Smart cameras and security apps vs a real-life security guard. What would you choose?

Anyone involved in security would have noticed the increase in home security cameras and mobile apps that are ready and waiting to alert you of a potential break-in.  These can often be delivered the next day, for under £20, and can easily installed yourself within a few minutes. They will often come with a free app that can be downloaded onto your mobile phone or tablet, allowing you to monitor your home or business from your phone, and they can also alert you to movement in front of the camera.  If you think it all sounds a little too good to be true, then you’re right.
