When you install a security camera, the first thing is to decide the purpose and the place you plan to put your camera.

Thieves and burglars aren’t something that everyone has to deal with. Some of us just want to keep track of deliveries or watch who comes to our house while we’re gone. Others look for a way to keep tabs on their loved ones or pets.

How to Install Outdoor Camera

The major difference between indoor and outdoor cameras is the capacity to withstand the weather. Check the camera’s operating temperature and intended application before purchasing it, the last thing you want is for your new camera to break down in snowfall or a storm. Netvue Outdoor Cameras all come in with IP66 protection to provide a long-lasting experience for your outdoor security system.


In terms of position, above the garage door or gazing over a front or back porch are the most frequent locations for an outdoor camera. But make sure your garage camera has a wide field of view. If you’re using a porch camera, make sure it’s pointing primarily towards a driveway or walkway so you can capture as much motion as possible with a limited field of view.

In the Netvue collection, let’s take a look at Vigil Pro. It’s a perfect outdoor solution for your property. It is not only suitable for all weathers and IP66 waterproof, but also provides a 3MP (2304 x 1296p) super HD live video, and an incredible field of view so that no details will be missed.

How to Install Indoor Camera

When it comes to installing the indoor camera, it can be as easy as finding the proper location, connecting it in, turning it on, and syncing it with your mobile or desktop app. While some indoor cameras may require drilling, the majority of the cameras we’ve seen only require a screwdriver.

A good indoor camera should have a wide field of vision, which you may achieve by placing it on a higher shelf or corner. A better place will have a clear view of the room, a secure location to hide the camera from burglars, and minimal foot traffic to avoid unplugging the camera or tripping on the cord.

If you’re looking for an indoor camera and hesitate to choose one. Netvue Home Cam may shoot your troubles. With its tiny body, you can place it wherever you want at your home or office, and always stay connected to your beloved ones from anywhere and anytime.

What About Storage?

Local storage options vary by camera, they may include micro SD cards, USB drives, digital video recorders. Although it’s for the owner’s privacy and convenience, it’s still possible that thieves may take out the storage cards and run away.

If you use local storage, you’ll need to keep your cameras out of harm’s way while still being able to access them when you need them. But if you go with cloud storage, you can check footage on your phone or desktop apps regardless of the camera’s condition.
