Remember those days when neighbors and friends would look out for your best interest, your best property, etc. Well that time is done and gone; most homeowners nowadays have switched to a more responsible and dependable system of installing home security cameras in order to protect their family and their assets and to ward the dangers of the outside world. Also with the fact that home security cameras prices are continually on the decline it is become more and more affordable for the commonplace family to own for themselves. Most cameras however come in black and white, though there are color cameras but slightly more expensive, the images produced are readily recognizable and accepted in court.

Increasing so homeowners are constantly increasing home security cameras in their home as a preemptive strike against delinquent activities especially if their residence in a crime ridden neighborhood. Cameras are also majority used in business and industry as a way to keep track of the daily ongoing events in their businesses, private residences are however becoming the prime targets of companies that sell and market home security cameras for personal use as they would to take advantage of the lack of knowledge and ignorance of most individuals to the security product industry.

Being careful in reference to Privacy Laws

Frequently nowadays there are too many cases of homeowners installing security cameras in their premises without looking into or inspecting the total scope or region of sight of a camera. One good example is someone keeping records of their boundary lines could quite accidentally so,take images of the neighbors' private property. This in itself is a violation of privacy and gives off a rather negative foresight of what a home security camera really represents and its uses not forgetting giving privacy advocates something to scream about.

Another case to think about is inside of your own home, yes inside of your house. Imagine you are in the bathroom or in your bedroom changing, bathing, etc and all that time somebody is looking at you through a camera. Even in some states, in order to record in common areas in the house, if a person is visiting the have to be forewarned that they are being recorded. The use of home security camera in a household environment has to be use sparingly and with a sense of privacy in mind because while some boundaries might clear like the bedroom and bathroom others are a thin line between being the family protector and being a plain old stalker.

Outside presents even more a challenge in that as stated before while recording your own property you could end up with images of the neighbor's property. What is worst is images are captured of activities inside of the neighbor's house? And this can be heavily charged for invading the neighbors' privacy.

In conclusion while the use of home security cameras may have changed the world for better, giving a person a tighter grip over the security of their family and assets, if used irresponsibly could mean some serious jail time and/or fines.
