DALLAS, November 9, 2020 / PRNewswire / – Parks Associates Safety Research finds that COVID-19 is a key factor driving households with security surveillance to upgrade their system: 41% of monitored households have a professional surveillance plan to upgrade their system within six months and a half-hearted plan to install an add-on device themselves, with the majority citing the pandemic as a related factor. The most popular add-on devices among these surveillance homes are video cameras, smart lighting, and video doorbells.
