DIY CCTV – The Future of Crime Solving?

With recent inspections exposing UK police’s apparent reluctance to investigate high-frequency crime such as burglaries and car theft, it can be no coincidence that the market for DIY home surveillance is growing every day. People are looking for the next best methods or products to keep their homes safe, and today’s latest gadget is the Withings ‘Home’ security device.

This new security camera can fit in the palm of your hand, but don’t let its size fool you; Withings Home has an extensive list of features which will make it a big competitor in the home security market. With a 135-degree wide angle zoom and night vision, the camera will activate through both motion and sound detection, recording anything of interest and sending the footage directly to the cloud.

Withings Home will work directly with the Apple HomeKit software previously discussed here, which hopes to make home security and functionality as easily accessible as possible. For the most part this product is advertised as a new way to store ‘memorable’ moments in the home, however as evidence and witnesses are becoming more and more essential to police investigations this gadget and others like it provide an easy and high-tech method of recording any incidents.

In the mean time it remains crucial to ensure that your home is safe and secure by using British Standard Approved locks and making sure all windows and doors are locked when not in use.
