Positioning Evo 360 cameras:

Covering Large Areas
For more detailed surveillance of a large area, add Evolution 360 cameras every 9 to 15 meters (30 to 50 feet) to form overlapping circles of coverage.

Indoor Placements
Ceiling mounted cameras should be high enough to get an overview of the room, but not so high as to be away from the action. A height of 2.7 to 4.6 meters (9 to 15 feet) above the ground is ideal for most commercial buildings. Go higher for large auditoriums, lobbies and malls. Wall mounted cameras should be low enough to fill the image, but not so low as to be obstructed. Try to avoid capturing too much ceiling in your shot.

Outdoor Placements
With ceiling or pendant mounted cameras, generally the higher you can mount the camera, the more area it will cover. Watch out for bright light sources – it is better to be below them than above. Mount at least 4.6 meters (15 feet) above ground to avoid vandalism. For wall mounted cameras, mount at 3.7 to 4.6 meters (12 to 15 feet) above street level, possibly under an eave. Avoid direct sunlight; northern exposures are preferable.
