You often get to hear about the vandal's wrath, destruction of cameras before they barge in to your office, house, show room or banks. How can you prevent this?
To prevent this, you need to install a modern outdoor surveillance camera in order to monitor what is happening outside the home. You must know what the additional features you need to have in a security device so that the device is not subject to their vandalism. Make use of a dome shaped device such that it is not easily noticeable. It also offers a good interior as they come in different hues like a lamp shade. They look like dome shaped lights which conceal the actual security device. Is not it great?
There's more to this. You can possibly choose the one with advanced tinted glass. This hides the direction of the device and one will be left clueless about its focus angle. No infiltrator will be able to view the direction of the device and will get easily misled. You are smarter than an infiltrator, is not it?
The other factor you need to pay attention to is the weather conditions. Since you are installing this device outside, you must ensure that it meets the weather conditions. You may have to have a roof or have them under a shaded area. Remember that it should be placed where there is enough lighting or you should pick up one with inbuilt lighting in the device itself. Some even come with a wiper like your car wipers. They are suitable for rainy season too. Placing them near air ducts and vents will offer better visibility so making them free of fog, mist and its lens remains clear.
Place them in an elevated area such that no body notices it nor destroys it!
