  • Clean Camera Lenses: Look for any undesirable elements on your lenses, because dust can damage a good image quality, even HD. Be careful to be very gentle and use a microfiber cloth.

  • Landscape: Make sure your outdoor cameras have a 360° clear view keeping a neat and trimmed landscape to prevent any obstruction. Reviewing a video, to realize that a tree branch was blocking your camera is a shame.
