Camera Base Station should be placed on a flat surface like a counter top, book shelf, or a credenza, at a minimum of 6 feet (~2m) away from your router if it’s near one, and about 3 feet (~1m) above the ground.
We recommend an area in your home that’s typically the busiest. For most people, this tends to be the kitchen or the family room. Some people like to keep a watchful eye over the main entrance of their home, so they place Camera Base Station facing the entry door. Wherever you decide to place it, know that Camera Base Station lets you see what’s happening, and sounds a loud alarm to deter and detract intruders. Please refer to our placement guide for further detail.
