Building a Geovision DVR can be done in a lot of ways but for Camera Security Now there is only one way it will be done. (Continued...)
Overt Vs. CovertDepending on the nature of your surveillance, you may be in the market for a security system that is either very obvious in its presence, or is hidden so that people are unaware of the surveillance. Bullet cameras tend to be more overt in their surveillance, so if you want to install a system to both surveil and discourage theft or vandalism, then using bullet cameras is the way to go. With a bullet cam it is easy to discern what the camera is surveilling, letting people know that any questionable behavior around that area will be seen.
Dome cameras on the other hand offer a more covert approach, since the camera itself is housed inside a dome that does not allow a person to discern the direction of the camera. These cameras are great for letting people know there is video surveillance, but not what precisely is being surveilled.

Mounting & PointingMounting is often an issue when selecting cameras for a security system. Bullet cameras are far easier to mount than dome cameras, since they are essentially point-and-shoot. Just mount the camera with screws, and point the camera toward what you want to surveil. Dome cameras on the other hand tend to be more difficult to mount, since you have extra parts and casing to deal with. Dome cameras are also more difficult to change the direction of, since they require a dismounting in order to do it.

CostOn matters of cost the bullet camera definitely wins. Since the bullet cam is just the camera itself and the mount piece, and the dome cam requires extra parts and casing, the bullet camera is almost always less expensive then the dome.
