Weather-Resistant Housing Protects Camera from the Elements
Outdoor-ready cameras are typically outfitted with weather-resistant housing to protect them from extreme heat and cold, wind, rain, humidity, dust and vibration. VideoSurveillance.com’s selection of outdoor cameras comes with IP66 and IP67-rated housings for protection from harsh environments. With proper housing these cameras will deliver high-quality performance regardless of the conditions outside.
Outdoor Cameras Adapt to Changing Lighting Conditions
Since lighting conditions outside are anything but stable, outdoor cameras have to be able to adapt to everything from bright, high-contrast conditions and direct sunlight, to dark shadows, grey cloudy skies, and everything in between. Most outdoor cameras today use auto-iris lenses that will automatically adjust to changes in lighting throughout the day. Many outdoor surveillance systems rely on day/night cameras and IP cameras that have specialized lighting such as IR illuminators so you can continue to capture images even in complete darkness.
Vandal-Resistant Housing Helps Protect Cameras
Some outdoor network cameras are equipped with vandal-resistant designs, which helps protect the cameras in exposed locations. Tamper detection is also included with many outdoor cameras, alerting surveillance operators when a video feed has been blocked or disrupted.
