It's equally important to choose the appropriate security cameras for your company as it is the best security system.
When comparing the different types of frys security cameras available on the market, companies can make educated choices that meet their requirements and budget. This article will examine the strengths and shortcomings of three of the most well-known cameras as well as three special cameras like PTZ (pantilt-zoom) and panorama, multi-imager, or multi-sensor security camera.
Three of the most Commonly Used Security Cameras
Security cameras packed in boxes
A rectangular box with the lens of a security camera is what are box cameras. Box cameras are perfect for outdoor use since they come with a waterproof enclosure. They can be beneficial in instances in which image quality is essential. Due to their distinctive appearance, box cameras are not often used inside.
Box security cameras are more costly than bullet or dome cameras. But, the higher image quality of box cameras is due to their larger capacity and the ability to hold more electronics. Additionally to that, the lens of box cameras can be replaced. When a box camera is coupled with the lens of a professional photographer can capture detail that other cameras can't.
Dome Surveillance Cameras
Dome security cameras appear more attractive than conventional box cameras. Although dome cameras are designed to be used indoors, they are also available in vandal and waterproof outdoor housings.
Dome cameras are able to accept fixed, variable, or motorised varifocal lenses. Fixed lenses are the most well-known and least expensive, while varifocal lenses are more flexible and allow zooming in or out. Varifocal lenses that are motorized give more clarity over longer distances. The remote control of the varifocal lens can be achieved through the VMS.
Fixed dome cameras are available in a variety of sizes, including inconspicuous, micro small, small, and medium. However, IR illuminators can reflect onto dome glass when a dome camera's utilized outdoors. This can cause visual noise. A bullet camera performs better in this noise.
Bullet Surveillance Cameras
Bullet cameras, as the name implies, are positioned on the exterior like guns' barrels, making them more noticeable. Bullet security cameras are easy to set up and come with a mounting handles for wall mounts. To alter the angle of view, the camera can spin when it is connected.
Bullet cameras are suitable for use outdoors, however because they're conspicuous, they are also easy to move. However, bullet cameras can, be mounted on many locations and used from quite a ways away. This means that putting a bullet camera higher increases the security.
There are three types of specialized security cameras.
Cameras that have many sensors, or timers
Multiple lenses are integrated into one camera body in multi-imager or multi-sensor cameras, allowing for greater coverage. Because of the multiple lenses that are integrated into the VMS displays three pictures. Multi-imager cameras and multi-sensor cameras are the best option for capturing larger areas.
PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras
Mechanical controls on the PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) camera allow users to pan, tilt, and zoom the camera from the distance. In turn, by using the camera's software, a remote operator can alter the direction. PTZ cameras can be programmed to run patterns or automatically change direction to a particular level.
A PTZ (pan tilt zoom) camera is equipped with mechanical controls that allow users to pan, tilt and zoom from a distance. In turn, by using the camera software, remote operators can change the direction. PTZ cameras can also be programmed to turn automatically around a certain place or run in patterns. PTZ cameras are more costly because of the complexity of their functions.
Cameras that have a panoramic view
Panoramic cameras are able to be used by a single camera to capture a wide area and a panoramic image. This means that installation and system costs are less expensive. They're ideal for surveillance purposes that demand a single view of a large region for example, like securing the warehouse. Panoramic security cameras are simple to install, making them ideal for usage in reception rooms and hallways. However the fisheye lens could cause distortions to the image, and also reduce the quality of the image.
