How to Design a Security Camera System for a Church

A lot of churches or temples unfortunately are thought of as easy targets for vandalism. Here is a floorplan showing how security camera can keep out unwelcome trespassers.

church security camera floorplan

Explanation

Goals: The main goal of placing security cameras in and around a place of worship, is preventing an unwelcome guest from coming in, the safety of the members, and vandalism around the property. They often can be dormant on certain days allowing for a lot of vacant time. The time lapse gives vandals the opportunity to destruct, and then never be caught. Also, a church parking lot can often be secluded or dark. Members could be concerned about walking to their cars alone, or in late hours of the night.


The Red cones represent how far away you can recognize someone with our widest angle 4MP security camera, called the Deputy 4.0. With this camera you will recognize someone up to 50ft away with it's 101 degree field of view. This camera is great for the corners of the hallway in this floor plan.


The Green cones show you how far away you can recognize someone with the Warrior 4.0. With this camera, doing 4MP resolution, you will recognize someone up to 75ft away with 80 degrees field of view. The parking lot and external part of the building will benefit from this camera models ability to see distance.


The Yellow cone shown in the floor plan is the Warrior 2.0, recognizing someone up to 50ft away. A 2MP resolution with 85 degrees of coverage was a good choice for this smaller, single entrance to the church.


The Turquoise cone, or circular image in this case, is a 360 degree fisheye camera, the Radius 8.0. This panoramic camera is perfect for mounting in the center of a room on the ceiling, to catch the children's area of the church.

The Deputy is our second most popular camera model. It is tied with the Warrior in terms of how easy it is to install and position, since neither camera requires you to remove any part of the camera to screw it into the wall/ceiling/soffit. This makes it ideal for outdoor use as you don't have a tendency to trap moisture in the lens, as is common with dome cameras, where you have to remove the outer glass dome to mount them. The 110 or 118 degree lens is best used to cover an entire room at once (by installing it in a corner) or to cover a wide area of a smaller yard, as wider lenses always decrease how far away you can identify a person of license plate. Although you can use this camera inside or out, the most common uses of the Deputy models (the camera comes in 2MP, 4MP, or 4K variants) are to install the camera in the corner of a room or to cover front doors and porches outdoors. Two Deputies are often installed back to back to make a 220-236 degree view, such as in the middle of a wall. (This two camera solution has less of that dizzying "fisheye" look that is common with 180 degree cameras and is also usually cheaper.)

This makes it ideal for outdoor use as you don't have a tendency to trap moisture in the lens, as is common with dome cameras, where you have to remove the outer glass dome to mount them. The 81 degree lens is great balance between covering a large area and identifying faces and license plates. Although you can use this camera inside or out, the most common use of the Warrior models (the camera comes in 2MP, 4MP, or 8MP) is to cover the side of buildings or large sections of yards.

The Detective has a motorized telephoto lens that allows you to optically zoom in to see a distant area more clearly. You can adjust the angle of view with our apps, over the web, or via your SCW NVR. Just like with a point-and-shoot camera or a pair of binoculars, when narrow the field-of-view, you zoom in on an area and you can see more detail in that area. Although the Detective is a popular camera for homes that have a mid-range (35-100 foot) points of concern like gates, roads or driveways, this camera is even more frequently used is corporate environment such as long and narrow warehouse aisles.

If this is not your exact scenario, you would need to modify our pre-made systems slightly. This is very easy to do.

We've listed a 12 channel pre-made system below. You could add that to the cart, which will break it up into its individual parts, and then modify the numbers of each camera. You would also want to add a Radius camera, as needed. If all of this seems like to much trouble, we can also send you a custom quote as well.

*If you would like a 2MP camera for smaller indoor areas, you may want to consider the Deputy 2.0 model.
