How to Select the Correct CCTV Camera to Use?

There are literally thousands of camera models from hundreds of approved manufacturers available in the market, and this makes the selection of the most appropriate CCTV camera to use a very confusing issue.

In this article, I will try to explain very simply the different parameters you need to look into when selecting a CCTV camera for your project, as well as the required knowledge to determine if what you are being offered really matches what you expect or not.

selecting the correct cctv

Key parameters for selecting the proper type of CCTV camera:

  1. Outdoor/Indoor: One of the parameters that can be easily filtered by available choices is whether the camera is for indoor or outdoor use. While it is essential to use an “outdoor” type camera for outdoor installations to provide IP65/IP66 weather protection, “indoor” cameras are less bulky and more cost effective for indoor installations.

    Indoor Camera

    1. Coverage Area / Target Distance: The second most important parameter in selecting the correct type of camera is to determine the coverage area and target distance for each camera in your system. Below are some of the key camera parameters that will be determined based on the coverage area / target distance:
      • Fixed vs PTZ: PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) cameras as the name suggests give the possibility to user to turn the camera view to any needed direction and to zoom on specific areas. They can be also pre-programmed to automatically scan specific routes. On the other hand, fixed cameras provide constant uninterrupted monitoring of a specific, fixed area like entrances and exits or perimeters.



      • Type of Lens: the type of lens determines the angle width and the distance that each camera can cover. As a rule of thumb, the wider the coverage angle is, the less distance is covered by the camera. Using a vari-focal lens enables you to adjust these two parameters of the camera in practice. There are also 180 degrees or 360 degrees fisheye cameras that are used indoors for providing a wider coverage.

        360 Fisheye View

    2. Image Resolution: in IP cameras, this is determined by number of pixels (color dots) that each camera image consists of. The higher the image resolution, the more image details is captured and provided by the camera. At the same time, more storage capacity would be required for recording. The current common resolutions these days start from 720p HD (1280 x 720 pixels) and go up to 5MP (5 Megapixel or 2592 x 1944 pixels).

    3. Night Vision / IR: If you require capturing video in darkness, then you should look for cameras with day/night and IR (infrared) lighting configurations. IR cameras use infrared LEDs that are lit automatically when dark and enable the camera to capture black & white video in complete darkness. The coverage of cameras in the darkness is determined by the power of their IR light which is a parameter you should look into when selecting such cameras.

    4. Camera Housing: camera housing is also an important factor to consider when selecting your camera. Below are the main types:
      • Dome Cameras: Dome cameras are used both for indoors and outdoors for both fixed and PTZ cameras. They have a nice look and it is also hard to determine which direction the camera is pointing at.
        dome 1 dome 2
      • Box Cameras: These cameras are also used both indoors and outdoors and are the standard type of security cameras we all have an image of in mind. The lens and direction of the cameras are clearly visible and clearly show everyone that the location is under CCTV surveillance.
        Box 1 Box 2
      • Bullet Cameras: These are small, cylindrical type, waterproof housings that are usually used for outdoor cameras especially when you don’t want the cameras to capture much attention.
        bullet 1 bullet 2
    5. Vulnerability: Apart from indoor/outdoor type of cameras, you might also want to select “vandal-resistant” cameras that come with very-hard-to-break glass covers to protect the camera against vandalism. There are also Explosion-proof cameras that are extremely expensive and protect the camera against explosions.

    6. Other features: In addition to above main parameters, new IP cameras also come with a constantly-expanding list of new features and enhancements – these include video analytic and enhancement features, web interface for direct view and remote monitoring and control, automatic alert notifications via email and SMS, and even internal NVR for recording of videos. So these are also the parameters you might want to check into.

    Please note while I’ve tried to focus only on the key factors, it is also important to emphasize that designing a professional CCTV solution still requires a high level of expertise and experience and it is always worth it to have a professional company involved in designing the proper CCTV solution tailored for your needs.

What is HD-CVI?

What is HD-CVI?

