Case Study 3 – diysecurity.ie
This next case study is for the very competition security industry so again another challenge we are happy to take on (we love testing ourselves!).
As the crime rate around the nation continues to rise, more and more homeowners have invested in security systems to enhance the overall security of their home. Security alarms are great, but you should also purchase a few CCTV cameras. These devices will give you the ability to monitor and record criminal activity, so the perpetrator can be prosecuted and locked away. Of course, it is pertinent to make sure your CCTV cameras are strategically located. Below, you’ll find tips for ensuring correct placement.
High And Hidden
Although you’ll want to make sure your cameras are capable of spotting the crook, it is best to ensure the crook is unable to spot your cameras. Cameras can be a good deterrence, but they can also become a target. If the criminal is able to reach your camera, he or she will simply destroy it and make it inoperable, before entering your home. Keep the camera off of the ground and concealed to prevent this from happening.
Secondly, it is also important to make sure your camera is capable of monitoring as much space as possible. Don’t stick the camera in the corner, where it will be unable to spot criminals. Instead, it should be placed in the precise location in which the criminal will most likely attempt to make entry.
Do A Little Trimming
If you happen to live around trees and bushes, you’ll want to trim them down. Not only will this increase the visibility of your camera, but also it’ll help to eliminate hiding places. This will increase the effectiveness of your cameras, while decreasing the potential for a break-in.
