Learn How Today’s Smart Security Systems Protect Against Intrusion

According to SafeWise, a burglar strikes about every 30 seconds in the U.S., amounting to about 3,000 burglaries every day. Yet, despite this rather alarming statistic, less than 40% of homes in the U.S. are equipped with security cameras, one of the leading deterrents.  

An outdoor security system offers a first line of defense, often deterring criminals before an intrusion occurs. Let’s explore what these systems offer homeowners in St. Augustine, FL, and the surrounding area.

Deterring a Home Break-In

A UNC Charlotte study shows 83% of burglars look for security cameras before deciding to break in. After all, most criminals choose the path of least resistance that minimizes the chance of being caught. Home security systems, particularly those that include outdoor cameras, motion detection, and adequate lighting, offer the best burglary deterrents. 

Burglaries are more frequent during the middle of the day and in the summer months. This tendency is because intruders look for vacant homes, such as when homeowners are at work or on vacation. In addition to outdoor security cameras, police recommend an effective presence simulation. 

At Atlantic Security,, one of our security partners, helps us create a home that appears occupied. From a user-friendly app, you can press an icon that randomly turns lights on and off and raises and lowers shades, making it look like someone is home.

Today’s Outdoor Security Cameras

Today’s outdoor security cameras are AI smart, zooming in on strangers, notifying homeowners when something unusual occurs, and alerting them when someone crosses a digital perimeter during set hours of the day. They also come with two-way audio, enabling you to speak to the person on camera.

If it’s a neighbor stopping by to check on your home while you’re on vacation, you can greet them and remotely unlock the door no matter where you are in the world. If it’s a possible intruder, you can sound an alarm, flash outdoor lights, and speak directly to them while simultaneously notifying the local police. By activating the Perimeter Guard, a loud whistle and red LED lights let anyone on your property know they’ve been spotted.

If motion is detected or a door or window contact signals an opening, a camera focuses in, and you’ll receive an immediate alert. Continuous locally recorded video is securely encrypted and easily accessed from your smartphone. Our security systems also offer 24/7 remote monitoring, letting you relax. Professionals keep an eye on your property and notify law enforcement, the fire department, or emergency medical services, depending on the emergency.
