Burglaries and break ins are more common than ever in this day and age because of the fact that the cost of living is going up so much that even people with full time jobs are finding it difficult to survive and pay up their basic bills. In addition to this, unemployment is on the rise and there are simply not enough of jobs for the number of people out there that are looking for jobs and although it is unethical and not the right choice, many young people are turning to crime to find the money they need to feed themselves and to feed their families. Many of these thieves and burglars do not necessarily mean any physical harm to you or your family but if you confront them in the act, the fear of getting caught and being thrown in to jail may cause them to instinctively attack. This is why there are steps that you need to follow to prevent your home from getting broken in to and if you suspect that there is a break in taking place in your home, it is important for you to handle it in a way that your safety is ensured. Things and money can be replaced but life cannot.
Invest in high end security
One of the best investments that you can make is an investment in a good security system and in a good camera. Ideally, you will want to have a real camera hidden so that it captures footage and also a dummy camera that is in a clearly visible place because this can work to deter burglars but some of them are bold enough to try and destroy your camera before they break in. If your real camera is destroyed, the police will have to go through a video camera data recovery process which can sometimes retrieve the data stored in it and sometimes, it can fail which is why you should always have your real camera hidden away from sight.
By having a hidden camera, you will not have to waste time with the data recovery process in case you are the victim of a break in and it will make the whole problem faster.Another thing to keep in mind is that many burglars will watch you, your lifestyle and your home for a while before they decide to break in. The reason for this is that they need to watch your home to identify where the potential cameras could be and they also need to check if you are worth stealing from.
