It is always a good time to implement as many safety features in your home as you can get your hands on, but when it comes to when is the best time, then the answer is definitely summer. If you have been waiting for a good deal or simply procrastinating getting your home security upgraded, then there has never been a better time to plan for CCTV installation than now. Modern cameras used in CCTV systems are extremely advanced and reactive, with high frame rates, motion tracking and even night vision in some cases. Here is why this summer should be the season you choose to upgrade your security.
Crime Peaks In Summer
There is a lot of evidence both overseas in America and in Australia that summer is the peak period for crime. There could be a number of factors behind this, from heat driving up temperatures to the fact that more people are out and about during the warmer months. Whatever the case may be, as the peak period for crime approaches, CCTV installation could be a very modern way to be able to protect yourself from home invasions and burglaries, as well as just keep your mind at ease during those long, hot summer nights.
Emerging From Lockdown
Many states and territories across the east coast of Australia are just beginning to get out of lengthy lockdowns where the chance of home invasions was very low. As people start to get back to their everyday lives, the same old problems and traps will occur that lure people to crime. Preparing for a resumption of everyday life means preparing for the dangers that come with it, and that is why installing a CCTV system is prudent now — so don't put it off, as you never know when it will come in handy and save you thousands of dollars.
Plenty Of Stock
Because of the aforementioned lockdowns, a lot of people have held off on home upgrades and professional CCTV installation because the risk of a home invasion was low. The stock of these systems has built up, and so many security companies are offering very competitive rates to try and clear some of their inventory. If you want to find a great deal, you just have to take a quick look around to see that the industry is currently full of them and it shows no sign of stopping for now.
Hello. My dad is a locksmith. When I was growing up, we lived in a house behind the shop. I spent my childhood watching Dad cut keys, open car doors and demonstrate safes. Whether customers came early in the morning or at midnight, I always wanted to see what was going on! I'm a teacher now, but I help Dad when things become hectic. Holiday times are the worst. People lose their keys while they are away or misplace car keys in their hurry to reach the airport! I love being in the shop with all the keys, locks and safes. Dad always has some new product on display. Right now, it's an unbreakable bicycle lock. I started this blog to share my interest in locks, keys and safes with other like-minded souls. I hope you find it fascinating and inspiring. Please turn the key and step inside.
