Best Places to Install Security Cameras Around Your House

One of the best ways to ensure the security of your home is by investing in a surveillance camera and security system. With the advances in technology, these types of technology make it easy for you to keep an eye on your house even when you’re not at home. Aside from that, surveillance systems reduce the chances of your house getting broken into. 

Safeway Lock & Key in Parkville offers high-quality security cameras and surveillance systems for business owners and homeowners in the Baltimore area. Whether you’re considering adding security cameras to your house or you’re not entirely sure whether or not you could benefit from this type of security system, today’s blog is for you! 

In today’s blog post, the team at Safeway Lock & Key will be talking about a few of the best places to install security cameras around your house. These places will be the areas that are most frequently invaded or broken into as well as a few of the things to take into consideration with your own property. Let’s get started.


As obvious as it may seem, entryways are one of the best places to install security systems. Surprisingly, the entryways are also the most common place for intruders to enter. This is exactly what makes it one of the best places to install a security camera! Whether you opt for one of the more obvious cameras or one of the doorbell security cameras, it never hurts to have a full-face recording of the individuals coming up to your front door. 

Aside from the front door, make sure that you also have a camera facing the other entryways of your home. If you have a backyard, having a camera that faces the entire back of your home could prove to be more beneficial than having it at eye-level like what we’ve suggested for the front door.

Facing Any Outbuildings

If your property has a couple of buildings on it, it doesn’t hurt to have a camera that is facing them. These buildings may seem like a jackpot to burglars passing by. Whether you’ve got valuable pieces of equipment like a lawnmower or ATV stored in there or it’s nothing but a couple of garbage cans and a well-established family of spiders, having a camera facing these buildings can help catch anyone that may have been interested enough to break into them.

Blind Spots

Security cameras are always good for monitoring the blind spots surrounding your home or commercial building. Properties like these are simply too large for us to have a full field of vision, which is one of the reasons that a surveillance system is so beneficial. By placing security cameras on say, the sides of your home or alley of your commercial building, you can have an eye on some of the less frequently walked parts of the property. Now, you can feel more confident in your security knowing that you have the capability to look at the entire house, all at once, whenever you feel like doing so.

Towards Your Valuables

It’s pretty uncommon for all valuables to be stored in the same place — we get that! Even so, if there’s a room within your house or office that has highly valuable things, say a gun safe, jewelry box, cash register, or something of the like, it’s a good idea to have a security camera facing these areas. These items are going to be what you bring to the police and mention during your police report, and having evidence of them being taken can build an extremely strong case for you.
