A waterproof camera is a security camera that has a certain degree of weather resistance. In practice, this means whether the camera can get damp under a shelter or can be placed directly in extreme conditions such as at sea with sand and water. We offer various waterproof surveillance cameras for sale in our webshop which can be purchased directly online. On this page we will further discuss things that you should pay attention to when selecting the best waterproof camera for your situation.
What is the waterproof and IP rating of a security camera?
A waterproof camera is divided into different classes based on the IP rating. IP rating stands for International protection range and means to what extent the camera is protected against external influences such as rain and dust. the higher the rating, the better protected. A waterproof camera has a minimum IP rating of IP54, which means dust-resistant and splash-proof.
Models of waterproof surveillance cameras
Although there are fewer models of waterproof cameras than regular security cameras, there is still plenty to choose from. A waterproof camera model can be selected depending on the location where the camera is to be placed.
Waterproof dome camera
A dome camera model owes its name to the round shape of the camera. this model is usually waterproof and also available in Vandalproof form with a high waterproof rating.
Bullet waterproof camera
A bullet camera is usually IP66 waterproof, which means that it is protected against rainwater and dust. When an even higher IP rating is required, extra housings are sometimes placed around a camera in the form of a bullet. In practice, a box camera with the housing is used here.
PTZ waterproof camera
A pan tilt zoom camera is also available in a waterproof version and can then be hung outside on a facade. Because this camera can rotate and zoom, these are popular waterproof camera models for both the private and business market.
