- Entry points like doors, back doors, upper stair windows
The cameras should have access to a wide view angle and should cover a large area. They should be placed in such a way that they get wide coverage of angle. Doorways, Pathways, Garages are the ideal place to install these cameras as they allow you to see the incoming and outgoing of every person while having an eye on your whole property.

You can just focus only on videos when the lights are on to catch the thieves. For this aspect also you can seek expert’s advice and exploit the total benefit of your security systems.
