Exploring the Features of Autotracking PTZ Camera
The field of video surveillance is vast and the benefits it offers are far too many. It's
impossible to live in a world without video surveillance especially when we are
perpetually at risk - from terror attacks, thefts and malice. Luckily, we have the PTZ
camera that does way more than merely capturing video footage. Read on to know
how the PTZ camera, especially the autotracking one, protects us and our
Know your options
There is a vast range of cameras you may want to consider to insulate your world
from hazardous situations. Explosion proof cameras, fibre enabled cameras, PTZ or
the pan, tilt and zoom cameras, etc. offer myriad features to users. Most high-end
cameras can be auto programmed too, which means, they can cover different areas
such as the lobby, gate, living room, conference rooms, etc depending on where you
use them and what you wish to capture. The camera will capture at regular intervals
as programmed and help operators track down whoever they are looking for. If the
camera is in the live monitoring mode, the operator can control the situation from a
remote location. The live monitoring feature is a great way of keeping an eye on
places and act in real time in case of emergencies.
Day and night surveillance
If you are looking for day and night surveillance, you must consider investing in an
autotracking PTZ camera. The pan, tilt and zoom feature gives it an edge over other
stationery cameras and monitors a huge area. The autotracking option comes in
handy for outdoor settings. This camera comes with a motion detection option that
enables users to track the movement of a person. The camera can follow the person
and capture minute details. This feature is extremely helpful especially if you are
looking for a particular person or wish to know what he's up to. Suspicious activity
can immediately be traced and a remedial action can be taken to prevent mishaps.
Sophistication and technology enable autotracking cameras to work in harsh
conditions and poor visibility areas.
The downside is that you are required to bear an additional cost for the joystick and
night vision capability. A decent version of the autotracking camera can zoom up to
36 times and is a great option for night surveillance. The autotracking feature
enables users to track the movement and take charge of the situation from
wherever they are. If the autotracking feature is so important to you, make sure that
you invest in a good camera. The cheaper versions may not be able to track motion
if the person to be monitored is constantly on the move.
The PTZ camera is a great option to invest in, but not before you carefully weigh its
pros and cons. Most PTZ cameras are relatively larger than the regular surveillance
cameras we see. Also, their heavy reliance on power necessitates a dedicated
power source. Understand the features carefully and only then choose a camera for
your security needs.
