Do You Need a Vandal-Proof Camera?
When shopping for a new or updated video surveillance system, it's important to consider whether or not vandal-proof (also referred to as a "vandal resistant") security cameras will benefit your installation. VideoSurveillance.com features a broad range of vandal-proof surveillance cameras outfitted with exceptionally heavy-duty enclosures to withstand physical mistreatment such as blows from objects.
If your surveillance application is susceptible to vandalism or other damage, then we recommend investing in a vandal-proof system. Here are three preemptive measures you can take if you haven't already purchased a vandal-proof system:
Check cabling: Make sure to have the camera's cable is out of sight and unreachable by someone walking near or directly in its path. All cabling should be concealed by a wall or ceiling to prevent someone from trying to disconnect the camera.
Mounting: If possible, the camera should be flush-mounted into a ceiling or wall to make it less vulnerable to an attack. This type of installation makes it so that the camera is not entirely exposed. As a result, it's less of a target to someone who's looking to break or dismantle it. A hanging or pendant mount will make it easier for someone to attack the camera.
Out-of-Reach Placement: Surveillance cameras should be installed on surfaces that are out of arm's reach. Consider placement on high ceilings and walls when installing your system.
