No matter where you live, there are always unexpected surprises that may have you wanting a better security system. If that’s the case, security cameras are a great way to give yourself and your family peace of mind.
But just putting security cameras around your residential property won’t always be useful – you need to place your cameras in the right places. These tips will help you strategically set cameras so that you and your family know you’re protected all the time, whether or not you’re at home.
Points of Entry
One of the key places you’ll want cameras is anywhere that someone could easily enter your home, from your front door to any balconies to your garage. Chances are someone is going to try these places first if they want to break in before looking for alternatives, so focus on first-floor and entryways to start. Not to mention, you’ll have the ability to watch for packages or home deliveries even when you’re not there.
Most burglars will choose to break one of your back windows to get in rather than one that is facing a street or other homes. Make sure the rear side of your property, particularly any windows, can be seen by cameras clearly.
A strategically placed camera near a side gate can be a way to monitor any activity in and out of your backyard. Not only will this help you keep an eye out for intruders, but you can also make sure kids and other family members are always safely behind a locked gate.
Whether your basement has an exterior access door or just a small window, intruders will often look to these spaces as entry points because they’re less likely to be heard. Place a camera near the top of your basement stairs so you can get a view of anyone coming in, and a very clear picture if they do make it inside.
