    Connect to a Digital Video Recorder
    Old video surveillance systems used to require a remote access system, a camera multiplexer; a time-lapse VCR, and an unlimited supply of videotapes for remote viewing and digitally storing video from a multi-camera system. Now you can get the capabilities of all those products in one with aDigital Video Recorder (DVR). By connecting multiple cameras to a DVR, you will be able to record and review video footage of activity around your property. You can even remotely access your video footage using a Network Digital Video Recorder (NDVR).

    IR LEDs
    Infrared (IR) cameras can pick up images in total darkness. Most IR cameras send out IR light from light emitting diodes (LEDs), which can not be seen by the human eye. This light reflects from objects, which can then be picked up by the camera in low-light and no light areas. These images are seen in black & white rather than color. The greater the number of IR LED illuminators, the greater the power of the camera. The High Resolution Day/Night Waterproof 520 Line Bullet Camera has 48 IR LEDs.

    Lux rating is the amount of minimum illumination that a camera can have and still pick up an image, 0 being the lowest, or no light. So the closer the lux rating is to 0, the better the camera will operate in no light or low light situations. The High Resolution Day/Night Waterproof 520 Line Bullet Camera can pick up images in 0 lux with the LEDs on.

    Resolution is the amount of horizontal TV lines that make up a picture, so the higher the number of the resolution, the better clarity your picture will have. Note that the monitor or recording device you use must have a resolution equal to or greater than the resolution of the camera, as it will do you no good to have a camera that can output in 540 lines of resolution but have a monitor or recording devices that only picks up images at 300 lines of resolution. The High Resolution Day/Night Waterproof 520 Line Bullet Camera has 520 lines of resolution, essentially the same as broadcast television.

    FRANALDO -- east hampton, NY   5/22/2011
    has an amazing picture!!!!great night vision!!!! but the camera seems to have a pre-established zoom which is great for looking at long distances with perfect clarity but doesn't really capture wide view. The bracket on the camera also limits the angels you can focus on. I originally had over my door but it created blind spots so I use for license plate recognition and driveway monitoring at a distance most other camera couldn't do ( due to cameras high zoom). It has the best night vision of any camera I have bought on this site but also is most expensive. Another issue due to the zoom is spider webs. This camera is amazing but like everything there always is features that could be better.
