External Dome CCTV Camera, Proper Dome Enclosure, Works Day and Night, Free Delivery, £49.97 - iView Cameras

I have been looking for good value external / weatherproof CCTV cameras that are vandal proof domes. Most of the dome cameras do not come with a traditional dome enclosure, so you can still easily see…

I purchased 4 of these cameras and a DVR for my unit from Iview Cameras a couple of years ago and they have worked faultlessly. The 4mm lens covers a wide area and the picture quality is decent. I had purchased 4 other vandal domes from another local company at almost twice the price and while rated at 550TVL I wouldn't say the picture is any better and the construction isn't as heavy duty. Definitely some heat here


That's good to know! People that have conducted a search for external vandal dome cameras of this type that provide suitable night vision will probably see some value in this post.

4mm lens is very poor.
See :here for lens sizes.


Can you suggest a dome camera (one with an enclosure so that you can't where the camera is pointing) for a comparable price?

I definitely prefer this camera (it is an IR camera suitable for outdoor use ... don't confuse with other traditional dome cameras that are mainly for indoor) - http://www.maplin.co.uk/xvision-540-tvl-15m-ir-vandalresistant-dome-camera-535995 ... Alas, it's nearly twice the price.


This is a much better option, can be had at Ebuyer for £79.99 each delivery free, only two left !
orHERE, also at £79.99 and free delivery if buying more than one.

With regard to "Vandal proof? Bet I could break it, and that's just trying to install it!"

This is from the spec of the Xvision 540TVL on the safety savers web link above:
The camera is tamper resistant as it has a dome cover to protect it from tampering and is also Vandal Resistant as the base is made from high strength metal and the dome is made from impact resistant polycarbonate, giving the camera the ability to withstand a blow from a 10 pound sledgehammer.


I guess you get what you pay for.....


Good post. I have already looked at the camera you suggested and I agree it is an excellent option.

I've read that dome cameras with internal IR emitters like this use a foam washer around the lens to try to block the IR reflections, and that this is usually not 100% effective.

You might also want to check weather the IR emitters emit any visible light, as a dull orange halo would make the camera's position stand out in the dark. Or else use a separate IR source.

I've never found it difficult to spot where dome cameras are pointing, and I prefer the eyeball style "domes" myself, the better ones can be locked in position with a grub screw to stop people redirecting their view. I would also pay a bit extra for 1/3" sony CCDs, as they should give a less noisy image, as well as working in colour at slightly lower light levels. If you need cheap, it's worth looking on ebay, providing you are very selective with supplier.I've sourced pretty decent low cost 1/3" sony ccd CCTV cameras off ebay for under £25 each, their image quality was actually much better than the existing cameras in the system.
