Security cameras are a core component of your overall home security. However, that doesn’t mean you can get them installed anywhere without giving it a thought, and calling it a day.
You need to make sure you’re installing them in all the right spots where they matter the most. Doing so will ensure you’re getting the most out of your CCTV system.
That said, here are the most important places where you absolutely need to get your security cameras installed.
Important Places to Install CCTV Security Cameras
Most people think burglars always come in from side entrances — but that’s not correct!
In fact, around 34% of the burglars come in from the front door. Furthermore, this is the location where package thieves usually do their trickery.
It’s an important place to install a security camera. Doing so will not only keep intruders away but will also help keep an eye on people who have access to your home, like delivery people, maids, babysitters, maintenance people, etc.
After your front door has been secured, you need to turn towards all the other doors of your property. These may include the backdoor, side doors, basement doors — or any other special door your property might have.
Burglars often find such doors less intimidating as people don’t put a lot of thought into keeping them secure. Putting a security camera on each of these doors will ensure no one gets in or out without you knowing.
A garage is often the weakest entry point of a house — that’s why burglars love it.
Plus, it has various pieces of precious equipment, like sports equipment, grills, and even bikes & cars. That’s why it’s an amazing idea to install a CCTV camera in the garage.
Furthermore, if your garage is detached, the camera will let you stay connected to it from the inside.
Say someone manages to break into the house undetected, they’d still have to wonder about the main hallway to do their trickery. That’s why you need a camera in there as well.
No matter where they enter from; through a bedroom, bathroom, backdoor, or even the basement, they’d eventually have to step up in the main hallway to steal your belongings. After all, this is the location that connects all of your houses.
The Bottom Line
Installing your security cameras in the right spots is essential for making the most out of them.
As always, planning such a technical topic requires expert opinion and planned execution. We don’t recommend attempting to design your CCTV system yourself. Letting FDS handle this job is the best way to go.
