The only benefits I see to a camera are:
a) picture of the person who broke in
b) a way to see who is outside your door (with some systems you can see who is outside your door from your phone, even when you aren't at home, which is cool).

Personally I look at a home security system as a deterrent to burglars. If the house is making a lot of noise, most thieves will go find an easier target. I don't need a picture of them.

On the other hand, I'm toying with having some way to see who is outside but that may be my like of gadgets more than a real necessity.

p.s. I also have a very large dog which I think is a pretty good deterrent
