Vandal-Resistant

Vandal-resistant cameras are designed to be rugged and tough so that they will continue working when subjected to rough treatment. The best vandal-resistant cameras will withstand direct blows to their housings and lens covers without breaking and without interrupting the video. Vandals will also find it next-to-impossible to open the camera’s housing to do damage or make any kind of alteration.

Criminals Are No Match For Pelco Cameras

Keeping people and property safe are high priorities for governments, businesses and schools. Criminals will try to disable video cameras by striking them with heavy objects or attempting to pry them open to damage or cover the lens. Pelco high-security cameras are designed to handle abuse and they are rated IK10 vandal-resistant.

Keep People Safe

Bullying and violent acts occur far too frequently in schools and other locations. Individuals who know there will be video proof of their crimes will think twice before harming other people.

Reduce Crime

Criminals want to disable security cameras to hide their identities and criminal activity. When their attempts to damage or destroy security cameras fail, crime in the area is reduced.

High Risk Areas Stay Protected

For areas where people and property are at high risk, making sure video surveillance is uninterrupted can save lives. Schools, retail stores, municipal buildings and other high risk areas benefit from vandal- resistant cameras that are designed to withstand direct blows to their housings and lens covers without breaking and without interrupting the video. Vandals also find it next-to-impossible to open the camera’s housing to do damage or make any kind of alteration. When an attempt is made to obscure the camera’s view, like spray painting, covering or moving the camera, the camera tamper detection analytics send an alarm to security personnel.

Uninterrupted Protection

Vandal resistant Pelco cameras are housed in sturdy metal enclosures with tamper resistant fasteners. Because vandals are unable to destroy or tamper with the security cameras, they provide constant coverage. All Pelco cameras come with camera tamper detection analytics that detect if the video is grossly changed, such as when a camera is spray painted, covered or moved.

Tamper-Proof Construction

High security corner mount Pelco cameras have rugged metal construction, anti-ligature, no grip surfaces and vandal-resistant fasteners. The cameras offer excellent low light performance and IR illumination for no-light operation and built-in microphones for added monitoring capability. They also have camera tamper detection video analytics.

Use Cases

Keeping Correctional Facilities Safe

Prisons, jails and other correctional facilities need constant surveillance of inmates. It isn’t feasible to have enough security personnel on the ground 24/7 to monitor the facility and perimeter, so security cameras need to be operational at all times. Prisoners and rogue employees may try to disable cameras to hide contraband and assaults. Pelco’s vandal-resistant cameras ensure activity is monitored and recorded even in low light situations. Built-in microphones provide additional situational awareness in high security corner mount models. Pelco cameras help correctional facilities meet PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) compliance by providing camera coverage for blind spots.
