Surveillance: It all about Design

If you’re curious about suspicious activity or if you would like the convenience and security of viewing who is at the front door or warehouse, then a security surveillance camera system is the right solution for you.

Whether for home or business, there are typically three main components that make up a surveillance camera system:


There literally hundreds of different types of cameras available, and Mark Electronics is here to help narrow the selection down based on your needs. Whether you’re looking for advanced control via dome pan/tilt/zoom cameras, needing weatherproof IR cameras for outdoor surveillance, IP POE, Mega-Pixel, wireless Mesh Cameras, or just wanting a simple indoor covert camera, a Mark Electronics’ specialist, along with your input, will determine the exact camera that will be suitable to allow you to see what you want, when you want it.

Other variables to consider when choosing cameras include whether you want to see near or far, whether you wish to have enhanced night vision Iris technology, or if you prefer the camera to be clearly visible or installed covertly in the form of a smoke detector or a clock.

DVR & NVR Digital Video Recording

There may come a time when you will need to go back in time to view the events of a certain situation, and a DVR, or Digital Video Recorder, gives you this ability. There are plenty of options when it comes to DVR’s, ranging from basic 1 TB hard drives to fully programmable multi-gig networkable drives with DVD re-writable and USB capabilities for digital video storage. All of our systems accompany a proprietary free app for remote viewing available for I-devices and Android operating systems.


So, we have covered the cameras and a way to record the footage via a DVR & NVR, but how do we view the live feed and/or recorded clips? Computer monitors, televisions, and now your tablets and smart phones can all serve as camera surveillance monitors. So, whether you’re at home or on the other side of the world, accessing and viewing your surveillance camera system is simple. Contact Mark Electronics to learn more about which monitor devices are compatible with particular camera/DVR packages.

PTZ Surveillance Cameras

If you’re looking for the ultimate total control surveillance, ask us about PTZ cameras (Pan, Tilt, and Zoom). PTZ cameras offer the ability to remote control or program an automatic survey of a much larger area of coverage by allowing you to remote control the direction and zoom of the camera in real time.
