It should look like it was when the house was built. It’s pretty simple to install the systems if you’re looking at covering the front of your house with surveillance cameras because, believe it or not, the increase of burglaries includes burglaries stealing out of cars in driveways and mailbox theft, as well as, package theft from front doors. Tulsa Home Security.
Theft like this recently increased by 10% across the country. So it used to be the burglaries and things like that would take place. 94% of it took place at the front door, but a lot of homes now have metal iron doors installed.
So therefore, metal doors can’t be kicked in. You would break your foot or your leg before you ended up breaking the door.
So there’s an uptick of break-ins taking place in the back of houses and through garage doors. You want to make sure that these areas are protected by surveillance cameras and sensors.
Outside Surveillance Cameras
Now, with that in mind, let’s consider maybe you normally park on the driveway at your house. So therefore, you’d like to be able to cover both sides of your car. If you put a camera on the driveway on one side of the driveway, so you can see the passenger side of the car if your parking straight into the driveway, and then also you put another camera on the other side of the driveway to cross the driveway or put it on the other side of the house to be able to cross the yard and the driveway.
This would allow you to be able to see in most cases, depending on your house and how it’s laid out, both sides of the driveway. You could see anybody walking up to the front door. You would be able to see the mailbox and everything that’s out in front of your home.
The type of camera you install will determine whether or not you’re going to be able to zoom in and identify a person if your installing an analog type camera. Tulsa Home Security.
Some of the surveillance cameras are getting to the point where they have enough clarity to be able to identify anybody out at the street. These cameras are able to zoom in enough to be able to identify anybody at the street or, if you’re criss-crossing your yard with two cameras so that you’d be able to see anybody walking up to the your front door so you are able to identify who it is.
If needed, you can put another camera at the door. Different options are available for this. There are doorbell cameras. Also, you have the standard cameras that you could install.
Now take a look at the inside of your house, as well as, the outside of your house. Some houses have what’s called a soffit. that’s the area right as the overhang of the house and then there’s a flat portion right there. Next to the house and the underside of the roof, that’s called the soffit. If you can, install the camera underneath that soffit so that it keeps the cameras out of the rain, so you won’t have anything on the lens.
Even if it’s raining, you know that that’s a major consideration as well as being able to run a wire up into the attic. From there is a lot easier to do than trying to do it on the face of the house. If you’re going to install a camera on the face of your house, a dome comes on the camera.
We carry 106 degree angle dome cameras. Bullet cameras have an 82 degree angle. A lot of people choose the dome cameras, because they have a wider angle, but at times that may not be necessary.
Do you want water on the lens? It’s not a huge difference, but it can be a difference. So you want to consider these things as you’re planning to install your Tulsa Home Security system.
Other Installation locations
Also, you have to consider the back of the house and the side of the house where the heating air unit could possibly be. Maybe there’s a door on the side of your house leading into the garage. Do you want to cover that door with a camera near the heat and air unit? You might want to cover, because of the vandalism of thieves, wanting to take the copper out of them in the back of the house.
Do you want to be able to watch your kids as they’re out in the backyard playing? Do you want to be able to make sure that nobody’s in your backyard when you’re not at home?
