Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) System may be used for a variety of video monitoring applications. Surveillance for security purposes, room monitoring or event viewing, are more common applications.
Home applications may consist of a front door camera which allows viewing a front door caller before opening a door. The live video could be viewed on a dedicated monitor or a TV channel when the door bell rings.
A more complete Security CCTV System may include multiple cameras viewing different locations of the yard. A video IP server can be added along with an “always on” ISP to allow viewing cameras at your home from the office.
CCTV System options include built-in IR flooding for night vision and cameras offer auto iris control for improved picture contrast and lens sizes chosen for field of view selection. Adding an IP based DVR allows recording camera action, or remote access from the office to view cameras live.
