Making the decision to do a PTZ upgrade was step one, so now we need to move into our next phase of choosing what type of PTZ camera you will need. Ultimately the topic discussed here today can be applied over several different options when buying an IP Surveillance Camera.
Our very first question is none other than… “Is the camera going to be located indoors or outdoors?” This will give us the first ideas as to what types of enclosure you’ll need to support your new surveillance set-up.
Enclosures and location will go hand in hand when taking the first leaps of your purchase. Dome is the most viable solution with all of these circumstances. Going with a ceiling or wall mount can work to be interchangeable between indoors and out (with regards to the hardware’s materials). Newer model PTZ cameras have began to focus on delivering PTZ to household consumers outside of the dome. These options are available on such models as the TrendNet TV-IP400 or the 4XEM IPCAMWPTZ.
With the exception of some home- based and behind-the-counter set-ups, the dome is highly recommended for its versatility and vandal-proof features.
