The Benefits of CCTV Security Cameras for NDIS Participants

Living with a disability can present unique security challenges, and NDIS participants often have special security needs that require careful attention. CCTV security cameras can be an essential tool for NDIS participants who want to ensure their safety and security. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of CCTV security cameras for NDIS participants.


Enhanced Safety

CCTV security cameras can help people feel safe in their homes. With real-time video monitoring and phone notifications, they can keep an eye on their surroundings and quickly identify any potential threats. This can be particularly helpful for NDIS participants who live alone or have limited mobility.


Remote Monitoring

CCTV security cameras can be accessed remotely via a phone, tablet or laptop, which means that NDIS participants can monitor their homes from anywhere in the world. This can be particularly helpful for those who travel frequently or have caregivers who visit their homes. With remote monitoring, they can ensure that their homes are safe and secure at all times, providing that perfect peace of mind. 


Improved Independence

CCTV security cameras can also help NDIS participants maintain their independence. With the ability to monitor their surroundings, they can make informed decisions about their safety and security. This newfound independence can boost confidence and self-esteem which can significantly benefit many other aspects of life. 


Individually Customised

CCTV security cameras come with a range of customization options that can be particularly helpful for NDIS participants. For example, users can set up alerts that notify them when someone enters or exits their home. They can also set up custom zones that focus on specific areas of their homes, such as the front door or bedroom. Most importantly, CCTV cameras can come with in-built alarms with strobing sirens for the perfect deterrent. We highly encourage users to install at least one advanced camera with this functionality if mobility is limited or they are living in a higher-risk environment. 



In the unfortunate event of a break-in or theft, CCTV security cameras can provide valuable evidence. With high-resolution video footage, they can quickly identify suspects and recover stolen property. This can be particularly helpful for NDIS participants who may be more vulnerable to theft or other crimes and those with limited vision. 


To conclude…

 As an important note, the key difference between a wired and wireless system is that the CCTV system will record 24/7, whereas the wireless system records based on human-movement. A CCTV system will also provide a longer-term solution given that they are constantly provided power and do not work off battery requirements. If you or your client are planning to stay in your home for longer than 5+ years and your home structure is possible for CCTV, we always recommend going that extra mile and choosing a smart CCTV installation. 


CCTV security cameras can be a valuable tool for NDIS participants who want to enhance their safety and security. With real-time video monitoring, in-built alarm systems, remote access, and customisations, they can feel confident in their ability to protect themselves and their homes. If you or a loved one is an NDIS participant, CCTV security cameras may be an investment worth considering.
