Welcome to the
Miniature Dome Cameras - continued
In addition to the indoor versions, their are also an increasing number of fully weatherproofed outdoor versions, although again, these are generally optimised for limited distance work, perhaps up to 5 - 8 metres from the camera.
REMOTE CONTROL DOME CAMERAS
Although miniature fixed domes are growing in popularity, their much larger remote control cousins have been sweeping the land like something out of War of the Worlds.
As with miniature domes, Architects and Town Planners absolutely adore them, because they consider that they blend in harmoniously with their immediate surroundings; guess what guys ..... we dont want them to blend in!!
If you cant see the flippin camera, or it looks like a modern type of street lighting, then its not much use as a visible deterrent.
As a quick and convenient method for commissioning a fully functional, indeed in some cases, hugely impressive fully functional camera, they take some beating; but as the key component in a deterrent system, they really do not fulfil this function adequately, in most situations.
That said, the CCTV industry will continue to develop dome cameras, irrespective of whether they are the most appropriate solution in every given situation. For inside a large retail department store, they are absolutely ideal; stick them at a crossroads on any average high street, and you can be sure that someone, somewhere, hasnt really done their homework properly.
