Don’t Believe These Common Misconceptions About New Zealand Security Camera Systems

Installing a security system is like placing an extra eye and ear in your home or business that’s watching and listening – whether you're present or not. It makes it easier to prevent crimes or apprehend suspects after they've committed crimes. Many Kiwis are considering installing these types of units in their homes and businesses and you might be one of them. Here’s exactly what you need to know about the role that these cameras will play in keeping your home and business safe. After all, you don’t want to base your decision on anything other than fact.

  1. Thieves Will Do As They Please, Camera Or No Camera

You might believe that criminals are opportunistic and that they’ll attempt to enter a property even if it has deterrents such as high walls and gates. This belief doesn’t apply to homes with cameras. Intruders are less likely to break into a house with surveillance cameras as they know that this increases the chances of getting them caught. Even if they’re silly enough to try, you’ll have evidence to help you identify and incriminate them when the time comes.

  1. It’s Possible To Clear Up Grainy Footage

Most people assume that the quality of filmed security camera footage is useless, as it will be grainy and in black and white, making it impossible to identify anyone and anything. When in reality the quality of footage captured depends on the type of camera you own. Make sure you get a good quality unit or consult an expert technician for advice. It will help you avoid the disappointment of not being able to tell what’s happening when you watch your footage.
