Why Install Home Security Camera
Technology has come a long way very quickly, especially when it comes to home security. Ten to 15 years ago, only higher income homes would have security cameras installed. These days, buying and setting up a home security camera is fast, easy and affordable. While a cheaper system might not have every bell or whistle, it can do a perfectly adequate job of protecting your home. Camera systems can also be known as surveillance or CCTV. Here are a few things to consider when installing a security camera in and around your home.
- Find out the areas that a camera would be most beneficial. Obviously, you can have more than one installed but it would be a bit hard to get the whole 360 degrees of your house under camera guard. Look for hiding spots that could be missed by the naked eye. These areas are where an opportunistic thief could take advantage of not being seen.
- Be aware of privacy laws. Where you position your camera could have an effect on your neighbours’ privacy.
- You might require inside security cameras as well, which can add to the cost, but also the security of your home.
- When in doubt, get a professional to give guidance. This will ensure your system complies with laws and gives max protection.
