Video surveillance is growing rapidly, new problems and issues are also coming into view which needs serious and urgent attention. Video surveillance system requires a beneficial energy efficient camera solution. In this paper, a single overhead camera solution is introduced which overcomes the problems existing in various frontal and overhead based surveillance systems. This will increases the efficiency and accuracy of surveillance system i.e. frontal and overhead. In this paper, two energy efficient overhead camera models are presented. The first model consists of a single overhead camera with a wide angle lens which covers a wide field of view addresses problems present in the traditional surveillance system. The second model, presents a single smart centralized overhead camera which controls various frontal based cameras. Several factors associated with camera models such as field of view, focal length and distortion are also discussed. Impact of the surveillance cameras are finally discussed which shows that a single energy efficient overhead camera surveillance system can solves many problems present in traditional surveillance system like power consumption, storage, time, human resource and installation cost and small coverage area.
