Brands:
There are many brands of equipment out there and it is important to know what you are buying before making a purchase. A camera system is a very useful tool when it comes to home or business security. However if the system is of low quality and unreliable, it is highly likely that the system will not be working properly when you need it the most. At Maxam Tech Solutions, Inc. we only use the highest of quality equipment by reputable manufacturers such as Geovision, Hikvision, and AXIS.

Digital vs Analog:
There many different things to consider when planning out a new camera system installation. The first of which is if you want to go with an analog or digital system. Digital systems are more expensive than the traditional analog systems and provide a much greater quality image. Analog systems are generally much less expensive than digital and work great for small installations. It is important to make this decision now as true digital systems use standard CAT5e cabling with RJ45 connectors whereas the analog systems use RJ59 cabling.

Cameras:
There are many types and styles of cameras on the market today. Within all those many different cameras there are some important things to consider when choosing the best solution.

  • The resolution of a camera describes the quality of the image. For analog systems cameras generally use the term “lines” to describe the resolution. The greater the “lines” a camera has the better quality image you will receive on the DVR. Now digital systems are a different ballgame. Digital systems use Megapixels to describe the resolution of the camera. Even the lowest 1MP camera has a much greater quality than a standard analog camera.
  • The night viewing capability is another important aspect to consider. The LUX specification describes the cameras ability to see in low light conditions. The lower the LUX the better the camera will be able to see with little light. Some cameras have built in infrared IR. This determines if the camera is able to provide images in total darkness.
  • The lens type is how the camera sees and is critical to getting the target area properly covered. There are both fixed and adjustable lenses and they are measured using “mm”. The larger the number, the closer the camera will look to the targeted area.

With all these choices it is important to chose a system that fits with the intended use and environment for which it will be installed. At Maxam Tech we can customize a solution that will meet your needs now and into the future.
