Surveillance is a crucial part of security in both commercial and residential buildings. Robbers and vandals are less likely to attempt any criminal activity on-premises with CCTV cameras as they can capture their movements and lead to their capture. As a business owner, it is your responsibility and legal obligation to install CCTV camera systems on your premises and protect the people and assets within. However, choosing the right CCTV camera systems from a plethora of options that suit your requirements is easier said than done. Here we give you insights into some of the most popular CCTV camera systems that you can install to monitor and protect your business premises.
Bullet CCTV Cameras
These are cylindrical shaped cameras that can cover long distances. Because they are often installed outdoors, they are made from weather-resistant materials that can sustain dry and wet weather conditions. Bullet CCTV cameras are used in many industries like manufacturing, agriculture, construction, and property management. They record high-quality images and videos and also act as deterrents that warn thieves and miscreants that the premises are under surveillance.
Dome CCTV Cameras
The dome CCTV cameras get their name from the dome-shaped casing within which the camera is integrated. Although they are much more discreet than bullet CCTV cameras, they are still very good deterrents. It is also much more difficult to tamper with dome CCTV cameras, making them ideal for use, both indoors and outdoors. Used primarily in retail shops, restaurants, hotels and other hospitality venues, these cameras come with a 360-degree rotation which allows you to monitor wider angles on your premises.
One of the best features of C-Mount cameras is their adaptive field of vision. Their detachable lenses can monitor wide angles and varying distances, making them ideal for monitoring the road or entrance to your premises. C-mount cameras are weather-proof, highly visible, and ideal for use in logistics, manufacturing, food distribution and many other industries.
Pan, Tilt & Zoom Cameras
An advanced CCTV camera, the pan, tilt and zoom or PTZ camera, allows you maximum control and flexibility in monitoring your premises remotely. Ideal for use in businesses that have dedicated security personnel monitoring the building, the PTZ cameras can be controlled to pan left, right, up, down, tilt, and zoom in and out, with just a touch of a button. They help the security guard monitor the live feed and keep a constant eye on the entrances or other sensitive areas on the premises. PTZ cameras also come with tons of other features like optical zoom, 360 rotation, and high-resolution imaging, which make them ideal for large retail places and other venues with valuable assets that need constant monitoring.
Day/Night CCTV Cameras
Equipped with extra sensitive imagining chips, the Day/Night CCTV cameras can operate under all kinds of lighting conditions. Whether it is pitch black at night, or glaringly bright during daytime these cameras can record clear images regardless of how dark or bright it is. Day/night cameras are commonly used outdoors on all kinds of business premises and are perfect for 24×7 surveillance.
Apart from these popular CCTV camera types, businesses can also choose from the following options, based on their requirements:
- Network CCTV Cameras
- Infrared CCTV Cameras
