You should plan the device installation such that it covers both outdoor and indoor light sources.

- Camera for Darkness Varieties- Do not neglect the darkness factor as it affects the image quality. Install low lux level based cameras in dimly-lit areas (most part of the day). And use infrared LED light based cameras for areas exposed to light and darkness in full measure.
Wide and Visible Coverage:
