There is a great variety of security cameras on the market nowadays which makes it sometimes difficult and challenging to make a decision. In this blog post I am going to discuss main types of security cameras commonly used for business needs.
This kind of cameras are perfect for monitoring halls and receptions, open office spaces, hallways, parking lots, warehouses, and driveways.
These cameras have a very ergonomic design which allows you to see everything without any obstruction. The camera is using the smoky dome obscure lens, which makes it hard for thieves to see the direction in which the lens of the device is pointed, so they are more likely to be afraid to be caught on camera.
Majority of those cameras boast an IK10 impact rating which helps to protect the device from physical impact and vandalism.
They are easily installed and most of them can be mounted either on a ceiling or on the wall.
These type of cameras are also called lipstick cameras sometimes, due to their shape.
Due to their size, they are widely used in banks and financial institutions. The camera can be mounted in pretty much any outdoor or indoor area. They are less noticeable than traditional cameras.
Placed outdoors, these cameras are great for preventing theft, property damage and vandalism and boast an IP66 (or higher) for weather protection like snow, rain, sand, dust, etc.
IR cameras, allow business proprietors to monitor the activity on their premises at night and in a low light. This kind of cameras also come in different IR ranges.
Smart IR is able to automatically adjust the light that’s being used for illumination of the scene depending on the distance to the object. This leads in nice and clear picture on the screen.
This kind of camera provides even a better level of security for your business. These devices are usually hidden inside of things like thermostat, smoke detector, AC adapter, flood light, etc. which makes them invisible.
The camera is great for monitoring business’ trouble spots, such as cash offices and cash registers, shipping and receiving areas, loading docks, supply rooms, etc.
People are more likely to do something when they know they are not being watched. Hidden cameras provide a great advantage of protecting their business, as the untrustworthy employee and thieves will definitely be monitored by the camera—without even being aware that they are being recorded.
In addition to that, with a hidden camera, a criminal is not able to block the view or vandalize the device.
Hidden camera helps to prevent liabilities, false claims, vandalism and all kind of theft.

Depending on the type of security system you decide to purchase for monitoring your business, the field of view, distance, resolution and lighting matter a lot. Because without all those things take into consideration you will not have a clear picture that will allow you to capture the identity of the criminal and his or her misconduct. Depending on your needs, there are many options to choose a perfect surveillance equipment to protect your assets.
