than traditional ones. But if the safety of your family is at stake, it’s worth investing in something a little more sophisticated. And of course, there are CCTV cameras out there that can do a similar job. If you want to monitor the people inside your house then you can connect them to your smartphone and see what they’re up to when they think you’re not looking. For example, the Canary cam ($249.99) is your new connected home security camera. It lets you stream live HD video and audio to check on your kids or pets while you’re away. And it’s smart enough to send an alert to your phone if something happens while you’re not around.
However, if you need a more general way of keeping your property safe, there are CCTV security cameras that can do that too. For example, I’ve heard that there are already security cameras that you can attach to your car and they will automatically start recording if someone hits the vehicle.
This means that the police will be more likely to catch the person who is responsible for the damages. And in my own family, we use this kind of technology to keep track of our cars.

On top of that, there are still other alternatives to CCTV cameras. For example, motion sensors can be used to make sure that your home is secure. And if you don’t like the idea of putting cameras in every room, you could use an LED light that can be turned off and on by touch.
All these additional actions will definitely make it harder for criminals to enter your house or car – and they’re usually cheaper too.
