Not all cameras need to stand out. Sometimes there are situations where it is better that it is not clearly visible that there is a security camera. Then it is better to opt for inconspicuous security cameras. We have various cameras in our range which can be ordered online or for sale in one of our stores. To help you select the best unobtrusive security camera, we have listed below some points that you should pay attention to.
When to choose an unobtrusive security camera?
Because in most situations a security camera should also have a deterrent effect, it must stand out. This can be achieved by hanging a contrasting color camera, placing a camera well in view or hanging a camera of a larger size. The other way around is the case with inconspicuous cameras where you can make them less noticeable later by taking social security into account.
Color of an unobtrusive camera
By choosing a camera whose color is the same or strongly matches the background on which you place the security camera, it makes it a lot more inconspicuous.
Size of an unobtrusive camera
Logically, with an inconspicuous camera, it is best to opt for a small model as possible. However, it is advisable to take a good look at whether the specifications you need, such as the number of meters of night vision, are still sufficient for the smaller model inconspicuous security camera.
Location and placement of an unobtrusive camera
For example, by placing a security camera under a gutter, it immediately stands out a lot less than on the side of your home or business premises. For example, it is good to see how and where the security cameras should be placed in order to remain as unobtrusive as possible.
Which models of unobtrusive surveillance cameras are there?
Most cameras that can be placed unobtrusively are dome security cameras. Due to the round shape and compact size, these are the smallest security camera model that still has all the functionality such as night vision and a high resolution. Besides dome cameras, there are also stand-alone cameras such as those for filming game that can be used. Because they have the camouflage colors of a tree or bushes, these security cameras are very unobtrusive.
What are the pros and cons?
The advantages of an inconspicuous security camera compared to one that is immediately noticeable are:
- Do not touch the face
An unobtrusive security camera does not detract from the appearance of your home, office building or other object.
- Less chance of being evaded
With an inconspicuous security camera, intruders will care less about whether they are being filmed and may therefore appear more recognizable.
Unfortunately, just like advantages, a solution also has disadvantages and with an inconspicuous security camera, these include.
- No deterrent effect
Much of the effectiveness of security cameras is measured by the absence of incidents. This is because, for example, a possible intruder prefers an object without camera surveillance. This is of course not the case with inconspicuous cameras.
