How many CCTV cameras do you need for your home?

If you are considering having a CCTV system installed then you need to consider how many cameras you want as this will drastically affect the price. It may eb that you decide to just call in a security firm who specialise in domestic CCTV and ask their advice, but it is always a good idea to have a think yourself as to what you may want. Firstly, you need to decide if you want cameras outside and inside your property. Lots of people don’t like the idea of having security cameras inside so just opt for outside. Next, you need to think about the positioning of the cameras. You will want them to cover the main entrances and exits but should also try and cover the garden permitter and also where you park your car. You need to ensure that you do not set them up to capture too much footage of a neighbour’s property or a public highway. If you are unsure, then it is best to seek legal advice on the matter.

Make sure that your CCTV cameras are positioned high enough that they cannot be tampered with easily. Too many people put the just above the door within easy reach, rendering them useless if a criminal moves them or removes them.
