What’s The Difference Between Indoor and Outdoor CCTV Cameras?

Dummy CCTV CameraCCTV cameras are becoming more and more popular in the UK amongst people who place the safety of their family and property at a premium. Getting CCTV installed has never been as accessible as it is now and there is an ever expanding choice of CCTV cameras, kits and packages available. That means it can be difficult to know which sort of cameras are best for you. One of the most fundamental things that you need to understand is the difference between indoor and outdoor CCTV cameras.

Indoor CCTV cameras tend to be smaller and more lightweight than their outdoor counterparts. The internal wiring s and features tend to the same and their more lightweight design is thanks to the fact they are not exposed to the weather or tampering by potential burglars.

Outdoor CCTV cameras are made of more durable materials than indoor cameras and are heavier and much more robust to withstand the elements and to protect the camera within from tampering. Some may even be housed in casing to protect them.

Dome cameras can often be used both indoors and outdoors. Cameras are housed inside a dome that is both to ensure it is protected from the elements and to stop onlookers knowing exactly where the camera is pointing.

When deciding what sort of CCTV cameras to install, we always advise you to seek the help of a CCTV expert who will ensure that you get the right cameras for your needs.
