Over the last couple of years security systems have become a more common feature inside and outside people’s homes.
The lower cost of CCTV systems have made them accessible to many more people and the IP cameras and fairly easy to set up so you don’t even need to use a specialist company to install them. Along with IP cameras, lots of people are investing in CCTV doorbell systems. The most well known system is called Ring, but there are others out there that work in a similar way. The doorbell can be set to show you a live image of who is at your door and the two way communications systems will enable you to have a conversation with them. It can be set to switch on and record footage when the door is pressed or when motion is detected. Not all makes abs models will offer the same functionality so it is important to check what the different devices will and won’t do.
Another advantage of having the doorbell system is that no one know when you are in or when you are out as you can answer it remotely from anywhere. This stops people being able to find out whether your house is empty or not.
