I've always felt that if someone really wants in they'll get in. So, I've never thought of security systems as loss prevention. With security cameras, I like the idea that bad bahavior gets punished. 

So many homes for sale have cameras in them now, I think it makes it harder to show homes because buyers are distracted and I can't always have conversations in the home, but must stand outside.

Yes and yes. Hubby loves checking the cameras out when we're not at home!

They're visible through the glass and MOST homes have security systems these days anyway but, I think when you see a camera, that may cause a bit more pause than if you don't.

I'm 4K all the way in both of my homes and advanced security systems in two of my vehicles including 360 degree view systems that also works in park mode.

Had a incident at my home least year and with the help of a security camera, got a conviction, perpetrator was a member of a prominent family and will not be advancing toward medical school because of this! (Long story short)

DO I believe in home security video?

What kind of question is that. It's tangible, I can see and and operate it and recognize the benefits.

To 'not believe' really takes an over-developed sense of denial.

You know what I mean...."What global warming?"

It should be noted the neighbors marked police car was broken into and the assault rifle taken.

Criminals are increasingly brazen. Many are caught and never held accountable. As a society we lack the ability to teach character.

I like fire arms. I like laser sights. I like shooting ranges. Cameras make it even more interesting.

Didn't know that. I know that associations in my area are all over people for covering their front doors with cameras which I don't think is right. They want them removed or put thru glass only - but .... you get better coverage without doing that.

I don't have a service now but maybe that's not such a bad idea.

John,

I am on the same page as Nina Hollander .  In California in public places, you will see a sign that discloses this, some of the smaller stores have "smile you are on camera!".  We had listings in high rises (commercial real estate) with security guards in the lobby.  

In the luxury residential arena, you just assume that there are video cameras.  In the listing notes there is a section for security system whether it is owned or leased.  A
