ADT Pulse Cameras are ADT's wireless security cameras for your home. They add that extra layer of protection your family needs and deserves. Cash, jewelry and electronics equal easy money, burglars are eager to get into your home and take it. It just doesn’t make sense anymore to leave cameras out of your home security plan. More important than material possessions is the safety and well being of your family. Burglaries and home invasions are a daily headline on evening news channels. Adding surveillance cameras to your home or business security system adds several additional ways to monitor, prevent and capture suspicious activity. You can even make sure Fido is playing his role of the home security plan.

Help Fight Crime in Your Neighborhood with Cameras and Video Monitoring

When you add an outdoor security camera to your Pulse system you are letting the bad guys know you're keeping an eye on them. Cities across the nation have installed cameras in high crime areas and many were able to measure substantial drops in crime and even more substantial returns on investment. In Chicago, they saved $4.30 for every dollar invested in surveillance. The cameras deter crimes and help capture and prosecute others. With a residential burglary every 15 seconds and an average loss of over $2000, there's financial logic in investing in your own surveillance cameras.

Capturing a crime or suspect on video can supply key evidence in a burglary or home invasion investigation. Currently, only 13% of burglary cases are actually solved. Many burglaries happen while homes are empty and witnesses are few. Neighborhood cameras are capturing actual crimes taking place and putting bad guys behind bars. They'll also capture the suspicious fellow that cases your home and takes off when he sees the camera.

Your ADT Pulse camera can take a recording when motion is detected near it and alert you via text and/or email immediately. You'll know the minute something is fishy. In minutes you can see a suspicious character and post to community sites like alerting your entire community. Check out this story of a Walnut Creek mom that posted video of a man stealing a package from her front porch. Using social media and recorded footage, the thief was caught and put in jail.

Does your city keep a database of surveillance cameras? Many cities request citizens alert police when they install video surveillance. If a crime does happen in your area, your surveillance footage might provide vital evidence in an investigation.
