@jimbouk66_617478786228239 Hello Jim.......... This is one of the common question posed to surveillance professionals. One would argue that the higher the camera is mounted, the less likely it is to be vandalized, obstructed or stolen. But the higher it is mounted, the more likely the image quality suffers as the angle of incident steepens. Recommendations vary, many say never mount cameras less than 12 and 14' off the ground while others say the camera needs to be as close to the human (object) height as possible to get the full facial details. Recall also that people tend to walk with their head tilt downwards (naturally) by say 15 to 20 degrees. At close ranges, camera mounting height is crucial. Even mounted at 7-8', cameras begin to provide decreased facial detail of close subjects looking straight, due to the increased angle of incidence. Above this, the issue is worsened, with the camera capturing the tops of heads.At medium ranges, mounting height effects are quickly lessened. At 24' from the camera, there will be only modest difference in image quality due to angle of incidence, with no practical negative impact.At long ranges, increased mounting height has little effect, as the difference in camera angle is minimal.Rule of thumb and taking the max angle of incidence of 15 degrees, hereunder are the recommended heights.
I recommend you to install the camera with the height of 17ft. pizza tower
