The decision as to which type of camera to use depends on its location environment and the type of subject being monitored:

  • Mono Best suited to poor light conditions, enabling increased image definition.
  • Colour Best suited to good light conditions (daytime or indoor) where image clarity is important.
  • Lenses There are a wide variety of lenses to choose from with wide angle and zoom capability for distant objects or wide views.
  • Cameras There are Dome, Covert, Fixed, - Pan, Tilt & Zoom (PTZ), all have their particular uses for specific security situations.
