A guide to CCTV camera types and where they work best

Looking to implement CCTV but feeling overwhelmed by all the camera choices?

CCTV is a valuable investment for your business.  When installed properly, camera surveillance can keep your staff and site secure, by providing you with real time and recorded footage of your premises onsite and remotely.   Well placed and visible camera units can also act as a deterrent for anti-social behaviour.

If you’ve been looking into implementing a CCTV system, you may be unsure about which cameras you need, and where to place them to get the most out of your surveillance setup?  This guide will give you an overview of the main types of camera and how to get the best out of them

With a high quality camera built inside a glass dome, choose these when you need a vandal-proof, inconspicuous solution.
