What Is A Bullet Camera (CCTV & Others)?

Bullet cameras don't have anything to do with weapons, even though they're named after ammunition. A bullet camera has a long outer casing shaped like a cylinder—like a bullet. These cameras also look like pipes, bottles, or cans.

Bullet cameras are obvious when they're installed. Imagine a large pipe mounted in the corner of a room, on a fence, or by a door. These cameras are hard to ignore. That's on purpose. Bullet cameras provide visual defenses for your property. Thieves know a property is secured as soon as they see these cameras. Most criminals will leave instead of taking their chances.

Bullet cameras can also hold large lenses thanks to their shape. These lenses let you track action far away. This makes bullet cameras perfect for outdoor areas and large spaces. Bullet cameras are great for the following uses:

  • Parking lots
  • Fields, playgrounds, and parks
  • Greenways
  • Warehouse interiors
  • Event centers
  • Hallways

Mini bullet cameras are shorter and smaller than other models. They still have larger lenses than other cameras around the same size. These cameras can take wide-eye, close-up footage. A mini bullet camera is ideal for these situations:

  • Entrances and exits
  • Crime targets like cash registers and safes
  • Tight corners

Why Choose Bullet Surveillance Cameras?

Bullet cameras are large and obvious. A bullet camera makes a statement wherever you need visible security measures. But there are also other benefits to this type of camera.

Easy Installation

Most bullet cameras have a mounting handle attached to the camera body. This design makes bullet cameras easier to install than other camera options. There's no need to take the camera apart during installation. Lots of bullet cameras also have flexible positions. This means they're simple to install and rearrange later.

Security Cameras With Bigger Lenses

Bullet cameras have room for larger lenses thanks to their long bullet shape. A bullet camera with a telephoto lens can watch huge areas. For example, you can use these security cameras in parking lots, highways, and runways. Smaller bullet cameras can still hold impressive lenses. Mini bullet cameras have room for wide-angle lenses for lots of close-up detail.

High-Resolution Footage & Night Vision

Many if not most modern bullet cameras have HD resolution cameras, and night vision. (Color night vision at that - at least when there's a bit of light to work with). You can find cameras with resolutions between 2 and 8 megapixels. These features are perfect for IDing vehicles with license plate recognition software.

Outdoor Bullet Cameras Are Weatherproof

We offer outdoor bullet cameras designed for all conditions. They are weatherproof, water-resistant, and many offer night vision. These features help you keep your facility safe day and night, in any weather.

Easy To See

A hidden security camera isn't always the best choice. Bullet cameras have large, bulky designs that are easy to see. Criminals are more likely to leave your property after they notice your outdoor bullet cameras. In the other sense, these cameras make things very easy to see, with a crisp, sharp and clear HD resolution.

Who Needs Bullet Cameras?

Your security system should be a unique design that meets your exact needs. Most facilities benefit from bullet cameras. These cameras are great for outdoor spaces, entrances, exits, and known vulnerabilities. We especially recommend bullet cameras for the following:

  • Parking lots (many bullet cameras can read license plates)
  • Airports
  • Traffic intersections
  • Entrances and exits
  • Hotels
  • Hospitals
  • Gas stations
  • Libraries
  • Schools
  • City Halls and other public buildings
  • Manufacturing plants
  • Warehouses
  • Shipping centers

Bullet Camera Features

Bullet cameras are a popular choice for commercial, agricultural, public, and private facilities. These cameras offer many benefits and you can use them in many different situations.

Simple To Adjust

Bullet camera mounting equipment is on the outside of the camera body. It's easy to change the angle and point the camera at something new. Just move the camera by hand and turn it where you want to record. Some cameras also offer pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ). This feature lets you digitally control where the camera aims. You can track almost anything in range with PTZ cameras.

Longer Range

Bullet cameras have a longer range than many other kinds of security cameras. This means that a bullet camera can record things further away than other cameras can. Bullet cameras are perfect for monitoring long, large areas. We recommend bullet cameras for outdoor spaces, hallways, manufacturing floors, retail centers, and more.

Analog and IP Bullet Cameras

We carry bullet cameras to fit any security system. Analog models record security footage directly to a DVR or other recorder at your location. These cameras are also called closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras. That's because the cameras and recorder form a completely closed circuit. We also offer Internet protocol (IP) bullet cameras. These wireless models send video wirelessly to the storage location. You can choose between sending footage to an on-site DVR recorder or to online, cloud-based digital storage. IP cameras can provide live security feeds even when you're offsite.
