Brett Parker received a two and half year sentence after the attempted break-ins
Brett Parker, of Rush Green Road, was caught on doorbell cameras trying to gain access to the properties in October 2018.
The owners, however, both received notifications on their phone to make them aware of his activity near the doors of their homes.
Parker was identified on the CCTV at the victim’s properties in Parsonage Field in Doddinghurst and Shevon Way in Brentwood.
The 24-year-old was already known to the police and he was charged with two counts of attempted burglary.
He was remanded in custody but refused to appear at Basildon Crown Court, either in person or via video link.
In his absence, Parker was jailed on Thursday, 10 October for two and half years.
Detective Sergeant David Wilkinson, of Brentwood CID, said: “This case highlights that many benefits of having security like door ball cameras at your homes.
“Parker was disturbed during both attempted burglaries but we were able to identify and charge Parker with these offences, after receiving clear images of him in the act.
“Parker has been disruptive throughout the court process and continued to refuse to either appear at court or via video link. He has since received a custodial sentence for his crimes.”
