Home CCTV systems are being pushed more and more by insurance companies in a bid to lower the chance of you making a claim and they reward you for your installation of a home CCTV system, that you can check in on remotely or has a recording facility, by lowering your annual premiums. Although in saying this, the increase in conviction in crimes has increased in Australia with the Federal and State Police attributing this outcome to the use of home CCTV footage. This makes a lot of sense, as criminals are quick to identify government and business sercurity systems and adjust their crimes around that, but to be adept with each homes security systems in the area would be near impossible.
So with this demand there has been an influx of systems that are DIY’s from JB HiFi and JayCar and Ebay, but most times there is a little twist to installing it, this ends up being installed by a locksmith or not properly at all. We get it though, if you are savvy enough to set up the camera system, position the camera and get everything going smoothly on your own these systems are great, the only concern after that would be replacement parts and upgrading of technology. This leads to a long term issue with these systems is that it is tricky for locksmiths to be able to adequately service a store bought alarm/CCTV system and replace parts that will support it, so sometimes (when the main port of the system is compromised) the system may need to be replaced. With our experience in the security industry we have seen a lot of these DIY camera systems come and go.
