So it makes sense to speak to the security experts when it comes to the safety of your loved ones, your workers, your customers and other role players.

Some of the different types of security cameras include box, dome, PTZ, IP, bullet, infrared, day night, thermal and wide dynamic cameras. Security cameras can also be categorized as outdoor or indoor. Irrespective of whether it’s a box camera or a dome camera, there are specific features that are important when it comes to deciding which camera to use for a specific area or application.

Field of vision is one of these important features. This refers to the area a camera can cover and can affect the placement and the number of cameras required. Resolution is another important factor. The higher the resolution, the clearer the image. Wi-fi capability is important if you want an integrated security and home automation system. Since criminal activity tends to happen in the dark, night vision capability is important. Camera motion such as pan and tilt enables the device to cover a larger area. Some security cameras also have sound capability which enables them to pick sound waves and emit sound waves. A camera with sound capability can double up as a gate or door intercom system.
