Many people don`t know that there are many types of CCTV cameras and most of us make mistakes during the purchasing and installation due to lack of information. Well , if you follow this to the end, you will never make this mistake again as we discuss types of CCTV cameras we have in the market in Kenya today.
Battery Powered Cameras
The battery powered innovative design just sets us free from the wring labor! There will be no wire for power, and no wire for data transmission. After putting in all the batteries, the camera is ready to work. And you don’t need to worry about its battery life. Typically, the battery could last for 4 to 6 months per charge. Or if you want to save the trouble of recharging, a solar panel comes as a handy solution for many battery CCTV camera types to get non-stop power. Think about it. You can place and move the security camera wherever you like, from the baby’s room to the living room or outside your home. So you can always have security wherever you need it most.
4G LTE CCTV Camera with No WiFi
Are you bothered with the WiFi and power limitation for remote area monitoring? Then you must take a look at the latest CCTV camera type, the 4G CCTV camera. 4G LTE security camera , also called cellular camera runs on 4G data with a built-in SIM card instead of the router network to work.
PTZ Security Cameras
PTZ security camera is one of the most popular CCTV camera types for home security.So what are PTZ security cameras? What’s the benefit of this security camera type? Simply put, PTZ security cameras, also called speed dome cameras, allow you to control the camera pan, tilt and zoom functions remotely via surveillance software. hat’s to say, a PTZ camera has a much larger field of view with typically 90° tilt and 360° pan, and can see far-away objects clearly by zooming in, like the plate number 40 feet away.
And the PTZ function makes this CCTV camera type ideal for outdoors for a full coverage of the backyard, the front door, the garden, the garage, the driveway, etc. You are also free to place it at high positions, like the 3rd floor patio, since you can always zoom in for details.
Bullet CCTV Cameras
Bullet security cameras are the most common CCTV camera type that you can normally see on the street, the supermarket, and the neighborhood.They get the name for their rifle bullet shape, and are also known as lipstick cameras.The CCTV camera bullet type usually has a strong point for certain spaces, with a viewing angle of about 80° horizontally and 40° vertically. And they are not able to pan or tilt unless you adjust it yourself.
Generally, the bullet CCTV camera type is small, which could be 2.5 to 3 inches long decided by the CCTV camera lens types. So they are easier to hide and are less noticeable if you place it properly.
Dome IP Cameras
Dome IP camera, as the name suggests, is a type of CCTV camera with a dome cover.The biggest advantage of this CCTV camera type is that dome cameras are rather deceptive on where they are looking at. You can never tell by looking at it in distance.However, the dome security camera type does have a fixed viewing angle like 100° just as the bullet cameras, instead of offering you a panoramic and distorted view.
Wireless Security Cameras
This CCTV camera type is somewhat misleading to be called “wireless”.Actually, the wireless CCTV camera type only sends data wirelessly and it still needs a cable for power supply, which set it apart from the truly wire-free CCTV camera types.However, this type of security camera is still easy to hook up with only one power cable to deal with compared with the traditional analog cameras.
