The right tool for the task is the goal when choosing the dome camera best-suited to your application. That choice comes down to two primary concerns--resolution and lens coverage. In other words, how far do you need to detect, recognize, and identify individuals, and what degree of area do you wish to secure?
Our IP Dome Cameras shoot in high definition (HD), at 1080p (Two Megapixels), 4MP, 4K (8MP), or 12MP. Those numbers are the camera’s resolution with 1080p being the lowest resolution and 12MP the highest. The individual specifications listed for each of our dome cameras will enumerate at what distances subjects can be readily detected, recognized, or identified.
An additional factor of resolution is the camera lens type. Is it a fixed lens? Or a motorized varifocal, allowing it to zoom in on a targeted area?
The second major factor--lens coverage--is measured in degrees and is also listed with the specifications for each camera. SCW’s IP Dome Cameras have lens coverages ranging from 81⁰ all the way up to a full 360⁰.
When choosing your SCW IP Dome Camera expect to find a variety of options ranging from IR capability (infrared), digital wide-dynamic range, built-in microphone, speaker, two-way talk support, alarm inputs and outputs, and more.
Because dome cameras hang from ceilings and under roof soffits, they are afforded a degree of protection from the elements. Additionally, SCW’s IP Dome Cameras are rated IP67 for full protection from dust, rain, snow, dew, frost, and sprinklers. They can even be submerged for a few minutes.
In temperatures from as low as -40⁰F to as high as 140⁰F, our dome cameras will function fully. Our white-only exterior camera housings are specifically chosen to dissipate intense summer heat which can cause failures in competitor’s cameras.
SCW has the commercial-grade dome camera to meet all your security system needs. And with our expert design team, we’ll find the exact camera for you without any up-selling. Top that off with our free, lifetime, US-based tech support, and you’ll soon discover why SCW is America’s most trusted security camera provider.
