Vandal Proof Security Cameras

Vandal proof security cameras are ruggedly built to withstand direct and glancing blows to their solid metal housings and tough poly-carbonate lens covers. Vandal proof cameras are mostly used in systems that monitor areas prone to vandalism and burglary. These cameras also make it difficult for unwanted adjustments to be made to the camera's field of view by requiring a special tool to access the inside of the vandal proof camera housing.

What are vandal proof cameras

Vandal proof security cameras are cameras that are built with rugged materials so they can withstand glancing and/or direct impacts from objects of different weights and varying forces. That makes these cameras a perfect choice to install in areas that are known for vandalism or property damage. Vandal resistant cameras prevent people from tampering with the camera and can take a beating without breaking so you record the vandals and criminals on video.

 

Vandalproof CCTV cameras typically come with the following:

  • Solid metal camera mounting brackets
  • Reinforced metal (or hardened plastic) camera housings
  • Impact resistant polycarbonate lens covers
