5 Ways Security Cameras Can Make Your Home a Safe Haven

Keep your family and your precious property safe and secure.

5 Ways Security Cameras Can Make Your Home a Safe Haven

Our homes are a safe and sacred place where we lay weary heads and enjoy personal or shared space. That's why keeping the feeling of trust and security is so important. Many people have security cameras monitoring their house, either as a warning to intruders or allowing for peace of mind, and those are only two of the many reasons why having a camera is something to consider. If you're on the fence about getting one, here's a list of the top reasons people invite these integral systems into their homes.

A Great Deterrent

Studies show that outdoor security cameras are a huge red flag for anyone considering a break-in. No one wants to risk their face being captured in the process of a crime, and it's much easier to find an alternative target than risk exposure. Avoid the worst-case scenario, and protect your valuables with the best and most effective deterrent on the market. The price of a security system is little in comparison to what could happen without one.

Keeping Track of Loved Ones

While it might be an invasion of privacy to spy on your significant other, keeping track of your pets has never been easier. We all worry about accidentally leaving a pantry door open for a ravenous feline or curious puppy. Instead of racing home or worrying all day, you can simply check the display of a Savant System. Technology has paved the way to keep your loved ones safe and allow you to take some stress out of your day. Even for children, you can feel good knowing they are safe in bed. With these systems in place, you never have to be kept up at night thinking about the things you can't control.

Answering Every Door Is Old School

Ever been disturbed while sitting down watching TV in the afternoon or had a knock in the middle of the night? One is an inconvenience, the other mildly terrifying; in both situations, a front door camera like DoorBird is the best way to alleviate any concerns of who is at the door. DoorBird is a door intercom and camera system. You can view and answer using the DoorBird app, or have it integrated with your Savant System so you can check your front door from a tablet and never worry about getting up for any unwanted solicitors again. 

Save Money on Insurance

Many homeowner's insurance companies offer discounts for homes that have security systems installed. Whether to protect from risks of fires or document any loss of property, a home security camera keeps your house safe in more ways than one. The discounts that companies offer customers vary depending on the system's features but even without a discount, these types of systems still protect your investment. 

The Little Things

Not everything is a dire situation, and sometimes you just want to monitor your homes in small ways. Making sure you didn't leave the lights on and being able to turn them off with home automation. Anxiety can rear up in many ways, and being able to see your property on live footage can help.

Having a DoorBird Intercom and Camera System is security access at your fingertips.
