Types of Cameras for Home or Business Surveillance

There are many camera types to consider for indoors and out for your home or business surveillance system. Below is an example of each.

Dome or Mini-Dome Cameras
Dome cameras are usually used when discreet applications are required. The actual lens is obscured from an onlooker’s view and is more tamper resistant than other cameras.

Bullet Cameras
Bullet cameras are NOT named “Bullet” because they are bullet proof. They are named “Bullet” because of their size. They are small and can be adjusted easily. Some come with infrared lighting, and they can be used indoors and out.

Box Cameras
Box cameras are comprised of the camera body, lens and power supply. Each can be custom designed to meet your needs. They can either be an IP camera or analog.

Pan/Tilt/Zoom Cameras (PTZ)
Pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras are very versatile. They can move left and right, tilt up and down, rotate 360 degrees, and zoom in or out to get the perfect view of the scene.PTZs are operated by the end user with a joystick or on the computer with navigation keys.
