Main Types

There are two main types of cameras: Bullet and Dome Cameras. Regardless of your property type (residential or business) and size, there are some subtle differences between the two security cameras - Key differences include the shape, installation and camera range. While Bullet Cameras stick out and point in one direction, Dome Cameras are more discreet due to their dome shell protection and wider camera angle.


Sub-Types

Two other sub-types of cameras used in a security application in mainly commercial, farming or estate applications would be Thermal Imaging Cameras and LPR (Licence Plate Recognition) Cameras.
The three main types of Thermal Cameras used are: Bullet Static – cheapest option with basic functionality, Bullet PT or PTZ – mid-range price with better functionality i.e., the ability to pan-tilt-zoom and bi-spectral PTZ – the most expensive type with full functionality including pan-tilt-zoom and having both a thermal lens and an optical lens for dual functionality.
LPR or License Plate Recognition Cameras are used mainly for commercial applications where vehicle identification is necessary. These cameras have the ability to focus on and capture the number plate of a vehicle in most condition regardless of the quality.

Bullet Camera

Camera Benefits

  • ⦿ Longer range
  • ⦿ Ease of installation
  • ⦿ Indoor & outdoor use
  • ⦿ Weatherproof
  • ⦿ Night Vision

More Informaton

  • Bullet cameras are also named by their distinct cylindrical shape, which looks like a bullet shell or lipstick tube. As one of the most common types of security cameras, bullet cameras are a visible deterrent. In fact, studies have found the presence of security cameras will make your property a less desirable target. Like dome cameras, bullet cameras can be installed indoors and outdoors.

Dome Camera

Camera Benefits

  • ⦿ More discreet – blends in with surroundings
  • ⦿ Rotating camera & wide angle
  • ⦿ Vandal resistant
  • ⦿ Indoor & outdoor use
  • ⦿ Weatherproof
  • ⦿ Night Vision

Used For

  • Dome security cameras get their name by their circular, dome shape. The security camera is encased in a transparent protective dome. Although dome security cameras can be used both indoors and outdoors, many businesses including hotels, restaurants, and retail stores use dome cameras inside due to their discrete design.

Thermal Cameras

Camera Benefits

  • ⦿ Longer range
  • ⦿ Ease of installation
  • ⦿ Temperature distinction
  • ⦿ Doesn’t need ambient light to function
  • ⦿ Thermal Vision – Sees heat radiating from objects
  • ⦿ More discreet – no red IR led

Used For

  • Thermal cameras will work anywhere, a few factors might define whether or not they truly make sense for your site. Thermal cameras need to be installed as part of an overall solution, adding value rather than being a primary form of security.

License Plate Recognition Cameras

Camera Benefits

  • ⦿ Number plate clarity
  • ⦿ Accuracy
  • ⦿ Removes human error
  • ⦿ Weatherproof

Used For

  • Automatic license plate recognition eliminates the tedious process of manually recording numbers. Especially when a car speeds by, it’s almost impossible for a person to spot the exact registration number. However, automatic number plate recognition systems don’t just record the numbers, but they do it in real-time, which gives a clear view of traffic insights as well.

REPORTING & ANALYTICS

HOW IT WORKS

The Surion Sense continuously collects data of events per camera and track the responses of each event.  Our engineers can use this data to provide you with deeper insights into the patterns of events we are detecting and can then suggest possible further optimisation of the system and solutions.

The information can also be used by you to track for example movements and times of staff, vehicles, deliveries, equipment usage etc.

REPORTING AND ANALYTICS SERVICES

We provide a monthly report of the status and up-time of all equipment connected to the system. Graphs and analytics of events are provided. We do long-term analytics of patterns and irregularities.

The system is checked every second to ensure all cameras and software is running as it should and this gets reported on.

MAINTENANCE

HOW IT WORKS

We know that it doesn’t help to have a system if it is not always on and working optimally.  Unfortunately, systems become faulty due to weather, power surges, connectors becoming loose or something as simple as a spider covering a lense. Cameras also require regular updates of firmware.

REPORTING, ANALYTICS and Onsite Maintenance Services

We perform quarterly site visits and physical inspection of all equipment. Urgent faults are repaired onsite. Remote repairs happen within 24 hours when it is possible. New guards are trained on the system.
