Banner installation challenges



When performing a camera installation, make sure to document the installation properly.

This is not done for its own sake; there are many reasons for it. First of all, it is crucial for the user when it comes to future installations. Furthermore, it is a matter of security for the user to know vital safety and planning information, such as how the cables are wired. Proper documentation can also help to reduce customer calls.

All aspects of the physical installation should be documented during the actual installation process. This documentation should include, but not be limited, to the following:

  • Physical network layout showing all cable locations and the cable and port numbering scheme
  • Camera and server IP addresses
  • As-built floor plan showing camera locations
  • Camera parameter setup list

The documentation required by the end user can then be handed over at the proper time, allowing for the end user to verify the information and also make better use of the training provided prior to system startup.
