Investing in a quality video surveillance system is a good decision. You have many assets that you must protect, so you need to be sure that your security system suits your needs and expectations.

A camera form factor describes the type of body the camera has, ranging from bullet cameras to domes and small covert cameras. The different bodies are suited for different locations, including indoors or out, giving you the ability to select the camera specific to your surveillance needs.You will have to determine what type of camera you need. Some of the main form factor options include:
Bullet Security Cameras are presented with an elegant shape design cylindrical, can be mounted on the walls or ceilings. They capture images from a fixed area that they’re pointing at.
Dome Security Cameras sit in a dome-shaped housing, which allows an unobtrusive vision. The dome is usually tinted to obscure the camera itself so that it is impossible to see where the camera is pointed. Units allowing the camera to spin quickly inside the dome are called “Speed Domes”.
Pan, Tilt, and Zoom (PTZ) Security Cameras can be controlled manually or automatically for zooming, tilting, or panning. These cameras look like dome cameras, and are also encased in a hard-shell dome which both protects it and obscures the camera’s direction from curious onlookers. They’re also available in a dome version, called PTZ Dome Cameras.
A box camera is optimal for when you need a small, specific area that you may want to zoom in close on, since its aim is fixed in a single direction. Box cameras do not come with a lens. Instead you have the option to select from a wide variety of lenses. Another strength of the lens design is that they are larger than the typical camera. This means more light can come in contact with the sensor, and this gives you more clarity.
Hidden security cameras, also known as spy cameras or covert cameras, are often the best type of camera to use when you don’t want someone to know that there is a camera. They are mostly used in the interior of houses or offices to record without being detected thanks to the fact that their shape does not resemble a conventional camera but appear to be, for example, fake objects that pretend to be something else, such as smoke detectors, motion detectors, watches, sprinklers, exit signs, etc.
A 360 view security cameras, also known as fisheye cameras, have an extremely large viewing angle of 180 degrees or more. 360º view camera allow to implement a single camera that enable a 360 degree security view.
A turret camera, also called eyeball camera, has a ball-and-socket type of design and is similar in form and installation to the dome cameras. Turret security cameras have better night vision image quality compared with cameras, making them ideal for dark indoor and/or outdoor environments.
Fixed Security Cameras have a fixed viewing angle and can be mounted to cover a specific area. These cameras are also available in a dome shape, called Fixed Dome Cameras, which are not so easy to tamper with and it is difficult to tell which direction the camera is pointing to.
Cameras can also be indoor or outdoor and weather or vandal proof in addition to being a dome, bullet, or other form factor.
