20X 2 Megapixel IP Network PTZ Security Camera
  Review by DiMascio, Benny (Pennsylvania USA) on May 24, 2014
This is where the security camera PTZ start to get real. A 2 megapixel resolution camera with a 20X power zoom is outrageously accurate and clear. Low light sensitivity is fair both in color and in black and white. The camera comes with all the features that I guess most IP network cameras and PTZ cameras are expected to have but this one is a little unique in that you can program different tours for different time periods. The PTZ movements are also very quick. Quick enough I should think to qualify calling this a speed dome PTZ camera. If you encounter any problems installing, configuring or setting up this camera, Security Camera King has an excellent tech support department and in some cases they can do that for you even, remotely. Great quality camera and quality customer service and support equals a 5 star rating from me.

  Review by Bill Dreger on Mar 23, 2014
There is no analog PTZ that can beat a megapixel camera. This camera produces a video picture that is just incredible, and by the time you add the 20X power zoom to that, there is very little you can't distinguish. Actually the camera has a digital zoom of 16X to add to that but it is only truly helpful in the lowest digital zoom power, since like all digital zooms it's just interpolated pixels. The camera's minimum illumination is pretty good but not exceptional with the color mode low light sensitivity being rated at 1.8 Lux and the Black and White mode at 0.02 Lux. Aside from those good characteristics, excellent items I can think of include (again) the incredible clarity and detail of the 1080p video at 30 frames per second; it can be connected to and controlled by a standard DVR with an RS485 connection, and it comes with it's own wall mount and power supply. The camera case has a "safety" cable that is a small twisted wire that runs from the top of the camera to the mount to keep it from slipping and falling during setup or maintenance. There's one more thing that makes this camera well worth the price and I wish I could rate it separately. Security Camera King as an extremely helpful technical support department and if you have any questions (the manual isn't that great) call them. They will answer any questions you have and they will help you with any issue you have. I rate the tech support at 5 stars and the camera at 4.

  Review by S. Goetz, Stay Alert Security on Feb 07, 2014
Nice camera. Easy to install and easy for the client to operate. The 1080p resolution video is very clear and color correct with good definition. The CMOS sensor is pretty low light sensitive and produces a good picture both during the day and at night. The specs sheet says the minimum illumination is 1.8 lux in color and 0.02 lux in black and white, but I actually think the camera does better than that. The camera has a very good upper medium powered zoom lens at 20X. It also has a lot of features that make the camera extremely versatile for use in just about any situation. I especially like the safety wire cable from the camera casing to the mount. It makes it easier to feed the cables/pigtail through the mount after the camera mount has been installed.

  Review by Starks, John (North Dakota USA) on Jan 03, 2014
Quite an excellent camera with an amazing amount of detail in the recorded video. Two Megapixel resolution (1080p) and a 20X power zoom give you unprecedented detail. Low light sensitivity in color is fair with a rating of 1.8 Lux but switch the mode to black and white and the available light needed drops to only 0.02 Lux. This camera is used outside in a cold climate (temperature right now while I write this is 2 degrees Fahrenheit) and it does an excellent job. No fogging up or freezing and control movements are quick and precise. Time associated touring gives us the ability to cover different areas at different times which is perfect for covering our parking lot, loading areas, and entrances during different shift changes. This is a pretty large size camera and weighs a little over 10 pounds yet PTZ movements do not cause vibration in the recorded video provided that the (in our case) included wall mount is securely mounted. The OSD offers a vast array of features in addition to scan and touring functions and although Security Camera King doesn't mention it in the Description section, this camera has dual functionality in that it has the connections available to not only use it with an NVR but it can also be used with a DVR (it includes an RS485 connection for DVR control of the PTZ movements and a BNC video connection). The only down side I have found with this camera is that the user manual has a lot of room for improvement. However, whatever information is lacking in the manual can easily be obtained from Security Camera King's technical support department as they were more than willing to answer are questions and provide input to help us with the set up.

The clarity and definition of this camera is about the same as looking out your window with a pair of binoculars. Incredible detail and perfect picture quality this PTZ has worked great for us. You can actually unpack this camera from the shipping box, mount it and start using it right away without even fooling with any settings. What's even better is that you can operate the camera's On Screen Display on the fly and it is set up basically like Security Camera King's other menu systems (kind of like a simple Windows Explorer format) so it doesn't take much time to learn how to navigate around it. The mouse control of the PTZ functions is a nice way to eliminate the added cost of a PTZ controller and the camera responds well to the inputs. The only down side is that I'm not real fond of repeatedly drawing rectangles around objects or areas to get the camera to zoom in close, but that really is just a personal preference. The camera is a high performance, quality camera and it produces one heck of a nice video.

