Best Places to Install Video Surveillance
Cameras are typically located at the corners of the building. Cameras are used to secure areas like parking lots, docks, emergency exits, break rooms, halls etc.
The idea is for the cameras to be strategically placed so someone cannot move from one area to another without being seen and recorded the entire time by at least one camera. Bad security camera placement can negate the effects of your security efforts.
Start by identifying high priority areas and then strategize specific spots where a camera may be placed with an unobstructed view of the area.
For exterior areas, research angles and hardware that maximize the viewing area. Parking lots are a commonly monitored area and parking light poles might seem like a great area to place your cameras. Just be sure to make sure the lights from the other poles do not interfere with the video quality. We always recommend focusing your view on doors, walkways and parking lots.
It makes sense to have video surveillance indoors, especially if your business is retail. Focus your attention on merchandise as well as your cash registers. Those are not the only places where you could benefit from camera placement.
