Bullet Camera Usage Statistics

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jun 20, 2014

Bullet cameras seemingly came from nowhere. Only a few years ago, IP bullets were rare, with very limited options. Now, nearly every major manufacturer sells this form factor in varying sizes and feature sets.

With box cameras on the way down and domes up, how much are bullet cameras actually being used? For what applications?

Here we share results from our exclusive integrator surveys to answer these questions.
