I am a huge advocate of personal safety. I am certified in first aid as well as CPR. While I am thankful that I have never had to use those skills, I am equally thankful that I know them in case I do. I also have a Hikvision CCTV system at my house, complete with cameras at every door. I also have a camera pointing to my backyard, and it is equipped with night vision so I don’t miss a thing. Even if crime was not a rising problem, I still want to know what is going on with my own property, so I would have it regardless of statistics.
The sad reality though is that the stats are showing that crime is on the rise. While there are years where it will actually decrease, it always comes back around. I myself don’t understand why someone would rather risk their freedom rather than go out and work themselves, and I suppose I never will. While I don’t understand, I can definitely do something about it to protect myself and my property. Having a security system just adds another layer of safety to my family and myself, and the only person that could possibly offend would be the one who means to cause harm to us.
The system that I have is really nice too. I was able to go online and get a great deal on it because it is just so much more competitive online. In addition to a great price, I was able to get quality equipment. Hikvision is a leader in security equipment, and I am glad that their cameras are what is protecting my family and myself. I know there are no guarantees that this will make us safer, but I like our odds a whole lot better with them.
