IR (Infrared) CCTV Systems

With a lot of crime happening under the cover of darkness, IR (infrared)/ Night-Vision CCTV is essential. IR cameras help you see in the dark when you can't. They have the ability to see in low, and no light (0 Lux). Infrared cameras have IR LEDs positioned around the outer edges of the camera lens which gives the camera its "Night Vision".

Infrared Cameras can capture acceptable video in total darkness and even better quality video in low light. Even a small amount of ambient light helps the overall night vision capability of IR cameras a lot. This can be in the form of nearby street lighting or even motion sensor lights. This should however be discussed during a site survey prior to installation.

IP or Analogue?

IP or Digital (also referred to as Analogue CCTV) - What's the difference, and what's best for me? It's a question that we get asked a lot. Unfortunately we wouldn't be able to give you a definitive answer without viewing your premises first - however here are a few things you should know:

  • IP works over your internet lines, allowing it to become a more flexible system.
  • Analogue is generally cheaper up-front costs, although for some installations, it may be more cost effective to run IP CCTV cameras.
  • IP Cameras tend to have a lot more features.
  • IP Cameras tend to have a higher resolution.
  • Remote access: You can remotely watch your CCTV from a smartphone, PC, or tablet with an IP system.

Dome, Bullet or PTZ?

004-cardboard-60

Theres a wide range of CCTV camera styles, the main three categories however are: Dome, Bullet and PTZ. 

Dome cameras are generally mounted on a ceiling or side wall mounted for areas such as alleyways. These can be found in vandal-proof variations and the lenses are generally protected by the dome. 

Bullet CCTV cameras are your traditional style camera. They're fixed cameras and can be pole-mounted, wall-mounted and can also be ceiling-mounted. They're a versatile camera but can sometimes be prone to vandalism unless positioned up high.

PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras come in different variations however their main function is that the lens and the cameras direction can be moved, focused and monitored from another device such as a computer, monitoring station or mobile device.  

Each camera has their use in different environments and they all come with their own positives and negatives. If you would like to know more, please contact us directly on 0808 202 3200 to arrange a site visit.
