The camera unit is mounted inside a transparent dome which can be tinted to obscure the camera position. Dome cameras come in a wide variety of forms. They can be used for CCTV or IP systems. They come with IR's for low light conditions. Domes are more vandal proof than bullet cameras and are more covert so they can blend in better with your home or office decor. Domes are also great for wide area viewing more than distance.
A bullet camera is a small camera designed for security applications. The name comes from the small size of these cameras resembling bullets. Bullet cameras are more used on exteriors of homes and businesses as they are great for distance viewing. These also come with IR's for low light conditions like night time. Bullets are used in CCTV, IP, and Wireless camera systems. Bullet cameras can come with many specific features, for example specifically designed to capture license plates.
PTZ - Meaning Pan, Tilt, Zoom
PTZ's are capable of remote directional and zoom control. In television production, PTZ controls are used with professional video cameras in television studios, sporting events, and commercial locations. They are commonly referred to as robos, an abbreviation of robotic camera. These are normally mounted high on a commercial building or pole to view a very large area with the ability to remotely move the camera around.
DVR- Digital Video Recorder
One of the great benefits of a DVR property surveillance system is that it offers 24-hour protection. DVR systems can record for extensive periods of time, meaning a property can be protected by video footage 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With a DVR property surveillance system, families or employees can feel safe, day or night, knowing their surveillance system will alert them and capture all images, should someone attempt to enter their property. DVR recorders are used when you are using a coax camera or CCTV.
A network video recorder (NVR) is a software program that records video in a digital format to a disk drive, USB flash drive, SD memory card or other mass storage device. An NVR contains no dedicated video capture hardware. Available from 4 channel up to 32 channel systems. These are more common in commercial industries when their is already a network system being used for offices and employees. Video on a DVR is encoded and processed at the DVR, while video on an NVR is encoded and processed at the camera, then streamed to the NVR for storage or remote viewing. An NVR recorder will be used when using IP or wireless cameras.
