A man wanted for robbery and assault after his attempt to steal from a home in the New York City area was arrested in Manhattan thanks to his crime being captured on a hidden security camera.
The attack in Millburn, New Jersey, about 25 miles west of Manhattan, left one of the home's residents with numerous injuries, according to the New Jersey Star-Ledger, but may not have been solved had it not been for a strategically placed nanny cam. Not knowing his actions were being caught on film, the man continually walked through the home taking belongings including valuable jewelry within view of the camera.
This shows one of the most important aspects of protecting your home with security cameras. The man's actions were clearly visible on film and he made no attempt to hide himself as he did not know his actions were being filmed, allowing police and those who know him to have an easy way to identify him.
To improve your home's protection, acquiring security cameras can not only allow you to view what is going on at any time but can provide an important layer of help in the case of an emergency, allowing homeowners to know what happened.
