Many home owners who want the idea of feeling safer have security cameras installed over their garages aimed at the driveway or street, possibly another one over their door entrance, or at the back door entrance of the home. Often times these security cameras are basic, and some simply record surveillance, while others show real time viewing. The idea of having these cameras allows the home owner to feel at peace knowing the camera is installed.
If an intruder sees the security camera he or she will do everything possible to avoid it, and in essence feel as though there are other additional security measures taken on the house. Such as door alarms or window alarms. In this case an intruder would initially leave the premises trying to avoid being seen or recorded.
Another good reason why a home owner would have cameras installed might be if they travel a lot, it will video tape the surroundings while they are away and if any type of vandalism or break in does occur, the appropriate measures can be taken.
Many apartment complexes have security cameras at the entrance for safety reasons. Each time a vehicle or person goes through the entrance it will aim for the tags of vehicles. This is often successful when vehicles that don’t belong in the complex are recorded or viewed.
So the fact remains obvious that security cameras being used do provide safety measures for a variety of people, even those who don’t really like the idea. They feel although in some ways it does interfere with their right to privacy they realize the increase of the acts of violence in the United States today. Therefore, they are not going to complain.
If a security camera is in a parking lot and their car is stolen in most cases it can be retrieved, not to mention they have that peace of mind of walking to their cars under surveillance and know that there is a lower risk of being attacked or abducted by someone intending to harm them or hurt them in order to gain access to their belongings or their vehicle. There’s just too much crime to not have security cameras in most places.
