CCTV Camera 101

Security is a no-question necessity. We don’t need to think about it. It is the only thing that makes us safe. It avoids us from getting hurt and being abducted or robbed. There are a lot of employees that their job is to secure. For instance, a security guard that secures buildings, businesses, and even houses. It’s not just people who can do it. Even things can help protect us from harm. Just like CCTV camera systems.

Closed-circuit Television camera system or CCTV as known by many is a TV system that is used for surveillance and for security purposes. Its contents or videos are being used for crimes and presented as evidence in the rule of law. These cameras are also a strong deterrent for criminals since if they know that there is a CCTV in the area or house, it is most likely they will not continue to do the crime.

If you are getting a CCTV system, there are terms that you might encounter. Here are the possible jargon you might see:

  • Digital video recorder - DVR - It is basically the computer that saves security videos into a hard drive.
  • Network video recorder - NVR - It’s a program or software that records video into a digital format which can be saved to a storage device like SD memory cards, external drives, flash drives and etc.
  • IP camera - Internet protocol camera. It is being used to have the ability to send and receive data through the computer’s network and into the internet.
  • ‍Analog camera - has a lower resolution compared to IP camera. It is also connected to a DVR.

There are different types of CCTV Cameras. But here are the common ones:

  • Indoor Camera - used in homes, offices, restaurants, etc.
  • Outdoor Camera - used outside wherein they have limited night lighting.
  • IR day/night camera - used in a high level of security areas such as military camps and other security zones.
  • Dome Camera - installed where there are many people present always in a certain area like subways and bus stations.

There are some things that we always take for granted. But don’t do it for your security. 

Some CCTV systems may come costly but if it’s for the protection of your family at work or people from work, isn’t worth it right?

Very pleased with the installation of fans by Static Electrics. The electrician arrived right on time, installed the fans, cleaned up everything when completed & took away the old fans & all the packings. I will be having Static Electrics do my electrical work in future.


I found Jarvis to be very prompt/respectful and informative. As having never dealt with solar before he answered all my questions patiently and in layman's terms. You should be very happy to have Jarvis on your team and he is credit to your business with his professionalism.Thank you very much Jarvis!

David did an admirable job in installing a new solar inverter to our property. He gave a very clear and concise exp;lanation of how the system worked and what to look for in the event of a system malfunction. It is so satisfying to witness such efficiency!

Nathan from Static Electrics came to diagnose an issue with a split system. Nathan was on time, polite, diagnosed the problem and fixed it. As a result of Nathan's manner and presentation i'll be taking all my future electrical business to Static. Keep up the good work.


Nathan was on time and did a fantastic job servicing my air conditioner. He was very knowledgable and was able to fix a couple of small issues I had. He left everything clean and tidy too. The job was well done and the price was great. Thanks!

Once again a great job performed by Static. These guys are very professional, friendly and tidy. We have used them on a number of occasions and never been disappointed or had any issues. Thanks to Nathan for his work today.


Great company to deal with - Static are one of the top rated contractors our company uses. I have also used them personally for Airconditioning work at my property. Nathan was very professionally, tidy and informative. Would not hestitate to call them again.

Luke Ehrenberg

Terrific service. Installers came on time, were friendly and efficient, and even cleaned up after themselves !! Absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company, and will definitely use them again

Anne Hattersley

Jeremy arrived on time, in fact he was a little early, he was clean and well presented in his work uniform and very courteous. He asked a few questions about what our air con was doing, to work out what he needed to do, then got stuck into it. His knowledge and attention to detail was impressive and by the time he was finished, our air con unit looked like it was brand new again. Before the cleaning out of the indoor unit, the fan was hardly blowing any air at all, but once the cleaning was finished and with the unit reassembled, Jeremy turned it on to test everything and the fan was now blowing like a force 10 gale, absolutely brilliant, exactly what we had hoped for, we are now all set for the next summer season. We will absolutely totally get Jeremy back at the end of the next summer season to clean the unit again. Top job we can highly recommend this company.
