Important Tips For Positioning Security Cameras

Security cameras capture images in a similar way to¬†taking a photograph, they need to be angled in a way that captures a scene to it’s fullest. This is why the positioning of a security camera is important, after all a camera is only as good as what it can see.

When positioning a security camera be sure that there are no obstructions that might block its viewing area. This can include things like branches and corners of roofs and walls, also try to take the wind into account as it may blow objects into the cameras view.

It’s crucial that a camera isn’t pointed at direct light. If too much light shines or is reflected into the cameras lens it will cause images to be washed out. Finally make sure that cameras are placed in an area that has access to a reliable WiFi signal, if the cameras aren’t wired directly.
