Do You Have Enough Coverage?

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.

What about video coverage in your home? Tulsa police have released security video trying to show a robbery. The problem with this video is we never see a good view of this person’s face. The camera is very close to the door and created a glare. Homes are a little harder to mount cameras and this unfortunate person may have no other option, but you want to make sure you have enough coverage to see every possible scenario. You may need to point out someone’s face or license plate.
We highly recommend each person or business to get plenty of coverage of the areas they want to see. Today it isn’t enough to just catch an action taking place but more, if there is clear evidence showing what happened and who did it.
