When you are looking for the perfect place to install your home security camera, you want to make sure that it is in a spot where it will be safe and effective. You don’t want it to get wet, stolen, or damaged in any way. In this blog post, we will discuss ideas for great places to install your security camera!
What to consider before placing your camera
Before placing your camera you need to consider a few things. If you’re going to place your camera outdoors you need to make sure that your camera can withstand the temperatures and that it is water-resistant. You also need to make sure that the power cable is outdoor proof. These types of cables are usually sold separately at the manufacture of your security camera.
If you’re placing your camera indoors, you need to make sure that the placement is right for what you are trying to accomplish. You want to place it in a spot where it can get a good view of the entire room and that there is enough light so that the camera can see clearly.
Now let’s take a look at where you can place your security camera.
We know it sounds obvious, but placing a home security camera at your front is a great idea. It allows you to see who is coming and leaving and make sure that you know if you have a package delivered.
Just like the front door, placing a security camera at your back door is a great way to keep an eye on things. If someone breaks into your home through the back door, you will have evidence of it!
If you have a driveway, placing a security camera there is a great way to keep an eye on who is coming and going. This will help you make sure that no one is stealing your packages or trying to break into your home when you’re not home.
Another obvious place to put your security camera – the porch! This is a great place to see if anyone is trying to steal your packages or break into your house.
If you have windows that are easily accessible, placing a security camera there can be a deterrent for burglars. They will know that they are being filmed and may not attempt to break into your home.
If you have a garage, placing a security camera there is a great way to keep an eye on your vehicles and any tools that you may have inside. This will also help you deter thieves from breaking into your home through the garage.
If you have a basement, placing a security camera there can be helpful in keeping an eye on what is going on. This is especially true if your basement is used as a storage area.
You may also want to consider placing a camera in your attic if you have valuable stored there.
These are just a few of the many places where you can place your security camera. By considering the needs of your home, you can find the perfect spot for your camera!
Home Security Camera Placement Laws
Federal laws state that it is illegal to place your cameras pointing at your neighbor or other people’s houses – even if it’s not intentional. Laws from state to state differ so we recommend you look up the rules for your home state before placing your camera. It’s also a good idea to talk with your neighbors about camera placement and let them know that you can’t see their activities on your cameras.
