Different types of connectors for CCTV and IP applications. The most common is the BNC connector. There are several types of BNC connectors but the most common are twist on, crimp on, and compression. The twist style are the easiest to use since they do not require any tools to install. Twist on connectors are recomended for DIYers. Crimp and compression are recommended for security camera installers. IP cameras require ethernet cable which use RJ45 connectors. RJ45 connectors come in several styles like the BNC connectors. The most common is the crimp on RJ45 module.

The most advanced security camera in the market is a PTZ security camera. PTZ acronym stands for pan, tilt, and zoom. These cameras are equipped with motors for panning, tilting, and optically zooming the camera's lens. A PTZ security camera gives users 360 degree coverage from a remote location using a joystick or mouse. Panning allows a camera to rotate 360 degrees. By tilting, a PTZ camera can move the imaging sensor straight down to capture objects directly below the camera.

Some of the PTZ security cameras come equipped with long distance lenses which allow users to safely zoom in on distant objects without having to manually adjust a lens like a traditional camera.

  • Indoor PTZ cameras can be used in conference rooms to hold virtual meetings and move from one speaker to another. Others can be used in specialized applications like oil rigs where it might be exposed to the elements.
  • Explosion proof PTZ cameras let users zoom in on dangerous machinery without risking their safety. 

There is a perception that PTZ security cameras would be ineffective without a user controlling the camera. Nowadays these cameras can be be configured to rotate without user input. This function is called a tour guard or location presets. Some PTZ cameras have sensor inputs which allow for the integration of external sensors which can trigger movement to a preset location. This means the camera can be moved to a predefined location like a gate or entrance when movement is detected.

In certain applications, one PTZ camera can replace several fixed cameras. They can be mounted from the ceiling using a pendant mount to maximize the coverage area around the camera. Other mounting options are available. Horizon PTZ cameras sit at the top of a pole with a pivoting head which allows the camera to view above the horizon. These types of cameras are typically used on an airport runway where a camera might need to view above eye level. Horizon cameras can also point down but unlike a traditional motorized camera, it is limited by the pole its mounted on.

Selecting the correct PTZ security camera for your application can be difficult. Please feel free to call on of our security camera experts today so we can help you find the right camera for you.
