|Fixed speed enforcement camera locations of any type (Gatso, Peek, Truvelo, Monitron or SPECS).
Notes:
# Until such time as Waze supports SPECS (Average Speed) Cameras natively, these type cameras should be recorded mapped as a standard speed camera at each location (entry point, mid point(s) and exit point)[[Average Speed Zones]].
# Mobile speed cameras should not be reported in Waze, instead use the Report -> Police feature in the client.

Note: Some red light cameras such as Monitrons Monitron and RedSpeed are capable of recording speed infringements limit violations as well as driving through a red light. Therefore you should set , however, the speed limit for all red light cameras as should be set to zero so that you would for speed camerasare always warned of their presence.

=='''Reporting a Camera in the Client'''==
To report a camera, press the report button at the bottom right hand side of the client screen. You will then be presented with the report Menu, from which you select "Camera".

# The camera will only appear in the client after it has been approved in Waze Map Editor.
# Where a location has a camera in each direction, or it is reversible, two reports will be required.
 # [[Average Speed Zones]] should be mapped by setting the flags on the affected segments.
=='''Approving a Camera in Waze Map Editor'''==
After a camera has been reported by a Wazer from the client, it will not appear on the live map until it has been approved in the Waze Map Editor. Before approval cameras appear in brown and once approved they change to grey.

''(Note: The speed camera icons in the client do not have the old "30" logo as depicted still v3.7.7 are different to those in Waze Map Editor)''
Before approving a camera, the editor should exercise due diligence and investigate if there really is a camera at this location, being careful to rule out any duplicate(s) which has been reported and approved already. Many areas of the Waze map are flooded with cameras that are simply not out on the road. Use your judgement, if there is any doubt do not approve it but delete it.
 
===Camera Placement===
Note: A reversible camera will require two camera reports, one facing in each direction.
 
===Setting Camera Speed and Approving the Camera===
The camera will now appear in the live map and on the client once the changes have been processed. Be aware that this may take 2 weeks or more!

Notes:
# In managed traffic zones with variable speed limits the speed should be set to the maximum permitted speed. (e.g 70mph for the M42).
# Some red light cameras such as Monitrons Monitron and RedSpeed are capable of recording speed infringements limit violations as well as driving through a red light. Therefore you should set , however, the speed limit for all red light cameras as should be set to zero so that you would for speed camerasare always warned of their presence.# <span style="color: red">There is currently a bug in both the iOS and Android clients that, which affects when it triggers audio alerts.</span>
=='''Removing an Approved Camera'''==
An approved camera (grey) camera , will only appear on the live map the next subsequent live-map update after it is approvedto its approval. If the camera is to be removed , there are two removal mechanisms available to remove it.:
===Waze Map Editor===
===Waze Client===
When approaching a camera the user receives a caption warning them of the camera, this caption has a "Not there" button. Each time this happens the users editing rank is added to a running total. When the total is equal to or greater than the rank of the user who approved the camera then it becomes un-approved. At this stage any-one anyone can delete it or it can be re-approved.
Note: Each time the "Not there" button is used the last edit date for the camera is updated in WME, however the last editor name is not changed.

===Gatso "Smart Pole" Speed Cameras===
The [http://www.crown-international.co.uk/smart-pole/gatso-serco-smart-pole/ Gatso Smart Pole] is a new camera variant being deployed around the UK which uses the same technology as the standard digital Gatso cameras introduced in 2007 with a vandal resistant pole. As with the standard unit it is rear facing, and when triggered will flash.
 
Where aerial photography is of good enough quality, it can be used to aid correct placement of the camera in Waze Map Editor.
 
Take care not to confuse these cameras with [[#Level_Crossing_Cameras|Level Crossing Cameras]] which are similar in appearance.

===SPECS Average Speed Cameras===
Where aerial photography is of good enough quality, it can be used to aid correct placement of the camera in Waze Map Editor.
There are a number of camera types in use as shown in the images, however, the Type B SPECS cameras are now in use on overhead gantries on the approaches to the QE2 Bridge (Dartford Crossing)and M60 J26 Clockwise.  {{Mbox|type=notice|text=These should be mapped using the new [[Average Speed Zones]] feature.}}
