Approximately 34% of all intruders enter a home through the front door. It’s key to have a video surveillance camera installed with a view of your front door. All video surveillance cameras need to be installed in such a way that it can’t be disabled, removed or tampered with.

The next popular entry points for an intruder are the back and side doors. Have a camera positioned at every entry door and installed where rocks or the wrong hands can’t reach it. It’s advisable to have a few of your video surveillance hidden so nobody can see them; however, the mere presence of security cameras is a deterrent for criminals. Intruders usually research and look for homes that they believe have no video surveillance systems.
