During the installation of a camera based perimeter surveillance system, there are lots of little details that can get overlooked. What better way to capture all that info than in a simple camera worksheet? What is the objective of the camera? What is the brand and model? What lens is being used? Where is it to be located? How far does it need to detect? How will it be illuminated at night? It doesn’t need to be overly complex, but it will save you hours of headaches by insuring you have all the pertinent details for each camera location. The link below is an sample worksheet that you can modify to align with your installation needs. Don’t forget to keep it updated. Although these types of tools are extremely important in the design phase, they are even more invaluable after you are months into the installation and there are some unanticipated design changes.
