It’s been nearly a whole year since the start of the pandemic, and one thing that has kept the nation going is our “walk of the day” with our four-legged companions. During this year we’ve seen a surge in demand for pets, mainly dogs, to help people cope throughout the lockdowns. This in turn has seen a rise in prices for puppies which of course has attracted greedy breeders but also burglars and opportunists.
So how can CCTV help?
One idea that can hugely help to keep your pet safe is the use of CCTV. Having a CCTV system installed on your house – or outhouse if you’re a breeder – is a great visual deterrent, which should hopefully steer burglars away. In addition to being a deterrent, it certainly helps identify such thieves which will be crucial in the unfortunate event of your pets being taken when you are not home.
I want to install a CCTV system; how do I know what system to choose?
Choosing a system can be quite daunting as there are thousands of models of cameras, styles and accessory items on the market, not to mention the different types of technologies involved.
