About PTZ Cameras

PTZ Camera in Bloomfield & Cedarvale, NM

Pan-tilt-zoom or PTZ cameras can be used to provide surveillance over much larger areas than conventional security cameras. PTZ cameras consist of a compact, all-in-one package that contains super high-resolution cameras outfitted with powerful motorized zoom lenses.

These motors can adjust the camera’s aim and zoom, tilt in a 180-degree range, and reposition a full 360 degrees in the blink of an eye! This allows video capture in great detail, including facial features and license plate numbers.

You can find PTZ cameras in many commercial, institutional, industrial, and residential locations -- whether it’s a retail storefront, parking garage, a house of worship, sporting venue, apartment building, or construction site. As video security continues to become more common, many decision-makers, and property or business owners, have discovered how PTZs can provide additional layers of security, as well as other applications.

Features of PTZ Cameras

Features of PTZ Cameras

A combination of features enables PTZ cameras to cover the surveillance area typically required by as many as four traditional security-style cameras. Some of those features are:

  • User-controlled – Manual operation by the user via a desktop joystick.
  • Software controlled – The operating system allows the user to set up, control, and view PTZ cameras from a laptop, iPad/iPhone, Android device, or other smartphone.
  • Remote Controlled – The cameras can be operated from remote locations over the internet or by smartphone with the remote access feature of a DVR.
  • Automatic Tours – Programmable presets allow cameras to automatically conduct surveillance—panning, tilting, and zooming to pre-determined viewing locations for preset time periods.
  • Low Light – This feature provides a clear picture in almost no light. The light level can be adjusted as low as 0.002 LUX, the same as a moonless clear night.
  • Night Vision – For durations where there is no light, long-range night vision PTZ cameras have an infrared feature that produces clear black and white video in total darkness.
