Choosing a camera location will depend on a number of considerations including:

  • Desired angle of view of the building/location

  • Available mounting locations

  • Sun direction

It is recommended that your camera be aimed “away” from the sun for best results. For most locations in North America, this means that the camera should NOT face in a Southerly direction (however, if mounted at a higher location, looking more downward, southerly facing may be acceptable).

Higher mounting locations generally provide better image viewpoints.
