Cafe Security Camera System
A new cafe is being revamped and re launched in a metropolitan area. The owner is concerned about theft of cash as well as vandalism to their back entrance. The owner is on a tight budget and does not want to exceed 4 cameras. The ceilings are suspended which is great for a security camera system – the cameras can be located anywhere and cable runs are really simple. None of the distances involved are huge, however the owner still wants great quality images.
|Camera 1||Open Dome Turret Camera with 2.8-12mm Lens||Due to a retractable awning to the front the camera will be lower than ideal. The open dome camera is vandal resistant to protect against this. This camera can look along the mounting surface and will get a great image of anyone to the front of the store|
|Cameras 2 & 3 ||Open Dome Turret Camera with 8mm Lens||Positioned to get an identification image of every person as they enter the cafe. It was recommended to use motion detection with this camera to enable quick and simple review of the people entering the cafe. The 8mm fixed lens camera will still produce a great quality image. Due to the suspended ceiling, the camera can be installed wherever is best for the security camera. This means a varifocal lens is not required – instead the distance from the camera to the door will be adjusted to exactly the right distance. This also helps the owner with their budget.|
|Camera 4||Bullet Camera with 2.8-12mm Lens||Primarily to cover the rear entrance to the building. The owner is not concerned about the windows to the kitchen. The bullet camera is the perfect choice for this location and can be mounted higher on the wall.|
Extensions of the Surveillance System
The proposed system calls for 4 security cameras which makes the 4 Camera HD-TVI recorder seem the ideal choice. From experience, small business owners find their system to be incredibly useful once installed and often find additional locations they want to have covered it was suggested that the owner purchased our 8 Camera HD-TVI recorder. This would allow more camera views within the cafe or on the side that is currently exposed.
