Protecting Your Home with Residential Security Camera Systems

If you own a home, I would recommend installing a residential security camera system. Home ownership is costly, but just because you pay a lot of money to own your house does not mean that criminals will respect that. In other words, your belongings may not be safe in your own home. If you need examples, here are three instances where home owners installed security cameras and found out that illegal or contract-breaking activities were happening in their homes while they were away.

The Curious Case

Back in 2016, a man living with his wife had their landlord and another man barge into his apartment while he was away from home. Luckily, the couple had already set up a security camera system to monitor their apartment before this happened.

When the landlord entered the apartment, the couple received a notification on their smartphone that their Nest security system had detected an abnormal level of noise in their apartment. The footage recorded by their security showed their landlord and the male stranger having intercourse on their bed. This same security footage was then turned over to the Police Department, which issued a warrant for the landlord’s arrest on charges of criminal trespassing, which is a felony, and misdemeanor obscenity.

Fishing for Criminals

Amit Sharma was not wronged by his landlord. Instead, Amit Sharma was a victim of repeated thefts in his rented house. But the thefts in his house never had any signs of forced entry.

Amit Sharma then set out to catch his thief by recording his home with his smartphone while both he and his wife were away. Sharma’s’ attempt to catch his thief was successful, and he discovered that it was his landlord’s son who had been stealing the couple’s possessions while they were at work.

Conclusion

Obviously, if you are a tenant you will need to talk with your landlord before arranging to install any sort of fixed security system. I also thought that I should include as a side-note that this article is not meant to scare you into thinking that all landlords (or their kids) are bad people, but rather to show you a few more reasons you may want to consider getting a security camera system.

Andrew and Mathew showed up on time and were very professional during the entire visit. Andrew assured me they would not leave hand prints or loose insulation on the floor after going into the attic to repair our security system. He kept his word and even used a Magic Eraser to remove smudges. Andrew seems very eager to meet the high expectations of his customers and although they may not be the cheapest, you get what you pay for! An honest young man attempting to bring a professional level to the industry. Thanks to Andrew and Mathew for your professionalism!

I called First Call to do a couple security cameras around the outside of my house & they did an awesome job Over the last couple of months I've ordered items online that have been shipped to my house & stolen right off my door step. Since this has happened multiple times I knew someone was watching my house & I had no other choice. Now when I am away from home I can monitor what is happening on my phone with the program they installed to make that possible. I went to UPS & delivered a couple empty boxes to my house to see if my plan would work & it did! They were on time and very professional. Andrew the owner was very friendly and helpful through it all I'm so thankful. I would definitely recommend them!
