Using the Indoor Dome Housing
When using the indoor dome housing, it is recommended you use with the VB-M40B (black model) 
to reduce the camera's visibility and reflection.
 The angle of view is slightly wider when using the dome housing.
 Grime on the dome may reduce image quality. Periodic cleaning is recommended. Use a soft cloth 
moistened with water or diluted neutral detergent to wipe away grime, then wipe dry
