Who needs cops when you can have a security camera watching your back 24/7?
The question then becomes, “Where do you place those surveillance cameras for maximum effectiveness?”
The answer: Near common break-in points. The places where you’re most likely to catch burglars in the act and record their faces.
According to the Washington Post, burglars are most likely to get into your home through 3 spots:
Here’s what typically happens: During the day, a burglar will knock on the front door to see if anyone is home. If someone answers, the burglar just makes up some excuse, “Hey my phone died, and I need directions. Can you help?”
If no one answered the door, however, they’ll assume no one is home and kick the door in, find your valuables and make off like the bandit they are.
The key here is that someone approaching the front door does not seem too suspicious. And if someone opens the door, then they can have an excuse. Basically, the front door is less risky.
Regardless, you should cover all your bases by putting cameras near these 3 common break-in points.
You might be thinking, “OK this sounds cool and all, but I don’t know a thing about buying security cameras.”
That’s fine! We can help.
We suggest buying smart video cameras, which can both record video and let you see a live stream from your smart phone. So, you can see what’s going on at home, when you’re away from home.
