Does My Business Need Specialised Commercial Surveillance Cameras?

Date: 11 April 2022

Commercial surveillance cameras secure and defend your business from burglars. However, a standard system won't work for everyone! To get the most from your CCTV system, you may need 'special requirements' to suit your security goals.

With your business in mind, consider how special camera features can benefit you as we explore the most common range of specialist cameras.


The what and why of special camera features

Special camera features offer added value. For instance, a 360° camera could save you buying 4 cameras to catch the same footage. A professional will be able to go over the full list of available special features, so you get a system tailored to your needs! If you have anything in mind – write it down!

Common features that could benefit you!

Some commercial surveillance cameras can see in the dark, whilst others are built to resist vandalisation. Here are some of the more common features that most business owners are curious about:

360° camera

Easily captures footage of large, open areas. Ideal for outside attractions, large warehouses and shopping centres.

Night vision (Infrared)

So your cameras can record in the dark – useful if your premises aren’t lit during the hours of darkness or you want to record footage during the night.

Auto Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)

The reflection from number plates usually blinds CCTV cameras, and causes a bright white glare in the footage. ANPR cameras are designed to focus on number plates so you can clearly identify vehicles in and around your premises.

Is it necessary for my business?

If you’re looking for a run-of-the-mill CCTV system to keep robbers away and protect your assets, you may want to consider an Infrared system.

It will deter burglars from targeting your business and catch them on camera if they do – even in the dark.

On the other hand, if you own a large warehouse and monitor the loading bay, Number Plate Recognition may be vital – you might need to know the exact times certain vehicles enter and exit your premises.

So, how many of those special CCTV features did you know about?
