Frequently Asked Questions About Security Cameras in Vaughan
- “Can I afford a security camera?”
The cost of a security camera in Vaughan differs depending on the type of camera you want and any additional features it may have. Some standard cameras won’t run you too much, but adding often-needed features like infrared, night vision and streaming the video live onto your smart phone can see the price rise – though more often than not it’s worth it. There’s usually a one-off fee for the camera and installation and then a small monthly fee for maintenance.
However, you have to ask yourself how much it will cost – both in monetary value and the toll on you and your family – if somebody did gain unlawful access to your home and got away with it. Then, the question is not “can I afford it?” but can you afford not to have it?
