Security Product Depot suggest the best place to mount security cameras are where a thief can see them, which deters a burglar from entering the home. An estimated 34% of home burglars’ break-in through the front door. Placing the cameras on the eve of the house will help protect the camera from being disabled or broken.

Over 22% of home burglars use the back door as a popular place of entry because they can’t be seen from the street. The same can be said for windows in the back of the home or those hidden by bushes. For additional protection, place cameras inside your home pointing at the window. You’ll catch the thief’s face as he or she peers in to see what valuables are in sight.

As an additional security measure, install heavy duty Grade 1 door locks on all doors and keep them locked at all times.
