When you have a location that has a large gathering of
people and money you will likely find a location that needs video
surveillance. Today’s large scale plazas offer restaurants, multiple
level retail shops, and movie theaters that invite large crowds to shop
and mingle. The sure size of the buildings make surveillance coverage
challenging for security personnel. When deploying surveillance cameras
in shopping malls it is important to strategically place the security
cameras so they will enhance security and allow continuous live
monitoring throughout the shopping complex.
