Security is the difference between customers flocking into your facility or none at all. No one (even yourself) wants to be in place where they feel that their life, safety or property is in danger. Regardless of the excellent facilities you have, people will be unwilling to use them if you cannot give them this basic need, security. 24- Hour business facilities such as hotels, bars and lodgings must be well protected at all times using state-of-art systems such as closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras. Here is the best buying guide to choosing the right combination of CCTV camera for your business facility:
Night Vision/Infrared Cameras
Just as the name of the equipment alludes, infrared cameras are designed to view and capture images in pitch-black conditions of the night. They employ infrared LED capable of sending out light with long wavelength. The light is invisible to your naked human eye but it can penetrate the darkness and show an image of a stationery or moving object lurking in the dark. Night vision cameras are ideal for outdoor applications where there is limited light. You need them in and around the fences of your premises in areas where burglars can create an opening to access your business facility.
Dome CCTV Cameras
Dome CCTV cameras derive their name from the dome-shaped shell in which they sit. They are ideal for indoor surveillance applications due to their relatively small size and a housing that makes them visible yet unobtrusive. This means that they do not interfere with the activities going on, but they are visible to most people within the building. The aim of the design is to ensure that anyone planning to commit a crime within the building knows that you are monitoring their movement.
Bullet CCTV Cameras
Bullet CCTV cameras are another type of security cameras you can choose in this family. They derive their name from the long, cylindrical design similar to that of a bullet. Due to the nature of their design, bullet CCTV cameras can only capture images from a fixed position. They are best suited to entrances, corridors or exits where someone's movement is highly predictable.
Discreet CCTV Cameras
If you want to monitor the movement of people without their knowledge, discreet CCTV cameras are the way to go. They can be designed to look like a fan, electric switch, or anything that will not raise someone's attention. They can help you monitor rogue employees.
