It is every individual’s responsibility to secure his or her’s home, office or business. Even if you carry insurance and can get compensated in case something happens, it will still lead to a lot of heartache and also leave a sense of being violated. To prevent from being a target of burglaries or vandalism, you can opt for home security systems. Such home security usually consists of a numbered keypad which requires a special code put-in before allowing access to your home, and security cameras and silent alarms. There are many options to choose from when you are thinking of installing a security camera. One of the most popular ones in Jacksonville, FL is the dome camera; it comes in a wide variety of designs and offers plenty of adaptability.
Dome Camera Benefits
Dome cameras can be fitted in a recessed part of the ceiling with the housing dark-tinted to conceal the camera, or they can be wall mounted, on a bracket. The final choice should depend on the area to be covered and the required dexterity. With today’s advanced technology, dome cameras can be analog or digital, fixed or mobile and also web-enabled. This allows for real-time data streaming which can prove invaluable in sensitive areas. Technologically advanced PTZ dome cameras can pan, tilt, zoom and focus, and pinpoint any area, operated wirelessly. They can also be fitted with thermal sensors or infrared for night vision or can be simple daytime security cameras only.
Infrared enabled dome cameras are ideal for people who are away from their homes a lot; IR cameras can capture images with little or no light. This renders images of poor quality and resolution, and so identifying anyone becomes difficult.
IP cameras, aka web-enabled cameras can be monitored wirelessly, and they send wireless messages including images in real time, making your home security much more efficient. Since these cameras can be housed in transparent domes, they can be used even in hazardous areas.
Fixed dome cameras are more suited to public places like hotels, conference rooms, offices, shopping malls and casinos that need a larger area to be monitored. These domed ceiling mounted cameras can also be vandal-proofed and tamper-proofed. This will prevent miscreants from tampering with the cameras, even if they’re placed outside. Care should be taken to ensure that dome cameras placed outside do not get affected by the extreme weather conditions, and so some weather-proofing might also be needed to ensure the camera’s long life.
In areas with little or no light, dome cameras with good lux rating will enable better image capturing, even in dark areas. To help home owners, there are dome cameras fitted with LEDs which produce better images. Modern technology has come up with fixed dome cameras that have variable focal lengths for better imaging and are capable of recoding images with color during the day and in black and white at night. This can be a bit more expensive than other models, as it has both day and night capacity.
