All over the US, Neighborhood Watch groups are looking to the CCTV industry to assist in keeping their neighborhoods safer. When it comes to calling the police about mischievous acts against your pink yard flamingos or the grand theft auto of your 7 Series BMW, you’ll need the help of a quality surveillance system if you don’t want to be stuck in the mud like your flamingos. Police departments can’t do anything about petty crimes, like yard gnome napping, without evidence.
A surveillance system can do so much more for you than just keep your yard art in place. A security system can monitor your home while you’re on vacation, protect belongings like cars or bikes, and more importantly keep your family safe. These are all good reasons to have a surveillance system like this throughout your neighborhood. Many communities use their clubhouse or a watch member’s home to store video footage, while placing network cameras on houses throughout the neighborhood.
If you are in a private community with a gated entrance you can easily store all the data at the gatehouse. The cameras can also watch different vehicles as they come through the gates and capture important information like license plate numbers, which may prove crucial in the event a crime is committed in your neighborhood. With communities growing larger than ever, a surveillance system may be just the solution your Neighborhood Watch group needs.
