Canon Security Camera Monitoring for Video Surveillance

Posted by Amy Hite on January 2, 2016

Canon security cameras are a popular commercial video camera manufacturer. They show up 2,320,000 times in Google search results.

Canon security cameras can be a part of an effective security solution. Numerous studies (1, 2) show that video surveillance systems can reduce crime with the greatest effect when the cameras are watched live, such as by UCIT Online’s live video surveillance service.

About Canon

Canon U.S.A., Inc is a leading provider and manufacturer for consumer solutions, business-to-business solutions, and industrial solutions. Canon's product portfolio includes photography cameras, surveillance cameras, office solutions, home solutions, network video solutions, and a range of healthcare technologies, and industrial products. The Canon U.S.A. office was opened in New York City, New York in 1955. In 1969, Canon released the p10X20B zoom lens for television cameras. This was their introduction into the U.S. television broadcast market.

Security Camera Technology

IP (Internet) security cameras provide superior technology to older analog CCTV cameras that use coaxial cable. IP video cameras provide a higher resolution and a wider and deeper viewing field compared to CCTV cameras. The advanced digital technology of IP cameras enables excellent vision at high and low light levels during both daytime and nighttime.

Security cameras for commercial use are specially designed for high quality video that can watch and track people, vehicles, and their movement that may be far away and important details that may be small in size. Commercial cameras feature megapixel video resolution with superior lenses and imaging sensors. In addition to cameras, an effective video surveillance system typically includes a network video recorder (NVR) for video storage, lighting for superior night video, Internet access, network cable, wireless equipment, and affiliated system design, equipment, software, installation, setup, and training.

Security Camera Compatibility

UCIT Online’s live video surveillance service can watch most Canon ONVIF-compatible IP security cameras, as well as many IP and analog cameras from other manufacturers.

Canon manufactures the Canon VB-H43 PTZ, the Canon VB-H760VE Bullet Camera, and the Canon VB-H610VE Full HD Vandal Resistant Fixed Dome IP Security Camera.

Low Cost Solution

Live video surveillance is a part of a low-cost Canon camera solution. Proactive video monitoring can generate significant savings by helping to reduce break-ins, damage, and theft. More importantly live monitoring can actually increase revenues and property value. Canon cameras with live speakers can deter unwanted visitors from trespassers to criminals. Customers tell us they’ve been able to both increase occupancy and raise rents.

If you have security guards doing live video monitoring or otherwise on-site, you know how expensive they can be. Pay typically starts at $20 per hour. Plus there can be costs for uniforms, benefits, golf carts, guard shacks, office space, and much more. UCIT Online’s live surveillance can provide live surveillance at a cost of up to 80% off the price of a security guard.

UCIT Online can watch a full spectrum of IP and analog security camera models.

  • Full body cameras. Full body security cameras are also referred to as box surveillance cameras. They are commonly found outdoors. The camera itself is protected inside a box casing. Full body surveillance cameras can be placed on poles, columns, walls, and ceilings.
  • Dome surveillance cameras. Indoor and outdoor dome security cameras are typically placed on the ceiling and often in parking garages.

Outdoor PTZ security cameras can see long distances, including out to entrances and fences, along entire buildings, across parking lots and fields, and to other buildings.
