The cctv camera and monitor introduction from Christy
systems (closed circuit television) are one of the most effective means
of securing your home or business. Basic cctv
systems consist of a cctv camera connected
directly to a cctv monitor. More complex systems
can monitor the camera through switchers, time lapse recorders and even
over the phone line. cctv switchers allow multiple cctv cameras to be connected to one monitor by switching between
cameras at preset time intervals or by splitting the screen to display
more than one camera’s picture on the screen.
A time lapse recorder operates much like your home
VCR except that the cctv
picture is recirded at a very slow speed so
as to record up to 24 hours on one tape.
The latest home cctv
security systems allow you to call the system, and, with a monitor connect
to the telephone line through special equipment, you can view and control
the cctv cameras remotely.
Before you begin to specify your
system, make a list of your objectives and concerns. A cctv
system professional can then make the best recommendation to meet
your needs. These systems should be used as part of a complete carefully
planned security solution.
See the many
types of cctv
systems available at Christy Industries.
The starting point for any system must be the camera. The camera
creates the picture that will be transmitted to the control position.
cameras are available in various shapes, sizes and lens configurations.
Models of cameras are designed to be used outdoors, use various stationary
or moving mounts and can be concealed in everyday items such as clocks
or teddy bears. Specification of the right cctv
camera for a project is not always the easiest of processes. You should
seek professional advice.
The picture created by the cctv
camera needs to be reproduced at the control position. A cctv monitor is virtually the same as a television receiver
except that it does not have the channel tuner.
cctv is not difficult
to install. Christy Industries would be happy to provide you with installation
tips and instructions. Or you can take an excellent online course.
