  Pan/Tilt/Zoom cameras – In opposition to fixed cameras, these one’s can be moved during operations in VigilZone’s portal: Pan means to turn the camera lens into a desired position, Tilt means to rotate the lens itself and Zoom means selecting a part of the image and optically or digitally just transmit that part of the stream. They also exist for in- and outdoor and in wired and wireless versions.

  Dome cameras – This also classifies cameras to the formfactor as a dome. Dome cameras have the advantages of being more discreet, have multiple mounting options. As the lens is difficult to see inside the housing, the observer doesn’t know if he is captured by the camera.
