Should I Use a Bullet or Dome Camera?
AvertX offers two general types of fixed IP cameras: bullet cameras and dome cameras. Both types are versatile and can be used in a variety of applications. However, bullet cameras and dome cameras each have different advantages to consider in the design and installation of your system.
- It is easy to tell which way a bullet camera is pointed. Use a bullet cameras in locations that you want people to know that a camera is pointed at them.
- Bullet cameras are easy to mount and aim – no dome to remove for access.
- Ball joint mounts on bullet cameras allow for easy installation on a wide variety of surfaces including surfaces with angles and uneven surfaces like stucco.
- Available with fixed lens (HD420) and Autofocus Zoom Lens (HD920).
- It is hard to tell which way a dome camera is pointed. Use a dome camera in locations that you don’t want people to know which way the camera is pointed. Dome cameras are popular in retail settings for this reason.
- Dome cameras are visually appealing and may be painted to match your exterior. Most AvertX dome cameras include paintable covers.
- Because the mounting hardware and camera lens is enclosed in a high-impact dome, dome cameras are more secure against vandalism. For the same reason, dome cameras require more effort and care to install.
- Available with fixed lens (HD320) and Autofocus Zoom Lens (HD820).
- Optional mounting accessories for dome cameras are available from AvertX.
