The Price Of Security Cameras In 2014

DoorbotThe price of security cameras have come down rapidly. Just in the year 2013, we have seen prices drop by over 15% for high definition security cameras. While security camera installation prices have remained steady since 2012, most security camera installers and installation companies have restructured how they charge for installation. You may see installation bundled with other options like remote door access locks or home entertainment systems.
For some consumers, it doesn’t make sense to purchase several cameras to cover their homes when all they’re looking for is one or two  cameras that can handle specific functions like the Doorbot unit that replaces your doorbell with an interactive camera that allows you to see and talk to the person at your door from your mobile phone no matter where you are located. Doorbot gives you extra assurance that your doorbell/camera is a great investment by offering a free replacement if your Doorbot is ever vandalized or stolen.

InstallerNow that high definition security cameras are at the price that standard cameras were back in 2009, local and national cable and communication companies are now starting to take advantage of the drop in HD security camera prices and are now offering security bundles that cover both alarm and security cameras with mobile phone monitoring.

Here are some recent average installation prices from a few local and national companies:
