wouldn't any saving gained to insurance discount be lost due to the cost of the service contract?

Well it's not just the discount but you must consider what else you get, an annual service with replacement standby batteries and any other failing parts covered, and in our case a complete new updated system when the old one failed. So in my case money well spent at around 60 per year, a new system fully installed is several 100s of pounds.

I've installed and maintained my own alarm system,  I've also fitted the biggest battery I could. We were burgled about ten years ago whilst on holiday (old alarm system with contract) , luckily we were only away a week. The alarm went off and we think they had a quick look around, a few days later it went off again, neighbours could not see anything either time, but the intruders turned the power off the second time obviously intending on coming back when the battery was flat. I've also fitted the loudest internal sirens I could, that will spook them if nothing else.

i actually have the opposite view on that.
if you answer it remotely via your phone then it's suggests that you aren't actually home.
if you were in the house you're not going to pick up your phone and talk to them via the phone, you're just going to go to the door.

I disagree. I'm not spending 100+ on a video doorbell to have to get up off my lazy ass to answer the door!

With regards to the OP no I wouldn't put signage up. I'd be happy to put security cameras up but wouldn't want signage to advertise the fact.

so you would never answer the door if you'd spent 100?
what if the person at the door is someone you want to let in or receive something from?

you're still going to have to get up off your lazy ass to do that.

who exactly are you trying to "put of the scent" by using one of these devices? how any burglars ring your doorbell or knock your door before attempting a break in?
at best all you'll be avoiding jehovahs witnesses.

If the camera records beyond the boundary of your property, then I believe you need signage.

I have Foscam's setup around parts of the inside of the house, and one monitoring the back garden. They are connected to my Synology NAS RS815+ which also keeps past recordings for up to around 1 to 2 weeks, so if necessary I can go back in time and check something if there's something unusual. I don't use a warning sign.

^^^^
Ditto that, but to a QNAP NAS, but same functionality which I can view while away from home. I don't advertise it either.

Although the only action I have captured has been the window cleaner!  ::)
