It is very apparent to everyone that CCTV systems can help prevent and catch break-ins as well as keep your family and home safe from vandals and burglars. However, similar to TV aerial Installations, knowing where to place the system can be another matter. Even if you have the clearest security cameras its effectiveness can be influenced by where you place it. Knowing where to place the security camera around your home is very important. Catching any incidents that happen around your home can only be done when your camera is put in the right place.
Best Places to Put your CCTV System Around the Home
Security camera positioning plays an important role in providing the surveillance that you want around your home. So where should you place your security camera? The following are some of the best places to put your security cameras:
Roughly 34% of burglars and intruders enter through the front door. If you’re worried that the cameras are going to be too obviously placed and too easily seen by the intruders then not to worry, as there are security cameras that are able to blend in the background colour that they are placed on. Also sometimes if the intruders do see the security cameras then it deters them and they think twice about their original intentions.
Around 22% of burglars invade your home through the backdoor, so you would benefit from placing a camera here. This also includes side door intruders who will always try and go for the easiest option, therefore, they will try all of the doors first.
Garage View Back Garden/ Gate to Back Garden
Some people don’t think it’s important to have a CCTV system at all, but some people often do not think to put any CCTV cameras around the garage. This could be a very easy route into the house for a thief if the garage is attached to your home. Even if the intruder is not able to get into the home through the garage there are still going to be valuables in the garage such as cars, bikes and DIY tools. Make sure the garden has lighting in it when it detects motion, this could startle the thief and, therefore, make them go back on their original intentions because after all the thieves wouldn’t want to be caught on camera before they have even completed the malicious act.
About 23% of intruders will try and enter a home from the ground floor window if they can’t access the home through the doors. Intruders would much rather windows around the back of the home due to the fact they would get disturbed by any passers-by at the front of the home.
Keep the security cameras out of reach, make sure they are up high enough so that the burglars can’t reach up, grab the cameras down and vandalise them because this then leaves you without any footage of the burglar in the act.
