The Benefits of a Home Security or CCTV System While on Vacation

Did you know that in the United States, a home burglary occurs every 13 seconds? Just think about it. That’s almost four burglaries a minute, 240 burglaries an hour and almost 6,000 burglaries per day.

In reality, it can happen to you. 

While you’re on vacation, the last thing you want to be worrying about is the possibility of intruders breaking into your home and leaving with valuable money, jewelry, electronics, medications, tools, furniture, and other expensive household items. However, a state-of-the-art home security camera system from FutureComm can help alleviate those concerns to keep your Pittsburgh home safe and secure until you return. 

Below are four major benefits to home security camera or CCTV system. 

Enhancing Your Home’s Security 

According to, homes without home security camera systems are up to 300% more likely to be broken into. In addition to outdoor visible cameras that deter and prevent crime, home security systems are equipped high-tech password protected alarms that – if triggered – will send automatic alerts to both your phone and local authorities.

They’re easy to use, controllable from anywhere on your smartphone or tablet and broadcast in crystal clear high-definition visuals in both daylight and darkness. You won’t miss anything while you’re gone. 

Keeping Track of Your Kids

When our teenagers hear Mom and Dad are going away on vacation without them, one of the first thoughts that usually comes to mind is … it’s time to party! With a home security camera system, however, your kids won’t be calling their friends to come over for a party that could cost you thousands in underage drinking fines (if it’s busted by the police) or damage to your home. 

More importantly, you can monitor their safety from sun-up to sun-down while you’re gone. 

Monitoring Household Staff

Vacation usually requires hiring people to help maintain your home while you’re gone. Most of the time these are people you know and trust, but if you’re paying them, you’ll want to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. Home security camera systems give you the ability to monitor babysitters, dogsitters, landscapers and housekeepers to keep them accountable under your watchful eye. 

Collecting Evidence

If your home does get broken into, our home security camera systems can help you provide evidence to the police during their investigation. With visual evidence, they’ll be more likely to identify potential suspects. Plus, video recordings are considered indisputable proof and highly valuable tools in criminal courtroom cases.
