Camera Types

There are a variety of camera types available to CCTV and Security Camera Systems. Most common in home security systems are the smaller Bullet or Wedge type cameras. Consequently, they include high definition imaging with IR (Infra-red) Illumination otherwise known as Night Vision. In commercial applications, the 3″ to 4″ IP Dome Cameras are common for both indoor or outdoor use. Furthermore, camera performance has improved to include 5 Mega Pixel imaging in Day or Night Vision mode. At Union Alarm, we stock additional models with 360 degree views, and small form factor PTZ Domes. These features are discreetly built into small housings. Remarkably, the newer Power Zoom Cameras can focus on objects that are hundreds or thousands of feet away from the camera. Call us today to arrange for a demonstration of our Security Camera Systems & DVR Units.

Comparison: CCTV Cameras

With hundreds of options available for Analog Cameras, IP Cameras and NVR Network Video Recorders, there’s a lot of information to digest. Not only are there many products to choose from, but there are a lot of factors that determine a good quality camera from a poor one. Lets start with the electronics. Brand Name manufacturers produce high quality chip-sets, premium processors, modern power supplies and superior lens construction. Various price points surround these product lines, but there are bargains to be found in many. Consequently, lower quality security cameras are often made in offshore factories where many use older chip sets, poor quality power supplies, and older lens technologies. This will often lead to failures and a shorter life span. Take the low grade Costco Camera System for example. An offshore system with a very short life expectancy. Finally, the best thing we can suggest to you here, is save your money for a higher quality system.

IP Camera Bundles

Here’s one of our go-to product lines with high quality CCTV Cameras and Digital Video Recorders. Firstly, the TruVision lineup from Interlogix has dozens of surveillance cameras to choose from. Secondly, their Security Systems have varying price points for high definition cameras. Interlogix also provides economical kits bundled for homeowners and small business owners who want a do it yourself style kit. Furthermore, they include mid grade solutions as well as robust commercial grade camera systems!

Investing in CCTV

First, if you plan to invest your hard earned money in a Surveillance Camera System, splurge a little and purchase a system that will last 6-8 years. Consequently,  it may cost a few hundred dollars more, but brand name products will typically outlast the  imports by a 3 to 1 lifespan. With that said, you can expect many offshore cameras to fail much quicker than a quality made product. A cost that many people fail to see until after the fact! The same can be said for Digital Video Recorders where brand name security systems outlast the life expectancy of cheaper ones. Again, this is due to cheaper products relying on inferior components in their construction. The bottom line…you get what you pay for. Don’t think because the box and packaging is pretty…that it’s a good product. Trust in professional installations and invest in name brands.


High Definition IP Cameras

Consequently, this includes everything from the smaller Series 3 Dome Cameras producing 2MPx to 4MPx image size, to economical IR Bullet Cameras and WiFi series Wedge Cameras. In fact, we carry the complete line of CCTV Cameras from TruVision & Interlogix.

Furthermore, we carry the TruVision IP IR PTZ Camera lineup for companies who require Pan, Tilt Zoom features for programmed guard tours.
