Bullet Cameras: Workhorse of the Security System Industry
An IP Bullet Camera (Internet Protocol Bullet Camera), is a digital video camera that operates via an IP network. IP cameras are digital and connect via Cat5 (Networking) Cable. SCW’s IP Bullet Cameras can shoot in high definition (HD) at 1080p (2 Megapixels), 4MP, or 4K (8MP). Some bullet cameras with varifocal lenses are also suitable for long range surveillance.
Why Choose an IP Bullet Camera?
Bullet cameras are a staple of the surveillance industry. So-named for their bullet appearance they have also been called lipstick cameras. By either name, they are easily recognizable as an iconic standard for residential and commercial security systems. Their shape lends itself to most all outdoor applications as they are easily mounted to the sides of walls.
The unmistakable bullet shape makes these cameras prominent in any setting. That attribute provides an incalculable deterrent to would-be thieves, more inclined to prey on homes and businesses lacking an obvious security system. SCW’s all-white line of bullet cameras is sure to be seen by potential intruders.
What Makes Bullet Cameras Great For Any Situation?
Bullet cameras score high in maneuverability. Whereas dome cameras have a fixed field of view based on placement, bullet cameras are able to swivel. Once the camera is mounted it’s as simple as manually aiming it over the area desired to be covered. That convenience plays well if requirements change, if the camera is accidentally bumped off course, or if vandals were to realign the camera.
Protection Where It’s Most Needed
Whether mounted on walls, roof overhangs, soffits, or under eaves, bullet cameras’ wide range of placement makes them ideal for surveillance of high-traffic areas--stairways, alleys, driveways, entryway, front and back doors, and garage entrances. They offer exceptional imagery of the highest-risk locations.
With a more narrow range of view than an exterior dome camera, bullet cameras also offer less impact on the privacy of neighbors--an important factor in densely populated neighborhoods.
How Does an IP Bullet Camera Work?
Cameras as Individual Network Devices
IP Bullet Cameras are network cameras (they have their own network addresses that you can visit) that create digital HD (high definition) video directly on the camera then stream that video back to an Network Video Recorder (NVR), web browser, or smartphone.
Power over Ethernet
Our bullet cameras come with a PoE (Power over Ethernet) injector to power the camera for both recording purposes and its entire range of mechanical movement. No additional power cords are required. This greatly reduces installation time and bypasses the need for a professional electrician to run power cables. This simple, single-cable installation between cameras and the NVR we refer to as, “plug-and-play-ready.”
With applications for both indoor and outdoor use, all bullet cameras from SCW are weather-rated at IP67, meaning full protection from dust, rain, snow, dew, frost, and sprinklers. They can even be submerged for a few minutes. And all are extreme cold rated from as low as -40⁰F to 140⁰F.
The standard white exterior is intentional to dissipate heat. That means our cameras will continue to perform optimally in the hottest summers when other dark-housed cameras fail from heat absorption.
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?
Choosing the Right IP Bullet Camera
The right tool for the task is the goal when choosing the bullet camera best-suited to your application. How far do you need to detect, recognize, and identify individuals, and what degree of area do you wish to secure?
Whether you need to identify a human subject at twenty-five feet or reach out to 800 feet or require infrared night vision at 100 or up to 650 feet, SCW has the commercial-grade bullet camera to meet all your security system needs.
Our IP Bullet Cameras shoot in high definition (HD), at 1080p (Two Megapixels), 4MP, or 4K (8MP). Those numbers are the camera’s resolution with 1080p being the lowest resolution and 4K the highest. The individual specifications listed for each of our bullet 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? SCW carries varifocal IP Bullet Cameras that have both digital and optical zoom to ensure the highest image quality possible.
At SCW, our bullet cameras are IP (Internet Protocol), meaning that they offer several advantages over the outdated analog cameras still on the market. Expect to find a variety of options ranging from infrared (IR) capability, thermal sensors, optical zoom, motion sensors, motion lights, and even AI (Artificial Intelligence) which can distinguish between a person at your front door as opposed to a neighbor’s pet on the loose.
