CCTV is not only the most commonly used security camera system but also the go to answer for an all-encompassing surveillance solution.

CCTV systems use many different camera types depending on the security needs. Common camera classifications among which customers can choose include:
Digital Security Cameras
Digital CCTV cameras record to digital video recorders (DVR), a format that offers more
flexible storage options.
Fixed or Point Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) Security Cameras
Fixed CCTV cameras remain in one position. PTZ cameras can be moved left to right, up and down and zoomed in and out via a computer, DVR or PTZ joystick. These cameras often are used at shopping centres and other public places where it is imperative to access clear identification of moving people and objects.
Indoor or Outdoor Security Cameras
Outdoor CCTV cameras are built tough to withstand the elements, while indoor cameras are more delicate.
Infrared Security Cameras
Most CCTV cameras today are digital colour with infrared LEDs, which films in colour by day and in black and white IR by night. Infrared cameras provide the best picture in low-light viewing situations.
Vandal Resistant Security Cameras
Depending on the location of the camera, it may be necessary to make it resistant to vandals with a tough exterior. Consider this option for cameras in a vulnerable location.
Dome, Bullet, Box, Corner and Pinhole Security Cameras
CCTV Camera shapes, sizes and materials vary according to which of the above classifications are selected. For example, dome cameras are used in well-lit locations with low ceilings, whereas bullet cameras are used in low light conditions such as nightlife operations. Corner cameras are used in tight spaces such as elevators. Some larger cameras like standard box cameras may serve as a visual deterrent, while others, like pinhole cameras, are small in order to avoid detection.
Westlock Security offers a wide range of security cameras as well as other security alarm systems. Choosing the right device for your situation can be complicated, and requires talking to people who know cameras.
