Outdoor IP Dome IR Ultra Low-Light 1080p (2.8 - 12 mm) (Art. no. IPCA72520)

We expressly recommend having this product installed by a certified specialist.

This 2megapixel IP dome camera excels when it comes to colour recordings in low lighting conditions thanks to its special ultra-low-light function. Its 1920x1080pixel resolution (2MPx) in 1080p guarantees an excellent overview of even expansive areas.

Robust, full HD outdoor surveillance in low lighting conditions
The weatherproof IP66 housing with IK10 shock resistance protects against tampering and vandalism. Integrated IR LEDs provide excellent images both during the day and at night. The ultra-low-light function ensures that poorly lit locations (such as underground parking garages, car parks and production halls) are recorded optimally in colour mode. Glare is compensated for and state-of-the-art motion detection technology put to use (in entrance areas and at access points).

Unbeatable overview and freely controllable angle of view
The autofocus motorised zoom lens can be adjusted to the desired angle of view at the touch of a button. Its focal length of between 2.8 and 12mm covers a range of between 24° and 78° (3.25x optical zoom).

Decentralised video content analysis (VCA) – in the camera itself
The dome offers VCA functions such as tripwires, intrusion detection and face detection, all without the need for any VMS software. This saves on bandwidth, hard disk space and additional costs, while also making the evaluation of recordings faster.

Easy set-up – innovative user management
The practical installation wizard ensures quick and easy set-up. Innovative user management also facilitates user authorisation configuration that is tailored to your individual security needs.

Suitable accessories:
A wall bracket (TVAC31430) is available for flush mounting the dome camera in a horizontal position, with protected, internal cabling.

The effective IR range will depend on the installation location. If there are surfaces that absorb light or no objects that reflect IR light in the field of view, the IR range will be reduced and/or the video image will be too dark. Reflective objects in the immediate vicinity of the camera (e.g. roof gutter or wall) may also result in the reflection of IR light, which can disturb the image.
