The First Floor

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 81% of burglars enter homes through the first floor, with 34% of those coming through the front door. Some may think video doorbells are a novelty, but they can truly help you surveil your home and potentially deter theft of packages and unwanted entry through the front door. Not only are you making your home safer, but you’re able to add convenience because you can see who’s at the door without before answering. Other ground-level security camera locations include the rear entry, garage doors, and by first-floor windows. Placement is also essential. Wide-angle cameras should be placed to see 75 to 180 degrees without obstruction, while focus cameras should aim at specific areas with around 45 to 75 degrees of viewing space. And of course, be sure to place your outdoor surveillance cameras out of reach, typically about nine feet above the ground.

Detached Structures

There are likely valuables on your property beyond the walls of your home. A tool shed, a detached storage area or garage, and cars in the driveway are all valuables that are often overlooked when homeowners take a DIY route to security camera installation. Often, thieves target these structures due to the lack of visible security cameras or poor lighting. Avoid thieves taking advantage of your home by placing cameras in high and visible locations, and add exterior lighting around your property to deter thieves.

Choose Local for Your Security Camera Installation Company


Support the Community While Receiving Best-In-Class Service from Launch Systems

You’ve likely heard the phrase, “Shop Local.” This phrase encourages people to buy locally produced goods and services instead of those originating outside of the community. Supporting local businesses helps boost the economy and reduces carbon emissions when we avoid shopping online. The mentality is often showcased with acts such as purchasing food from local farmers and shopping at local retail stores. But the “Shop Local” concept can apply to hiring local security companies, as well. There are several national security companies out there, but how do they compare to your local security expert? Keep reading to learn why hiring a local security camera installation company is the best decision you can make for your Irvine, CA property.

One-Size-Fits-All Doesn’t Work

While national brand names are easy to recall due to large marketing budgets and commercials, these companies aren’t able to look out for your best interest. Big businesses serve customers nationwide, meaning their solutions are not custom-designed and installed specially for your needs in the Irvine area. Individual preferences you have for your property are overlooked for the sake of providing homeowners with a one-size-fits-all go-to security solution.

Customized Solutions

A local company will provide you a custom security and surveillance installation experience. During the initial personal consultation, Launch Systems will review your wants and compare them to products available on the market. A local company stays abreast of the latest industry trends and takes the time to provide you with the newest and greatest technology solutions. A local company has more to lose than a national chain, so they’ll do their best to support your home. This means you will have the latest high-definition surveillance cameras and software upgrades available to you. The national chain may offer a great deal on a camera bundle package nationwide, but if you have an expansive property, that blanket solution simply will not work for you.

Support Your Community

By supporting local small businesses, you are supporting the community where you live. Local companies create local jobs, hire, and help their neighbors. Shopping locally also reduces your personal carbon footprint, because you don’t have to commute very far to enter their front door.   If you’re ready to make your Irvine, CA home safer and more secure, shop local with Launch Systems.
