In times past, a peephole was the perfect form of security. If someone rang the bell or knocked on the door, a peephole allowed the person inside the home to see who was there before answering. In fact, this method is still in place in most hotels around the world. However, security cameras now give residential clients superior security. What are the advantages?
Why Video Intercom Systems Are Becoming Popular
First of all, a highly visible camera sends a clear message to would-be robbers—“This home is secure!” No one wants to be caught committing a crime on video. However, having a security camera at the front door does more than just allow the police to track down the bad guys if a package gets stolen off the porch. The homeowner can use the video feed to get a clear image of who is at the door. Often, this can be done from a mobile device so that the homeowner doesn’t even have to approach the door and can immediate signal for help in case of danger.
This feature works in tandem with a monitoring service that can handle the SOS should the homeowner be concerned about the person at the door (whether a shady-looking stranger or an ex with a history of violence). The video feed can provide peace of mind for someone alone in the house and reduce the number of false alarms that could be triggered.
This is also something that homeowners are looking for. Therefore, if a person wants to sell a home, a video intercom system for seeing the doorstep can be just one more selling point that works to enhance the home’s value.