HD-CVI stands for High Definition Composite Video Interface. This is a brand new technology in the security camera industry that provides a different method of transmitting video signals over coaxial cables. Until this new technology surfaced, analog CCTV video was limited to 960h video resolution. 960h resolution refers to the 30% increase in horizontal resolution, so the maximum analog resolution up to this point was 960 x 480 pixels. This has been the accepted limit to analog video transmission for many years. In order to achieve greater transmission would mean switching to digital video using either HD-SDI (High Definition Serial Digital Interface) or Network IP video formats.

Enter HD-CVI, a true alternative to Network IP solutions. HD-CVI uses a licensed video transmitter and receiver that is able to transmit up to 1080p video resolution (1920 x 1080) in an uncompressed format over the same standard coaxial cable that is used for standard CCTV cameras. This uncompressed video format is able to transmit over longer distances than either HD-SDI or Network IP cameras and without the latency and bandwidth issues that are so common. Additionally, HD-CVI is able to transmit video, audio and control (OSD or PTZ) over a single coaxial cable instead of requiring separate cables for each transmission.

What is really separating this technology from the rest of the options for video transmission is the cost effectiveness of HD-CVI. In most cases HD-CVI is around the same price as the older analog CCTV technology and is far less expensive than HD-SDI or IP Network transmission.

When comparing HD-CVI to Analog CCTV cameras:

  • CCTV cameras are limited to 960h resolution which is 960 x 480 pixels. HD-CVI cameras can transmit up to 1080p resolution (2 Megapixel) which is 1920 x 1080 pixels. HD-CVI is capable of up to 450% great resolution and detail than standard CCTV cameras and DVRs.
  • CCTV can only transmit video over the single coaxial cable. Audio and control must be run over separate cables. HD-CVI can transmit video, audio and control over a single cable saving money and time.
  • The price point of analog CCTV and HD-CVI is about the same. You get more resolution for the money with HD-CVI.

When comparing HD-CVI to HD-SDI the benefits are:

  • Longer video transmission distances. HD-SDI is limited to 333 feet for video transmission. HD-CVI can be transmitted up to 1500ft.
  • HD-SDI can only transmit video. HD-CVI can transmit video, audio and control requiring less cable infrastructure.
  • HD-SDI can only transmit over high quality copper core coaxial cable. HD-CVI can transmit over any cable used for CCTV cameras. It will work with copper clad aluminum, Ethernet cable with video baluns and even prefabricated plug and play cables.
  • HD-CVI is less expensive than HD-SDI.

When comparing HD-CVI to Network IP cameras:

  • IP cameras cannot transmit video over coaxial cable natively so the infrastructure must be built with ethernet cable or fiber. HD-CVI can transmit over Coaxial Cable or Ethernet cable using video baluns allowing the use of existing infrastructure saving money and time.
  • IP cameras cannot transmit video for distances over 333 feet without using relay devices on ethernet cable. HD-CVI can transmit video over 1500 feet without using relay devices over coax or ethernet cable.
  • IP cameras require bandwidth considerations and are subject to latency and collisions as well as IP conflicts. HD-CVI cameras do not consume any network bandwidth nor do they have latency or collision issues. This means that HD-CVI will not interfere with the operation of your network and is much simpler to install and configure.
  • HD-CVI technology is much less expensive than IP Network cameras and recorders.

There are some benefits to IP cameras over HD-CVI cameras that should be considered as well

  • IP cameras are capable of higher resolution than 1080p and the available resolutions will continue to grow in the future.
  • IP cameras are capable of POE power so you can transmit both power and video on a single ethernet cable if using a POE camera and a POE switch.
  • An IP camera is a network device itself so it can function without the need for a network video recorder.
  • If there is an existing network infrastructure and available network bandwidth is not an issue, it can be easier to add additional IP cameras to an existing network.

is one of the pioneers of HD-CVI technology so if you are considering this technology we are the experts in the industry. This technology should be considered if you wish to upgrade an existing CCTV camera system to megapixel quality video. By simply replacing the existing analog cameras and the DVR with our cost effective HD-CVI cameras and DVR you will instantly upgrade your system to megapixel quality video producing an increase of up to 450% in resolution! There should be no need to replace the existing cable infrastructure which is usually the most expensive portion of the installation.

