Placing the camera: I advise you not to place a security camera at the highest reached point. Although by doing that you get a wider and larger view but enough details of videos and features of footages are limited. You should also provide enough illuminations for your camera, but mind that not to place your camera to face the sun directly- all you get is a blurred image except for a very few ones from Hikvision! Make sure your security camera is not placed towards interceptions or obstructions of any sort. You should also make sure you use a high DVR camera- a camera with a wide dynamic range that could get the desired image from any angle and not only when being faced directly.
