Types Of CCTV Cameras


There are so many options to consider when it comes to CCTV systems and it can be overwhelming to select the right system for your property. Different types of CCTV cameras are ideal for different types of properties. In this blog post, we will be outlining the main six types of CCTV systems that Lookout Fire & Security Solutions install for all domestic, commercial and industrial customers.

Dome CCTV Cameras

This type of CCTV camera is designed to withstand all types of elements, inside and outside. The way that the camera is designed is clever as criminals or intruders often can’t figure out which way the camera is pointing which serves as a great deterrent for stopping intrusions from happening in the first place. Dome CCTV cameras are one of the easier types of systems to install for local engineers and they can be fitted both indoor and outdoor depending on your requirements.

Another huge benefit with Dome CCTV Cameras is the fact that they cover more or less every angle possible. Thanks to their 360-degree rotation capabilities, every angle is covered without question. This type of CCTV system is particularly ideal and regularly installed for a range of hospitality businesses, restaurants, and shops.

PTZ Pan Tilt & Zoom Cameras

PTZ Pan Tilt & Zoom Cameras are another popular type of CCTV system that should be seriously considered. Within a touch of a button, this type of camera can angle left and right to cover exactly what you need it to. This type of CCTV camera is also highly beneficial for focusing on key details and specifications. For example, if you have been intruded previously in a specific area, you can put the focus on this area and monitor closely for peace of mind.

Just like the Dome CCTV camera, the PTZ Pan Tilt & Zoom camera provides 360 degree field vision and complete flexibility. If you’re looking for regular remote viewing from your devices, such as IPads, Phones and Computers, this is one of the best CCTV cameras. Furthermore, this type of system and camera is commonly installed within retail environments.

Infrared/Night Vision CCTV Cameras

If you’re seeking CCTV cameras that produce just as clear and quality images at night as in the day, look no further than infrared/Night Vision CCTV cameras. These cameras are specifically designed to operate in pitch black conditions which is ideal as more intrusions and break-ins happen during the evening across the UK. ColourVu technology is integrated into these systems which means that the cameras have the capability to capture high-quality footage even in fog.

This type of CCTV system and camera is ideal for all types of domestic properties but can also be installed at commercial-type properties where theft may be likely. For example, night-vision and infrared cameras would be highly beneficial at banks to clearly identify criminals and prevent potential break-ins.
