Community Camera and Surveillance Systems – One of the most popular types of communities in the United States is the gated community with limited access. This is where people can live in peace because their entire community is surrounded by a wall, with a gate at the front entrance and also sometimes as rear gated entrance as well. Some have security guards at the front of these communities, while others do not. The fact of the matter is that not all communities have 10′ walls along with guarded access. So what is the solution? Community Camera and Surveillance Systems. The world has become a virtual reality video camera and everywhere you look, most likely you are being recorded, in a Walmart parking lot, in any business establishment, government buildings, public building, most anywhere. WHY NOT your neighborhood or community?

By setting up security cameras, DVRs and remote viewing capabilities in the surveillance system, home owner associations get a ‘virtual security guard’. With the security cameras, those who want to try and sneak into the community will be prevented the ability to do so because of the ‘eye in the sky’. As well, through remote viewing, the members of the gated community can keep an eye on the front in their spare time, turning the entire community into a ‘remote viewing neighborhood watch’. This is worth its weight in gold because it gets the community together for a common goal and it helps keep everyone safe, without the costs of a security guard. Of course, if you would feel safer with a security guard present, you can always look at contacting a houston tx security guard company, or one that is close to your neighborhood to hire a guard in conjunction with the cameras.
So how does a community camera program work and how does it interface with local police enforcement and authorities? Community Camera and Surveillance Systems, Call Ted at Plano Texas Handyman – 214-507-3415 for more information on your Community Camera and Surveillance Systems.
I believe this is a wonderful program that allows our citizens and the police to work together to fight (and solve) crimes in our community. Here’s how the program works:
– No fee or permit is required
– Signing up is completely voluntary
– Community Camera and Surveillance Systems do NOT ask for or want monitoring access to your camera surveillance system
– You enhance the “eyes and ears” in the community and safety around your house 24/7
Now here’s an example of how you would use this:The police receives a report of a criminal offense in your neighborhood. The officers and detectives have access to a secure server where the registered residents are listed. If they believe, based on their investigation, that information may have been caught on your camera system, they will contact you and ask if you could review your recorded video during a specified time/date range. If you are able to see something of interest, they would ask that you make a copy for them to review. If you don’t have knowledge on how to burn a copy for us, we have a Digital Media Specialist that can assist, with your permission to do so.

Pretty simple huh? Not only can cameras deter crime at your house, they can also assist in helping out your neighbors when crime hits your area. This program works! One example was awhile back when the police investigated and apprehended a bank robbery suspect. One of the citizens who had surveillance cameras in place contacted the police and after reviewing the video, contacted the police and advised he had information that may be relevant to the case. As it turns out, he did. The information his camera caught assisted us in identifying the suspect and his vehicle which had been parked in a nearby neighborhood.
Remember, this is a voluntary program but we want to encourage each of you that have or will be getting surveillance systems to be a part of this important crime-fighting program. If you still have questions about this, do not hesitate to contact me. I am a firm believer in anything that can enhance our partnership with you in keeping Plano a safe community and that is why I believe strongly in this program.
