Dome Camera vs Bullet Camera

Posted by on 3/14/2017 to News
  • Choosing security cameras can become daunting when it comes to indoor or outdoor surveillance. Options like the dome and bullet cameras can make the selection process more overwhelming to you. However, as long as you know and understand your requirements and you know the differences between each type of camera, you should be able to narrow your choices down and invest in the right surveillance system that can fulfill your security requirements. Here is an overview of the dome camera and the bullet camera to help you decide which one is best for your needs:


    • Dome camera – The dome camera is called as such due to its shape. It is typically installed by hanging from a wall-mounted bracket or by mounting on the ceiling, depending on the installation and the field of view required. The camera is within a transparent dome that is often tinted to prevent people from detecting it. Dome cameras come in different varieties, such as IP or CCTV, indoor or outdoor, and fixed or mobile. There are PTZ dome cameras, too, which can be more reliable for surveillance due to their variety of features. If you are looking for a customizable surveillance camera system, then consider getting dome cameras that have infrared illuminators, thermal vision, night vision, and other essential features.

    • Bullet camera – The bullet security camera gets its name from its shape, which is like the bullet of a rifle. Sometimes, it is called, ‘lipstick camera’ due to the same reason, too. It is typically around two to 2.5 inches long, with a fixed focal length lens, making them practical for small spaces. However, because of the size and shape of bullet cameras, you may need to be careful on how or where you position them because those factors may cause the camera to cut the corners off an image.
