PTZ camera, a pan tilt zoom camera is a camera that is capable of remote directional and zoom control. PTZ cameras make it possible to monitor large areas with a single security camera.
COMPARED TO BULLET CAMERAS
Bullet cameras, also know of as lipstick cameras, get their name from their sleek shape which resembles the rifle bullet. These cameras are usually fairly small, around 2 to 2.5 inches long, and have a fixed focal point lens. With their versatile design, the bullet camera is usually compatible for indoor and outdoor use and often offer a substantial viewing range.
COMPARED TO DOME CAMERA
Dome cameras are attached to the ceiling or wall and encased in an inverted dome casing, from where it gets its name. the dome is usually tinted to obscure the camera itself so that it is impossible to see where the camera is pointed. These cameras offer a lot of variety and come in CCTV or IP, fixed or mobile, and outdoor and indoor. They may have a thermal vision, infrared illuminators, day use, as well as mini and micro versions.

Install them on the ceiling or wall to continuously monitor the entranceways or areas with high traffic, or move them around the house anytime, anywhere.
PoE, namely Power over Ethernet, for security camera, means extremely simple setup, with no power cable or adapter needed, you can easily monitor wide-range areas via just a single camera, without running separate power cables.
I cannot fault this PTZ IP camera at all, it is a mega package of features and hi resolution imaging. I bought it to watch my car on our residential parking area, after it was vandalised and hasn’t disappointed me. Several occasions I have noted suspicious activity via push notificationa to my mobile phone and using the app have reviewed time windows. Motion and people detection is very good, as is the night vision mode. All in all, very happy with my purchase and has helped me police and protect my cat.
Benjamin Redding, Awesome kit and great value
Excellent image quality and night vision for sub £250 camera. Works best on a wired Ethernet connection. Very impressed though, love the 18x zoom and the clear audio too… even picks up bees!
