This is an HD-CVI 720p Indoor/Outdoor Dome Security Camera. HD-CVI is an amazing technology and is an affordable approach to High Definition as compared to IP. One of the major cost savings of HD-CVI is when you want to upgrade your CCTV analog system to HD. HD-CVI uses standard coax cable so there is no need for the added expense and hassle of re-wiring to Cat5. Also, there is no networking involved like there is with IP so you do not have to be an IT professional to figure out your system. If you are upgrading, all you need to do is replace your analog DVR with an HD-CVI DVR and swap out your old cameras for HD-CVI like this dome.
If this is your first system, HD-CVI is easy to install. All you need to do is plug the HD-CVI cameras into the back of the DVR using Siamese Cable, supply 12v DC power, and you are on your way to recording in High Definition. You will be amazed at the detail that an HD-CVI camera delivers.
This dome comes with a 1/3 inch CMOS image sensor which is responsible for the crisp detail. There is a 2.8 to 12mm manual zoom lens which gives you the ability to set the camera up for an overall view of your surroundings, or a close up view. We recommend using multiple cameras so that you see both an overall view and also close up. For example, in a parking lot, you might want to have one camera zoomed in on the entrance to the lot, another camera seeing the whole picture, and yet another camera zoomed in on people entering your building.
At night this camera can see up to 100 feet. With the OSD (On screen display) you can adjust the brightness and other settings. OSD is controlled through the DVR. Yet another benefit of HD-CVI!
12v DC power is required to power the camera. You can use a standard power supply or distribution box.
This camera comes with a 1 year warranty and free tech support.
