Best infrared video surveillance cameras

The infrared video surveillance camera has become one of the main precautions when it comes to home security or commercial premises and with which you can protect your property at all times. Before buying an infrared surveillance camera, you need to have some basic knowledge about the technical terms to make a correct selection later.

Most closed-circuit video surveillance systems (CCTV) are based on outdoor and indoor surveillance cameras that are in different shapes and sizes. They are designed to resist the many situations that may arise and from this point of view you must first establish where the rooms you will buy will be installed.

Dome cameras

These patterns are often found in public buildings and can be mounted both vertically and horizontally thanks to the flexible support that allows this. On indoor dome camera models you can choose the lens for a wide angle or varifocal lens to manually adjust the angle, viewing distance and focus.

Also on these models is the OSD menu that allows you to adjust how the image is displayed. With a joystick, you have the freedom to change certain functions and so you can adjust brightness, contrast, clarity, detail detail, etc.

Note that there are two variants for indoor dome surveillance cameras. These can be purchased with either a white plastic case that can be installed in places where there is no risk of being hit, or with a metal housing (antivandal) for semi-open spaces such as block stairs.

Exterior cameras

More surely you have seen these models of outdoor surveillance cameras in gas stations, car parks, etc. Their role is to monitor all activity that takes place outside a space, but the most important thing is that by size it discourages any potential offender.

An outdoor surveillance camera has a metal housing, very well encapsulated and thus withstand the weather conditions outside. In other words, regardless of whether it’s raining, snowing or very hot, the outdoor camera will not fail in any way.

As with dome cameras, these outdoor models can have fixed or varifocal lenses. A major advantage is that in this category we also find ptz (pan-til-zoom) cameras that allow you to adjust the position of the lens with a simple click. This way you can patrol a perimeter whenever it is needed and you can even approach an object if it seems to you that something suspicious happens to you.
