Pros and Cons of Infrared Vandal Resistant Dome CCTV Cameras

Dome CCTV Cameras with Night Vision and Vandal-Resistant Housing. They are perfect for indoor and outdoor use. Big advantage of dome cameras is housing itself. It is hard to tell where exactly camera is pointing. Intruder can’t just approach camera “from behind” like in case of bullet cameras. Slick dome design makes them also more elegant and less offensive than bullet or box cameras. Dome cameras are perfect solution for retail environment, office, hotels, casinos, restaurant etc. Dome housing also protects camera from tempering. No other type of camera is as well protected from vandalism as dome cameras. With 3 and 4 Axis bracket, dome cameras can be mounted on the ceiling and on the wall, although we do not recommend mounting dome cameras on the wall in outdoor setting. We recommend using specifically designed wall mounts, which will protect camera from elements and make adjustment easier. Dome cameras are designed so there is a room for connection to main cable inside the housing. No wires are exposed, making installation less vulnerable for any damage. Dome Infrared Cameras are designed for short range night vision, usually no more than 80ft. They can be equipped with variable focal length lens which allows setting desired field of view (wide angle to close up). Disadvantages of dome infrared cameras include: possible sun glare and slight distortion of picture caused by dome shape, limited angle for adjustment due to infrared plate inside the housing, in outdoor application dome is more exposed to elements and requires cleaning more often than in case of bullet or box cameras. Please consider all advantages and disadvantages before selecting camera.
