Orlando Police Chief Advises Residents to Get Surveillance Cameras

Orlando police chief believes property crime would drop by 10 percent if every homeowner installed security cameras.


In yet another sign of the market potential for integrators to install residential cameras, the police chief in Orlando is actually encouraging residents to install the cameras in their homes.

According to ClickOrlando.com, Orlando Police Chief Paul Rooney says property crime would drop 10 percent and police would clear more property crimes with residential cameras in place.

CCTV was relegated to the commercial world for years, as homeowners feared privacy violations. Those fears seem to have fallen away as homeowners embrace systems that tie into the Internet for viewing on a smartphone, tablet or PC.

Of course, Rooney doesn't endorse any particular brand of camera or installation company.

I almost had to pull my tinfoil hat out. “cameras in their homes”. Big brother watching me smile. Whew… the article is about exterior CCTV cameras.

A couple of tips…

Most people attempt to cover the driveway or front door. Dont forget about windows and the alley. Every point of entry should be covered.

Have cameras that are mounted at the edge of the property line pointing back towards the house also. This way you can see someone creeping around your windows and doors. With cameras mounted on the house pointing out you lose visual once they get close to the house.
