Dome cameras get their name from their dome-shaped structure. These security cameras are designed to withstand all elements, both inside and outside. Their construction allows for the camera to work even in low-light or no-light settings due to the built-in infrared LEDs. All cameras have the ability to send video signals over the Internet so an owner can access the footage at any time. Below are some advantages of installing dome security cameras.
Variety and Flexibility
The dome security camera offers variety in terms of shape, size, and angle. Some cameras are packed with night vision while others have pan-tilt-zoom features and motion sensors. These cameras can be placed practically anywhere, from cross-roads to parking lots, to someone’s backyard. One huge selling point of dome cameras is their massive area coverage options. The wide-angle of the dome camera provides a maximized viewing area and, if equipped with the proper sensors, can act as panoramic surveillance cameras.
Due to their simple design, dome security cameras tend to be unnoticeable. Many users install these cameras at front doors, churches, or other places where visitors may not anticipate surveillance cameras. The low profile nature also comes in handy when trying to avoid vandalism. Some dome security cameras are vandal-proof, but for those that aren’t, the inconspicuous design does prevent some crime. The camera lens is protected, making the camera more durable. People tend to not be able to tell which direction the lens of the camera is pointing, thus adding to its discreet style and hopefully deterring criminals with a sense of uncertainty. The minimalist cameras tend to blend in with surroundings, making the security system seem less intrusive.
