Never heard of a doorbell camera before? Stuck in the old days where you had a big camera sticking to the roof of your house?

Then this article is for you and why you SERIOUSLY need to consider a doorbell camera for your home security.

Note I will not be recommending specific doorbell cameras as they change regularly and I suggest reading 1 or 2 doorbell camera review sites. One I use a lot is Supreme Security Cameras, they are honest always updated and to the point. If the technology changes or has any flaws then you need to know about it.

Here are our five top reasons you need to a doorbell camera for your home security in 2018

  1. People are buying more and more things online thanks to sites like Amazon and Ebay. We are becoming more and more home dwellers with more and more of our wealth spent at home we are now prime targets for criminals to steal stuff.  So it is no surprise that Package theft is on the rise. This is when you order something and it is kept on your porch for you to get at a later date. Of course items sitting on your porch is a huge target for criminals and you have to protect that. A doorbell camera is the best choice here. As if it is stolen you have 100% proof of who did it and a much higher chance of finding them
  2. Feel unsafe when the door rings and you don’t know who it is? Sure a keyhole can let you look outside but what if that person has an air rifle (that you bought and is already sitting on your porch!) and shoots straight through it? Boom you could be dead! So a door bell camera can be used to see from away from the door who is there and make it safe for you. You will also get much greater visibility on who it is and exactly what they are carrying.
  3. The latest doorbell cameras are all motion activated. This means unlike most other cameras you don’t have to watch hours of videos and go back to the exact point an incident occurred. They are very efficient.
  4. If you are away from your home and you want to monitor it remotely? No problem you can now even get the feed from your doorbell camera on your smart phone! What a time to be alive! Life is getting harder and harder for criminals!
  5. Last but not least, these cameras are so easy to install! They are designed to be super easy without the need of hiring a technician. Follow the instructions that will come with it, put on a pair of safety glasses and you are set!

Seriously doorbell cameras cost less than $100 to $200 at the most on Amazon. Read some reviews, see if they fit on your door and buy one. You’ll sleep easy at night and be a million times happier knowing how safe you really are!

Latest Home Security Tips and Tricks (Hint Things Never Change)

So it always pays to be safe than sorry!

Top Home Security Tips and Tricks For 2018

Display Security Signs

Even if you do not have a home security camera, if you show signs that you have one, people will likely believe it. Criminals too.  Upon seeing security signs in your yard, criminals will think twice before entering your home. This will drastically increase your chance of not getting robbed.

Get  A Dog

Not a cat but a dog, and it doesn’t have to be a guard dog. Nearly all dogs look after their turf they are very tribal and will look to protect those around them.

Now some dog breeds are better than others for guard dogs but a lot will agree that Pitbulls are the best. To train a Pitbull to be a guard dog can be a lot of work, but well worth it for the security.

Some other breads include a German shepherd,  bullmastiff, a Rottweiler, Staffordshire terrier, and even the Doberman.

Aside from being great for security a dog will also make you much more happy at home!

Having A Gun

Without a doubt having a gun at home will boost your confidence immensely and as such it should be thought about. Depending on what your experience is people tend to prefer a shot gun. As if you are in a rush the last thing you want to have to be able to shoot perfectly. With a shotgun you can shoot and even if you miss the spray will do the job for you.

Just remember if you do get a gun for home use to store it properly. Read some online gun safe reviews and then buy a gun safe. If your kids get hold of the gun or even worse the burglars get hold of your gun things can get a lot worse real fast.

Get A Metal Bar On Home Sliding Doors

Any sliding doors can be an easy target for burglars as they are easy to break. Unless you have a metal bar behind them making it very hard to get inside even if the glass is smashed. This will likely prevent burglars from getting inside after smashing the glass.

Get An Alarm Monitoring Service

Most local suburbs will have an alarm monitoring service that can connect your alarm system to a central monitoring center. Then if  your alarm goes off or one on the street the sound is sent back to the monitoring center and emergency services are dispatched immediately.

That is our top 5 things you can do to immediately increase the security of your home. Some are cheaper than others but you can never put a price on your home security.
