Not sure how CCTV beefs up security to be honest, it's OK after the fact if they are on camera and its infocus and you can actually see them.

 

If you stick a dummy cam up in a spot where it is seen might deter somebody otherwise make things look harder to get into.

More a piece of mind thing ,remote access via an app so  can check , and also i will be able to track down the dog owner who keeps letting his dog cr**p on my path

I was going to suggest a  dog. Even a small one that makes a lot of noise does the job. Burglars don't want to get into a confrontation, they just want your stuff. I would also suggest checking your home insurance. Not everything you have may be covered.

I was looking myself at this sort of stuff a few weeks ago.

You can get a doorbell now with a video feed that ties into your wifi network.

Front camera now fitted , maybe should have gone for a 4mm lens rather than 6mm but car and gates are covered and I’m not invading anyone else’s privacy