If you are considering a new security camera system, we highly recommend our HD-CVI systems since it will cost around the same as the analog CCTV systems sold today. It can provide you with the same resolution as most IP Network camera systems for a fraction of the cost and without the bandwidth and latency issues experienced with network cameras.

If cost is not a factor at all, then we recommend you seriously consider an all IP network camera system since the ethernet cable infrastructure can be used over again in the future to upgrade your cameras as higher resolution cameras become more available. Keep in mind that IP camera systems usually require network expertise to ensure that you have adequate bandwidth available inside the network and to ensure that the network camera system does not negatively impact your existing network infrastructure.

Requirements for an HD CVI security camera system:
When planning the installation of a HD CVI surveillance system, make sure to consider all the parts that will be needed.

You will need to select your cable infrastructure:

  • The best choice for HD CVI video transmission is high quality RG6 or RG59. Most professional security system installers will chose Siamese cable since that will include both RG59 for video, audio and control transmission and 18 gauge power wire for power transmission in a single run. We have tested both copper core coax cable and CCA (Copper Clad Aluminum) Coax cable and both have performed well.
  • You can use CAT5 or CAT6 cable with the same video baluns you use for analog CCTV cameras. This infrastructure does perform well, but the quality of the video is slightly degraded. It is still a dramatic increase in resolution over the analog CCTV camera resolution. Most people will never notice the difference in video quality. We estimate the degradation in quality to be around 5-10%.
  • We have tested prefabricate plug and play cables. Again, the resolution is excellent, but the video quality is also slightly degraded. There is around the same 5-10% degradation, again barely noticeable to most people.

You will need to select your connectors:

  • The most popular connectors are BNC Twist on connectors because no tools are necessary. These will work fine.
  • BNC compression connectors is what most professional CCTV installers will use for the cable connection. This is also what we recommend.
  • BNC Crimp Ons are also popular and will perform very well.

Select your power source:

  • HD CVI can be powered the same way as analog CCTV cameras. Most HD CVI cameras will require either 12V DC or 24V AC power. You can choose from various power distribution boxes or easy plug in power transformers.
  • Select your recording DVR (Digital Video Recorder)
  • You will not be able to use your existing DVR (Digital Video Recorder) with the HD CVI cameras. Like HD-SDI and Network IP camera systems you will need to select an HD CVI DVR in order to be able to record your HD CVI cameras. We offer a wide range of HD-CVI DVRs and in most cases, the HD CVI DVRs are the same price of even less expensive than their equal standard CCTV DVR or NVR and they are less expensive than most HD SDI DVRs.

Tramingo Tracker


How Tramigo Works

How and Where Tramigo Works

Tramigo vehicle tracking device combines the GPS (Global Positioning System), GSM (mobile network) and geographical information (TLD Tramigo Landmark Data) into one device.

Tramigo uses GPS satellites to position itself resulting in very accurate positioning, then it finds the closest TLD landmark to that point from its internal memory and sends the information across to any authorized mobile phone as a text message using the GSM network. Tramigo is commanded with simple text message commands; sending the word ‘Find’ or letter ‘F’ to your Tramigo will result in you getting the actual location of your Tramigo tracking device back to your phone as a message. Simple, intelligent and very secure.

Tramigo is multilingual and is currently available with local landmark information to your country and over 220 other countries and areas. Please get in touch with us for the best way to purchase Tramigo in your country.

Why Choose Tramigo?

What Makes Tramigo the World’s Best Selling Tracker

Selecting the correct tracker is difficult as most seem similar on the outside. Almost everyone can locate your device using GPS location and lets you set alarms for speeds, geofencing or motion detection. The reality however is that if you can’t receive messages from your device – or understand the locations your device is sending you, your tracking device is useless in that moment. When choosing a tracker to secure your assets or company fleet, make sure of the following:

Accessible Anytime, Anywhere – Even When Offline

If the tracker says you need to login or set up an account on a website, it’s very likely that you’ll only be able to track by connecting to the site. Unless your plan is to stare at a monitor day in and out, this isn’t a good way to track. Tramigo gives you full mobile software to get all updates – or only selected critical messages – direct to your mobile phone, even when you don’t have access to the Internet.

