First and foremost, we always recommend covering the egress points. At a minimum, if there is an incident, you will then be able to see exactly which vehicles were in your neighborhood.
Then we prioritize the following in terms of Flock camera placement:
1. Solar Power - Our cameras require a few hours of direct sunlight each day to function.
2. Proximity - It’s important that our cameras are as close to the lane of traffic they are capturing as possible. We never recommend shooting across lanes of traffic as we run the risk of missing vehicles.
3. Incoming + Outgoing - Ideally, you would have a camera covering incoming traffic and another covering outgoing traffic. However, if you must choose one, we suggest covering incoming traffic.
4. Discretion - We have purposely designed our cameras to be discreet and to fit into the landscape of your community as much as possible. We make every attempt to ensure that during installation, we place the cameras in a location that does not disrupt the aesthetics of the community.
