Home Security Camera Installations In Bergen County, New Jersey

home security camera installer in Bergen County NJAs a resident of Bergen County, New Jersey, a home security camera system may be something that is part of your list when thinking about protecting your family and home from break-ins, burglary, theft, and other home-related crimes. In fact, homes without some type of security system in place are three times more likely to be robbed. Furthermore, 65% of home burglaries occur during the day when it is likely that no one is home(1).  Bergen is a well to do area with almost a million people, which also puts it at risk for break-ins, because the data shows median incomes are relatively high and the likelihood that expensive valuables are in homes is very high. In fact, the County has an estimated 335, 730 households according to information from the 2010 Census (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bergen_County,_New_Jersey). With 32% of those households having children under 18, the risks extend to personal safety beyond the need to protect assets.

It will give you peace of mind knowing that your family members left at home are safe while you are at work, with friends or doing some errands.

Some of the most common locations for security cameras to be installed in and around a home are by:

  • Entrances to the home. This includes front, back and side doors.
  • Off-street windows. Since these windows are often in the back of the house or secluded from street view by a fence or landscaping.
  • Backyard. Once again, since it’s more difficult to see activity in the back of the house from the street, it’s ideal to have a camera here.
  • Driveway. If you have a long driveway, you may want to consider installing one at the foot of your driveway so you can see people as they enter your property.
  • Front and back of the house. For indoor cameras, it’s a good idea to have them placed at both front and back entrances to the home.

Ideally, you want to install cameras anywhere that is blocked from the street view or could potentially provide a covering for a burglar to enter your home. This includes:

  • Side entrance gates
  • Outdoor basement stairs
  • Garage
  • Second floor
