Areas You Need To Pay Attention To
- The Front Door & The Back Door
The front door is one of the most common entrances for burglars. About 40% of burglars will pass right through your front door when no one is around. Likewise, you also need to watch the back door.
Windows (especially on the first floor) are the second most common place to break in, because people often forget to lock their windows.
There are about 9% burglars access from the garage door.
Less-visited basements can also be a target for burglars.
- Forecourt & backyard
Those may be good hiding locations for burglars, in particular in case your landscaping is overgrown.
- Climbable Trees
Be careful with the tall trees which are around your second floor windows, they may become the ladders for burglars to climb into your second floor.
- Baby’s Room & Pet’s Room
Your Baby's room and your pet's room are also areas need to focus on, installing a camera on there can let you know their situation in time.
The Places We Recommend to Install Cameras
- All entrances
We recommend that you install security cameras at all entrances on the first floor, including the door of your basement and garage, to ensure that you have a wide line of sight to prevent your house from being burglarized.
Trees in your yard are also good places to place cameras because they are hidden enough. You can choose a wireless camera, so you don't need to worry about how to power the camera.
- Corner of Common Areas
Public areas are generally where you spend most of your time, such as living room and kitchen, and you may want to place an indoor camera there.
If you have a driveway, it’s crucial that you use an outdoor camera to monitor it, because the driveway is a place in which burglaries can without difficulty get entry into your house.
The Places We Not Recommend to Install Cameras
For privacy reasons, we do not recommend placing a security camera in your bathroom.
- Neighbor's area
Please be careful not to have your surveillance to spy on your neighbors, as this may be an illegal act.
