Honeywell Security Cameras: The Top 5 Models 

Honeywell’s wide portfolio of camera options aims to offer customers enough choices so they can find exactly what they are looking for. The following cameras are some of the most popular options among customers. 

1. HC30WB2R1 IP Bullet Camera


WDR IR IP is a camera in the 30 series line of 2MP and 5MP IP bullet cameras. These bullet cameras have a progressive image scanner for motion, intrusion, and people detection offering the best picture clarity. Besides flexible system integration and secure data transmission, this solution performs well in low light and is a possible outdoor camera option.


2. HDZ302DE, HDZ302D & HDZ302DIN Indoor/Outdoor IP Cameras

Honeywell’s camera and dome product line is one of the broadest and most complete in the industry. The HDZ302D line is part of a growing product line that offers PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom), HD video, 30x zoom, and surveillance options both indoor or outdoor. The cameras allow for various mounting options and are suitable for large scale surveillance. Areas such as roadways, airports, schools and campuses would benefit from a Honeywell PTZ camera as they are very adaptable. The name differences highlight the use type. "IN" for indoors, E and HDZ302DE for outdoor whereas "E" stands higher temperatures.


3. HD273X Performance Series IR Minidome Camera

These dome cameras use the latest analog camera technology which deliver a noticeable improvement in picture quality. Besides being sharp and ultra-high resolution, the video images include vivid color pictures during the day and clear black and white images at night. Able to function well indoors or outdoors, this surveillance solution includes weatherproof, low light, and vandal resistant features. 


4. DWDR IR IP Rugged Fisheye Camera

The fisheye camera is one of the best Honeywell outdoor camera options. The lens produces glare-free images with vivid colors and incomparable picture clarity. The simplistic design of the camera offers the widest angle of view possible for surveillance and makes the camera suitable for a range of locations. Additionally, the design allows for maximum protection against the elements whether it be dust, dirt, water, or extreme temperatures. 

5. WDR ExitView IP Cameras

Focused on quality and reliability, Honeywell makes a line of discreet IP cameras designed to be a cost effective solution to loss prevention, inventory shrinkage, and robbery. This surveillance solution looks exactly like a normal height strip mounted next to a door, but instead features cameras with high picture clarity, low light performance, and remote monitoring options. The ExitView is most useful in retail locations, convenience stores, or small businesses. 

Honeywell Security Cameras: Pricing 

The prices of Honeywell cameras fluctuate depending on the size, type, and quality of the camera. In general, cameras range between $100 to $500, with some priced well over $1000 such as the rugged fisheye camera. The majority of Honeywell dome cameras start around $60, with some costing upwards of around $160. Bullet cameras have a larger range, tending to start around $75 and going upwards of $600.  

In terms of quality and reliability the cameras have good price/quality ratio but, if you're looking for a security system that requires a lower amount of maintenance, we would suggest a camera system that can be easily integrated with the rest of the security hardware, like, for instance, the Cisco Meraki cameras.
