Why It’s Essential To Have The Right Security Cameras For Each Part Of Your Home

Safety is a concern for every homeowner, yet most don’t take adequate precautions to protect against very real threats.

Do you have an alarm system? Does it work? Will it transmit to the local police station or to the alarm company? Is it loud enough to hear outside of the home? Do you remember to set it when you leave the house and before bed at night?

Alarms are only as good as they’re programmed to be, and you’re only human. While you should have an alarm system at home for underlying security, adding security cameras to your home will ensure that all of your house is protected, all of the time.

Security cameras are designed for different functions, and their information can be transmitted in various ways. Most homeowners find that streaming security camera feed to an app on a smartphone, computer, or tablet lets them see what is happening at any time, from anywhere. 

Security cameras come in many different forms, and the right designs and placement for your home will boost your home’s safety immediately. These are a few factors to consider.

Field of View: The larger the field of view, the more you can see. Backyard cameras should have large fields of view, while one focused on just a porch can be smaller.

Low Light: You want your cameras to work at night, in daylight, and in the dimly lit times in between. With a wide aperture camera, you can get better details at dusk and dawn.

Motion Detection: With motion detection, your cameras can let you know via an app or alert that there is movement detected at home, whether it’s a delivery person or your dog chasing its tail.

 


Upgrade Your Home’s Security With Indoor And Outdoor Security Cameras

When was the last time you thought about your home’s security system? For most people, it’s not until there’s a problem that they really take a look at how their home and family are protected.

Being proactive with security won’t just help you sleep better at night; it can also save you some money on insurance. Plus, you won’t have to worry about leaving older kids alone, and you’ll know immediately whether something is a problem or just a glitch.

Installing security cameras is a simple and affordable way to boost your home’s safety. And the good news is, modern cameras aren’t as big, bulky, and obtrusive as those of the past. With wireless capability allowing you to get an alert on your phone no matter where you, you can always keep track of what is happening at home.

The Benefits of Outdoor Cameras

Most people focus on exterior security cameras to help deter or catch any intruders or crime. In many cases, if someone sees a camera installed at your house, they’ll probably move on to an easier mark. 

But security cameras will also help you bolster your case should you be the victim of theft or a break-in. When you can watch a perpetrator break in, grab valuables, and take back off, you’re giving your insurance company and the police a head start.

The Benefits of Indoor Cameras

Modern security cameras come in all shapes and sizes and can be placed in innocuous spots, like plants, making them useful for indoor placement. If you’re placing cameras indoors for security purposes, you can put them strategically inside entrances and any means of egress, as you’ll have a better chance of capturing any intruders head-on. 

Be careful when you install your indoor cameras to avoid places like bathrooms or bedrooms being in any frame, as you want family members and guests to feel comfortable in any part of the house.

Concerns About Safety? How To Strategically Place Security Cameras Around Your Home

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.

Rear Windows

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.

Side Gates

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.

Basements

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.
