3 Reasons To Get PTZ Security Cameras

July 31st, 2019

Security cameras are one of the best ways to protect your property, whether it’s a home or a business. Not only do cameras capture all the important details, such as height, clothing, and other identifying characteristics, but they can also aid in the police investigation and are even admissible evidence in court. One way to improve your security camera protection is to use PTZ cameras instead, and here are three reasons why.

They Move

PTZ stands for “pan, zoom, tilt,” which means that these cameras, once affixed, are still capable of moving up, down, left, right and they can zoom in for a closer look. With a human operator, this means you can see much more, and even on automatic, the camera can move by itself according to the parameters you set. This provides much more flexibility for how to use the camera.

The Have A Greater Field Of View

Because PTZ cameras can move, this affords them a larger field of view than a stationary, fixed camera. If you have an area that you’d prefer to see more of during a certain time of day, the camera can be adjusted to that, without needing to go to the camera itself and alter its position. 

They Can Track Motion

Today’s PTZ cameras don’t just operate manually. Motion sensors can be paired with PTZ cameras so that if something moves into sensor range, the camera automatically moves to get a better look. It means that when a car theft at a parking lot takes place, for example, the camera can adjust to put the thieves front and center in the field of view, rather than off to the edge, just out of frame, unable to get meaningful details.
