Entry and Exit Points: Entry and exit points should have cameras installed. This will make sure that all anyone who comes in out of your home is monitored and recorder. Consider mounting the cameras so they point downward from the top of the door or possibly from a side mounted on the ceiling so you may see the person and recognize who they are.
High-Traffic Rooms: High-traffic rooms or common rooms should have a security camera. This helps to monitor or record events if a burglar or prowler gets inside of your home. Since these rooms are typically locations that must be passed through once inside your home its imperative to install an indoor camera at these locations, such as a living room or kitchen.
Home Roofline or Eaves: Home rooflines or eaves provide a very good location for camera placement. This location allows for some of the best views and keeps the camera semi-protected against the elements.
Driveway and Garage Doors: Outdoor possessions are important to homeowners and it’s imperative that they remain safe from trespassers, a security camera should be installed by all driveway and garage doors. This will help safeguard your outdoor assets such as boats, trailers, jet skis and vehicles.
Buildings Outdoor: Some homeowners may have other buildings on their property. Horse stables, barns, guest houses, pool houses, cowsheds, greenhouses, livestock installations, sheds, and carports are just some examples of outdoor property structures that need to be protected. Consider monitoring these other areas with your home surveillance cameras.
