When it comes to home security, you have options: security system or CCTV.
You can go with the classic choice, a home security system. Sure, you have to pay monthly fees if you want professional monitoring. Yes, it’s a pain to get a city alarm license. But even if your alarm never goes off, just knowing that it’s there can give you a priceless feeling of security.
