What is CCTV Surveillance System?

Closed Circuit Television or CCTV Surveillance systems are TV systems that are installed and monitored for security and surveillance purposes, in which signals are publicly distributed. Normally, you will see this in place in some establishments and offices. Despite this is an old technology that has been around for years, there have been significant advancements in CCTV displays over time.

Unlike old Closed Circuit TV systems that had low resolution and small black & white monitors without any interactive capabilities, the modern-day CCTVs are colored, have high-resolution displays, and loaded with outstanding features that help ensure top-notch security of the premises. Some CCTV systems feature the zoom in facility. This means you can zoom in on the image or video, track any mysterious activity on the screen and take action immediately, which otherwise may be difficult to observe on old and black & white display screens.

CCTV Security Camera Types

CCTV Surveillance System comes in different styles. However, the most common and popular ones are dome, infrared, c-mount, and bullet.

    • Bullet CCTV Security System

Bullet CCTV cameras are quite popular across industries. They come in both colored and black & white. In addition to that, they also feature all the necessary mounting hardware that is needed to install them in your premises. They are generally fixed with 6mm lens at about 30 feet and offer 56° view. That 6mm lens is excellent to view facial features.

    • Infrared CCTV Security System

For security during at night, infrared CCTV security systems are a better option as compared to bullet CCTVs. This is because infrared CCTVs allow images and videos to be seen in areas with little or practically no lighting. They can be installed either inside or outside of business premises. They have a built-in infrared LED lighting that is installed on the outer edge of the camera’s lens. With that feature, it allows users to see everything clearly in the dark. And this is exactly why the infrared systems are popularly considered as Night Vision CCTV systems.

    • C- Mount CCCTVs

One major advantage of the C-mount camera is that you can change lenses as needed. It gives you the ability to zoom in and out. ‘Varifocal’ lens is the best lens to use for C-mount CCTV as it enables users to focus from 5–50mm.

    • Dome CCTVs

Based on the name itself, this is a dome-shaped surveillance camera mostly used in stores and offices. These cameras are normally used inside the building. They feature high-quality CCD sensor as well as 420 lines excellent resolution. Additionally, it also comes with an adjustable lens.
