In 2012, I described my purchase of my first surveillance system as a “one-time investment”. I was, of course, referring to the fact that I wouldn't have to pay monthly fees to a central station monitoring company for home security. There really are no one-time investments in life, whether you're talking about homes, cars, anything technology, education, teeth, breast implants, appliances, etc. Everything has a lifespan and they aren't meant to last forever. Even diamond shapes, such as marquise or pear, go out of style and lose value.
Why Upgrade your Surveillance System?
Like everything else, your surveillance system won't last forever. But even if it's still working, you may not want to wait for it to die before upgrading it. Technology improvements and ease of upgrade, as you'll see in this video, make a compelling case for proactively replacing your old system with something current.
In this video, I show you the differences between my old cameras and two versions of newer, high definition cameras. Of course I expected HD cameras to be better. No question. But this is the first head-to-head video comparison that objectively quantifies the improvement.
