Installing CCTV to protect your home and property in Sidcup


Nestled in south east London, Sidcup offers a diverse range of housing options, from charming Victorian terraces to modern apartments and spacious family houses, catering to many needs and budgets. Patron Security has worked at several properties in this friendly corner of greater London providing alarms and other protection for local homeowners.

Our Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) systems provide an additional layer of security, delivering peace of mind and contributing to a pleasant living environment. By embracing CCTV, homeowners safeguard their properties and belongings, whilst contributing to the overall well-being of the community at the same time. It’s a win, win investment.

Enhanced security and deterrents

While Sidcup is generally a safe area, like any community, it experiences its share of criminal activities. According to recent reports, the most reported crimes in Sidcup include burglary, vehicle theft, and anti-social behaviour. And among the roads and streets with the higher instances of burglary are Elm Road, Elm Parade, and Days Lane.

By increasing security measures, such as using CCTV cameras, homeowners are effectively signalling that they take the safeguarding of their properties seriously. The presence of visible surveillance equipment acts as a strong deterrent, making burglars – and even petty plant thieves – think twice before targeting such homes.

In addition to crime prevention, CCTV systems also offer benefits in terms of monitoring and peace of mind. Homeowners can remotely access the live feed from their cameras, enabling them to keep an eye on their properties even while they are away. This allows for prompt action in case of any suspicious activities, but moreover, in the event of an emergency, such as a fire or medical incident, the CCTV cameras can aid emergency responders by providing real-time information about the situation, ensuring swift and effective assistance.


Valuable evidence

The benefits of installing CCTV systems also extend beyond individual homes. A network of surveillance cameras in one area greatly enhances community safety generally. The video footage captured by private CCTV cameras can serve as valuable evidence, aiding in the identification and prosecution of criminals. Moreover, the mere presence of CCTV cameras acts as a visual deterrent, discouraging potential wrongdoers from engaging in criminal activities within the wider community.

What are the benefits of CCTV cameras?

  1. Security cameras can lead to reduced insurance premiums as they show a commitment to home security which many insurance providers appreciate.
  2. Whether you’re at the office, out shopping or even on holiday in another country, you can keep an eye on your home remotely.
  3. Nature watch in your garden (depending on where we mount the cameras) you can see all the visiting birds, cats, and foxes enjoying your facilities (and dustbins)!
  4. Combined with good old-fashioned neighbourhood watch programmes, the 24-hour footage captured by CCTV cameras can often help with untangling traffic accidents, street incidents and with fostering community and collective security.
