For years now commercial property owners have been installing commercial CCTV cameras to add an extra level of protection. Before installing commercial CCTV cameras most property owners want to know about the various different types of CCTV cameras that there are. Today we are going to talk about some of the different types of closed circuit television cameras made by companies like Hikvision.
Dome CCTV Cameras
Dome cameras are a common type of CCTV camera and as the name implies, they are shaped like a dome. You will find that dome CCTV cameras are relatively discrete and can be used in a variety of placements. With most dome cameras having a tinted cover, it is hard for criminals and others to know exactly where the camera is pointing. The tint does not prevent the CCTV camera from being able to see in any way.
Bullet CCTV Cameras
A bullet CCTV camera is a camera that has a long tube-like shape. Some of these cameras may appear boxier than like a tube but they offer the same features and benefits. One of the reasons you may choose a bullet CCTV camera is the fact that they can be purchased with long distance lens. Bulky casings on bullet cameras make them ideal for outdoor placement.
PTZ CCTV Cameras
PTZ stands for pan, tilt, zoom, or sometimes point, tilt, zoom. A PTZ CCTV camera is a camera that is on a motor. It is capable orienting itself in a direction based on the control of the digital video recorder or another device. While more expensive than most other options, a PTZ CCTV camera offers a good quality lens and the ability to see a wide area.
C-Mount CCTV Cameras
C-Mount CCTV cameras are a type of large camera that is used for outdoor use. It can be posted on a pole or at the top of a fence post. They are often used to monitor outdoor areas or roads that lead up to your commercial property. What makes these cameras standout is the fact that the lenses can be swapped out to increase viewing distance.
360 CCTV Cameras
When you want to be able to view a large area at one time, a 360 CCTV camera is your best option. These cameras see a 360-degree view and are great for seeing a whole room or a whole parking lot. They may need a high vantage point in order to get a complete view. When used in parking lots, a light pole or similar option is used for mounting these cameras.
