Surveillance camera placement guide, a few useful tricks

The first step in solving any problem is a thorough needs analysis.  Video Surveillance Camera selection and Placement is no different.  The first part is easy: defining whether the camera is a replacement for an existing camera or a new camera where one does not now exist.

One should not assume that because a camera is in a given location or a specific TYPE camera is in a given location, one just like it “only newer” should be used.  PTZ cameras are a perfect example.  In the days of analog, PTZ cameras were usually set to “pan” slowly left to right in a sweeping motion.  Murphy’s law often prevailed and the incident that happened was out of view of the camera because the camera was pointing right when the incident happened in the left Field of View.
