There are many different types of CCTV systems available, these include...

Wired CCTV Cameras

A wired CCTV camera includes a wire which is linked directly from the camera to the monitor, making this the most popular and inexpensive sort of camera. The disadvantage is that it could be difficult to install with the amount of wiring involved. 

Wireless CCTV Cameras

In this type of setup, the camera transfers photos via analogue or digital technology to your computer, tablet, or cell phone. Many smart security cameras are connected to an app that allows you to keep an eye on your property while you're away. The quality of digital cameras is often better, but they are also more expensive.

IP CCTV System

These are cameras that broadcast photos to your computer's router over your network or internet portal (IP), allowing you to see the footage from anywhere in the world.

Bullet CCTV Cameras

Bullet CCTV cameras have a distinctive, very noticeable design. They have a cylindrical form and have the ability to view longer distances. Bullet cameras are most typically used outside, thus their casings are water, dust, and dirt resistant.

Dome CCTV Cameras

These types of cameras are discreet and because of their dome-shaped casing, it can be difficult to see which direction the camera is pointing towards, making it perfect to detect any thieves or vandals who are approaching from various directions.
