The white Discover 500 Mini-Dome Outdoor Camera with Varifocal Lens from American Dynamics captures clear images at a resolution of up to 700 TVL. It is easy to setup, and offers a variety of mounting options. With the True Day/Night mode, this mini-dome camera delivers true color reproduction under a variety of light sources. Sony's Effio technology enables this camera to capture natural, crisp, high-definition videos. This camera offers IR illuminators for operation in scenes of less than 0.5 lux, even in complete darkness.

This outdoor dome camera features an intuitive OSD (On-Screen Display) menu to configure and adjust various camera settings making the setup quick and easy. You can adjust the exposure, white balance, backlight compensation, Day/Night mode selection, privacy zones, etc. The pivoting 3-axis gimbal allows you to easily position the camera in the exact angle for most applications. It also allows you to make critical focus and focal length improvements.

The high-impact vandal-resistant IP66-rated dome housing of this outdoor mini-dome camera is built to withstand harsh environments and protect against dust and other debris, and water damage. A heater (sold separately) helps regulate the camera temperature in cold weather.
