What are Camera Form Factors?

Published by Marie on December 9, 2014 10:54 AM

It may sound complicated, but a camera's form factor just describes the camera's body type. These can range from dome cameras to PTZ and bullet, and knowing the different types will help you select the best camera for your surveillance needs.

Cameras can generally fall into several categories, so you can narrow down your search. Do you want an indoor or outdoor camera? Does it need to be vandal proof? How about covert? Or do you need to monitor a large space, and want a PTZ camera? Asking these questions as you shop will help you focus on a camera specially designed for your video needs and environment.
