How to Design a Security Camera System for a Large Retail Space

Here's how a surveillance system was set up for a large retail space. From theft to unruly customers, there are many reasons to have security cameras in a store nowadays. It's always a good idea to have footage especially when inventory and cash exchanging are involved. The location in this floor plan has a great layout to cover all their retail security needs.

large retail store security camera floorplan

Explanation

Goals: The goal of this surveillance system is to protect the employees and owners of the retail stores from loosing merchandise, but also ensure they are providing the best customer service.

The Red cones are the line of sight for the Sheriff 4.0. You will have a clear enough picture with these cameras to be able to recognize someone at 50 feet, because they shoot in 4MP at 25 frames per second. They also do 101 degrees of coverage which you can see in the floor plan.

The Green cone is for the line of sight for our next most popular line of cameras which adjustable lenses that can have up to 4x optical zoom. Just like with a point-and-shoot camera, when you zoom in on an area, your field-of-view narrows. With 4x optical zoom and either the The Detective 4.0 or the The Viking 4.0 you will have a 30 degree view and will be able to recognize someone over 100 feet away.*

The Turquoise cones represent an audio capable camera called the Informant 4.0. In the floor plan the customer wanted to monitor what was going on in the kiosk area. With the Informant's built in mic, and 4MP resolution with 101 degrees of coverage, the owner could see and hear clearly.

The Orange cones are showing the Deputy 4.0. This camera has line of sight for recognizing someone up to 50ft away. With a resolution of 4MP @ 25 frames per second, it is a great camera for wide open areas.

IK10 (highest possible rating) Physical Damage Protection

Seeing in shadows: Understanding WDR

The Sheriff is very similar to our Deputy model - except that it has a 1K10 vandal proof glass dome surrounding the lens. Glass domes are iconic and what people usually think of with a security camera, but the glass has benefits and drawbacks. Despite our logo being a glass dome camera shape, most of our models don't have them anymore because they aren't that DIY friendly. To install most glass dome cameras, you have to remove the outer dome to reveal the mounting screws and then screw the dome back on after mounting the camera. In more humid areas, this can trap moisture inside the camera; for this reason, most glass dome cameras are installed indoors. The Deputy comes with some silicon moisture absorbing beads to help combat this issue (please don't remove them). Glass domes are sometimes used outdoors especially in situations like college campuses or apartment complexes where "non-destructive vandalism," such as turning the camera away from its intended target, is common. Glass domes do not hide which way the camera is pointed. IK10 is the highest measurement rating for protection from physical damage for security camera products, so it should protect against some destructive vandalism as well.
