Night Surveillance Camera Capabilities for Commercial Properties

Posted by Amy Hite on October 20, 2017

Night surveillance camera systems have increased in volume over the years. Their capabilities have evolved since their introduction into the security market. Security cameras can be found at car dealerships, industrial plants, multifamily apartments, shopping centers, warehouses, and other commercial properties with outdoor assets.

Security Magazine discussed day and night surveillance camera capabilities and their shortcomings in an article.

Night surveillance capabilities are one of the biggest selling points for day and night security cameras. Outdoor security cameras can usually be installed easily by an industry professional. It typically does not require the purchase of extra equipment. There are also some outdoor security cameras that have a built-in internal IR filter or illumination ring. This component helps an outdoor security camera adapt to night and low-light conditions. Over time, these security camera systems can save operational expenses.

Industrial sites, warehouses, and other remote properties have a series of unique challenges for night surveillance camera systems. Security camera systems in less populated areas require battery-operated cameras. The surveillance cameras need day/night capabilities for the camera and illumination. Many night surveillance camera systems utilize alarm capabilities. Trained outdoor security monitors activate on-site speakers via a mobile network. Most of the remote security cameras and on-site speakers in remote locations are designed to be rugged and durable.

Although there are a lot of benefits to night surveillance camera systems, they are not perfect. There are some environmental factors that impact video security besides lighting. Two other environmental factors include background noise and vibration. These factors can be improved with low-light or thermal security cameras.

Outdoor night security cameras are typically installed at elevated heights to provide a wider field of view. This is optimal for zooming capabilities. Outdoor PTZ surveillance cameras have motorized zoom, focusing capabilities, and infrared lighting up to 150 feet.
