Surveillance cameras are used in commercial and domestic premises to monitor. However, the size, appearance, and model type often depend on their intended location within a building or home. Therefore, it is vital to understand this distinction when purchasing one.
The four types of surveillance cameras commonly used in homes are listed below, explaining each one’s specifications.
- Fixed domes: these operate in the same way as built-in outdoor cameras covered by plastic dome casings that protect them from outside weather conditions.
They can fit into open spaces indoors or outdoors because they are easy to install due to their small size. These cameras allow high-quality viewing angles with night vision capabilities through infrared light.
- Bullet cameras: these are more traditional CCTV camera types that fit into the end of a cylindrical metal tubular housing.
However, they are also usable in homes through their magnetic base, which can be removed and repositioned whenever required. Several lenses allow for high viewing angles that can cover indoor and outdoor spaces like courtyards or gardens.
Since the housing is round, it often requires wiring back to an external power source because no internal batteries are included; instead, it must remain plugged into the mains at all times.
- PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) network cameras: these can typically see further distances than other models but tend to require professional installation not only because of their size but also because of their network connectivity.
They are more suitable for larger spaces than indoor homes, particularly warehouses or large business premises.
- Box cameras: these are the least common type that can be seen on outdoor walls or facades of commercial buildings. They are almost always used in conjunction with other types to provide surveillance at many angles and ranges due to how difficult it is to install a single camera facing every direction at once.
