STEP 1 – WE HELP YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT NETWORK CAMERA SHAPES FOR YOUR FLOORPLAN/MASTERPLAN
Compared to their analogue counterparts, network cameras provide several advantages in a variety of applications. These include improved footage quality, flexibility, environment adaptability, Power Over Ethernet, analytics, and other specialised applications.
Although certain initial concerns regarding specification are different when choosing a network camera than when selecting an analogue camera, others are the same when selecting a network camera. Location, the field of view, range of vision, internal or exterior deployment, fixed or zoom lens capability, ambient illumination, as well as the many kinds of brackets and mountings (for installation), are all important considerations to make.
When choosing a camera, it is critical to have a thorough understanding of the installation location as well as the camera's intended use in order to guarantee that appropriate pictures are sent to the video management system. There are many different kinds of network cameras to select from, as well as there are many different types of analogue cameras with similar functionalities, and most manufacturers offer some models to meet a variety of requirements.
Generally speaking, there are 3 different popular questions of network cameras that we help you to answer:
- Which shapes of network cameras should you choose and where to best locate them? - Fixed shaped network cameras have a fixed viewing direction and may be equipped with a fixed, varifocal, or zoom lens to provide a clear image. Most of the time, they are in the "eyeball", “glass dome”, "bullet" or “turret” style. Fixed dome cameras are small and compact, and they are housed in dome housing. In comparison to a conventional fixed camera, they are smaller and more discrete, and it is simple to determine which direction the camera is pointed. They also come with a lens that is either fixed lens, varifocal or motorised zoom.
- 360-degree cameras, often known as panoramic cameras or fisheye cameras, capture images with a field of view that extends around the whole camera. They are particularly well suited for retail applications in which a large area must be covered in a single view. Additionally, the cameras may be connected to point-of-sale terminals and utilised to monitor the movement of customers. PTZ dome network cameras also belong to this group, which has the ability to pan, tilt, and zoom, allowing them to cover a larger area while maintaining a high level of picture quality at close range.
Depending on the requirement and changes of the security demands, manufacturers have their R&D department keep researching and upgrading their products, including the designs of the product.
