When it comes to protecting your home, installing smart security cameras is a good way to give you peace of mind. But before you tackle the installation, there’s a few important things to consider.

1. Check the most vulnerable spots on your property

Take a look around at the most vulnerable spots on your property or any entrances that are obscured, such as windows or doors.

2. Don’t hide your cameras

Most unwanted characters consider the presence of cameras when selecting a target and will actively avoid homes with cameras, so they don’t get caught in the act.

3. Ensure there’s enough light for a clear shot

If your cameras don’t have night vision, check there’s ample light for your camera to get a clear shot in the dark. Too much bright light and this may cause the picture to be disrupted.

4. Name your cameras logically

If you’re connecting multiple cameras and they’re in different parts of your home, give them logical names to avoid confusion.

5. Consider your neighbours
