Security cameras come in many different types and varieties and it can be difficult for the home or business owner to chose which type is best for their application. A member of our Sales staff will visit your home or facility at no charge to assess the configuration of the structure and recommend the best coverage for your budget. We have listed the basic types with applications and advantages below. If you do not see your situation Contact Us for a site survey.
Bullet: A bullet CCTV camera is a wall-mount or ceiling-mounted unit that is typically designed for indoor use, but can also be fill some outdoor applications. The camera derives its name from its sleek, thin cylindrical shape.
Day/Night: Day/night cameras compensate for varying light conditions to allow the camera to capture images. These are primarily used in outdoor applications where the security camera is positioned for an outdoor parking lot, for example.
Network/IP: These cameras, both hardwired and wireless, transmit images over the Internet, often compressing the bandwidth so as not to overwhelm the web. IP cameras are easier to install than analog cameras because they do not require a separate cable run or power boost to send images over a longer distance.
Outdoor: The key to outdoor cameras is the housing itself, which must be impenetrable to moisture, insects, dust and other elements. Outdoor camera housings make non-weatherproof security cameras weatherproof and capable of being used safely outdoors.
Infrared/Night Vision: These night-vision cameras have the ability to see images in pitch black conditions using IR LEDs. In some cases they are for mobile applications.
Dome: A dome cameras get their name from the dome-shaped housing in which they sit. These housings are designed to make the cameras unobtrusive… not covert or hidden. Typical applications are retail, where the camera is designed to be unobtrusive, but visible.
PTZ: "Pan" - "Tilt" - "Zoom" cameras give the surveillance operator the ability to move the camera left or right (pan); up and down (tilt); and zoom the lens closer or farther. These are relegated to surveillance situations where there is an actual live guard or surveillance specialist monitoring the images.
