Pan Tilt Zoom Security Cameras
In some cases, regular cameras simply will not give you the full amount of coverage. You may need the versatility of a camera that can be adjusted quickly, remote change of direction or zoom, or maybe its the ability to lock on and follow a moving object that shouldn’t be in an area.
In each case, there is only one choice: PTZ, or Pan/Tilt/Zoom. These cameras have the ability to spin and angle up and down with their motorized interior mount, as well as zoom in and out and auto-focus with their motorized variable focus lens.
Total control is the ticket when you install a PTZ camera.
Pan Tilt Cameras, also called PTZ cameras, are capable of being controlled remotely. In their most basic configuration the camera can be made to move left/right (Pan) and up/down (Tilt). More advanced models can also zoom in and out (Zoom). Most DVRs are capable of accepting inputs from a PTZ camera and allowing control of the camera from the DVR or remotely via the DVR's client software.
