The fisheye security camera is one of the latest and greatest offerings found in the security and surveillance industry. Capable of full 360-degree views (including a VR mode), fisheye IP dome cameras are the ultimate solution for businesses in need of employee monitoring or anyone looking for 360º surveillance.
Still, somehow, the fisheye camera is still an underappreciated and underutilized aspect of the surveillance industry. However, we are extremely proud to feature this style of camera and highlight some of its keys uses.

Best Places to Use a Fisheye Security Camera
Using a fisheye lens is a crafty, useful way to view wide angles across an expansive setting. Often used in photography, the curves cover a much larger area than normal without having to change the direction of where the lens is pointed.
This can be extremely useful in settings like warehouses, businesses, open offices, or other open indoor locations. Since the fisheye camera provides a complete 360-degree view, there really is no angle left unmonitored, leaving nowhere to escape surveillance.
Some examples of the most common places to utilize security and surveillance cameras equipped with a fisheye lens include:
- Indoor & Outdoor Warehouses
- Retail Stores & Grocery Stores
- Large Residences
- Public Transportation
- Parking Lots & Garages
- Long Hallways & Corridors
- Open Storage Facilities
- Marinas & Boat Yards
The list goes on as the majority of open locations with a high enough ceiling can benefit from this technology. An important factor to remember, though, is mounting the camera on a ceiling is necessary to acquire a full view.
In other words, the fisheye security camera is inefficient when installed in or near a corner. This and lighting play a significant role in the ability of the fisheye lens to work as it should. (Note: There are plenty of ways around this that security camera and surveillance equipment installation experts can help with.)

One piece of advice that you will always hear accompany anyone recommending a fisheye security camera is that the better the resolution, the better the effect.
