The proper placement of cameras for video surveillance not only brings less work and expenses, it also helps in the detection of intruders. Of course, it is the intention to minimize cameras an overview as good as possible. The goal is to get the perpetrator, or perpetrators to have a good picture for identification, but also what they do, how they come and how they leave.

It is important that you draw a pre-map of what objects you want to monitor and what access roads to here are. In addition, it should also be possible the cables in a safe way. A camera at the front door is very convenient, but if the cable runs through a cable tray on the wall, it can be scuttled by their crews within a few seconds. In addition, we advise often cameras outside always so that the one camera films to the other. Cameras around, preferably at a height that is not without the tools (for example, a staircase or a container).

Use information stickers

The power of CCTV security system is that it often does preventive work. It is therefore important that people are well aware that you are using camera surveillance. In addition, an information sticker can help your defense in the courtroom. Privacy counts heavily, but if a predecessor knew beforehand that video surveillance was present, you’d be better off. Stickers can be found easily online.

Preferably place cameras in a corner of the room
Each camera has a certain viewing angle and a dead angle. Cameras in the corner of a room are difficult to reach through the dead corner. Tip: Do not hang cameras above a window or door so that the burglar/robber can make it relatively easy and unseen.

Do not place security cameras too high
An overly high-security camera close to the object is too high from above. Good to see if anyone is walking, but useless to see who is walking. If cameras can only be high, it is advisable to take some distance from the object or to hang the camera on a wall.

At least one camera is located at least at each outside door
Although burglars/robbers often enter a small window, they usually leave through the front or back door. The most ideal are to shoot doors from two directions:

  • When the burglar/robber enters through the door,
  • When the burglar/robber comes out of the building and goes out.

Camera’s at the door is not hanging out to see what someone does there, these are mainly for identification. Who’s coming in and who’s gone. At shops, we always recommend facing the front door as much as possible because there is often no other entrance. If there is another input, for example, a staff input, a camera is recommended.

It is definitely not necessary for any movie object to have 1 camera. If you hang the cameras in the right place, you can shoot multiple objects with one camera. High-resolution cameras and large viewing angles are great for capturing, for example, the entrance and the cash register at a time.

Movie valuable stuff
In order to collect evidence, it is necessary that you shoot the actions of an intruder or robber. Make a list of items that may be interesting for an intruder. At a store, this is often the cashier/counter, or a shelf of small valuable items such as cosmetics. That while in the home often the living room with TV, laptops, tablets etc. is interesting.

Because we mainly leave the identification to the cameras around the inputs/outputs, the cameras can be a wider angle record. Of course, that does not mean that it is the intention of the camera to capture the perpetrator as well as possible. An extra camera is never wrong, but the building does not have to be full of cameras. Perpetrators often turn around, look around and move a lot, it can be smart to film certain objects from multiple angles.

Keep surveillance cameras out of motion
It happened earlier on this page, film the outside of a building. Pay attention to the rules that apply in your municipality. Often, in the case of statutory privacy, the public road may not be filmed or limited. Images made against the rules may not often be used as evidence. Be careful about this, even if your feelings say something different.

Placing outdoor cameras are very interesting. It often works already preventively. Breakers and robbers prefer the easiest way to go. And how ugly it is, if the neighbors do not have cameras, the risk to the perpetrator is a lot smaller. Keep the camera on the outside so noticeable. Use infrared cameras to get well filmed in the dark.

Consider the sun or light
The sun or a lot of light can overplay the camera, and make the picture all the way, or largely white. The same can happen with infrared cameras if you aim at a bright outdoor light at night. The rest of the image will be black.
