With increasing incidences of violence, theft, and vandalism, there’s no arguing the fact that Surveillance Systems and CCTV cameras are an integral part of your Security Plan. This is irrespective of whether you’re looking to secure a residential or commercial space.

With that said, locating the best CCTV camera that matches your specific requirements is no easy feat. Worry not, here you can find a list of the top three security cameras in the market and their advantages.

  • Dome Camera

This is one of the most used CCTV camera type, especially for indoors. It gets its name from the dome-shaped housing it comes in. The dome shape makes it difficult for intruders to accurately identify the current direction, where the camera is pointing at. This helps to deter criminals by creating a sense of uncertainty.

It’s ideal for applications where the camera needs to be unobtrusive without being hidden or covert like retail outlets, business complexes, malls and so on.

Other Benefits include:

  • Easy to install
  • Vandal-proof
  • Infrared capability
  • Bullet Cameras

It’s long and cylindrical, with a tapered end, and is the first choice for outdoor residential or commercial CCTV cameras. It points at a particular area and captures images from that direction. One of the major benefits of this camera is that it can capture long-distance images/videos with ease.

Bullet cameras mostly come with protective casings that safeguard it from the elements of nature like dust, dirt, rain, and wind. They can be easily mounted at any height with the help of a bracket and comes with either varifocal or fixed lens, depending on specific requirements. They can be wall-mounted or ceiling-mounted.

Other Benefits include:

  • Highly adaptable – works well indoors and outdoors
  • Compact size makes for easy installation
  • Electronic shutter that works well for different surveillance environments
  • PTZ Cameras

Unlike the surveillance cameras mentioned above, which have a fixed orientation, the orientation of Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) Cameras can be altered. It can be moved up/down (tilting), left or right (panning) and zoomed closer or farther (zoom). These cameras are mostly used in situations, where a live team is operating or monitoring the surveillance system from a remote location.

Other Benefits include:

  • Powerful optical zoom and autofocus
  • Long IR range of up to 100m
  • Smart Tracking

Beyond this list, there are several other commercial and residential CCTV cameras like varifocal, fisheye, cube and many more.

Finding the right camera depends a lot on your specific requirements like the space to be monitored, risk profile, the resolution required, wired/wireless and so on.

Once you have identified the right model, you can install it with the help of professional security experts and protect your loved ones and prized possessions.
