Installing CCTV to protect your home and property in Paddock Wood


Protecting our home is a top priority for most of us. Which is probably why so many homeowners in Paddock Wood are increasingly installing CCTV (closed circuit television) to deter burglars and local chancers. The cameras act as a powerful deterrent against criminal activities and help to safeguard property, vehicles, and belongings.

Paddock Wood offers homeowners easy access to the picturesque Kent countryside plus the convenience of a local jet and heli-port! Whether you’re considering purchasing a property in this charming area or you already call Paddock Wood home, it’s important to prioritise the security of your residence.

According to recent reports, the overall crime rate in Paddock Wood remains relatively low compared to other suburbs of greater London. However, burglary is one of the most common crimes reported in this area. And whilst Paddock Wood is generally a very safe environment, certain roads experience a higher incidence of burglaries. Local policing and law keeping authorities have identified several streets that have been more susceptible to burglaries in the past, including Elm Close, Beech Avenue, and Oaklands Lane. Homeowners residing in or near these roads may well benefit from the installation of CCTV systems to enhance their security measures.

Enhanced security and deterrents

Just the presence of visible CCTV cameras acts as a powerful deterrent against potential trespassers. Criminals are far less likely to target properties equipped with surveillance systems, as they fear being caught on camera and identified.


Valuable evidence

In the unfortunate event of a crime occurring on your property, CCTV footage can offer valuable hard evidence. The recorded video can aid the police investigation and greatly increases the chances of identifying and apprehending the culprits. And, often, it aids in getting precious belongings back.

What are the benefits of CCTV cameras?

  1. Remote Monitoring: Many modern CCTV systems allow homeowners to remotely monitor their properties through smartphones or other internet-enabled devices. This feature allows you to keep an eye on your home while you’re away, providing an added layer of security and peace of mind.
  2. Reduced Insurance Premiums: Installing CCTV cameras may result in reduced insurance premiums. Many insurance providers now offer discounts to homeowners who take proactive measures to secure their properties as CCTV systems can significantly reduce the risk of theft and vandalism.
  3. Vehicle patrol: We’ve all heard about the endemic rise in car and van thefts, and the seemingly unstoppable crime of stealing catalytic convertors. CCTV can help to minimise these risks and provide vital clues should the worse happen.
  4. Garden Cam! Fed up with having expensive plants, pots and furniture illicitly lifted from your garden, CCTV can catch the culprits in the act and take their picture for naming and shaming.
