Best places to install a security camera

Prama video surveillance and security cameras are a great way to keep track of what is going on in and around your property. They can be mounted just about anywhere, but there are some really good places that you should consider placing them.

There are many places in and around your home where you could potentially put one, but not all of them will be equally effective. 

The first thing to decide when looking for the best place for a security camera is what type of surveillance system will be needed. If you stay in an area with high crime rates, then you should definitely look at getting both interior and exterior cameras installed on various levels of your house. You should also make sure that there are no barriers between the camera, and where it needs to capture footage from. 

With that being said, we will discuss some best stops to install your security cameras (based on our experience).

Front and Backyard

The front yard is a great place to have an outdoor Prama CCTV security camera, but it should be placed in the back of your property where you can actually set up the wiring correctly. If you want to cover both areas with one high-quality camera, then make sure that it has an audio feature so that you are able to hear what’s going on outside.

Security cameras like this are a great way to keep track of the front and backend of your property. The best spot for placing them is in an area that has some deterrent between it and where you want footage from (i.e., trees, bushes). This will ensure that people cannot determine precisely where the camera is located by looking at it.


If you are looking for a camera to cover just the front door of your house, then there are a few great spots to choose from. One is above the door so that you can see who is coming and going, and another option is to put it on the side of the door so that you can get an idea of the person’s height as well as their general appearance.

The best place to set up a security camera at the front door is on the side of the wall that you can see from your house (i.e., right next to or above it). This way, you will not miss anything, and people cannot tell where the footage is coming from by looking for wires alone.

High-traffic areas in your home

If you want to make sure that your home is safe, then you should definitely place a CCTV camera in high-traffic areas like the living room and kitchen. These are both great places because there will always be people coming and going, so it won’t look weird if someone sees or hears something while they are passing by.

The best spots to place security cameras in high-traffic areas of your home is either above the area or just to the side. This will ensure that you can see what’s going on without looking too suspicious (i.e., no wires).

Garages and Driveways

Another great place to install an HD camera is in your garage or driveway. This is a good spot because it can help you to keep track of who is coming and going, as well as what they are doing while they are there.

If you want to place a security camera in your garage or driveway, then the best spot for it is at the entrance. This will allow you to see people as they are coming and going, and it is also a great place to put a motion sensor so that you can capture footage of whatever is happening while your vehicle is not there.


There are many different places where you can put Prama security cameras in order to keep your home safe. The best spots vary depending on what you want to surveillance, but we have outlined some of the most common ones in this blog post. Make sure to consider all of your needs and choose the spot that is right for you!
