If you are considering have a CCTV system installed in your property then you need to think carefully about the positioning of the cameras but also the hard drive box (if your system has one). The first decision you need to make is what type of system you want. The cheapest systems have IP cameras that can have SD cards installed. They run off the WiFi usually but may be able to be hard wired in to your router. They will usually have an app where you can view live and past footage and set up alerts.

If you want a system that is a bit more advanced then you will need to go for one with a recording box that can have multiple cameras attached to it. Often the system will come with a certain number of cameras but you may be able to add more. When choosing the location of the cameras you need to try and put them in a place where they cannot be easily reached. They should be high up but at an angle that gets the coverage you need. It is also important to place the recording box in the correct place too. You don’t really want to have it installed in a living room or kitchen as if you do have a break in it will be easy for the criminals to steal it.
