CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) also known as video/visual surveillance is a technology designed to monitor and record an activities in an area for security purposes and protection of property.
Today, a wide variety of security cameras are available catering to all kinds of requirements. Below are the 9 types of CCTV security cameras which are widely used:
CCTV Dome Camera :
Dome CCTV Cameras are quite common for indoor security and surveillance applications. These cameras are covered by dome-shaped housing which makes it nearly impossible for anyone to notice these cameras and you cannot even tell exactly where these cameras are aiming/facing until and unless someone takes a closer look.
Thus, these type of cameras are ideal of homes, big commercial buildings, retail shops, jeweler showrooms, etc., to deter criminals and ensure the safety and security of people present at that facility.
Dome cameras are available in black, white and other colors as well and can be mounted on the ceiling or on a wall. The basic unit has good video resolution (400 lines for b/w, 380 for color).
Speed Dome CCTV Cameras :
The cameras have automated pan/tilt/zoom functionality where the camera moves on a timed basis enabling the surveillance operator the ability to move the camera as required. These cameras can pan/tilt/zoom and spin quickly within the housing and are mainly used to cover a wide area using only one camera, or to avoid poor light conditions at certain times of day.
CCTV Infrared Camera :
Infra Red CCTV cameras are the night vision cameras as they can see at night. Due to no light or low light during night it is not possible for the cameras to get a good picture or video of activities happened during the night. Thus, the cameras with Infra red LEDs can see images in pitch black conditions and since infra red cameras are bullet style, they can easily be used both indoor and outdoor.
The technology behind this is that Infra red security cameras have 0.0 camera lux and infrared LED lighting installed around the outer edge of the lens allowing the camera to see in poor to zero lighting.
The Infra Red Security cameras are mainly used for jeweler shops, warehouses, godowns, factories and other businesses that have the lights out at night to avoid break-ins.
Infra red cameras provides a perfect clear colored image when the light is good; with low light it captures a picture that looks just like daytime and at night when there is no light it switches to infrared mode capturing a clear black and white image.
CCTV Bullet Camera :
Bullet CCTV Cameras are cylindrical shaped - long and tapered and have similar resemblance to that of a rifle bullet. These Cameras are mainly used for long distance viewing and can be used both indoor and outdoor.
The Bullet Cameras are fixed and can be mounted on a wall or ceiling as required. These cameras are not designed to have pan/tilt/zoom automated functionality but take images from a fixed location, focusing at a particular area.
These security cameras come in black and white or other colors as well with required mounting hardware. Resolution levels for black and white security cameras are about 400 lines, any higher and the benefits are minimal. For color cameras, the higher the resolution the better.
These cameras have fixed 3.6mm lens and the widest angle you can have without distortion of picture is 80 degree angle of view.
Some models of Bullet CCTV cameras come with weather resistant casings protecting the camera from dust, dirt, rain, hail and other harmful elements.
CCTV C-Mount Cameras :
C-mount CCTV cameras come with detachable lenses to fit different requirements. All the standard camera lenses cover a distance between 35 and 40ft only but if you want to see further then C-mount cameras are required with special lenses that can cover distances greater than 40ft.
C-Mount lenses are available from 4mm to 50mm. A 4mm lens will provide facial detail and a 70 degree angle of view focused up to about 35 ft. This is mainly required in a small office, or at home to focus on your driveway. So, higher the millimeter lens, further the distance and narrowed field of view.
Day/Night CCTV Camera :
These are the cameras with a great advantage of operating in both normal and low light environments. These are different from infrared cameras as they do not require Infrared illuminators and can capture good quality images in different light conditions and in the dark as well. Day/Night CCTV Cameras are the best option for outdoor surveillance as they can easily function in glare, direct sunlight, reflections and strong back light 24x7.
Network/IP CCTV Camera :
IP CCTV cameras are the new range of cameras, both hardwired and wireless, transmitting high quality compressed images over the internet. These are digital cameras, easier to install as they do not require a separate cable run or power boost to send images over a longer distance. They actually turn the images into data and then using Ethernet, USB, Wi-Fi, etc., it transfer the images on your personal system.
Wireless CCTV Cameras :
Wireless CCTV cameras are same as IP cameras but not all wireless cameras are IP-based. Some wireless CCTV cameras can use alternative modes of wireless transmission and are extreme flexible when it comes to installation.
High-Definition HD CCTV Camera :
Ultra high-definition cameras are mainly used at places like Casinos, Bar, Banks. This enables the operator to clearly zoom into the faces of people visiting the building so that any theft, fraud or crime can be avoided.
One of the best thing about owning a CCTV surveillance system is that it allows you to keep an eye on every movement and activity that is happening at your home or office without being actually present there giving you a peaceful mind :
Ensures 24x7 security at home, offices, big commercial buildings and other facilities keeping people and your belongings safe.

We do provide same day service but it is always recommended to book the Surveillance camera installation atleast 1-2 days before.

DVR or Digital Video Recorder :
A DVR is the most important part of CCTV system. It captures all the camera inputs and arranges them on a screen for live viewing. It also stores or records the footage on a hard drive so that you can watch it on a later date as per your convenience. The DVR records each and every moment that all the cameras installed capture irrespective of the fact that you are viewing 1 camera at a time or several cameras altogether on screen.
Another thing about DVR is that it can be connected to you internet router enabling you to watch live footage irrespective of wherever you are in the world. You can watch all the live footage, or previously recorded footage, create back-ups or change settings to the DVR with its feature of remote access over the internet.
CCTV Cameras :
CCTV cameras is the another important requirement for CCTV system. It is where all the movements/activities are captured transmitted to monitor for your viewing on screen. It is important to make sure that you are using good quality high resolution cameras for clear footage to be captured. The requirement of number and type of cameras mainly depends upon the size of the property, its indoor/outdoor locations, client's specific requirement, etc.
CCTV cameras are connected to the DVR using cables which helps in supplying 12 volt power to the camera and also transfer the video from the camera back to the DVR.
There is a broad range of cameras, lenses available these day with new and advanced technology and it is of utmost important to choose the right cameras.
For places like, Bar, Casino, Banks you require clear detailed images, thus opting for high resolution cameras is the best choice.
In case of areas like garage and basements, where light is negligible, more sensitive cameras should be used like infrared cameras or Day/Night CCTV cameras for clear picture.
If the cameras are installed at a place where there is strong lighting like during parties, functions, BLC (Back Light Compensation) can counter the same and give you a clear and quality footage.
If the camera is required for places with concentrated light source like the car's head lamps, make sure you use a peak white inverter or an eclipser to get the detailed image and background of the area, which otherwise would be shadowed.
This will depend on the size and layout of the area you wish to survey. On average, we recommend one camera per 1000 Sq. Ft.
The DVR system has software through which motion detection works and video is recorded as and when pixels in the image change. To put it in simple words, DVR compares the current image frames with the previous one and if it notices a difference, the motion is assumed to have taken place. It is always better to aim your cameras to all the main entry and closing points and busier areas for DVR to notice the movement.
