Ever thought about having a hidden camera installed on your property? Whether or not you have, there are some important reasons for having one around. Hidden cameras are like having an extra set of eyes for when you’re not around. Below, I’ve made a top 5 list on why you should own one.
Identifying a Burglar in Home Theft
Protecting your home from burglars is a no brainer for keeping a hidden camera installed. According to an article published by Nationwide, "a home burglary occurs approximately every 15 seconds in the United States. About 30% of private homes have security systems. Homes without security systems are two to three times more likely to be broken into." With a hidden camera installed, you’ll be able to identify the thief and keep them away from your property. Studies conclude that you can reduce the chances of a home burglary if the thief is aware that you have a camera in your home. You can put up a sign where it is easily visible stating that your house is being monitored by cameras.
Keeping an eye on the nanny or babysitter could easily top the list for some people. Just having that peace of mind that your child is safe in the hands of that new babysitter you hired last week is just enough reason to install a hidden camera. The Smoke Detector HD Camera is perfect for situations such as this one. Not only does it come with motion detection recording features, but it also allows you to view remotely from anywhere you have an internet connection.
There are many cases of elderly adults getting abused in their own homes, their caregiver’s homes, and in the nursing homes that are responsible for their care. In the U.S. alone, more than half a million reports of abuse against elderly Americans reach authorities every year, and millions more cases go unreported, according to an article published by helpguide.org. With a hidden camera installed and the elderly’s consent of course, concerned loved ones can make sure that their elder is receiving the care that they need.
Cleaning Staff/Home Employees
I’m sure there’s a few of us out there who hire maids, butlers, or cooks to help us around the house on a daily basis or every now and then. And when we do, it’s normal for us to want to protect our valuable belongings that we keep in our house, such as jewelry, or valuable collectables. The Alarm Clock HD Hidden Camera can easily be mistaken for a regular alarm clock. Placing this hidden camera in the field of view of where the valuable item is being kept is a great way to keep an eye on it.
Now, as a horror movie enthusiast, I just had to put this one on the list. Also, an article by The Huffington Post shows “that 45 percent of Americans believe in ghosts, or that the spirits of dead people can come back in certain places and situations.” I know a lot of you remember how the protagonists in the Paranormal Activity movies used their home surveillance cameras to capture ghostly behaviors. Or from a more recent movie, The Visit, where the young grandson finds a good hiding spot for his camera so that he can document his grandmother’s strange and frightening behavior throughout the night. Yeah, well, it’s basically the same idea here. Any suspicions of paranormal activity in your residence can be put to rest with a well-hidden camera with built in night vision such as the Hidden Camera Clock Radio.
Hopefully my top 5 list has shed some light on the benefits of owning a hidden camera. I know there’s a ton of other ways we can utilize them.
Do you have any ideas that haven’t made the list?
