Types of home security cameras
To help you configure your home security camera system in Philadelphia, you’ll use a mixture of three different models of components.
Indoor home security cameras: Interior cameras are mounted on a wall or reside on a shelf and capture the room's central area.
Exterior home security camera: These cameras mount on the exterior of your home to show a look of your yard and main entrances.
Doorbell cameras: These protect your porch and packages and feature a two-way talk feature.
A good camera system discreetly deters crime
Security cameras possess a competing interest when it comes to form vs. function. On the one hand, you need your security cameras to be front and center to dissuade a break-in. On the other side, you don't want the cameras to be prominent on your home. A poorly mounted camera, or one doesn’t fit the space, might detract from your home's aesthetic.
Luckily, there are plenty of sleek cameras that can still become a hindrance to criminals. A professionally installed wireless security camera can easily hang below your gutters or reside on anywhere without being an eyesore -- unless you need it to. But, if you opt for a Vivint that comes with a light or LED ring that activates, it will stick out to would-be criminals, sending them away.
