This infrared equipped dome camera has a varifocal lens
coupled with a high resolution video sensor
that work together to provide a crisp, sharp image at 540 TV lines.

Along with its many other technological enhancements, the ECL-5HIM dome
camera is equipped with a bright
white deterrence LED that can be set to a flashing state (or
turned off). This bright "strobe" makes the camera impossible to
overlook, especially at night. It also doubles as a power
indicator and can draw attention to your business or location at
night. When would-be criminals realize a building or room has
CCTV cameras, they are likely to look elsewhere for an easier
"IR mode" is automatic and turns on when the light level drops
to a preset threshold. The infrared LEDs turn on and the camera
switches to IR mode. This camera has two enhancements that
protect video quality at this time - SMART LED control and a
mechanical IR filter.
SMART LED Control
SMART LED control is built into the camera's video processing
chipset. It detects the
amount of infrared light on the subject and turns IR LEDS on/off
as necessary to keep video quality high. To little or too much IR
(washout) is never a problem with
Mechanical IR Filter
When a camera switches
between normal mode and IR mode the wavelength of light reaching
the camera optics changes. This wavelength alteration causes a
phenomenon known as "focus shift" and manifests itself as a
slightly out-of-focus image. By employing a mechanical IR filter
focus shift is corrected.
