There’s A Reason Why Bullet Cameras Are Consistently Used…

There’s always a reason as to why we do the things we do. There’s always a purpose behind the choices we make. A method to our madness if you will. I’m not trying to come off as overly philosophical, more so just trying to make a point. When we choose a particular piece of technology over another, there’s always a reason for it. We’re not going to purposefully choose the worse device over the better one. At that point, you would be wasting your money and coming off as illogical. You can apply this to just about every device. Take a security camera system for example. You can have all the necessary recording software you need, but when it comes to the actual cameras, there is always comparisons to be had and decisions to be made.

All in all, there are plenty of choices that can be made that will meet your surveillance needs. There is one camera in particular, though, that many use; the bullet camera. Again, there’s a reason for this.

There is a lot that a bullet camera can offer the smart surveillance system shopper.

The bullet camera is a generally small camera that can be placed in various discreet locations, usually far enough out of reach to avoid vandalism. The entire reason you’re looking for a surveillance system is to stop things like vandalism anyway, right? These cameras are designed with a streamlined structure that allows them to be set up in places that most cameras couldn’t be placed in. Naturally, because of the design, this is where the camera gets its name. When you set up your security camera system, you want to be able to do it with the confidence that your cameras won’t be susceptible to vandalism. When you choose to have a bullet camera as part of you’re system, you get that confidence as they are easy to hide.

These cameras are also weather-proof. These are essentially the best cameras to have for outdoor surveillance. The typical box camera requires additional housing to the camera itself, and that can add to the overall cost of your security system. Additionally, bullet cameras are relatively cheap. Once placed outside, nothing short of a hurricane or tornado is going to stop this camera from monitoring what ever you want it to monitor.

If you’re looking for night time monitoring (who isn’t), you don’t need to worry about looking for another type of camera either. Most, if not all bullet cameras these days come with built in IR LEDs. Some of these IR bullet cameras can see up to 300 feet in complete darkness thanks to the number of Infrared LEDS that are packed into them. That’s the other sense of brilliance in the camera’s design. The lenses of these cameras are generally small, so that leaves more room to put the infrared LEDS in them. Obviously the more you have working together, the further the camera is able to see in the darkness.

The bullet camera is one of the most utilized cameras in any surveillance system, and with good reason. Between the weatherproof housing, the small size that can be utilized for proper and secluded placement, and the fact that almost all of them come with IR capabilities now, it’d be almost asinine to NOT have these in your security camera system.

Are You Trying To Decide Between Bullet Cameras And Dome Cameras For Outdoor Use?

Posted in Bullet Camera Review, Covert, Low Light, What is a Bullet Cam with tags , , , , , , , on May 8, 2014 by thatoneguy7

There are so many things to think about when you are deciding on a surveillance system and any possible accessories. One of the biggest things to consider when choosing everything for your surveillance system is the what types of cameras to use. You need to find out if the system itself is for indoor use or outdoor use. It may not seem like that big of a deal, but then again, that might be a much bigger deciding factor than you realize. Certain cameras are better suited for different environments, naturally.

So, you’ve done a little bit of research, but you still can’t decide which would be better for your outdoor surveillance system. You know you like the dome cameras, and you know that you’re a fan of the bullet camera as well. The next question you may have is which would be better.

Both of these cameras have their pros and cons, just like anything else in the world.

The bullet camera is designed to be a bit smaller and easier to use all around. They are pretty easy to install and readjust. Should you need to move your camera too a better position, there’s nothing getting in your way from moving it. Additionally, almost every bullet camera every comes with infrared (IR) LEDs built into them. IR is going to be a big deal for you, especially for night time monitoring. Since you are placing the camera outside, you’re going to want to have this camera work well in low light situations. Research the camera and see how far and how wide it’s FOV (Field Of View) while the IR function is operating. As long as it’s a pretty far view, this may be a big deciding factor. The casing around these cameras is almost always weatherproof as well. Since the outdoors can get a bit brutal depending on your area, weatherproof casing is basically a must. The downside to these is that they may be easily susceptible to vandalism and people can see which direction the camera is facing.

The dome camera uses its casing as its selling point. They use this casing to consider themselves “vandal proof,” basically the casing around the camera will be able to protect the camera itself. The casing of the dome camera can also be tinted, thus making it more difficult for potential criminals to view exactly where the camera is facing. Another fact to consider is that the wiring isn’t exposed for this camera, furthering it’s “vandal proof” claims. The downside to these cameras is that the tinting can affect the overall viewing capabilities at night. You would almost surely need to add lighting sources around the camera, but this would make people more aware of the camera itself. That, and dome cameras are frequently more expensive than bullet cameras.

All things considered, this is a pretty even match. You can read reviews all day long, but at the end of the day, you know what you are installing your surveillance system. You know what you are going to be looking for and looking to deter with these cameras. It would be best to research the cameras as much as possible, figure out what you need them for, and then decide for yourself!
