Free Security anti theft tips & advice: Theft is on the rise people, & the only way you can survive in this day & age is to be smarter than the dumb to average or very smart criminal. Try to use hidden covert cameras if you can, & this way a crook will not know that they are being recorded, & its much less likely that they will throw on a mask or disguise. If you have some real cameras installed presenty, make sure you also add a few hidden cameras some where else in the event that the crook covers your visible camera lens, tears it down, smashes it with a hammer, or cuts the cord on it.
You will then have extra footage needed to assist in the profiling of the crook. When using a hidden camera system, keep in mind on possible options of tactics, or counter measures to camoflauge weather people know you have cameras, or suspect you may have cameras. You could have have a bunch of working hidden cameras along with a bunch of low cost fake non working cameras to confuse the theif from trying to find the real camera, or even thinking that there may be other cameras hidden. Most likely the crook will discover that you have fake cams, & can get more daring also to steal or vandalize. The crooks will think they got you when they rip out the bad dvr & then not realize that there is a hidden camera system you still have recording in the mean time.Make sure the dvr is hidden very well, in an attic, basement or even in your trunk so it cannot be found, or else they can run off with not only all your stuff, but they will also get your dvr & cameras while they are at it. If you already have some fake cameras installed & everyone knows they are fake, its a good idea to set up 1 or 2 real-standalone self recording all in one dv cameras that are hidden to find out who you can really trust. We carry many options for that also. Its a great idea to set up a bunch of fake cameras, stickers, signs, & even a non working horn also around your property if you cannot afford a real system.
