I have a channel vision dvd, with 2 6026 HD Waterproof Outdoor IR Bullet. The problem I'm having is at night time the picture isn't that clear. It's grainy and I can't see the person that good. I had talk to channel vision, and they said some lighting could help as well an IR Illuminator could work. Now they are telling me that the 1.3 MP Mini Vandal Proof IP Dome Camera – 6532 should be ok.

Is this an IP camera that has it's own network or is it an analog camera, and would it work with my DVR. if not could I use any analog camera with a better resolution and optical.

What I'm looking for is better pictures quality, so I can see better at night time. Without calling a security company to reinstall a new system,as I could do that.

If I get new camera's what are better to buy Bullets or Dome camera's.  What would be a good brand to buy, or does it make any difference.

Infrared Night Vision is usually not as clear as daytime or conventional illumination. A 1.3 MP camera is an IP camera. You would not be able to record that with a DVR unless it is a a Hybrid DVR which can record both Analog and IP. You can put an SD card into the camera and just record to that. The resolution of the video, especially during the day will have a dramatic improvement. For the outdoors I recommend bullets since they are usually more weatherproof.
