Camera Types

Today, there are a variety of camera types available to CCTV Systems. Most common in homes today are the cost efficient Bullet Cameras and Wedge Cameras. Consequently, they include high definition imaging with IR (Infra-red) Illumination for night time surveillance. In commercial applications, the 3″ to 4″ IP Dome Cameras are the norm for both indoor or outdoor use. Camera performance has also improved to allow 5 Mega Pixel imaging in Day or Night mode with high definition images. Furthermore, we stock new models with 360 degree views and small form factor Pan Tilt Zoom Cameras that are discreetly built into small housings. Remarkably, the newer Power Zoom Cameras can focus on objects that are blocks away from the camera. Call us today to arrange for an in house demonstration of our CCTV Cameras Systems & DVR Units.

Introduction: CCTV Quality

With thousands of options available for IP Cameras and Digital 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 better lens construction. Various price points surround these product lines, and there are bargains to be found in many. Consequently, lesser quality cameras are often made in offshore factories where many use older chip sets, low quality power supplies, and older lens technologies. This will lead to failures and a short life span. Take the low grade Costco Camera System for example, an offshore system with a short life expectancy. Finally, it uses a proprietary cable system which is a poor choice.

Quality: CCTV Cameras

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 cameras to choose from. Secondly, their CCTV Systems have varying price points for high definition cameras. Interlogix also provides economical kits bundled for homeowners and small business who want a do it yourself style kit. Furthermore, they include mid grade solutions as well as robust commercial grade systems!

Quality Products Last

First, if you plan to invest your hard earned money in a Surveillance 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 3x 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 systems outlast the life expectancy of cheaper DVR’s. 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.

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.
