Varieties of home security cameras
First, let’s look at the devices you’ll install to design your home security camera system in Albany.
Interior home security cameras: Indoor cameras hang from a wall or rest on a flat surface and capture the room's center view.
Outdoor home security camera: These cameras hang on the exterior of your property to give a look of your yard and main doorways.
Doorbell cameras: These guard your porch and packages and allow for a two-way talk feature.
A good camera system discreetly deters crime
Many times it seems that security cameras directly oppose themselves. On the one hand, you need your security equipment to be easily seen to avert a break-in. On the other hand, you don't want the cameras to be an eyesore to your house. An unsatisfactorily mounted camera, or one that doesn't fit the space, could possibly detract from your home's style.
Fortunately, there are a number of discreet cameras that can still become a hindrance to criminals. A professionally installed wireless security camera will look clean under your gutters or rest on anywhere without sticking out -- unless you look for it. But, if you buy a security camera from Vivint with a light or LED ring when active, it will stand out to would-be criminals, scattering them to the hills.
