Security Cameras Types

With many technological advances taking place over the years, and increasing crime rates, the progress made in the field of security and surveillance has been considerable. What started as a simple concept, requiring a single camera and a video tape, has now become an intricate network of multiple cameras, timers, recording devices, and other additional equipment and accessories. The market of security cameras types has never been more exciting, as new models are being branded and introduced on a consistent basis. This article will discuss some recent types and models of surveillance equipment.

One popular system for home surveillance is the 4 cameras DVR set up. This system allows for four separate recording channels, fully integrated with both audio and video recording capabilities. One step up from this is the 8 cameras DVR system. With four additional cameras, this system is more suitable for estate surveillance, apartment complexes, or office building security. Those in need of even more coverage will be happy to discover the 16 cameras DVR (16 Channels), offering 16 different camera placements to provide surveillance of many areas and from many angles. All packages will have the option of including waterproof and weatherproof cameras, night vision capabilities, and even vandal-proof technology.

A common security camera model is the LIT90E, or Box Cam LIT90E. These cameras can record high quality footage up to 50 meters away, and come equipped with a water resistant built-in cable bracket. A manual zoom lens is also provided for monitored surveillance needs. Also popular is the LICG36, a weatherproof IR camera. The LICG36 can record at distances up to 30 meters, and remains functional during times of extreme cold or heat. These models tend to be bulky and obvious, acting as a deterrent against shady characters, as well as offering surveillance.

For a less bulky appearance, many people prefer dome cameras. One type of IR dome camera, that also provides vandal proof features, is the LIRDC security camera. This camera takes color recordings at a distance of up to 30 meters, providing auto white balance and back light compensation features for high quality video. It also has a manual zoom lens for close inspection of monitored areas. Similar to the LIRDC is the LIRDB, also a vandal proof IR dome camera. This model only has a working distance of 20 meters, for those surveillance projects that don't require long distance recordings.

There are many security cameras types to meet the surveillance needs of all interested parties. Whether a CCTV surveillance 4 cameras DVR system is required, or a 16 cameras DVR is preferred, there are surveillance packages available for varying properties. Home and business security systems may require specific equipment and accessories, all available through companies like that at RushRash Inc.
