This outdoor (rated at IP65) camera has a DC-drive varifocal lens
and an automatic mechanical IR filter that makes your picture
bright and clear during daylight hours (with color video) and
nighttime when the infrared sub-system kicks in (when the camera
switches to black-and-white mode).
night time comes, forty infrared LEDs send a blast of IR light
up to 65' away from the camera. This automatic system lets the
camera operate in ZERO visible light. Picking up intruders in
absolute darkness is a standard function for this camera.
Video quality remains high when switching to infrared mode
thanks to a mechanical IR filter that reduces focus shift, and a
manual varifocal lens allows the user to zero-in on exactly what
they wish to monitor.
On-Screen Display (OSD) Menu
Advanced functions include several levels of backlight
compensation, white balance and shutter speed. Slow shutter
settings are possible using the Sens Up option. All of these
options and more can be set using the mini-joystick (control
nub) on the attached cable.

Hard metal construction is the first line of defense against
vandals. The second is a jointed elbow hinge, which makes it
impossible for would-be vandals to physically move the camera
and change its aim. Once the aim is set and the elbow joint
locked down (using the included tools), nothing short of
breaking the bracket will move the camera.
