While visiting family for Thanksgiving last year, I received some scary news: possible intruders had tried to force their way into a family member’s house on two separate occasions, and during one incident, had managed to fully break down the basement door before fleeing upon the arrival of police.
Since the family member lives alone, we knew that adding some extra security measures to the home were paramount. In addition to a new door and motion-activated floodlights, we opted for exterior-mounted infrared cameras that can quickly snap a photo of anyone on the property regardless of the time of day.
Purchasing several of the infrared surveillance cameras and paying for installation can run several hundred dollars, but if you feel you’re in need of additional security, the investment may be worthwhile in exchange for greater piece of mind.
