Tips to prevent holiday package theft

- It's Cyber Monday and many of you are expecting packages coming to your door. How do you make sure those packages don't end up in the wrong hands.

Security experts say it can be as easy as a camera system.

They are crimes of opportunity, a package sitting at the doorstep is easy prey for these thieves. But home security experts say these very cameras can not only detour a thief, it can help police catch them should you become a victim.

At the Phoenix Spy Shop they have a number of camera systems. The price for a setup is fairly inexpensive too. A basic camera plus a DVR recording device will run you only a few hundred bucks. As technology on these cameras increases, so does the quality and functions. Many have built in motion detectors. Others allow you to check in from anywhere in the world.

Security experts say it's important to get enough cameras to cover the main areas of your house.

"Front door, back door, side gate, every perimeter and angle of your house," said one expert.

Security experts say it's best to place these cameras in plain view, that way a potential thief will think twice.

The small cameras can give you peace of mind on the security of your home.
