I know a few people who've got them installed, they all are very happy with them.

 

I think alot of the time it brings back that sense of security that was robbed from you when a stranger broke into your house.

I have a set of webcams, internal, pointing out and uploading images to a NAS (which to be fair could be stolen if someone knew what they were doing).

If I could be bothered I could configure it to upload to the cloud, and I DO have the ability to monitor the cameras and recorded video remotely.

Thanks cyclone and geared. I know you can also get false or mock security cameras can't you ?

My friend on the next road had burglars last week and although she has a burglar alarm she forgot to switch it on when she went out. She is now thinking of having security cameras installed . I think she will be shocked at the price of supplying and fitting. Has anyone already got these cameras and are they worth it ? Your advice would be welcome.

 

If she didn't switch on her alarm , is she going to remember to check to see if the cameras are working if she had them ? They can fail ! Better to spend the money on physical security and set the alarm !

And as cyclone has pointed out they may take the recorder as well

I bought mine off Amazon last year and installed the system myself, It was easy to fit as well and I was surprised of the quality of the pictures especially at night where the images are clear.

My 2p worth.

Make sure all doors and windows are shut/locked and you have an alarm and set it, end of.

Yes you may have/want the latest system of video security but whats the point of seeing your hard earned belongings taken or smashed while sunning yourself on the beach!

If you alert the police they may not turn up for days, then they'll just give you sympathy and a crime number and go back to form filling.

Ooh, but I've got a good 1080p video showing their faces

"Have you?"

"YES"

"oh, but its not really that clear is it?" don't call us, we'll call you.

 

This happened to my parents, the video was stored in't cloud and locally and it did bugger all.

 

Sweet dreams x

You will need to read this guide if you install cameras on your house https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisations/documents/1542/cctv-code-of-practice.pdf

 

On my daily visits I see cameras on houses and have come to a chilling side conclusion that they are also used to control the occupants in the house to see if they go out or have visitors. You have to think what are the cameras for and what do they say when they are up. A crime ridden area or the home of a controlling abuser?
