Setting Up and Locating Your Security Cams
The success key to locate the security cams is by installing them in strategic place. The rule is very simple. Put the cams where you want to keep an eye on.

For larger spaces, consider installing more than one camera so that you can monitor the place from different angles. Always consider putting the cameras in the right angles so that you can see the whole are clearly.
Address each camera with easy names
