It is typical to believe that having one camera that covers an entire room is all you need to keep your business or home secure, but is that true? What if the area you want to cover is a lobby, a large office space, or even your front porch, will one camera be enough to see what you will need to see in case of an indecent?
A surveillance camera is used to record an event or series of event to help provide the user with all the information they may need. In most cases, those surveillance systems are there to build a case against an employee for stealing, help solve who started a fight with two customers, or even if the UPS man is throwing your packages across your yard. Take for example, the terrible accident of Kristiana Coignard, recently she was shot by a local police officer because she charged at him. The officer claims she had a butchers knife in her hand and ‘I have a gun’ written on her hand. We cannot see a knife in the young girl’s hand and since the video was released, it has brought a lot of attention whether she had a weapon or not. The point here being, if the station had another camera looking from the other side, maybe we could get a better understanding of what happened. The surveillance video is shown below.
