Outdoor Security Camera Installation 101
1. Get the right cameras
Think about what you want to accomplish with your cameras before you run out and make a purchase.
To get the most out of your investment, we recommend cameras with:
- HD resolution for crisp, clear images.
- WiFi capabilities so your cameras can connect.
- Infrared LED night vision for true 24/7 security.
- Motion detection that triggers auto recording.
Do your research and check ratings and reviews.
2. Consider range of view
Once you determine what you want out of your cameras and you’ve made your purchase, choose where you want to place them.
