Choosing Your Home Security Camera Installation Areas
After deciding to invest in security cameras for your home, the next thing you will need to think about is just where those cameras will go. Where you install your security cameras is just as important as the cameras you choose, the professional opinion you seek, and your choice to invest in security cameras in the first place. A great installation location choice will allow you to capture all the footage you wish to get, while a poor choice will put you in a position where you have cameras but the footage is lacking. If you want your security cameras to act as an effective crime deterrent, your installation areas are going to make or break your experience.
The best way to go about making sure you choose the right installation areas is to seek professional opinion. Millions of break-ins occur every year in the United States, and asking the right questions to a security expert can ensure that you are less likely to be counted in that statistic. Experienced professionals in security can tell you what the main target areas for your cameras should be and why those are the most important places for your equipment.
Where To Start
Whether you have spoken to a security professional or you are choosing your installation areas yourself, it is a good idea to know where to start. A few key places to start with the installation of your security cameras are the following:
- Front Door – It is a common misconception that burglars will sneak in through the windows or slip through the cellar doors first. In reality, a burglar will typically approach your front door in plain sight before attempting any other means of entry. The reason is simple: going through the front door looks “normal.” Burglars want to commit their crimes and look inconspicuous while doing so, and one way to do that is to use the front door.
- Back And Side Doors – If your front door camera is spotted, a burglar will likely move on to your back and side doors to see if any are left unsurveilled. Make sure to cover the back and side doors to ensure that all entryways are secured.
- Common Areas Of The Home – With the outdoor areas taken care of, it is now time to consider the interiors. Placing cameras in the main common areas of your home will help you not only spot any unwanted intruders but also monitor any activity happening within your home. Interior cameras in the common areas of the home are ideal for making sure kids get home safely, any hired help in the home is behaving as expected, and that pets are well behaved while you are away for the day. If a lamp breaks or a pillow suddenly has a tear, you will know just what happened.
