If you've been considering a surveillance system upgrade, two aspects to assess seriously are the addition of exterior cameras and whole-home security system integration.

1. Deterrence of Criminal Activity

The most immediate benefit of exterior cameras is their ability to deter potential criminals. A surveillance camera's mere presence and visibility make many would-be intruders think twice before attempting access to your home. 

As crime rates have increased in many metropolitan cities, this deterrent effect is particularly valuable. Be sure exterior camera features include motion detection, license plate and facial recognition, and remote footage access for extensive protection. With personalized, informative alerts, you are in control and in the know of your home’s safety at all times.

2. Enhanced Monitoring and Surveillance

An upgraded surveillance system allows for comprehensive monitoring of your Philadelphia property from inside to outside. You’ll have a live feed of activities that enable you to spot any suspicious behavior promptly. Even when you're not physically present, you’ll know what’s happening, where, and with whom across your property!

3. Evidence Collection

In the unfortunate event of a crime, exterior surveillance cameras provide crucial evidence for prosecuting crimes. High-quality video footage can help law enforcement identify perpetrators, and this evidence can be invaluable during legal proceedings.

4. Increased Safety and Peace of Mind

Knowing that your property is under constant surveillance can provide a sense of safety and peace of mind. This is particularly true in busy cities and suburbs where the hustle and bustle can sometimes bring unwelcome surprises. 

Plus, with a surveillance system expertly integrated with your ELAN home control system, you can rest easy knowing your property is secure in many ways. For example, you can monitor footage remotely from your smartphone, program your outdoor lighting to turn on automatically at dusk, and even instruct shades to lower in the evenings for additional privacy from peering eyes. 

5. Lower Insurance Premiums

Some homeowners may not know that incorporating a surveillance system on their property could lead to reduced home insurance premiums. In the long run, this can result in significant savings over time!

Incorporating an upgraded security and surveillance system is a strategic move toward enhancing your family’s safety. If you’re ready to invest in your peace of mind and protection, it’s time to connect with our team here.
