Bosch NDE-5503-AL Overview

The FLEXIDOME 5000i 5MP Vandal-Resistant Outdoor Network Dome Camera from Bosch comes with a 1/2.9" CMOS progressive scan sensor and 3-10mm AVF (Automatic Varifocal) lens for capturing videos at a maximum resolution of 3072 x 1728. The camera comes with an auto zoom/focus lens wizard that can be activated from PC or on-board camera push button. This day/night camera provides 24-hour surveillance thanks to a removable IR cut filter and built-in IR illuminators for night vision up to 98'.

The camera features built-in Essential Video Analytics that trigger relevant alerts and quickly retrieves data. It also features an integrated gyro/accelerometer sensor that automatically corrects image orientation in steps of 90° if the camera is mounted at right angles or upside-down. The sensor image can also be rotated manually through steps of 90°. Enclosed in an IP66-rated weather-resistant and IK10-rated vandal-resistant housing, the camera is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications.
