Security Camera Housings
Depending on the environment your camera will be working in, a Security Camera Housing will be needed. Any standard box camera that is mounted outdoors will be subjected to the elements, and therefore should be protected. There are a few types of camera housings available. The most common security camera housing used is a standard housing. If your CCTV Camera will be working in extremely cold weather, you will want to choose a camera housing that has a built-in heater and blower. This will prevent condensation from forming inside the housing and fogging up your camera lens. If you are using your surveillance system in an environment where there are potentially flammable or explosive vapors, you would install your box camera in an explosion-proof housing. This will prevent any of the vapors from coming into contact with the electrical components of the security camera, which could result in ignition.
