Selecting the Right Type of Surveillance camera system
There are millions of homes and hundreds of thousands of businesses in California and Colorado. That adds up to millions of people who view security a little differently and have different needs. For that reason, there are more than a dozen different types of surveillance camera systems available. If you enlist our services, one of our top locksmith technicians will help you select the system that best meets your needs.
We’ll start the selection process by assessing your circumstances and security needs. Based on that assessment, our technician will sit with you and layout the CCTV alternatives that would seem to give you the best security possible at a price you can afford.
At this point, we would like to offer you a little information regarding some of the most popular and effective types of CCTV systems. With this information in hand, our discussions with you regarding possible business security surveillance camera systems or a home security camera system will make more sense.
IP Security Camera
An Internet Protocol camera, or IP camera, requires no recording devices. As security images are captured, the information is relayed through the internet to a dedicated IP address. Most IP security camera devices qualify as webcams. In most cases, the quality is very much the same as you might get during a video chat with a friend.
Thermal Security Camera
If you want to protect your home or business, you want to be alerted as soon as possible to a potential problem. A thermal security surveillance camera systems can do that. Using the latest in heat detection technology, these devices can pick up indications of body heat in a matter of seconds. They can then provide imaging related to the source of the heat. They can also give early detection of fire. It’s near impossible to get a false reading with a thermal heat system.
PTZ Security Camera
PTZ security cameras provide the advantage of flexibility. From a single camera position, a PTZ camera uses pan, tilt, and zoom features that provide a wider area of coverage. This option offers great image quality, which assures intruders will be easily identified.
Extra features include automatic zooming capabilities and pre-set positions that can be easily integrated with other security systems. This option is suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments.
It’s not always a good idea to provide visual and physical access to your CCTV security system. First, it gives the criminal element access to damage your CCTV system. Second, it makes it difficult to catch rogue employees, criminals, or house guests in the act of committing crimes or damaging property.
A covert camera system is maintained outside of the view of others. These discreet cameras are small and easily hidden in strategic places. Best of all, these small cameras are available in a variety of casings that can easily be matched with the surveillance environment.
Wireless Security Camera
If you are looking for a temporary or remote security solution, a wireless security camera might be suitable for your needs. With these options, you can avoid the hassle and cost of having to run a power source to a remote location. It’s all powered by rechargeable batteries.
This type of camera has long-range surveillance capabilities, the perfect point-to-point solution for contraction sites or cabins in the woods. These cameras come with remote control capabilities that can extend as far as four miles away from the recording source.
Solar Powered Security Camera
If you need a CCTV security camera solution in an area where finding a power source presents real challenges, you might find a solar powered security camera to your liking. These cameras are very durable, making them able to withstand harsh elements.
These are wireless CCTV units that can transmit signals to monitors as far as 20 miles away. With this option, you would have the perfect solution for facilities that are located in remote areas or off the grid. Also, landowners will find this to be a great solution that offers great coverage in the outlying borders of large pieces of land. As long as there is ample access to sunlight, these cameras can function at optimal levels, offering high-quality imaging.
As the name would indicate, a bullet camera surveillance device is very small and shaped to look like a rifle bullet. These types of security cameras are suitable for mounting on walls and ceilings. For outdoor use, these CCTV cameras come with infrared technology for viewing in low to no light environments. They also come in casings that can stand up to even the harshest weather conditions.
Note: Given the size of these cameras, the visual quality is simply amazing.
Dome Security Camera
If you are looking for a night vision and vandal-proof CCTV camera solution, you might want to consider a dome security camera. These high-resolution and durable devices are perfect for high-traffic areas where you want to capture a wide range of activities. You can mount these cameras both indoors and outdoors. As an outdoor solution, the infrared technology will help you see things in the dark that other camera solutions might not be able to pick up.
Hidden Security Cameras
When you want to secretly monitor the activities of people in your home or work facility, you don’t always want them to know from where they are being monitored. That calls for a security solution that’s hidden out of public view.
Often referred to as “spy” cameras, hidden security cameras come in a variety of disguises that can blend into a wide range of environments. In some cases, these types of cameras can be attached to existing fixtures like ceiling lights/fans, motion detectors, and fire detectors. They are also available in a wide range of shapes and sizes.
Box Camera System
For the ultimate in flexibility, a box camera system might be the right way to go. These cameras come with options that cover different weather conditions, light conditions, various power sources, different casings, viewing angles, and lenses. Since box cameras are very durable, they often provide a better solution than what you might get from a bullet or dome solution.
