Key Features
• Brilliant video quality
The network camera offers the highly efficient H.264 video compression, which drastically reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image quality. Motion JPEG is also supported for increased flexibility.
• Dual or Triple Streams
The network camera can deliver dual or triple video streams simultaneously at full
frame rate in all resolutions up to Full-HD (1920 x 1080p) using Motion H.264 and
JPEG. This means that several video streams can be configured with different compression formats, resolutions and frame rates for different needs.
• Image setting adjustment
The network camera also enables users to adjust image settings such as contrast,
brightness and saturation to improve images before encoding takes place.
• Intelligent video capabilities
The network camera includes intelligent capabilities such as enhanced video motion
detection. The network cameras external inputs and outputs can be connected to devices such as sensors and relays, enabling the system to react to alarms and activate
lights or open/close doors.
• Improved Security
The network camera logs all user access, and lists currently connected users. Also, its
full frame rate video can be provided over HTTPS.
• PoE (Power over Ethernet)
This network camera can be powered through PoE, which simplifies installation since
only one cable is needed for carrying power, as well as video controls.
• ONVIF Certificate
This is a global interface standard that makes it easier for end users, integrators, consultants, and manufacturers to take advantage of the possibilities offered by network
video technology. ONVIF enables interoperability between different vendor products,
increased flexibility, reduced cost, and future-proof systems.
• Micro-SD Recording support
The network camera also supports a Micro-SD memory slot for local recording with
removable storage.
• Audio support
The network camera also supports two-way audio.
The dome camera is for use in surface or pendant mounting applications, and the mounting
member must be capable of supporting loads of up to 10 lb (4.5 kg). (Pendant mounting
must use pendant mount accessory.)
The dome cameras mounting bracket should be attached to a structural object, such as hard
wood, wall stud or ceiling rafter that supports the weight of the dome camera.
CAUTION: A silicone rubber sealant must be applied to seal the housing to secure waterproofing.
Locking Dome Camera

4. Align the locking tab on the bracket and the locking slot on the base of the dome (Figure D).
5. Turn the dome to the counterclockwise about 10 degree to the locked position (Figure E).
CAUTION: Before installing mounting bracket to surface pre-adjust the four mounting
screws ”A” on the base of the dome camera to best match the mounting bracket
locked position. Unscrew the locking screw on the side of the dome’s base and
fit the tab of the mounting bracket into the locking slot. Screws ”A” should not
be too tight or too loose when the dome is in the locked position. After setting
the proper positions of screws ”A” remove the mounting bracket and install it
to the proper surface. If it is too difficult to lock the dome in position after the
mounting bracket has been installed readjust the screws ”A” by unscrewing
them a small amount and try to install dome camera again.
