Bullet security cameras are cameras that offer a nice, quality picture in a weatherproof housing. The cameras have wide-angle viewing but are generally set in position and do not rotate or offer the ability to scan an area like their dome camera counterparts. Bullet-style security cameras range in price depending on their scope, number of available cameras and channels, and ability to provide WiFi app viewing. Before you buy, consider the importance of ease of set up vs. durability. A hard-wired system will tend to be more reliable over a longer period of time but will likely cost you a lot more. You can purchase inexpensive individual bullet cameras that can be viewed through your smartphone app and are compatible with an Alexa voice assistant. These systems may also offer you a two-way audio option. Another feature to carefully consider is video storage. Some systems do not come with a hard drive.
