The Best Spots For Home Security Cameras
The safety and security of your family should always be a top priority. With increasing cases of home burglary, installing home security measures will protect your home from being an easy target.
Conscientious homeowners use CCTV systems for deterring crimes and surveillance. Not only are they effective in protecting your home from intruders, they give you peace of mind knowing that your property is well-secured. Once you have chosen to use CCTV cameras, you need to install them in effective locations.
Here are the best spots to place your CCTV cameras:
The front and back doors should have cameras as they commonly used access points. Consider placing a camera inside and outside the door. Install it above the door at an unreachable height but still close enough for the camera to have clear facial recognition. Ensure outdoor cameras have waterproof and night vision features.
Burglars often use first floor windows as alternative entry points. Make sure to keep windows shut and locked when you leaving home or before going to sleep. You may also want to place an indoor camera on the window sill or facing the window. Make sure to position the camera at a suitable angle to avoid backlight. Night vision cameras are often recommended for monitoring key window locations.
Apart from deterring crimes, CCTV cameras are also used to monitor activity or movement in your child’s room to ensure they are safe, a similar concept to using a baby monitor. This gives you the peace of mind, knowing your child is under your watchful eye, even when you’re not in the room.
The garage is a common burglary location entry as it offers access to valuable items such as bikes, tools or possible weapons. Always use a high-quality locking system to protect your garage after parking your car. Install CCTVs that cover the garage interior and driveway.
