The whole idea in their design is to ensure maximum security protection for the visitors and the staff without the disturbing look of surveillance cameras. At such places, the discrete look of security systems is of great importance.

These security cameras, like infrared cameras, are made in various designs, provide different image quality and include fixed or varifocal lenses.

Fixed dome cameras, according to technology used, are analog, IP based or IP based mega-pixel. This is essential for recorded image quality.

Fixed dome cameras can be placed in domes, suitable for external installation, although this is not their usual area of installation.

Fixed or varifocal lenses are included in fixed dome cameras. The first one are easier to install and set-up, while the second type are not strictly bound with the security area because they have adjustable angle of view.
