By Lens Angle
Security Cameras by Lens Angle
We Have You Covered at Every Angle
Often, one size does not fit all. Sometimes it is important to cover a broad wide area, and other times you may need to focus on a particular area of interest or even zoom in on a license plate. No matter what the viewing angle, we have the most appropriate solution for you. Our wide selection of CCTV cameras by lens angle includes fixed lens cameras, varifocal adjustable zoom lens cameras, and controllable PTZ cameras. Not sure what camera is best for you? Call us Monday to Friday at (888) 653-2288 for great advice on the camera or system that will be best for your specific needs.
When monitoring your home or business, most people use wide-angle CCTV lens cameras. Wide-angle cameras cover the maximum areas such as a room or wide areas outside a business or home. All of our fixed wide-angle security cameras can be used indoors or outdoors. Our wide-angle cameras come in two different lens sizes - 2.8mm and 3.6mm. The smaller the number, the wider the lens. A 3.6mm CCTV camera lens has approx. 90 ° angle of view, while a 2.8mm CCTV camera lens has approx. 105 ° angle of view.
You cannot cover every single angle with a fixed wide lens camera. Sometimes you need to focus on objects that are further away. Our adjustable "varifocal" cameras are more suitable than wide-angle cameras in certain applications. For example, if you are mounting a camera 50 feet away and want to get close-ups and analytics of people coming through a doorway, an adjustable camera would be preferable.
Pan Tilt Zoom cameras give you the most flexibility when focusing on areas and objects. Sometimes one Pan Tilt Zoom CCTV camera with a wide lens angle can take the place of several cameras. Control our PTZ cameras with our free phone app or free PC software. Move the CCTV lens up, down, left, right, and zoom in and out. Our Pan Tilt Zoom cameras can easily be controlled or programmed to do automatic patterns and tours.
