What are dome surveillance cameras?
Dome surveillance cameras get their name because of their circular dome shape. The camera rests in a transparent protective dome. It is harder to install than a bullet camera because of the moving inside parts. They are available for both inside and outside use. Many businesses, such as restaurants, hotels, and retail stores, use them since they are discrete.
One of the main benefits of dome cameras is it is hard to tell where it is pointing. If you are looking from a distance, you can never tell what the camera is looking at. Also, they are generally more resistant and durable in regards to vandalism as the camera lens is protected. There are vandal-proof dome cameras that have more durable covers that can be resistant to general acts of vandalism. Bullet CCTV cameras are easily knocked off or repositioned to point in another direction. The design and shape of dome cameras can allow you to monitor a wider area and angle as the lens moves. Dome cameras are more discrete, rotate well, vandal-resistant, weatherproof, and have night vision.
