Understanding Fixed Dome Cameras

Fixed domes provide a popular means of monitoring a specific area in a more discreet manner than a traditional camera. Housed inside a plastic casing, usually with a smoked, gold or silver finish, they offer protection from tampering whilst preventing observers from detecting what area of surveillance the dome is covering.

Complimentary to any CCTV installation, these cameras can be supplied in a range of formats and specifications dependant on the requirement, including monochrome and Vandal Resistant.

Due to the increase in demand for ruggedised products in particular applications, some fixed domes have been developed to offer vandal resistance. These vary in strength, from protection against the impact of heavy hammers to bullet proofing.
