come in many different flavors, each with their own benefits. Our Terminology page can help you understand some industry terms.
Dome cameras are the most popular and versatile type used today. They are unobtrusive, easy to install, look good in any environment. They can be weather proof and vandal resistant, adjustable to look in any direction, and can be tinted which hides where they’re looking. They also have many other optional features such as infrared night-vision, low light color night vision (commonly named starlight), pan-tilt-zoom, mechanical lens, 360deg view, etc..
Bullet cameras are popular as well. They can see farther with larger lenses and have better night vision in certain applications. They can be great for parking lots and licence plate reading. They come with all the same optional features as domes but are more easily noticed and can be tampered with if in reach.
PTZ or Pan Tilt Zoom cameras are the most powerful and larger than the previous two models. They move and can zoom in on great distances. You can program them to look at an area on motion detection or alarm. They’re great for exteriors and parking lots if you have a lot of space to cover.
Starlight is a new technology that when added to any of the above types, allows the camera to see in the dark, in color almost like it’s still in daylight.
This technology compliments traditional Infrared cameras.
Below is an example of starlight vs infrared:
When we talk about camera resolution, we use the term megapixels. This measures how many millions of pixels the camera can see and record in. This term translates to both image resolution and monitor resolution which are measured in either pixels per inch (ppi) or pixel dimensions
(such as 1024 by 768 pixels); and printer resolution is measured in dots per inch (dpi) (see below).
