How to Make the Most of Security Cameras
In today’s world, there are many reasons to install security cameras in your home ― one of the most important being to protect you, your loved ones and your belongings. In fact, studies have shown that 60% of burglars will stay away from homes with a security camera system. But once you purchase a security camera system, there are a few “tricks of the trade” to ensure your system utilizes its abilities to the fullest:
- Identify the weak spots in your home. Burglars go for unsecured doorways and windows as their main entry points into any home, so it’s important to place cameras in every entryway and at hidden entry points. Plus, keep cameras out of reach, or as far as possible out of reach, so an intruder cannot tamper with them.
- Make sure there is enough lighting so your cameras can effectively do their job. Try to purchasecameras that have night vision abilities; if not, keep them near lit areas. Don’t place cameras directly facing this sun, as this can ruin surveillance quality. Also, to improve visibility, make sure the lighting goes far beyond the field of view of the camera.
- Install both indoor and outdoor cameras. If a burglar enters the building, your indoor camera will help monitor the burglar’s movement indoors. In addition, having both indoor and outdoor cameras is useful for hostage situations, in order to identify where the intruder is located, and what they look like without coming into contact with them.
- Pair your cameras with other security features. Cameras do have blind spots, but if you pair the camera with a sensor, no intruder can get too far. If the intruder tries to break in between the camera and sensors, security service providers can be notified.
