Whether you are hoping to prevent thieves from breaking into your home or you want to be able to catch them in the event that they do get in, you need one or more quality surveillance systems for your home. Don`t just buy a couple cameras and put them up wherever is easiest, however. For maximum home security, you should install your home surveillance systems in one or many of these four places.
1. By the Doors
Surprisingly enough, a large percentage of burglars walk right in through the front, back or side doors. Prevent this by keeping your doors locked and by installing surveillance systems near any doors, especially ones that are not visible from the street.
2. By the Windows
First story and basement windows are another popular way for burglars to gain entry into your house, especially if they are partially hidden from view by bushes or other landscaping you may have around your house. Surveillance systems mounted outside your wall are a useful way to monitor an entire side of your home.
3. Inside Your Home
If you plan on checking up on your house while you are at work, do not forget to add surveillance systems inside your house. This way, even if you don`t happen to catch the thief breaking in, you can spot him in action and call the police.
4. Around Your Yard
If your yard is very large or you have expensive toys or equipment in it, you may consider adding surveillance systems to your yard as well. Yard surveillance systems can even help you prevent break-ins in the first place, because you can respond before the thief gets in.
