Is the location of my window suitable for Telraam?
When signing up as a candidate for a Telraam network, we ask you to upload a photo on the participation form. The purpose of this is to check whether your location is suitable for Telraam. Is the roadway and/or footpath visible? Is there a balustrade that disturbs, a flysheet, a shutter or a tree that obstructs the view?
Or maybe you want to purchase a Telraam yourself, but first want to make sure your window meets all the Telraam requirements. If so, be sure to read on.
Uploading a picture on the registration form (if part of a network)
We ask you to take a picture of the street from the window (1st or 2nd floor), just as you would place a Telraam against the window. This means perpendicular to the street and not slanted. If you want to place the Telraam on the second floor, we ask you to take a photograph from the second floor. Sloped windows or skylights do not qualify to hang a Telraam.
1️⃣ Floor: The window is not on the ground floor (0) and preferably on the first floor (+1). The minimum height is 3 meters. Preferably higher.
2️⃣ Maximum distance from window to street is about 15 meters.
3️⃣ Minimum distance: Your Telraam is not too close to the road. "Too close" means that vehicles the size of a van (and larger) cannot fit into the camera's field of view. This can be the case, for example, on one-way streets where there is no footpath on either side, for example, a street narrower than 5 meters.
4️⃣ Clear view: no trees, hedge, flags, fly window, etc. Moving objects will interfere with the recognition of moving vehicles
5️⃣ No intersections/traffic lights: Avoid locations where traffic is completely stationary for more than 30 seconds, especially near traffic lights or busy intersections.
6️⃣ Perpendicular: window should give out perpendicular to the street, not slanted
7️⃣ WiFi connection at the window
8️⃣ Power outlet near the window, as the Telraam needs power.
