Spoiled for choice

CCTV Handbook 2015 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Hi-Tech Security Solutions delivers its Camera Selection Guide and DVR/NVR Round-Up to give you some insight into the products available today.

Despite the variety of issues one has to consider when implementing a surveillance solution – simply look at the range of articles in this year’s CCTV Handbook to see a few – at the end of the day you need to decide on a camera, and unless you have serious storage requirements, a digital video recorder (DVR) or network video recorder (NVR).

Hi-Tech Security Solutions therefore runs its Camera Selection Guide and DVR/NVR Round-Up in every CCTV Handbook to make the choice of what cameras you should be looking at a bit easier. Of course, we can’t list all the specifications and benefits of each camera or recording solution, there is simply not enough space. Nevertheless, in the following sections you will see a brief guide to what is available and the basic specifications of each product. We naturally include the contact details with each to allow potential buyers to contact the relevant suppliers if they want to find out more.

As can be expected, many suppliers sent us far more than we could fit in for each product so we had to trim most of the entries. We have tried to keep the most important information that will help in buying decisions in each entry, in an easy-to-read format.

If you have suggestions for a better format or layout for the next camera guide or DVR/NVR Round-Up, please let us know. Is there a particular feature or technical specification you think we’re missing? Should we keep it short and simply list the specifications of each product? It’s only with feedback from our readers that we can be sure we’re providing the right subset of information in the right format.

In the meantime, if you’re a surveillance user or manager, you will find a broad selection of products at your fingertips in the two guides. The guides will also be put online, allowing you to search by product, supplier or category (IP, analogue etc.) whenever your next buying decision has to be made.
