Why you Need a Wireless Home Security Camera

By: Artur Knowles

A wireless home security camera is a must-have for every home regardless of how luxurious or average your home is. It's not a sign that there are very valuable things inside the house. But to all people, the most valuable thing should be the security of their loved ones. A wireless home security camera can come in all shapes and sizes. They can be installed just about anywhere; better yet, they can be disguised just like any thing.

Your Ceiling

The most typical area to place a wireless home security camera (or any camera for that matter) is on the ceiling or in the corner of one. This is because the wireless home security camera can capture a wider scope of the area that it is directed. This is especially true of cameras that are set up with the lenses set at an angular position.

A neat trick to fool people into thinking that there are no cameras is to install a wireless home security camera that looks like a smoke alarm. Of course, there should be a real smoke alarm in the room as well so that you don't end up creating a hazard rather than a secure area. Another trick is to have a dummy camera out in the open and to conceal the real wireless home security camera within the ceiling itself if possible.

Around The House

A wireless home security camera can be disguised as anything and this means it can be installed anywhere. Some people have installed them in flower arrangements to conceal them, on desk lamps, and even sewn them into stuffed toys that just lie around the room. If the object is big enough for the wireless home security camera, then that object can instantly be used as a home security peripheral. Of course, the transmitter of the wireless home security camera should not be covered or else the console that receives all the recorded data may not be able to pick up on its signal.

The Issue

Choosing to conceal these wireless cameras from people will probably open up a variety of issues. Of course, this brings about questions on invasion of privacy, so at least have people be aware that there are cameras around the house but you do not have to reveal their locations.

Another thing you can do is to avoid installing cameras in places of private personal activities such as the bedroom, toilet and bath. Typical installations are found in hallways or facing doorways that give entrance to homes and some wireless home security cameras can also be found outside facing the lawn or backyard. Be sensitive about other peoples sensitivities and you may not have to be answering to arguments on invasion of privacy or other issues.

Security cameras not only protect your home but also protect the interests of your family and your loved ones. Also, when you are away from home and your house gets burgled, you can always play back what was recorded and increase your chances at capturing the culprits responsible. Haven't got a wireless home security camera in your house yet? Perhaps now is the time to reconsider.
