Types of home security cameras
To help you set up your home security camera system in Columbia, you’ll want a mixture of three different types of components.
Interior home security cameras: Indoor cameras attach to a wall or reside on a table and capture the room's central area.
Outside home security camera: These cameras mount on the exterior of your house to show a look of your yard and main doorways.
Doorbell cameras: These guard your entryway and packages and allow for a two-way talk feature.
An ideal camera system discreetly deters crime
The issue with a security camera is that it has two differing needs. On the one hand, you may want your security equipment to be visible to deter a break-in. On the other side, you don't want the cameras to be an eyesore to your house. A poorly attached camera, or one that’s too large the space, might hinder your home's look.
Thankfully, there are plenty of discreet cameras that can still become a hindrance to criminals. A professionally mounted wireless security camera will look clean below your gutters or reside on top of any surface without being an eyesore -- unless you need it to. But, if you buy a Vivint that comes with a light or LED ring that turns on when triggered, it will stick out to would-be criminals, scattering them away.
