What are the different types of commercial CCTV camera systems?

There are a number of different types of CCTV camera systems available for use for industrial and commercial properties. Each of these will work in a slightly different way and offer different benefits for your security. The different types of CCTV camera system include:

  • Wired cameras- this type of CCTV camera is wired into the mains and is usually used for large spaces like warehouses and large retail spaces. This CCTV system involves connecting a camera directly to a recorder, which is then connected to a router. The router transmits the video signal to its required destination, internally or externally.
  • Wireless cameras- wireless CCTV camera systems are most commonly used in smaller business premises. The cameras transmit video signals over radio bands to a receiver with an inbuilt hard drive. Some receivers will also upload directly to the cloud. By using monitors connected to the receiver, live feeds can be displayed.
  • IP cameras- IP stands for Internet protocol and such IP cameras receive and transmit video data over a network or the internet, or both. This can be used on a wired or wireless system.
