Advantages of having a bullet CCTV camera

Due to their size, the cameras can be easily hidden and can be installed in the most unobvious places.

Bullet cameras are installed facing down making them less likely to be blurred by light reflection or intentional blinding meant to obscure pictures.

Although the quality of the camera will depend on the price of the bullet CCTV device, the bullet cameras capture high-quality pictures. The wide-angle does not distort the picture. The cameras also capture high-quality images even in dark places due to the infrared sensors that can detect when to light up and when to go off.

Bullet cameras are versatile since they can be IP or analog depending on your choice.

They can withstand all weather conditions.
