The VIVOTEK SF8174V 5MP Outdoor Day/Night Vandal-Resistant Panoramic PTZ Network Dome Camera with Fisheye Lens features a 5MP resolution 1/2.5" progressive CMOS sensor that offers high-quality image. Equipped with a fisheye lens for 360° surround view (ceiling/floor/table mount) without blind spots, the camera provides coverage of wide and open areas such as airports, shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores, offices, and more.

The camera comes with a removable IR-cut filter, maintaining clear images 24 hours a day.
