CCTV cameras require some form of lighting in order to capture images. Most security cameras have built-in IR lights, and when it gets dark, the infrared lights turn on and produce light similar to a flood light, illuminating the security camera’s field of view with IR light. Additional external lighting can also be used to help security cameras see at night.
There are several factors that will contribute to the number of surveillance cameras that will be required in order to survey a particular area. Common factors are visual obstructions, area to be covered, lighting condition, level of detail to be captured etc. The best way to make this determination is to schedule a free site assessment.
Dome Security Cameras are named for their dome-like shape. These security cameras are commonly used in video security systems inside and outside of retail stores, casinos, homes, and restaurants. Dome cameras are either wall mounted or ceiling mounted. The camera is hidden inside a transparent dome which can be tinted to hide the camera position. Dome Security Cameras are very popular because they’re compact and easy to install.
Bullet CCTV Cameras are named because of their shape and size. As the name suggests, bullet cameras protrude outwards like a gun’s barrel. Bullet cameras usually have a longer range and are weatherproof. They are more suitable for viewing bigger areas such as parking lots and backyards.

Surveillance Systems FAQ
The DVR is a special computer that records video from analog surveillance cameras to one or more HDDs. The Didigat Video Recorder used in the security industry has a specific number of BNC connectors to attach analog cameras. Digital Video Recorders are available with 4, 8 16, 32 and 64 channels. This means that you have a specific number of cams that can be supported by one DVR. Once you connect a maximum number of analog cameras, you will need to add another Digital Video Recorder to your system. DVRs can be connected to the local area network and can be viewed remotely using a Windows PC.
A network video recorder is similar to a Video Server system, but instead of using a Windows PC, it uses a dedicated special computer with an operating system and special software that is dedicated to recording and playing the video. It is a fully digital surveillance system and records the digital videos received over the IP network on to a hard drive. NVR usually has a graphical user interface, playback capability, flexible recording, pan-tilt-zoom surveillance camera control capability and intelligent motion detection. The NVR usually uses Linux, but there are some that use Windows as well.
The majority of Digital Video Recorders and Network Video Recorders are compatible with smartphones and iPhones. In most cases, the remote viewing is achieved via a downloaded application. Please note the quality and speed of the image via a remote connection is very much dependant on the speed of the internet connection and the recorder’s compression type.
The majority of NVR’s are MAC compatible. Although, there are models in the industry that are not MAC compatible. Just make sure to mention this when speaking to our security specialists.
– NVRs connect to the computer network via Cat5 cable and so does all the IP cameras.
– DVRs utilize coax connections to each of the analog cameras
They both record video and offer the similar options but they utilize different transmission methods.
PTZ CCTV Cameras allow you to control the pan, tilt and zoom operations of the security camera lens through Digital Video Recorder or remotely. PTZ Security Cameras have the ability to move down, up, left, right, and zoom.
Costs vary on size and requirements. Systems can be tailored to fit your requirements and budget.
The maintenance is limited. The NVR, lens, monitors and surveillance cameras should be kept clean for better video.
