Video surveillance in private dwellings

Video surveillance - only for banks, casinos and companies?

Affordable prices, new network technology and easy usability mean that you can even use video technology from ABUS in your own home or apartment. Video surveillance is easy to install and can help improve the security of homes, those living there and their property.

You should specifically protect these areas in your home

Outdoor areas: yard and garden

Make sure you are always on the ball when it comes to knowing what is going on on your property. Deter criminals from the outset. Potential vandals or trouble-makers will keep away from your property once they run the risk of being recognised or caught in the act. If your video technology goes unnoticed, you can nab the perpetrators and call them to account.

Entrance areas: main entrance and apartment door

Even if many burglars prefer entering through windows, doors and door locks are often also a target. For example, some thieves "pick" locks. Additionally, a surveillance camera can record uninvited guests, such as pushy sales people or hawkers.

Your living space: home and family

Use video surveillance in your living space, to monitor burglars or theft by cleaning staff, tradespeople and other service providers. Video cameras allow you to keep an eye on your children or elderly relatives and quickly come to their rescue in an emergency.

Secondary living spaces: garages and cellars

The most recent crime statistics prove that car and bicycle theft is on the rise. Organised thieves usually target luxury vehicles. Effective video surveillance makes life hard for thieves. By using your video cameras in conjunction with an alarm system, you can identify criminals by network camera and also alert help by siren or phone to achieve maximum security.
