Network systems also include monitoring from closed circuit television (CCTV). These units have gone through significant improvements over the last few years by incorporating digital feed and sophisticated computer access devices.
Dome cameras provide a 360 degree view so they can pivot in any direction. These are the gadgets you see in Atlantic City casinos. Since the dome is shaded, it is not certain where the camera is directed and if it is actually working. This causes it to become a deterrent, even if the unit isn’t on.
Imitation units tend to be applied as mainly deterrents and are little more than the camera housing. Dome camera housing is normally used for imitation cameras. These systems are typically used by people who cannot afford a real surveillance solution, yet still need a deterrent for would-be intruders. They do a pretty good job since they are practically indistinguishable from authentic cameras.

The lenses will often be made from fog resistant glass so moisture and humidity doesn’t impair the view. They are often aimed in one place and have limited range. More expensive units can usually rotate their direction, however, most cameras are still and need to be moved manually to change angles.
Night Vision units are able to use infrared technology to allow you to see clearly in almost complete darkness. Some of these systems can now be used in both day and night, allowing for more consistent monitoring.

Motion detectors may be installed together with your alarm and security system. Cameras are initiated any time the sensing unit identifies movement. The recording starts as soon as activity is detected. Speak with your security expert to determine which configurations are best for you.
