How To Best Use A Limited Security Camera System

Oct 15, 2007
If you haven't gone down the route of purchasing and installing a security camera system in your home yet then it's something you should give serious consideration to.

With crime rates up and home burglaries and invasions on the rise, at least with a security camera system, the rate of deterrent is heightened.

No, simply having a system installed in your home is not going to stop a criminal breaking in if their minds are set on it but with one in place, at least they'll think twice about desecrating your private place and possessions.

Security Camera Technology

Security cameras have certainly made a quantum leap in technology and affordability. With the introduction of the internet, quality security systems at low prices have invaded the marketplace and the tough decision on your part is actually deciding which one you need and is best suited to your home.

From a budget point-of-view, you obviously want to get the best "bang for your buck" but taking shortcuts may not be the best option. If you have gone through the unpleasant experience of having your home burgled then you'll know it's one of the worst feelings of invaded privacy you can experience.

How much do you value your most expensive possession and it's contents? There is little value in putting in a sub-standard security camera system if it only partially covers your home.

Protecting Your Home's "Blind Spots"

For those people working on a budget then one of the best ways to get the most benefits from a security system is to concentrate on the "blind spots" inside and outside the home.

It's natural for an intruder to avoid being seen so they'll be looking for areas away from both natural and artificial light to make their entry. A security camera system restricted by the number of cameras contained within it's system would be better utilized by concentrating on these blind spots.

For example, a side of the house may offer protection to an intruder from the outside world and would be a good entry target for them. Having a camera positioned here would make sense. Or a dark entry point to your property which could allow someone to slip onto your premises undetected by sight is another prime camera target.

In other words, if you are restricted by your budget initially then use the available cameras you have for maximum benefit.

Drawing up a plan of your property layout and then speaking with a professional about how to best utilize the number of cameras you want should be your very first step before spending your hard earned cash on a security camera system. Make sure you highlight the main blind spots leading into and in your home.
