The Best Places to install Security Camera in Your Home in Nairobi Kenya

Are you considering installing home security cameras to improve your home’s security? You may be wondering where you may place these cameras in addition to which cameras are suitable for your situation. MOFFAM ELECTRICALS, the industry’s largest sales, installation, and service field force, has compiled a list of all the places where a security camera could improve your security and peace of mind.

Places you could place your indoor camera

There are some of  major places to place your indoor cameras. indoor cameras keep the peace inside your home. Indoor cameras not only provide critical information after a break-in but also protect your family in other ways. Your indoor security cameras are a great way to keep track of children without having to be in the same room. You can also keep track of your pets from anywhere with a security system that connects to your mobile phone. Putting your indoor cameras in high-traffic areas, children’s play areas, and your pet’s favorite spots can help make sure you know what’s going on at all times.

this places include :

  • High-traffic areas –Areas like a child’s room, house entrances, the kitchen, and living room are all considered high-traffic areas. These are places loved ones spend most of their time.
  • Hallways – Your hallways are where your family pictures hang. They are where you keep valuable paintings and your antique furniture. You want to make sure you have them under surveillance in case anything comes up missing or broken.

Places you could Places your outdoor camera

The most significant portions of your home or business are those that contain something valuable to you.

The most important asset in a home is your family and property. Because your first goal is to safeguard your family, you may choose the complex, main gate, and perimeter fence as your first choice.
CCTV installation should cover all parts of the compound that have anything of value that attackers could target.
The key goal here is to be notified as soon as an intruder attempts to enter your home.

As a result, you must ensure that you cover all aspects of your property.

  • Ground-floor doors and windows: Obviously, burglars can most easily enter homes the exact same way that homeowners do: through doors or windows on the ground floor. It’s important to have cameras on all your ground-level doors and windows, both inside and outside.
  • Main stairs or hallway: Any centralized area where burglars would have to pass through to access most of your home should also be surveilled; this is most likely a hallway on the first floor or a stairway leading up.
  • Common areas: You may also want to secure areas that you commonly use, like a living room or kitchen.
  • Driveway: If you have a driveway, it’s important that you monitor it with an outdoor camera, as this is another common place that thieves will sneak through to enter your home.
  • Yard: Secure both your front and back yard with outdoor cameras, as these can be good hiding places for thieves, especially if your landscaping is overgrown.
  • Second Floor: Do you keep jewelry or other valuables upstairs? While we don’t recommend placing cameras in bedrooms or bathrooms for privacy reasons, be sure to secure a main second floor hallway with an indoor camera; it’s a great way to provide more video evidence, if you end up involved in a criminal investigation.
  • Basement: Although it’s less necessary to monitor a basement as opposed to the ground level and outside of your home, if you keep valuables there, it may also be worthwhile to add a security camera.
  • Garages or detached buildings: Especially if your car or other expensive motorized equipment or tools are in there, be sure to have a camera in your garage. If your Wi-Fi zone doesn’t extend there, either get a range extender or use a camera that doesn’t need Wi-Fi
                                                                                   – Which Areas Should I omit or Not Cover?

As useful as security cameras are for monitoring your home, there are also places that you definitely shouldn’t surveill, for legal and privacy reasons both.

  • Neighbor’s property: Depending on your state’s laws, it may or may not be illegal to surveil someone else’s property. Make sure your security cameras are focused on your home and not your neighbors’.
  • Bedrooms: Although you may keep valuables in your bedroom, it’s best to leave security cameras out to maintain your privacy.
  • Bathrooms: The same goes for bathrooms; it’s unlikely a burglar would get much out of your bathroom anyway, so there’s little to no security risk in leaving them unmonitored.

Things to Keep in Mind Before Camera Installation

You’ve spent a lot of time and effort getting your system just right, but there are a few things you should think about before calling the project accomplished.

Power and connectivity: After your cameras are installed, you’re going to want to make sure everything is connected correctly and working properly. Check your battery life in wireless systems and make sure the Wi-Fi signal is strong enough to get a quality picture. If you’ve wired the system, double-check that every part of the system is powered correctly and working properly.

Out of reach: Position cameras high enough where they are out of reach. The last thing you want after placing your security cameras in the perfect spot is to have someone intentionally or unintentionally move it. For family homes, put them where children have a hard time reaching. For any other place where cameras may be tampered with, mounting them is a great option.

Corners: Using corners instead of having your camera placed directly above the area you want to secure is a better way to cover a larger area. Also, it helps you overlap your other security cameras, so there are never any blindspots.

Lighting: For outdoor cameras, try and have them positioned in areas without too much sun. Glare could prevent you from getting a clear image. Likewise, in dark places, you want to consider cameras made for low light.

Clear shot: Make sure anything you place near the cameras after installation doesn’t block their view.
