Regina woman turns to home security camera after repeated car break-ins
A Regina woman is hoping a new home security camera will put an end to people breaking into her car.
"I got a description of the person who did it the first time, but without hard evidence it's really hard for the police to do anything about it," Shanae Harvey told CBC News in a recent interview. "I would like the people who are doing this to get caught. It's frustrating and it's expensive."
Harvey, along with her landlord, is turning to security cameras in an effort to curb the car vandals.
"I'm hoping that he's going to install it right on the side of the house so that it points directly onto the vehicles," Harvey said.
Quinn Huber, a technician with LS Security in Regina, says their company is going through a boom of installing home surveillance systems.
"When we started doing cameras, we probably installed two or three a year," Hubert said, explaining the home alarm company expanded into security cameras around 2011. "[Since then] it's exploded. We just do cameras non-stop now."
Consumers can find a wide range of video surveillance products and systems, and a broad range of prices.
"I'm hoping that with the cameras — and with the signs— that people will choose not to do that again," Harvey said. "Just because if they do the chances are they might be caught."
