Where do I position security cameras?

Most Swann security cameras have night vision and are robust enough to mount outside. Choosing the right location and how many cameras to include are important decisions for any home or business. Security cameras are like another set of eyes, able to capture blind spots and vulnerable areas, like entrances. They also play a valuable deterrent role to prevent unwanted activity including theft and graffiti.
