High Definition Video
The outdoor Axis P3214-VE camera comes with 720p high definition resolution, an important feature for recording surveillance video with a high level of detail. HD is your best option when using security cameras for facial recognition, to read license plates on cars in parking lots, and when submitting video as evidence of a crime because it records video in a large detailed file compared to standard cameras.
Outdoor, Vandal-proof Housing
Securing the outside of a building is just as important to security as monitoring the expensive equipment inside. Outdoor surveillance allows you to observe parking lots and garages, public walkways, alleys, and more. To record outdoor video and stay safe from vandals, the P3214-VE has a specialized housing:
- IP66-rated for outdoor protection from rain, snow, dust, hail, and extreme temperatures
- IK10-rated for vandal protection, able to withstand direct impacts and shocks
In addition to securing the outside of your building, you should use a camera that can record in low light so your business is protected at night. The P3214-V has a built-in IR-cut filter for day/night recording, which will block or allow the infrared light to enter the camera:
- To record color video, the IR-cut filter is in place to filter out the IR light
- To record black/white video the camera needs to be more sensitive to light levels, so the IR-filter moves out of the way to allow the light in—IR light isn't visible to the human eye, but the camera's image sensor can see and use it to record
