Moreover, the constant innovation of technology in the sector is making it easier and easier for anyone to have a service of these characteristics.

Different types of security cameras

Depending on the type of business or home you own and the variety of entrances, doors and windows, there are different types of security cameras that will suit all areas of your home or business.

  • WiFi or wireless cameras
  • IP cameras
  • Outdoor cameras 
  • Indoor cameras
  • Night vision and infrared cameras
  • Motion and zoom cameras
  • CCTV or closed circuits

WiFi or wireless cameras

Wireless cameras do not require a wired connection, they are telematic. For this reason, the control panel can be set up from anywhere. They are used in both private homes and businesses. They are smaller and lighter than conventional alarms, making it easier to choose their location.

IP cameras

IP cameras are cameras that connect directly to the Internet. They are the most widely used surveillance cameras today because they incorporate Wi-Fi and you can access their images from any point and device, managing and capturing them if you need to. They are often used in businesses to see how activity is going when you are not there from any location. It is also ideal in homes to monitor that children, elderly dependents or even pets are not having any problems in your brief absence. There are very professional cameras for large companies, and simpler ones for home use.

Outdoor cameras

This type of security cameras are prepared for uncovered areas so they are usually very prepared for adverse weather conditions, they are waterproof and anti-fog to ensure the quality of the images. They are usually located in gardens or car parks.

Indoor cameras

They are the simplest and most widely used on the market, are usually installed inside homes and do not require as much image quality as other security cameras. They are very versatile and accessible to the consumer.

Night vision or infrared cameras

This type of camera is often used in places with poor lighting or where vision loss may occur at night. They have infrared to identify movement and figures. They normally record all day and at night they automatically turn on their infrared with a black and white vision. They are more expensive than other cameras because of their technology.

Motion and zoom cameras

These are security cameras that follow the movement and can enlarge the image in case of need or detect any risk to proceed to a clear identification of the alert. They are normally 360º which allows the entire space and environment to be checked. They are usually installed in businesses or spaces that, due to their size, leave more room for the camera.

Benefits of security cameras

Nowadays, there are many ways to keep your home and business protected: alarms, armoured doors, anti-theft systems or fog systems, but, without a doubt, one of the most widely used systems is the installation of security cameras.

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) or video surveillance systems have become an investment for many to keep people protected and monitored, increasing peace of mind for families, homes, employees and businesses.

The main benefits of CCTV video surveillance systems are as follows:

  • Prevention of criminal activities, burglaries and break-ins.
  • Assistance in solving crimes at the moment of recognition of the offender.
  • Reduced surveillance costs due to its ability to cover very large areas.
  • Increased control by being able to remotely monitor what is happening where the camera is installed.
  • In the case of a business, it allows the quality of service to be improved by analysing the actions of staff or customers. It also allows the analysis of the information collected, such as the number of people counted or their route through the different parts of the business.
