IP Pan, Tilt & Zoom cameras, or PTZ’s, provide the ability to remotely control the camera’s movement, allowing operators to pan, tilt, and zoom capturing the desired view. This flexibility enables monitoring of large areas or tracking moving objects without the need for multiple fixed cameras.
Traditionally, PTZ cameras are used in locations where they can be manned by security personnel. For example, in retail applications, to follow a potential thief as they attempt to steal merchandise. Or, to protect an exterior perimeter by monitoring a far-off fence line with greater detail. Additionally, these security cameras are usually purchased with an X, Y & Z axis controller to make moving and zooming of the camera fast and easy.
With today’s modern technology IP Pan, Tilt, Zoom cameras also offer AI or Advanced Analytics. AI enables the user to receive detailed information about a wide variety of criteria such as:
- cross line detection
- intrusion detection
- stationary object alert
- pedestrian detection
- face detection
- cross counting,
- and some models even have object tracking.
Object tracking can eliminate the need for the PTZ cameras to be manned. Once a person or vehicle is identified, the PTZ camera tracks the object and can provide comprehensive surveillance of the area by turning on lights or sounding an audio message warning the would-be perpetrators to leave the location immediately.
IP PTZ cameras are available in both dome and turret camera styles and can have a night vision range of well over 450 feet. PTZ’s also come in a wide variety of lens configurations to accommodate almost every demand or environment, including hot weather climates like Tampa, St. Pete and surrounding areas.
