Dome security CCTV surveillance cameras are named for their dome like shape. Dome cameras are commonly used in Surveillance Systems inside of Casinos, Retail Stores, and Restaurants. This is because dome cameras are more fashionable and blend in very well to their surroundings. Because of their dome shape, it is difficult for someone to tell which direction the lens of a Dome Camera is actually aiming.
Dome cameras are either ceiling mounted or suspended from a wall mounted bracket depending on the application and the field of view required. The camera unit is mounted inside a transparent dome which can be tinted to obscure the camera position.
A varifocal dome camera gives you the flexibility to adjust the focal distance of the camera lens to exactly where you need it.
