The Differences Between Outdoor and Indoor Security Cameras

There are a number of differences between outdoor and indoor security cameras. First and foremost as their names suggest there exists significant distinction on where they are supposed to be mounted. The environmental elements outside and those inside a house do vary, thus bringing major differences between how they are made to withstand such conditions.

The outdoor camera needs to work under different lighting condition from the indoor security camera, given that between day and night there is an existing variation in light. At night the outdoor camera needs to capture a more detailed video in a less illuminated condition and therefore it has to be more powerful than its counterpart with regard to how it functions, whereby the indoor camera needs to work within specific confines in a constant environment.

Externally these two types of cameras also differ. Since outdoor cameras are exposed to potential adverse weather conditions they not only have to be waterproof but also stronger and sturdier than indoor models. This requires that the frame or body of the former be made of metal, while the latter, which can afford to be weaker, is made out of plastic. The difference in materials of course results in a difference of price and since metal is more expensive than plastic, outdoor cameras are more costly than indoor ones. Lastly outdoor cameras tend to be the larger of the two.