Easy to Use in Your language

Most low grade trackers come with no or poor user interface software and machine translated instructions that at worst ask you to memorize long alphanumeric commands just to get a simple location update from your device. Tramigo can be used on any mobile phone with easy SMS commands in plain English – or other language of your choice – and comes with full smartphone, tablet and PC software to control all functions of your device with just a few taps and clicks.

Understanding vehicle locations with TLD landmarks displayed on top is quicker without the need to zoom in and out of maps.

No Monthly Fees or Reliance on 3rd Parties

Be careful when signing up for service contracts or buying devices that include “Free service for 1st year”. Not only can the costs mount quickly, you’ll need to send your sensitive location data over the Internet to a third party and risk having your device becoming inoperative if the company ceases to exist or has problems with their server. Unless solid additional services such as medical rescue or vehicle recovery teams are offered, it’s likely that you’ll get the same and more from Tramigo, with no monthly fees or licence payments – your only cost is your mobile operator’s normal price for SMS or GPRS data sent.

Reliability and Full Aftermarket Support

Trusting your fleet of vehicles to a low grade tracker is like doing a paradrop without a backup chute – the effects of a tracker failing when it’s most needed can have severe consequences. You’ll sleep better knowing that by using only high grade components in our devices we’ve achieved the lowest defect rate in the industry. If still not convinced, ask your tracking manufacturer if they can match us:

  • Full 24-month warranty for all vehicle trackers, backed up by 24-hour customer support
  • Full offline functionality that lets you track even if there is an Internet problem
  • SMS backup communication when GPRS coverage isn’t good enough
  • Backup battery that allows your device to function even if vehicle power is cut

Free Fleet Management and Mobile Softwares

There is a big difference between receiving messages to a mobile device or PC and being able to easily manage vehicles from it. With our Tramigo M1 Move mobile software or the M1 Fleet Enterprise Server, you’ll be able to track, manage settings, view history and compile and export statistics from all your vehicles easily instead of just receiving one off location updates.

Easy to Understand Location Data That Beats Mapping Alone

Exclusive to Tramigo, TLD landmarks translate cryptic GPS coordinates into locations you can easily understand and communicate to others. Compared to a simple dot on a map TLD Landmarks allow instant understanding of locations without zooming in and out. Because TLD landmarks for your entire region are preloaded and sent by your Tramigo device over the GSM network, you won’t lose track of your fleet just because you lose connection. Find out more about the benefits of TLD.

IP Camera Surveillance

Network centric video surveillance is the transmission of video that utilizes open internet protocols (IP) for the purpose of recording video and/or video monitoring. IP cameras or network cameras stream live video via digital packets across an internet protocol network such as a LAN (Local Area Network) or the Internet. The benefit of network cameras is that they reside on IP networks; the video streams can then be accessed and stored remotely. This enables users to view and/or manage the IP cam using a standard web browser or video management software from different locations, giving businesses increased flexibility.

Why use access control?

Access control enables you to control who has access to your building.

Locks and keys also allow you to secure your building, but when keys are lost or stolen, the inconvenience and expense of changing locks and re-issuing keys can be considerable. Keys may also be copied, creating even more security risks.

All businesses, whether small, medium or large, have assets that need to be protected from theft. There is also the issue of protecting staff and their property. It is common in buildings that are secured by locks and keys for doors to be left unlocked all day. This opens up the possibility of opportunist theft and malicious damage.

Electronic access control provides the most efficient and convenient way of securing your building and assets. Installing an access control system means that you will never have to change a lock again. Tokens are issued to allow access through the controlled doors, and are easily barred from the system if they are lost, stolen or just not returned by someone who leaves your company. Barred tokens will not allow access through the controlled doors.

Once an access control system is installed, all doors controlled by the system will automatically lock when the door is closed. Anyone without a PIN or access token is unable to enter. If necessary, doors may be set to unlock during a designated time frame.

Access control can also offer flexible control over users’ access rights. For example, all staff can gain access through the main door of a building, but access to internal areas may be restricted to those who have a specific need to be there. Access may also be restricted by time, only granting access to particular users at certain times of day or night.

Access control offers a secure, convenient, flexible and cost effective way of controlling who has access to your building and when that access is allowed. Access control gives organization the security they need
