As a parent, it’s no surprise that you’ll do whatever you can to make sure your home is safe and secure enough to protect your family. While you may already have deadbolts on your door and an alarm system, there’s another measure you can take in case others fail — security cameras.
In order to ensure they monitor the right scenes, there are several locations you should install security cameras around your home.
Your Front Door
Over ⅓ of burglars enter through a home’s front door, so it’s essential to have security cameras that catch everything going on in that location. To prevent anyone from disabling the camera, have it installed on a second floor. If you have a one-floor home, you may be better off installing a peep-hole camera that is hidden within your door to see who’s visiting at all times.
Your Back Door
Another large portion of break-ins are committed using the back door as an entry point. Like the cameras by your front door, these should also be high up enough that no one could tamper with them.
Your Back Gate
If you have a large yard, especially one filled with gardening equipment or outdoor sports equipment, a burglar may bypass your home and take what they want from there. Having security cameras at your back gate and other entryways of your yard can deter them from coming onto your property.
The Sides of Your Home
If you have first-floor windows, an intruder can try to pry one open to slip into your home. When you have security cameras aimed at the sides of your home, they can help prevent burglars from breaking in.
Your Basement Stairs
Especially if your basement has a hatch door leading outside or ground-level windows that can be broken into, having a camera aimed at your basement stairs can help identify an intruder in a worse case scenario.
