    Does CCTV installation affect insurance?

    Security Specialists

    If you have CCTV installed and take measures to improve home security, to what extent does this impact on insurance? If there was a burglary, if you had security are you more likely to have a favourable insurance offering since you’ve done more to protect your home or does it not work this way? Just something I thought was worth asking about.

    "Burglar alarms should form part of the broader home security set up. In particular, the police recommend having a visible burglar alarm. Something with a noticeable box on the outside of your home can act as a deterrent to burglars – but it won’t stop them from entering your home independently, which is why other home security measures are essential.

    Aside from having a burglar alarm, you can also protect your home by installing:
    Door and window locks – especially locks that meet British Standards
    Security cameras and lights"
