Over the years, cameras and home security systems have gotten more affordable, more accessible, and more common.
You'd be surprised how many people have this kind of thing in their home.
Even in the safest corners of Suburbia, you'll see quite a few yards with a sign from ADT or a similar company.
Chances are, most people in a typical American subdivision have some kind of security system to protect against burglaries and home invasions.
It's not necessarily the most obvious niche, but there's a lot of space there.
Revenue from security alarm sales alone in the US averages $23 billion a year, and the industry's seen a lot of recent growth.
If you're looking for a solid, evergreen niche for an affiliate site or an online store, home security might be a perfect choice.
People will always want to feel safe.
Sure, maybe they're sometimes a little paranoid about it, but it gives homeowners peace of mind.
You could easily sell video equipment on Amazon or through Shopify, offer affiliate-monetized product reviews for cameras and security systems, and otherwise find ways to make a profit from this surprisingly secure product niche.
