How do you decide how many security cameras you need on your home in Elk Grove?
Most average sized homes will need about 5 outdoor cameras to provide full coverage around the house.
If you home is an average sized house – approximately 1500 square feet to 3000 square feet and is setup like a typical house – with the garage door on one side – with a driveway and the front door on the other side – here is how you would setup your security cameras.
1- One camera on the side of the garage door. This camera will see the driveway to the street and the front of the house. So if some walks on to your property this camera will see them.
2- One camera at the front door. Once the person on your property walks past the garage door and they are at your front door – the camera on the side of the garage will no longer see them. so you want this camera at the front door so you can see them when they ring your door bell. In addition you can program the camera system to alert you when it detects some one at the front door.
3-One camera at the back of the house – unless you have an object obstructing your view from one side to the other – then you might need 2 cameras.
4-One camera on the left side of the house
5-One camera on the right side of the house If you want to put cameras inside the house – each room you want to put a camera in will require at least one unless you have multiple rooms that are open to each other – for example – the family rom and living room – then one camera might cove both rooms.
So 5 cameras outside the house will give you coverage around the house.
You can also add more cameras inside the house if you wish. To get some help choosing the right security cameras system for your home in Elk Grove Ca – give us a call today at 916-262-7191 to get a free consultation and free estimate today.
