You’ve decided to help protect your property with a security camera system, but how do you know what system you need? This article will help to answer the question, 'how many security cameras do I need?' and 'where should I install them?'
For instance, a single security camera may be used to monitor an entranceway as well as several windows.
Save time and effort installing multiple security cameras in one area by minimizing the amount of drilling.
When positioning be conscious of excessive daylight, or bright night lighting, as this can "wash out" your footage.
Keeping security cameras sheltered will help protect the lens from being obstructed by rain, snow, ice, and dust.
The security camera will capture a greater amount of its surroundings, while staying out of the reach of intruders.
Consider a wireless security camera for detached buildings (such as a shed) to extend the coverage of your system.
