Imagine being in a room you aren't actually in.
You can sit on the wall, even watch the room from the ceiling.
But those extra sets of eyes aren't yours. They're cameras. DSI security services owner Bobby Richardson says people are wanting more and more.
Richardson said, “We're definitely seeing an increase in sales in putting security cameras in people’s homes.”
Security systems have been around for awhile, but Richardson says it's the cameras that are changing the security game.
Richardson said, “People they'll come home and they'll find a little something out of place or something missing and it gives them a little bit of a insecure type feeling and what they typically want to do is they want a record of what happened umm and that's what the video provides them over the security system it allows them to see exactly what took place at a certain time
Cameras are helping busy businesses too, even stopping speeders from running red lights and catching copper thieves on farms.
Sgt. Rachel David said,“Home surveillance systems are great. Not only do we get still shots of a perpetrator, we can see someone committing the crime and that's so helpful in the prosecution of these cases.”
But Richardson says be careful. That's evidence a hacker could use against you.
Richardson said, “A little bit of security or firewall with IP cameras is important.”
