The VD5M captures video up to a resolution of 5MP @ 15 FPS, which is 2592x1944 pixels. To put this in perspective, FHD (Full High Definition) is 2 megapixels, or 1920x1080 pixels. Every pixel added to your camera's picture gives you a higher image quality and more detail. So at 5MP, you're going to get a crisper, cleaner, and more detailed image than with your average camera.
2.8MM FIXED LENS
The VD5M has a 2.8mm Fixed Lens. That means it’s fixed at one length; it can't optically zoom in and out. The longer the focal length on a fixed lens camera, the more zoomed in it is and the more close-up detail you'll be able to see. But the shorter the focal length, the wider the field of view and the more area your surveillance will cover.
The VD5M has a fixed length of 2.8mm, giving it a horizontal field of view of 92°.
IP66 WEATHERPROOF RATING
This camera has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 66. This means the camera is completely protected from dust and other solid particles (the first six). It can also withstand powerful streams of water jets from any direction (the second six).
Rest assured that when you install your camera outside, it will have no problem braving the toughest of storms.
IK10 VANDALPROOF RATING
The VD5M has an Impact Protection (IK) rating of 10, which is as high as the scale goes. If a vandal wants to try to bust open this camera, more power to them. Literally, they're going to need a lot more power, because this thing is practically indestructible. That's why these dome-style cameras are often called vandal-proof domes, or vandal domes for short.
100' NIGHT VISION IR RANGE
When the sun goes down or the lights go out, this camera switches on its own onboard infrared LED lights. These lights, which are invisible to the human eye, allow the camera to continue functioning and recording video 24/7, day or night. And since its IR range covers up to 100 feet, you're not going to miss anything that happens on your camera's feeds, even if it happens in pitch-black darkness.
As a part of our R-Series line, this camera is geared for easier operation. You can even instantly view your camera’s video feeds by scanning the QR code with your phone. No activation, no editing IP addresses, no advanced coding or port forwarding. Even if you’ve never touched a security camera before, you’ll be able to figure out the mobile app in no time at all.
Also view your cameras from your computer using the CamViewer application for Windows and Mac. These remote viewing options allow you to use this as a standalone camera.
If you want to add this camera to a security system already set up, that’s no problem. This camera complies with the protocols set by the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF). This means, as long as your current recorder is ONVIF compatible, you’ll be able to set this camera up with your current system in no time at all.
