Home Security is Science Not a DIY Project
When it comes to the serious business of securing your home from potential intruders there are myriad considerations that must be taken into account. After all, if crime were prevented by the simple presence of a camera we would now live in a crime free world since everyone’s smartphone has HD video capability. So it takes more than the mere presence of a camera to secure a home from those with bad intentions.
Security cameras in Toronto are more than just a way to record someone breaking into your home. They’re also one of the most dependable ways available to prevent someone from breaking into your home and a lot of that ability rests on how the cameras are deployed. Once a potential vulnerability is identified smart placement of the surveillance camera is crucial. That is because there are a number of factors that will weigh on the ability of the camera to do its job effectively including:
- Image clarity: A camera should never be installed until you can be sure that the image it will produce is clear in all weather conditions and at all times of the day and night.
- Visibility: Security cameras are only an effective deterrent if they can be seen by potential intruders. So while it may seem like a good idea to hide cameras from view, doing so will only embolden the would-be intruder by making them think they have worry free access.
- Camera Security: Yes even security cameras need protection. It’s always a good idea to connect the cameras to surge protectors lest they be accidentally burned out. This type of camera can be sensitive to changes in voltage and so protecting them in this fashion will help ensure they’re there when you need them.
