Camera Types:

Night Vision

Night vision cameras provide night-time illumination of any area in crystal clear infrared video. No matter how dark it is, our cameras will be able to detect, illuminate, and help prevent anything untoward. What makes a night vision camera unique is how it reacts to changing light conditions and utilizes available light. Like traditional surveillance cameras, night vision cameras provide crisp color video during daytime light. However, the difference between traditional security cameras and night vision cameras is very evident at night. When there isn't enough available light to produce quality footage, the night vision camera automatically changes from a color camera to an infrared black and white camera. This enables the night vision camera to produce crisp images and fine detail in any lighting condition - even in complete darkness! These cameras can be used outdoor or indoors (for spaces that are simply dim or dark) and work just as effectively in either case. Night vision is a feature that can be added to almost any camera type - PTZ, Long Range, Vandal Proof, Hidden, you name it. Available with several types of lenses and in a range of resolution clarity, these cameras have you covered, even when you can’t see.

Pan Tilt Zoom

Pan Tilt Zoom cameras are designed to cover larger areas than a standard unmoving camera. They can sweep back and forth across a building, yard or open space, and they can zoom in on a particular area of interest. The tilt function allows the camera to sweep vertically, moving the field of vision up and down. Pre-programmed tours can be easily customized to cover certain points of interest, like a security guard making rounds to ensure a property is secure. The camera smoothly pans to areas of interest, tilts to achieve the best angle, zooms in and out of particular scenes, and then returns back to its default position. If security personnel notice something strange in the camera's view, like a person or a vehicle, they can take control away from its pre-programmed tour to follow the suspect. Because the cameras are so flexible they are often the most practical option for security installations. Each camera can be completely controlled or programmed with ease by a single user, and combined in any number into a single system. Pairing PTZ cameras with night vision, long range lenses, or any other of our wide array of features is always a good investment, and only adds to their capability and functionality.

Outdoor Cameras

Outdoor cameras are generally equipped with a few essential features. The first is night vision, which makes every individual outdoor cameras effective 24 hours a day. Another is PTZ capability, which enables the camera to sweep and survey a much larger area (with a generally high depth of field) without having to use multiple cameras, and is a good choice for the wide open outdoors. Vandal proof security cameras are an important consideration when you’re looking at outdoor features, as they keep the cameras viable for years and years. Depending on where you need to survey, you also want to consider waterproof cameras. Unless you’ll be using your cameras in a very peculiar outdoor location where it never rains or snows and the wind is calm and gentle, weatherproofing is an essential investment. Weatherproofing should include protection from water, wind, storms, you name it. Anything that mother nature can throw at a security camera she very likely will, and you need to be prepared. These are just a few of the exciting features you can add, but they’re some of the most essential.

HD-SDI Cameras

If you want to have the best image quality possible from your video surveillance system, HD-SDI cameras are the best choice money can currently buy. HD-SDI cameras transmit uncompressed 1080P video footage. This footage is then compressed into the H.264 format for storage and play back at a later time. When you choose to pay back recorded video from HD-SDI Systems the video is decompressed to allow viewing in full 1080P High Definition. This footage is on the same level of quality that you see on HD television channels or Blu-Ray movies - up to six times higher resolution than standard definition video cameras. The only downside to HD-SDI cameras is storage space. Since the footage is of a much higher resolution than standard cameras, you will need a lot more space on your DVR for comparable lengths of footage. We generally recommend a 2TB or 3TB hard drive as a starting point for most systems. While you can use our DVR Storage Calculator to get a rough estimate of hard drive space needed, we are happy to help you determine exactly what you need.

Long Range Cameras

What’s in a name? When it comes to long range cameras, the name pretty much sums it up. Equipped with special lenses that provide a high depth of field, long range surveillance cameras can do the job from great distances. They offer you peace of mind knowing that you can mount your cameras in a stealthy location of your choice and still have the range to survey important areas. This can be the difference between a criminal seeing your cameras beforehand and attempting to destroy/disable them, and them going unnoticed and bringing you the critical footage you need. Having this longer-range detection generally means that fewer cameras are needed, helping lower your initial costs. If you have a very large area you need to survey, or if you want your security camera set up to be as far away and unobtrusive as possible, these are the right cameras for you. Sending video signal over long distances requires more dedicated hardware.

