What Is The Difference In CCTV Mega Pixels?

compare cameras2

Traditional analogue CCTV Security Cameras resolution is rated 650TVL. In digital terms that is equivalent to only half a MP. With commercial grade IP CCTV Security Cameras, you can get 1MP, 2MP, 4MP, 5MP, 6MP, 8MP, and 12MP. Here is a image showing the difference between Analogue, CVI and a high MP IP security camera

Is Number Plate Recognition Important?


From our tests of a 8MP security camera using a 12mm lens can see a number plates from about 35 metres. So given that information we have the following MegaPixel prediction for reading number plates, assuming a 12mm lens.

  • 12MP security camera - about 50 metres.
  • 8MP security camera - about 35 metres.
  • 6MP security camera - about 28 metres.
  • 5MP security camera - about 21 meters.
  • 4MP security camera - about 16 metres.
  • 2MP security camera - about 8 metres.
  • 1MP security camera - about 4 metres.

Given these are day time tests, at night time we expect it's hard to read at that range, without external significant IR illuminators.

If you just need a security camera to see number plates, then we need to select a suitable CCTV security camera for your target area.  If your objective is to automatically recognise a number plates, and maybe match it against a database for white and black list access control. Then we can certainly assist in that aswell.


Hidden CCTV Camera Projects


We often install HD Covert Spy Cameras and recorders although this technology is constantly evolving. Modern Spy cameras can be found in just about any device including Smoke Detectors, AC/DC Power Adapters, LED Light bulbs, Clocks, Pens, Car Keys, PC Speakers, Sunglasses, Bags, a Book even our new Photo Frame Camera with up to 2 years battery standby. Spy pinhole cameras are very difficult to detect and are powered by a rechargeable lithium long term battery or mains powered. Some hidden cameras have a recording duration of just a few hours although the more advanced pinhole cameras can remain in standby motion detection mode for days, weeks, months or years. Spy cameras now have incredible 1080P HD quality motion activated or constant video and audio recording auto saved to a concealed internal micro SD memory card. SD memory cards are Class 10 and can be up to 128GB. Recording quality is as good if not better than a Go Pro. The latest advance is in spy cam technology is built in WiFi. That's right if the camera is in a WiFi zone the authorised user may remotely live view and listen in from any mobile phone, PC or Mac from anywhere in the world. Users can remotely playback SD card motion activated recordings without the need to touch the camera. Suspect that you may be watched or recorded? We also offers a range of Counter or Anti Surveillance Spy Camera and Bug Detectors designed to track and trace pinhole cameras, WiFi or wireless transmission, 3G and audio related devices.


Ubiquity Link Building To Building


For large distance installations, trenching is risky, so we recommend ubiquity links instead. For example. Building 1, might have 8x wired Security Cameras, and building 2 might have 16x wired Security Cameras. So we simply link the buildings with one ubiquity link. We generally use 900MHz or 5GHz wireless transceivers, that can go up to 15km line of sight. For most cases we can use 5GHz. However if we need the wireless signal to go around corners, over a mountain, or penetration objects, buildings and/or dense foliage, we would use 900MHz.

Do You Need Better Night Vision?

camera night vision1

Whilst our cameras have IR in built for night vision, rated to 25m or 50m. However, it's no where near the best. Improving night vision? consider an external IR illuminator, which is like a floodlight for CCTV that you can't see. They are 12V and do not need to be placed near the camera. Elsewhere is sometimes better. Here is an example of what you can expect when moving from a camera with 50m rated built-in IR, to a 150m rated 60° field of view external IR illuminator, where the edge of the pool fence is about 30m from the camera.

PIR & Radar For Accurate Motion Detection


Radar Motion Detector


Reliable motion detection gives confidence to use instant notification via email, mobile phone push notification and or have a speaker say something to the intruder. Most security camera systems support motion detection via vision. However using vision only is known to be unreliable. Vision based motion detection can be triggered via rain, insects, moving cloud shadows.

For more reliable motion detection, you need to add more sensors. Some options are PIR and radar sensors. Both PIR and radar have a 120° field of view. PIR is cost-effective, however only 12-15 metres range, and not the best for outside and sunlight. Radar allows up to 50 metres, works in bad weather such as rain or snow, and can track target position and velocity, allowing target tracking via PTZ cameras.


How Facial Recognition works

We are experienced with installation of standard security camera systems for your home, office, warehouse. We even offer more complex CCTV Camera solutions which may require features such as:

  • People counting
  • Face recognition
  • Automatic number plate recognition, also known as Licence plate recognition
  • Production line object recognition
  • People tracking
  • Virtual Trip Wire Detection

Solar for Remote CCTV Camera Projects


This camera is part of a multi camera kit where one of the protected zones has no power. Solar power is an option for totally wireless CCTV cameras. For remote security camera installations where power is not available. We can use batteries and/or solar. It is a solution but not a cheap. To give you an idea, for one security video camera and one ubiquity link to run day and night will require about 250W plus solar panel (in most areas of East Coast Australia), batteries, solar charger, etc, and will cost about $2800 in materials, not including the security camera, ubiquity link, or galvanised pole.

Stand Alone 3/4G Solar CCTV Camera Projects

3:4G Solar Cam

Our non hidden stand alone outdoor 3/4G solar security cameras are an amazing new security camera system. Our solar camera can be mounted anywhere within a mobile phone wireless network. If onsite WiFi is available, the same solar camera system is available with an optional WiFi module rather than 3/4G. 3/4G solar camera will record any motion detected then email authorised users by way of a motion email or mobile phone push alert. The LED motion triggered flood light and warning speaker allows the camera to record motion in HD colour rather than por resolution B/W Infra Red. The motion activated LED flood light and speaker is also a massive intruder deterrent. Live view one or multi cameras from any web enabled device from anywhere in the world. No software needed with easy DIY installation or we can do it for you. Ideal for Building & Construction Sites, Mine Sites, Councils, Waterways, Dams, Properties and so much more.
