How to Design a Security Camera System for an Open Floorplan Warehouse

Here's how a surveillance system for a warehouse with a general open floorplan:

open warehouse security camera floorplan


Goals: The goal of this surveillance system is to guard the main storage space of the warehouse. This warehouse has nothing obstructing the view - so, no aisles or structures that would block the camera's view and no loading dock to contend with. It has two entrances and has 3 cameras to cover them. The employee door only has one camera and the main door has two - one on either side.

This warehouse is very large, (each red code is supposed to represent 50 feet), so the red areas show where you would be able to ID a face. You will certainly be able to see someone at all times in the space, but your facial ID areas are marked in red.

The Red cones are the line of sight for our most commonly used camera: the Warrior 2.0. You will have a clear enough picture with these cameras to be able to ID someone at 50 feet, because they shoot in 1080P at 30 pictures per second.

Seeing in shadows: Understanding WDR

The Warrior is our most popular camera model. It is tied with the Deputy 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 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.

Detect someone up to 100 feet

"Detecting" a face means being able to tell that a human face is in the picture.


Recognize someone up to 50 feet

"Recognizing" a face refers to being able to say "I have seen that person before" - even if you don't know or can't place who it is.


Identify someone up to 25 feet

"Identification" refers to being able to make out identifiable marks with enough certainty to make a sketch or claim.