  Review by Manuel Corchado on Aug 11, 2013
I installed this camera myself and I am not a professional security camera installer. Actually, I'm more of a computer repairman and network administrator. Anyway, it was easy to mount and the camera works like a charm. Using the 20X zoom and the 1080p resolution you can see things that you could never see with a typical TVL type security camera. Not that we really need it to do that as we have this camera mounted outside in our lot allowing it to encompass a vast area instead. The camera comes with its own heater and blower too which is convenient for us. I've dealt with a lot of computer projects in my life and I am not afraid to admit that when I need to I'll contact a technical support department. Needless to say, I've dealt with many computer techs. I contacted Security Camera King's technical support department and I have to tell you they were like no other I have ever encountered. If consumers were exposed this type of service when they call about computers, networks, Internet, and cell phones for example they would be shocked! Security Camera King has a great bunch of techies working for them, they are very willing to help, and they definitely know there products inside and out.

  Review by Parmeter, William (Louisiana USA) on Aug 08, 2013
Here's the short end of my review right up front: I rate this camera at five stars.

I have been used to using our non-network video camera system for years and when the company decided to upgrade I had mixed emotions. Anticipation for something new and much more improved and anxiety over the fact that we were going network and I am not a computer person. I'm happy to report the anxiety was unnecessary as the Security Camera King IP Network system we purchased and installed worked better, more efficiently, and just as easy. We added this camera to the system recently after debating about whether we should use a PTZ camera or not.

The camera works very well. The 20X power optical zoom is excellent and is very clear. Couple that with the 1080p high definition resolution recording and there isn't much of anything as far as detail you could miss. We haven't had any video performance issues, the recordings are clear concise, and color correct. I must admit I did have some difficulty trying to understand the manual and get my settings done correctly but I quickly and easily resolved this by contacting your Security Camera King technical support department. Those guys are commendable. They do a good job, know their stuff, and were very helpful. Between the great efficiency and performance of this camera and the follow up support provided by your techs I'm confident in giving this camera a five star rating.

  Review by John Proctor on May 23, 2013
We first ordered this camera back in August of 2012 when Security Camera King had first listed it in their on line catalog. The camera was relatively easy to install (as far as network cameras go) and we have used it everyday since that time as an adjunct to the rest of our IP network megapixel camera system. There are only two "not exactly perfect" characteristics of this camera that we have discovered and even those aren't all that bad. I'll begin with them first, then talk about the positive features. This PTZ does not accept PoE or Power over the Ethernet, primarily I guess because it requires a 24 VAC power supply. However, that's no much of an issue because the camera comes with its own 24 VAC power supply transformer anyway. The second thing is that the camera works fine at night time but we have plenty of ambient artificial lighting. For the area that we cover. I can't speak to how well it works in total darkness but I have noticed it is rated at 1.8 Lux in color and 0.02 Lux in black and white. The color low light sensitivity isn't exactly the best, but like I said, with ambient artificial lighting, we have absolutely no problems. On the positive side, you can't find too many other PTZ cameras that can beat the quality of the color (or black and white) recording that this camera produces. The detail is actually shocking when you see if for the first time, especially if you are used to analog security cameras. The camera is pretty solid and rugged (it weighs about 11 pounds) and it includes a mini safety cable from the camera body case tot the mount to keep it from accidentally falling while servicing it at heights, which is a nice touch. The other characteristic that is outstanding about this camera is that if you currently have a DVR but are planning to switch to an NVR system in the future, this camera can work on both types of systems. It comes with BNC connectors for DVRs and an RJ45 connector for use with your network. A big camera like this one, at least the outdoor type with a built in heater and blower requires a 24 VAC power supply but that doesn't mean you can't use it on a 12 V system because I said before it comes with its own power supply. So far, this camera has made it through the end of summer, Fall, Winter, and most of Spring being used everyday and without any issues. Nice camera.

  Review by Long, Mark (Georgia USA) on Apr 22, 2013
This is a great camera! Had no problems with mounting and connecting the camera but I did need a little help with the set up. The camera produces a 1080p resolution video picture at a frame rate of 30 frames per second. Between this super high resolution and the optical 20X zoom lens the only way you couldn't identify an individual's face is if they had a mask on! We can easily scan our parking lot and based on the way the way we have the camera mounted we can easily zoom in on vehicle license plates to capture them as well. Even the secondary stream that is sent to the monitor albeit at "only" D1 resolution is still a better quality D1 video then I have seen out of most analog cameras. The camera has a lot of features and even has an analog BNC video output so you can actually monitor the camera with an analog DVR while recording maximum resolution and frame rate to an optional on board SD card. The camera has an On Screen Display menu that you can almost get lost in though, if you aren't careful. However, Security Camera King's technical support department walked me through the setup procedure and they were great too! I'd recommend this camera, and after the service I got from Security Camera King I would recommend them too!

The reviewer has last purchased this item on Apr 11, 2013
The quality and the equipment is a 5 the customer service is beyond that. Picture will knock your socks off. The controls are nice once you figure them out. They need to work on the instruction manual to make it less vague. But Daniel in tech customer service is the key to getting through that little problem of understanding. So they do have a solution, you just have to ask for help. And the hybrid DVR/NVR we got is very nice too.
