The feature-packed Panasonic WV-NW502S/15 Vandal-Resistant Fixed Dome HD Network Camera (NTSC) is a great choice for surveillance in high-sensitivity areas. This dome camera‘s advanced imaging features like Super Dynamic and ABS (Adaptive Black Stretch) ensure that you get great HD footage even in challenging lighting conditions. In addition, this intelligent camera makes sure you not only capture intruders on surveillance footage, but also identify them with the human face detection feature.

With a 1/3” interline transfer CCD sensor and 15 to 50mm auto-iris varifocal lens, this network camera captures clear images at F1.2, even in locations with a minimum illumination of 0.08 lux (B&W). In low light conditions, the camera switches from color to B/W mode, ensuring that you don’t miss any activity even in the absence of light. Furthermore, the auto back focus feature auto-adjusts the focus to ensure clear images, eliminating the need for you to adjust the focus of the camera on installation.

This smart network camera can record footage in the background as multiple H.264 (high profile) and JPEG streams thanks to Panasonic’s UniPhier System LSI platform. Moreover, H.264 compression technology facilitates reduced bandwidth usage and file size, offering high-quality and high-resolution images. A built-in SD / SDHC memory card slot can be used (SD / SDHC card not included) for local storage or backup of footage and customized camera settings in case of a network failure.

In addition to ensuring security of your premises by detecting even the intruders’ motion, this camera protects high-sensitivity areas in your premises by concealing them from being captured thanks to the privacy masking feature. Up to 8 zones can be programmed to appear as grey or mosaic images in the FoV for areas where you don’t require video surveillance.

Rated IP66, the camera resists the entry of water and dust particles and also offers protection from vandalism. Moreover, a built-in dehumidifier prevents the viewing window from fogging, so you get uninterrupted surveillance even in humid environments.
