The Four Most Important Places To Install Security Features In Your Home

July 22nd, 2019

Every home is different and has unique security needs. However, no matter if you have a townhouse in ( or a sprawling acreage on the outskirts of town, there are certain areas of your property that you need to include in your security system plans. These areas are the most targeted and a layer of security can provide your family with the protection it needs to stay safe when criminals strike. Here are the four most important places to install your security system.

1. The Perimeter Of Your Property

The very best place to put security cameras and sensors is on the perimeter of your home. No matter the size of your property, being alerted of an intruder’s presence before they get to your home can be life savings. In those few short moments, you will have enough time to secure your home, get somewhere safe, and inform law enforcement of the invasion. Fortunately with new technologies, outdoor video cameras integrate with sensors and alert systems, offer higher resolution and night vision, and are impervious to weather and tampering. These technologies are also extremely affordable. 

2. The Primary Entry Points Around Your Home

In general criminals use the same access points as we do when entering our homes. That makes your most vulnerable areas your front, back, and side doors. That includes both standard doors and sliding or French doors. These are the areas with the most foot traffic,  so installing surveillance cameras and sensors by your doors offer a layer of protection. A great option is a smart doorbell camera. These systems send a notice to your smartphone when someone is approaching, capture footage of the individual, and give you time to react.

3. The Secondary Entry Points Around Your Home

The secondary entry points around your home are areas include windows and larger vents. Criminals often target these areas because they think they are largely ignored. In most cases, they are correct. However, simply equipping these areas with security cameras and sensor technology can thwart their plans. Make sure to include the windows on second and third story windows. You’d be surprised how many criminals will climb to enter a home. 

4. Garages, Driveways, And Outbuildings

Finally, homeowners often focus so much on securing their main homes they forget about their secondary buildings. Cars, lawnmowers, and tools are all very valuable to thieves and often kept in sheds, garages, and driveways. Thieves know most homeowners don’t secure their outbuildings, so they consider them easy targets. However, using the same technology around your home, you can protect these valuables as well. The best part is that all of these cameras and sensors can be fully integrated into the same easy-to-monitor system.
