If your children are about to head off to University it's only natural to have concerns about their security. You can still help to protect your not-so little ones in their new accommodation. Here are a few reasons why you should consider getting them a security camera system.
43% of UK Burglaries Don't Involve Forced Entry
The Office for National Statistics reports that 57 percent of home break-ins in 2015-2016 involved a forced entry while 43 percent were burglaries that didn't require force. That means that a significant portion of burglaries occurred when a resident simply didn't lock their doors and windows. Make sure your children know how important these practices are in their new home. These statistics show that even in the face of simple safety precautions, most burglars will not be deterred. Which is why traditional security measures, especially in shared accommodation, should be boosted with additional visible security.
Video Monitoring Works
Police agree - video surveillance cameras are one of the most effective deterrents to burglars and home invaders. An alarm alone helps, but criminals know that without video footage, they can execute a clean getaway before anyone responds to the alarm. When you have video monitoring, a criminal’s likeness is captured forever. Talk about a disincentive!
