There are various types of CCTV cameras that have been designed and made specifically for monitoring using special methods. In short, CCTV is capable of capturing and producing images by utilizing different technologies.

– Thermal CCTV Camera

This type of camera is designed and made specifically to be able to capture and produce images based on the level of heat produced by the object being monitored and does not require a light source at all. Thermal cameras have little interference because the camera is not affected by light (backlight, shadow, dark, fog) and a thermal camera is very suitable for monitoring the movement of objects that emit heat.

– Infra Red CCTV Camera

Infrared cameras are used for nighttime surveillance in low-light conditions. Infrared cameras/night cameras are designed and made specifically to produce images by capturing infrared light waves (invisible light) with very low energy, which means that even though there is little camera light this can still produce images clearly. This type of camera is equipped with infrared LED lights as an infrared light source to illuminate objects in dark conditions. with an IR (Infra Red) LED that is very small and small power is enough to provide clear night vision to CCTV infrared (Infra Red CCTV) cameras. The light generated from the LED lights on the camera is not visible to human vision and the image produced by the camera IR type is monochrome (black and white).

– Day and Night CCTV Camera

If you want to use a CCTV camera that can be used by day and night, then the CCTV Day and Night Camera (Hybrid) can be your best choice, because this type of camera is equipped with ICR technology (IR CUT Filter) where when the camera is in low condition the camera will automatically enter to night vision mode by activating the infrared LED light that has been included on the CCTV camera to see in the dark. For now, the Day and Night CCTV Camera (Hybrid) camera is a common camera on the market, so you don’t have to bother to buy a special night camera, only me the quality of the night mode image depends on the camera price.
