Varieties of home security cameras
To help you set up your home security camera system in Yakima, you’ll use a combination of three different models of cameras.
Indoor home security cameras: Interior cameras are mounted on a wall or sit on a flat surface and capture the room's main view.
Outside home security camera: These cameras attach on the exterior of your property to show a view of your yard and main entryways.
Doorbell cameras: These safeguard your entryway and packages and allow for a two-way talk feature.
A good camera system prudently deters crime
Security cameras possess a competing interest when it comes to form vs. function. On the one hand, you want your security cameras to be visible to dissuade a break-in. On the other side, you don't want them to be an eyesore to your home. A poorly attached camera, or one that’s too large the space, might ruin your home's look.
Fortunately, there are plenty of discreet cameras that can still be a repellent. A professionally installed wireless security camera will look clean under your gutters or rest on a desk without being noticeable -- unless you want it to. But, if you opt for a Vivint that has a light or LED ring that turns on when triggered, it will stick out to creeps, scattering them far away.
