Whether you have our newest Security Camera or an older model, the place where you set it up is strategic. It would be unfortunate to find out only too late that you were filming a wall instead of the individual that broke into your home! So what’s the best way to avoid making mistakes? Here’s a short tour of what to consider when you’re setting up your security camera.

What’s a camera for?

First of all, the reason why you’re buying a camera is directly linked to the place where you’ll be setting it up. Will it watch over your car collection in your garage? Will it keep an eye on your pets? Will it monitor who’s coming and going inside your house?

Based on what you need, your camera will be able to directly monitor your computer equipment, for example, or target the access points that lead to it. If two rooms each contain valuable objects, but you only have one camera, it can monitor both entrances at the same time.

Discretion comes first
