What are Pan, Tilt and Zoom Camera Options?

In looking for a suitable surveillance security camera for your home or business i ST. louis or Saint Charles MO, you may encounter features like pan, tilt and zoom. What are these features for? How are these features important in your choice for the ideal surveillance security camera unit?

Pan or panning feature is the ability of the camera unit to move from left to right; this is done through a remote control system or automatically set up using a timer feature in the surveillance system. A camera with panning features improves its ability to monitor the area or the perimeter since it can move from left to right maximizing the safety of the user. There are so many surveillance camera systems with panning options; if you think that this feature will greatly improve your security and safety then make this as one of the most important features in your list.

Tilt or tilting feature is the camera’s ability to move or focus from different angles; just like panning, tilting is controlled remotely through the camera’s system. A camera with tilting features also improves the user’s ability to monitor his area or perimeter. With this feature you may remotely focus your camera to a particular spot to closely monitor a subject. Tilting features are often combined with panning and zooming features to provide the best camera for outdoor or indoor use.

Zooming features on the other hand are features that allow you to focus the camera on a particular subject for how many times. Zoom may be done while the camera is in the process of recording or monitoring an area while you may also zoom recorded video as well. Surveillance cameras differ in zoom capabilities and generally, more powerful and high tech cameras have more powerful zoom features compared to least expensive ones. Zooming enhances the user’s ability to monitor his surroundings since he can zoom and focus on specific subjects and elements in the video. Most zooming features are combined with auto focus features to completely enhance the video monitoring capabilities of a camera system.

Other features that offer convenience to users are night vision, more channel options, the use of different camera sensors and auto adjust functions. Night vision allows users to record even in minimal light or during night time; surveillance camera systems have different night vision ranges. Channel outputs may also differ from one camera surveillance system to another while camera sensors may either be CMOS sensors or ore high-powered camera sensors.

Buying a camera surveillance system for the first time may be a difficult ordeal for someone who has never bought a system before. The best thing that a beginner can do do is to compare camera units before making a final purchase. Pan, tilt and zoom features are the most common features that are expected from a suitable surveillance camera however a homeowner or a business owner should be able to look beyond these features to find the most efficient camera system for their home or business.  

These type of surveillance cameras cost more than the normal none moving camera but the different options this camera gives you is awesome. We installed some of these for an automobile dealer and you could zoom to the highway and read license plates and see faces real clear. This all depends on the budget you have to spend and what features you are looking for.

Having security cameras and security alarms installed will definitely help you feel better about leaving your home or sleeping soundly at night without the fear that someone whom you don’t know may enter your home or business.

Surveillance Cameras Saint Louis and Saint Charles

Are you a do it yourself installer for security cameras? I would like to discuss the things you should consider.

Are you thinking of installing your own Wireless cctv security cameras?

1. Please remember you have to power this camera even if you go with a wireless CCTV. This can be powered close to the camera and save you from running this all the way back to the DVR. If you don’t have a 110vac close to the position of the cameras, you might as well run a wired camera and run the coaxial and the 18/2 power cable all the way back to the digital video recorder. In my opinion of installing electronics for over 20 years wired cameras work better and less maintenance. If you live in the St. Louis/ St. Charles area you can purchase from our online store and we can provide you with some tech support for free.

Are you thinking of installing your own hard wired surveillance system?

2. Now we are on the same page. I love hard wired systems that are ran with a Siamese cable. This is a full all cooper coaxial with an 18/2 power wire. That is correct 2 separate wires connected together for ease of installing. Please think of how many cameras you need or want or can afford. The dvr is the $ ? mark because you will need to know how many channels you need. Always over size this because this will give you room to expand in the future. If you buy a Sams or Costco system will will get what you pay for. Tech support not very good. The quality of equipment is like shopping at like Aldi vers Schnucks. No brands can cause more trouble in the end. A great saying for this is: Spend $100.00 to save $5.00. I have tried this myself and it is not worth it. When you are trying to catch employees stealing, or need a piece of mind for you and your family and or your work place.  Most surveillance CCTV security cameras run on 12vdc or 24vac.

Are you thinking of Solar powered security cameras?

3. While solar powered are great for construction site, for a home or farm not really worth the cost. A normal one camera system would cost about 10k. You have to account how many batteries and electronics this system would require. The labor a lone is very costly.

What brand od security camera are you thinking of buying?

4. Bosch, Axis, Pelco, Geovision, Speco, Linear, Honeywell. This is only a few security camera manufactures. I would suggest researching the warranties, find reviews on line of the surveillance camera. Ask companies or installers that have installed many different brands of security. While more people are reading into the CCTV thing there are many things to consider. Out of all the DVR’s I really like the Geovision because the dvr can be repaired really easy like changing a hard drive on a computer. Most other brands have to be sent back to the factory to be fixed. Also with Geovision this dvr can be upgraded to more channels almost by anyone.

How much money can you save by installing the CCTV yourself?

5. In most cases you don’t hardly save because a company like Eye Spy Electronics buy’s some much equipment we get a below average price when we buy. When you have to buy retail in the end you might save $100.00 and by the time you count your time in installing if you don’t mess something up, that could get real expensive. Remember with 12 volt DC the polarity does matter. If you hook this up wrong you could fry your new cameras that you paid for and warranty will not cover this mistake.
