Below are top 3 places to install security cameras:

Front Door

About 33 percent of intruders enter a home through the front door. Hollow doors are exceptionally easy to kick in. If your home is outfitted with an old wood door or one that’s hollow, replace it with a new solid wood or metal clad door. Then every time you enter or exit your home, arm your home security system. It isn’t a bad idea to fortify your home’s entrances with security cameras and motion lighting. Source:  Safewise

Back Door

Another 22% of home burglars enter through the back door, so you need a camera here, as well (and if you have side doors, they count as back doors for sake of statistics). The bottom line is, arm each entry door with a camera. Again, make the effort to place your camera out of the reach of human hands, or to protect it from projectiles, like rocks or sticks or anything an intruder might hurl at it.
Expert Tip: Be sure to install a camera that’s both weatherproof and is equipped with night vision.  Source:  Safesoundfamily

First-floor window

Many burglars break into your home through a first-floor window, typically one not facing the street, by either breaking the glass or by opening it.
Yes, many homeowners forget to lock their windows, giving burglars an easy entry-point.
Regardless, you should place a camera either:

  • Above an easy-to-access window
  • Inside your home, pointing it at the window.

Placing a camera at this entry point has the double benefit of catching the faces of “window peepers.” That is, those who look through the window to scout out your home before they decide to break in, possibly at a later date. Source:  Ackermansecurity
