Varieties of home security cameras
To help you configure your home security camera system in Peoria, you’ll use a combination of three different models of cameras.
Inside home security cameras: Indoor cameras are mounted on a wall or rest on a table and primarily show the room's main view.
Exterior home security camera: These cameras hang on the exterior of your property to show a view of your yard and primary entrances.
Doorbell cameras: These safeguard your entryway and packages and feature a two-way talk feature.
An ideal camera system discreetly deters crime
The problem with a security camera is that it has two opposing functions. On the one side, you may want your security devices to be front and center to deter a break-in. On the other side, you don't want any device to be an eyesore to your house. An unsatisfactorily attached camera, or one that doesn't fit the space, may ruin your home's aesthetic.
Luckily, there are a number of discreet cameras that can still become a deterrent. A professionally mounted wireless security camera will look clean beneath your gutters or sit on anywhere without sticking out -- unless you want it to. But, if you get a Vivint with a light or LED ring that turns on when triggered, it will stick out to lurkers, sending them away.
