Rhino is an independent CCTV installation company we’re not contracted to promote one single manufacturer’s equipment. Instead we look carefully at each installation and evaluate the requirements on an individual basis . We use a wide range of cameras from Swann, Hikvision, Bosch, Triax, Sony, Genie, Honeywell and Panasonic so every installation is truly bespoke.
Eyeball or Dome Cameras
Although available as internal or external units we find that “eyeballs” are really popular inside. They’re small, discreet, and because they come in a range of colours they can blend in easily with your existing décor. It’s even possible to get bespoke “eyeballs” designed in a wood or stone finish! They have a really wide angle lens which captures a large area on screen.
Available in a choice of vari or fixed focal and day or night vision or both, bullet cameras provide excellent High Resolution images in analogue, digital or hybrid formats. Because they’re focussed on a fixed spot they don’t provide as much coverage as a wide angle eyeball camera but the quality of the image is superior.
Pan, Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) Cameras
PTZ cameras can be positioned from a control unit or even from your Smartphone to pan, tilt and zoom in so you can log in remotely and change the direction of your camera to view images in crystal clear digital high resolution. Or you can program them to “sweep” an area so they move every few seconds to cover all the angles. This works particularly well when a PTZ camera is positioned on the corner of a building to cover two flanks.
Covert cameras are designed to look like objects that don’t resemble cameras. Very often small lenses are concealed within a housing which is camouflaged to look like a smoke alarm, thermostat or doorbell. They can be remotely viewed from your Smartphone and all the captured images can be stored on a hard drive. Because they’re “invisible” they don’t act as a deterrent but they will let you know what’s going on without anyone knowing.
