In an interesting move, a Chicago, IL suburb, West Chatham, a homeowner tired of vandals destroying his property agreed to let police install video surveillance cameras at his home.
Homeowner links cameras to city cops
First homeowner links his surveillance cameras to city cops
Charles Hill installed five surveillance cameras outside the 3,720-square-foot home he’s building in West Chatham after local kids broke $3,700 worth of architectural windows.
From now on he won’t be the only one checking the video when something bad happens on his block.
Hill has become the first private homeowner to take the city up on its unprecedented offer to connect privately owned exterior surveillance cameras to Chicago’s 911 emergency center.
It is interesting to see that 2 dozen businesses and schools have also agreed to share their video. It really didn’t go into detail if they are wired or wireless, though it talked about a fiber optic network that was encrypted.
We always feel that a Video Surveillance System is the best way to protect your home, as you can have a record of who entered your property to give to law enforcement.
There are so many ways to protect your home or business. For people on a budget and not wanting to buy DVR’s and cameras, the simplest is the SecureView Flood Light Camera, a camera hidden in a flood light that sends video to a box you plug into your T.V. or VCR.
For a great price to performance ratio, we have the 1-4 VersaCam Live View series, that allow you to record up to 4 indoor or outdoor cameras through a small box that connects to your computers USB port.
From there, we have video surveillance systems starting at 4 camera’s and up. Visit our website EyeSpyPro.com for more information. We can also help you put together a complete video surveillance system from different components. Use our contact form, or call us for more information…
Any comments about letting Law Enforcement put a camera at your house? I can see this in Socialist countries, though is that going to far in our free society?
