Evaluation

One outstanding feature of this security camera is that it eliminates distortion of the subject by positioning a lens inside a spherical exterior cover. Moreover, this also ensures an extra 20 degree viewing angle upwards, and makes for a design that improves upon the area monitored. As for its installation locations, it has been furnished with an arm that projects out away from wall surfaces so that it is adaptable to spaces without ceilings. For the overall design, it has a simple design around the basic tone of matte white that blends in naturally with its environment.
