CCTV Cameras guide

Bullet CCTV Camera

IR CCTV Camera
  • Based on the resolution cameras are separated based on TV lines (TVL). The most popular resolutions are 420TVL, 480TVL, 540TVL and 600TVL. In our experience there is about 30-40% quality difference between 420TVL and 600TVL and wouldn't consider this as the main factor when choosing your CCTV camera.
  • IR night vision is an advanced technology, which uses infra red light which is invisible for the human eye, to produce video in black and white. The light is produced using infra red led diodes and it depending on the led diode numbers can produce enough light for up to 20-30 meters.
  • Back light compensation is one of the most important factors for a CCTV camera. This function compensates whenever there is too bright light in the background and adjusts the light sensitivity so that the overall picture has the ideal balanced brightness.
  • The main casing material for the CCTV cameras is either plastic or aluminum compound. The metal casings are usually vandal and waterproof meaning they can be used internally or externally. The body type of all CCTV cameras is either dome or bullet. Dome cameras allow to be securely fixed to avoid any human intervention making them an ideal choice for most applications
  • Varifocal Cameras - these cameras allow to adjust the zoom. These are ideal for tills and door entrances where you need a more detailed closeup video of the objects.
  • Some very expensive cameras have an internal motor and can be controlled from the DVR. You can control the zoom and the horizontal and vertical position making them an ideal choice for casinos or banks where different areas need to be monitored. These are called PTZ cameras

My existing CCTV has very poor quality, can you help?
When your cctv has quality issues this can be caused by the DVR resolution or the cameras resolution. When you have some interference like lines or flickering, this is caused by loos cable connections or the quality of the cables itself.
In any case we can replace the weak link to improve your CCTV quality.
I have a 4 channel CCTV system can I upgrade?
For existing cc tv installations in most cases we can use the existing cables and the existing cameras, but to add more cameras we will need to run the additional cables and replace the existing DVR to connect the new cameras.
How do I access the CCTV using my desktop computer or laptop?
There are two way of accessing your CCTV from your computer. Using the CCTV software or using a standard Internet Explorer Browser.
For most people the internet explorer browser is a better option as it doesn't require any setup and most people are very familiar with ints interface.
We will setup domain name like so you can type it directly in the internet epxlorer address.
The remote access is protected with a login and we can setup up unlimited users with different access levels.
What can I do using the remote CCTV access?
Using a standard Internet Explorer browser you can access the CCTV for live video and audio monitoring. You can also playback previous footage. The remote access also allows you to backup any video to your local computer or usb flash drive. With the remote access you can change any settings on the DVR including the recording schedule, recording quality settings and much more.
How do I choose the correct camera for my installation?
Depending on your requirements we can choose the right camera type for your installation. In most cases for indoor use a standard 420tvl dome camera is ideal, unless you need a close-up detailed video. For close-up videos you will need the varifocal camera which allows to change the zoom. For outdoor use the vandal proof dome cameras will be ideal because they avoid any human intervention.
