This will vary from site to site and is often dictated by requirements such as to Monitor, to Detect, to Recognise and to Identify, thereby balancing between situational awareness and definition/detail. You can have any of the four, or indeed all four at the same time from a high definition CCTV camera.

Often specific surveillance of vehicle and pedestrian entrances or vehicle number plates is required. An overview of a car park or playground, corridors, stairwells, specific entrances or cloakrooms and canteen areas are common requests. Reception areas and milling points where there is potential for anti-social behaviour is sensible. Out of bounds areas, vulnerable stores and bike racks come high up the list, as do production areas and high value goods such as computer rooms and plant.