Dome Cameras

Dome Cameras, like many of the machines we make right here at EZWatch, are a popular choice for our roster of clients and new customers. The biggest reason for their popularity is their toughness. As we like to say, they can really take a beating! With dome cameras you won’t have to worry about vandals destroying your security operation, and you can be assured that any attempt to disable your cameras before a crime takes place will be thwarted. In addition, the dome cameras are not limiting in terms of features. Domed cameras can come equipped with PTZ, night vision, and long range capabilities. Many of the ones we offer are also vandal proof or tamper proof to keep potential thieves at bay!

License Plate Recognition

License plate security cameras are a wonderful way of keeping your parking lots safe and secure. Technological advancements have made it possible for cameras and systems like these to identify the license plate number of every car that enters and exists in a defined area. That means your system will have an exact idea of who’s in and who’s out, as well as a great way to catch thieves. For lower risk environments that have few entrances/exits, such as parking garages and gated communities, a License Plate Camera should be mounted near the entrance and can be used to supplement other safety policies. In environments where theft is likely to occur, such as gas stations, convenience stores, or warehouses, a license plate camera can be used in conjunction with security cameras to identify the make, model, and color of the vehicle. In high security areas, license plate cameras can support record keeping detail by being used in conjunction with Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) software. The software can be pre-populated with a list of approved license plate numbers and cause an alarm condition if a vehicle enters an area with an non-approved license plate. Also built in to these cameras is the ability to see through extreme weather and unfavorable elements - meaning they’ll work even in bad conditions.

Spy and Hidden Cameras

When people know they are being monitored, they are more likely to behave as expected. To find out what is really happening behind the scenes, strategically placed Spy cameras give home and business owners full access to employee behavior and provide peace of mind while away. Known as covert cameras, nanny cameras, spy cameras, and hidden cameras, these unseen cameras can be placed in unexpected places so you can monitor the unfiltered behavior of their employees, caretakers, or contractors. Determining which type of cameras you need depends on the level of discretion you desire and the other types of security equipment installed.

IP Cameras

IP cameras are network cameras that are used primarily to send video and audio over an IP network such as a local area network (LAN) or over the Internet. IP cameras enable live viewing and/or recording either continuously, at scheduled time, on request or when triggered by an event. IP technology allows these cameras to transmit footage wirelessly to a central DVR point where the video can be saved locally and/or at a remote location. In traditional security installations, coaxial cable is used to run the analog camera from the point of installation to the DVR. If the cameras are installed within a few hundred feet of the DVR, running the wire and minimizing the amount exposed cable isn’t too difficult of a task. However, if the camera is more than 750 ft away, in a warehouse or parking area for example, the video begins to degrade losing clarity and definition. The further the analog signal travels, the more detail it will lose along the way. An IP Camera resolves this issue by processing the images on the camera and transmitting digital signal instead of analog. We offer a wide variety of IP cameras ranging from basic models to high end HD-IP models.

Lens Types

EZWatch has both fixed and vari-focal lenses available in our cameras. Vari-focal lenses offer a more flexible and adaptable camera, able to literally focus at different depths of fields, to zoom and to reverse zoom. Fixed lenses are for cameras surveying a narrowly defined space - in other words, cameras that never need to change their field of vision to attain a sharper image or a more complete picture.

Resolution Lines & Color:

At EZWatch we offer our exceptional range of cameras in a variety of “lines” of resolution. The more “lines” a camera has, the sharper and clearer the video taken by that camera will be.

Our cameras are offered in lines as high as 1080 and as low as 330 (which is generally a rating for small hidden cameras and nanny cams). High resolution cameras, like our HD-SDI cameras, are essential to the safe and secure management of many homes, businesses, and public places, and EZWatch has been sure to offer the very best. When you’re browsing for a camera on this page (or on any other) you can narrow and define your search by selecting the line resolution you’d like to have with your camera, visible on the left side of the page.

EZWatch cameras record in black and white, color, or both (color during the day and black and white at night, for instance). The type of color you choose is up to you, but color video is good for identification purposes - when you can see not only the type of clothes but the color of the clothes (or hair or shoes or anything else) on whomever is being recorded, they’re easier to identify.
