CCTV (closed-circuit television) is an essential component of business security. It provides 24/7 video monitoring, live or recorded, of an organization’s premises, including both indoor and outdoor areas. CCTV can deter criminal activity, capture footage of incidents, and provide evidence for investigations. It can also help in monitoring employee behaviour and identifying safety hazards. With advanced features such as facial recognition and remote monitoring, CCTV technology continues to evolve to enhance business security.
A typical CCTV system comprises all the necessary elements to display real-time video, record, and replay previously recorded video. Below are the standard components of a CCTV system from InsurGuard Security.
There is a wide range of options and features available for CCTV cameras, including HD color and black-and-white, fixed or variable lenses, and automatic pan, tilt, and zoom control. Additionally, CCTV cameras can be designed for indoor or outdoor use, and can be either wired or wireless. Below are two of our most popular CCTV camera features.
4K Security Camera
A 4K security camera is a powerful tool for protecting a business’s physical assets and deterring criminal activity. With its ultra-high definition resolution, it captures clear and detailed footage, making it easier to identify potential threats and investigate incidents. The camera’s advanced features, such as motion detection and night vision, also enhance its effectiveness as a surveillance tool. By providing reliable and comprehensive coverage of a business’s premises, a 4K security camera helps to ensure the safety and security of employees, customers, and property.
Here are a few technical specs that are found in a typical 4K camera:
