I knew next to nothing about CCTV cameras just a few months ago. Now, I consider myself nearly an expert on them because of all the research I have done on them recently. It all started about three months ago when my neighbor’s home was broken into. While he was not hurt, the thieves did tie him up and steal most of his valuables. He was not able to identify them or even give a good description because he was so panicked when it was all going down, and I vowed to never be in a situation like that myself.
I felt so bad for him, because he really is a nice man. I also know he is intelligent and has a lot of common sense, so it was disturbing that an event like this could have such a devastating effect on him. I started looking at CCTV cameras that same day, because I knew if he froze during an event like this, anyone else can too! If my own memory cannot be trusted, then I definitely wanted to have something on camera for the police to use in apprehending anyone who tries to hurt me.
I know people think that I am going overboard like this, but try having something like this happen right next door to you. Imagine that it was just luck that made these thieves pick the house next door rather than your own, since both are so similar. I know chances are that it will not happen to me too, but chances were low that it would happen to my neighbor as well. I have CCTV cameras in my front and back yard and I also have one that scans the back deck that leads into the house. I hope I never have to use them to confirm someone’s identity, but I am thankful that I do just in case.
