MainFeatures 1/3” 3 Megapixel CMOS sensor H.264 dual-stream encoding Internal Microphone & Speaker MicroSD card slot for up to 64GB internal recording 30fps @ 1080P (1920 x 1080) or 20fps @ 3MP (2048 x 1536) 4mm fixed focal lens (79° viewing angle) 2.8mm optional Day/Night IR Cut Filter IR LED advertised working distance 10m Powered by PoE or 12V 3D Digital Noise Reduction Digital Wide Dynamic Range & Backlight Compensation Free Smartphone apps available Two very popular request is to have a camera with not just 2 way audio, but an actual microphone and speaker built into the camera. Also popular on many people’s wishlist is a PIR motion detector that senses a live heat signature and is very accurate as compared to video motion detection that analyzes changes in pixels and can be easily triggered by a shadow, light or a breeze blowing magazine or plant. What makes this camera more unique is that its a day/night camera, meaning it has an IR cut filter to change to IR mode at night and has a bright IR LED that provides nearly invisible lighting indoors. Many of the competitors are day only cameras that rely on a very bright but annoying white LED to provide night vision. IR is much better and more practical in real life and can be used more discretely. The camera comes with a stand as shown in the picture above. You loosen the gray collar and it allows you to aim the camera as you wish. Use it sitting on a shelf, but the mount is very nice. You can remove the plastic cover at the base, and you can use screws to attach it to a wall, ceiling, angled or straight and the plastic base cover snaps back in to give it a nice clean look. The other feature this camera has is the ability to record to an microSD card and has full playback capabilities comparable to good NVR solutions with a calendar and timeline that can be scrubbed to find the event you are looking for. Alerts can be sent via e-mail if needed. The camera comes with a stand as shown in the picture above. You loosen the gray collar and it allows you to aim the camera as you wish.

With both PoE and WiFi. PoE works as you would expect and is the best way to use this camera if hardwiring is an option for you. With WiFi, the further you are from your WiFi source, the lower the frame rate gets at 3MP or 1080P. to get the full frame rate, you need to be fairly close to your WiFi router/access point. For me about one room away was the limit. Recordings to the SD card remain smooth as it’s independent of the network, You can use a PoE wall plug adapter to power the camera or a 12V power supply and it worked just as well. The advantage of a PoE power supply is you can go further distance form the power source without any significant power loss. The camera also has a feature in that you can connect to WiFi and PoE at the same time, each with separate IP address.
