Camera Placements

Mike would like to update the list of approved Security Camera placements to expand on what we have and fill in gaps. Requested locations:

  • Second camera in machine shop (it's a tight area, hard for one camera to cover)
  • Classroom covering the glass door entrance
  • CNC zone covering Haas
  • Additional camera covering parts of Wood Shop and Tool Crib

See the above link for detail on suggested locations.


Amend the standing rules list of approved cameras to include additional cameras for the machine shop, classroom, CNC zone, and woodshop/tool crib
