Why you Should Use Front Door Security Cameras

December 5th, 2018

Were you aware that most burglars during a home break-in will actually gain entry from the front door opposed to other areas of the home? This makes the front door of your home one of the most vulnerable areas when it comes to home break-ins which makes it even more important to have the proper surveillance at your front door.

The following are just a few reasons as to why you should use front door security cameras at your home:

Deter Burglars

First, you will find that if a burglar sees a camera at the residence, most of the time they will move on out of fear of being caught on camera. Burglars are more opportunist than anything, so when you make your cameras visible from even the street, you are effectively deterring them.

Monitor Deliveries to the Home

Another common problem homeowners face is having their packages stolen from their front door. You are at work and receive the notification that your package was successfully delivered. However, you arrive at home and find that there is no package waiting for you at the door.

If you had a front door security camera, you would be able to look through the footage to see if a) the package was actually delivered as your message stated, or b) someone stole it right from your doorstep before you made it home to retrieve it.

See Who is Knocking

Another benefit of using front door cameras is being able to see who is at your door without having to open the door. It could be several different kinds of people at your door from a burglar to a salesperson. Avoid a potentially dangerous situation by being able to monitor your visitors from the safety of your home.

Check on the Kids

If you are at work when your kids arrive home from school, you will be able to use your front door cameras to check if they made it home safe. Some systems will send you an alert when someone is at the door, so you will be able to see them when they reach home as well as speak with them using a 2-way audio feature.

Identify Intruders and Other Suspicious Activity

When you have a front door camera that is angled just right, you will be able to see who is at the door, who tries to break in, as well as see the street and other important angles. The footage can help identify an intruder or catch someone in the act of another crime. Just make sure that the camera is visible from the street and is getting footage from multiple angles.

Peace of Mind

Finally, front door security cameras offer each homeowner peace of mind knowing that they are actively protecting their home and family. You will be able to sleep better knowing that your home is being monitored at all times and if something were to happen, you would have the footage to help you.
