"..businesses are not happy with the latest crop of indoor security cameras that are being offered to them.” - Allen Spears Rugged CCTV

Security Cameras for businesses have advanced to the point where they are smarter, smaller and, to voice a common complaint from many businesses, they look cheaper too.
“Since the advent of Digital Security Camera Systems, businesses are now confident that the video from their cameras will look great,” says Allen Spears, Chief Engineer for Rugged CCTV, a manufacturer of the Rugged Cams brand of security cameras, “But businesses are not happy with the latest crop of indoor security cameras that are being offered to them.” he says. “The most common complaints we are hearing, is that they look like they are for home use, they don't blend in, and the impression on their customers is that they've bought the cheapest cameras available. So, our mandate was to marry a high quality video camera, to a rich, sophisticated housing.”
The result is the Low Pro Digital Security Camera from Rugged CCTV. The low profile housing looks exactly like a high-end indoor Pan-Tilt-Zoom camera housing that has been recessed into the ceiling. In reality, the Low Pro is a stationary security camera that is flush-mounted, so no recessed hole is needed. Not only does the Low Pro camera cost a fraction of the PTZ camera it mimics, but installation can be accomplished in mere minutes.
This is no dumb security camera though. There are brains behind the beauty. The Low Pro employs a technologically advanced High Resolution, Day/Night Sony 1/3” Super HAD II CCD camera module, married to a NextChip Digital Signal Processor (DSP), that gives the camera a whole host of programmable features, and outputs a whopping 560 lines of resolution.
The Sony-NextChip combination is a popular choice of Professionals, and provides an on-screen menu that allows the user to tell the camera how to precisely control for challenging lighting conditions. Mounted inside the housing is a small joystick controller for navigating through menu options, and a secondary video plug-in port for handheld monitors so that aiming, focusing and programming changes can be accomplished right at the camera. This is Smart Control Technology, and it is the latest advancement in the security camera industry.
The Low Pro camera also has a Varifocal 2.8-12mm manual zoom lens with a built-in Automatic Iris, so getting the exact view you need is simple and quick. Most cameras that have a varifocal lens are limited to a 4-9mm zoom, and do not allow for the wider angles and closer zooms that are attainable with the Low Pro.
When installing the Low Pro camera, you can hook up whatever voltage is available because the Low Pro will auto-detect between 12V DC and 24V AC, and has built-in short protection in case the polarity is wrong.
Where to mount the camera usually requires some trade-offs, but the Low Pro is designed to mount absolutely anywhere – at any angle – on any type of surface. What makes this possible is a combination of an innovative 3-axis mount that can correct the lens back to an upright and level picture no matter how the housing is mounted, and an included metal backer plate that adapts for thin wall or ceiling materials, and also allows the camera to fit directly onto any single or double gang electrical box. No other security camera offers as many mounting options.
After only a few months on the market, there are already well over a thousand Low Pro security cameras in businesses all over the world. Feedback from businesses and installers has been overwhelmingly positive. They like the high tech features and the flawless digital video, but they seem to be truly impressed with the low cost.
Rugged CCTV has priced the Low Pro Business Security Camera at $179, complete with a manual and a Two-Year Warranty.
