Each camera should be placed in an appropriate designated location to capture important videos. Those locations like main entrances, hallways, intersection points and exits where there is a high density of people moving around. Also, it can be installed in parking areas, perimeters and blind spots locations that require a high level of security to monitor and document moving instances in certain areas.

The pinhole camera is simply a small hole like you would make with the tip of a pin, particularly installed in a location without being detected. The LPR cameras are used to read car registration plates to help obtain more information in high-density traffic premises. The PTZ cameras stand for pan/tilt/zoom, allows you to tilt the camera viewing, up-down and left-right. Lastly, thermal cameras can be used during night time that shows the apparent surface temperature of the instance being measured.
