Sentry Surveillance offers many options for your business serving US and Canada.

Professional security camera installers use 360-degree, fisheye cameras with a multi-sensor feature depending on the business needs and requirements. Fisheye cameras use a fisheye lens that supports 180-degree monitoring with High-Definition video quality.
A fisheye camera is a camera that uses an extremely wide-angle lens to capture a viewing range of about 180 degrees. This type of camera is called a “fisheye” because it approximates the vision of a fish’s convex eye. Circular fisheye lenses generally capture a 180-degree angle of view or larger which is projected as a circle within the image frame. The image is highly distorted, and this will be more prominent depending on how close objects are to the lens and where in the frame they are located. Fisheye view can only provide a maximum of 15ft of facial recognition on recorded video for legally admissible footage in court. Second choice is the signal type. We carry both IP cameras and HD over Coax cameras in fisheye form. The angle of view of a fisheye lens is usually between 100 and 180 degrees while the focal lengths depend on the film format they are designed for. Mass-produced fisheye lenses for photography first appeared in the early 1960s and are generally used for their unique, distorted appearance.
PTZ security cameras offer rapid panning and tilt speeds, with a continuous 360-degree rotation that enables quick camera movement and focus on different subjects or objects in a surveillance area. PTZ stands for Pan, Tilt and Zoom. A surveillance camera with PTZ functionality features a rotating lens with directional and zoom capabilities, and the camera can be controlled remotely; It can pan left to right and tilt up and down. A PTZ camera is practical for very big area that you need to monitor from a centralized place. At the other hand an IP camera is good for small locations, and it can help you do the monitoring of area from any place without having any trouble or complication in the entire process. PTZ cameras can be controlled in a variety of ways including an IR remote, a joystick controller, and software. IR remote controls usually offer a limited set of basic features for controlling the camera and recalling presets. IP cameras offer higher resolution video and better picture quality than CCTV cameras. CCTV cameras offer lower resolution video and less picture quality than IP cameras.
