Despite its relatively simple concept, a convex mirror is an essential element in securing a variety of different homes and businesses.
A convex mirror, sometimes called a fisheye or blind spot mirror, is simply a dome or lens shaped mirror that reflects light in multiple directions rather than just one. Because of this, a convex mirror gives you a very wide field of view. Safety and visibility go hand in hand. Like an animal keeping watch in order to warn the group, the more we are able to see danger, the better we can be at avoiding it. It may be surprising to know that such a low tech device can be found as part of the security of many businesses and homes, but where specifically are they used and do they make a real difference?
Convex mirrors are used in a number of places. In fact, they may be so common that you don’t even notice them:
Indoor or Outdoor
One of the first things you need to clarify is whether you need a convex mirror for indoor or outdoor use. Depending on where the convex mirror will be installed depends on the type of mirror that will suit you best.
