The quality of the cameras is the MOST IMPORTANT
item in any Surveillance System!!
You can buy the best Surveillance System available,
but if you install low quality cameras the
System will give you poor quality images!!
A surveillance system is only as good as its
eyes. So when you install a surveillance system why
not get the best images you can.
Points to look at for image quality:
- Lines of resolution; minimum of 480 lines,
for recognition quality images.
600 Lines is better!
- Auto-iris lens; will keep the
sensor from burning out after a few months in
the sun. (Outdoors)
- Area lighting; is there enough light or do you need IR lighting for
- WDR (wide dynamic range) cameras; to see
detail with a brightly lit background.
- High frame rate (if IP camera).
The FBI has found that the images captured by most
surveillance systems are of no use in identifying a
person; normally the problem is that the cameras are not
focused, are blocked, or are of
such poor quality you can not see a clear face in
(only a blur). If you want to learn more about camera
quality, try this link to a
FBI video on CCTV quality.

Axis Megapixel IP
cameras will give you the best image you can get!!
- Their digital technology provides much
greater resolution than traditional analog
cameras—up to 5 megapixels compared to the scant
maximum of about 0.4 megapixels you get from
- They cover a larger area and provide
superior digital zoom capabilities.
- They provide rich detail (such as facial
features or the numbers on a license plate)
rather than blurry, hard-to-read images. Their
ability to read license plates makes IP network
cameras ideal in parking lots and gas stations
where they can capture plate information on
every vehicle that enters and exits, providing
an excellent ID for security.
