Knowing When You Have Adequate Security Coverage

September 20th, 2019

Do you know what it takes to make sure that your home and business are secure? Do you have what you need to cover every area of the property so you can see everything in case of an incident? 

Enough is Enough

Some people mistakenly believe that they only need one security camera for their home or business to secure everything. However, if you have a larger lobby, office spaces, or a front porch, then you want to make sure that the camera you have is able to offer you the coverage you need.

A surveillance system is a good way to record events so you can have access to all the information that you need to build a case if something were to happen at work or on your property. If you can't see every corner and every angle, you are not able to get the full picture of what happened. 

Cover All the Angles

It is so important to make sure you have the coverage you need with your security system. You want to make sure that all the action is recorded, the people's faces are in clear view, and you have access to all the details of the incident. Missing even one of these can result in a lost case because you weren't able to see everything you needed to see.

Is one security camera enough to catch the details of the person's face or their license plate? Or is this all in a blindspot? Mounting cameras at a home can sometimes prove to be difficult because they are sometimes mounted too close to the door. When this happens, there can be a glare which makes it harder to make out these details.

Finding the Right Coverage

Every residential home or business needs to make sure that they are getting the coverage they need when they invest in their security system. When choosing how many cameras you are going to use, it is recommended that you take a closer look around the property. 

You want to make sure that you have cameras situated at all the entry points, so you have a clear view and different angles.

When doing this, you also need to consider how large the space is that you need to cover. You should always choose higher quality cameras that ensure you can capture those fine details you need in case something happens. 

You also want to make sure to eliminate any blindspots there may be otherwise you are making it easy for a burglar or other potential criminal to hide and take cover outside of the property.

You need more than just a few of the actions caught on tape. You need to make sure you have evidence to prove the entire event took place so you can have that clear evidence you need to make your case. The security cameras only work well for your home and business if they can show that evidence of what happened and who was doing it.
