One of the things that distinguishes this camera is the audio capabilities.
What’s very clever on this camera is it takes line-in or mic-in.
I’ll go over some of the setup screens of interest.
After setting the IP address in SADP, you can change it again under Network, but since that’s done, the next step may be configuring the ports if you want to access the cameras from the internet.
This controls the frames per second setting under Video/Audio, for example, set at 50hz you can set the max frame rate to 25fps max for 1080P, set at 60hz allows you to set the max rate to 30fps.
Another unique feature on this camera is the micro SD card slot and ability to play back recordings.
Much easier to work with in all regards and better made and designed than the mini dome.
A few interesting things to note is that Video Standard or what many call NTSC vs.
PAL is the Video Standard setting, 50hz for PAL and 60hz for NTSC (USA).
The IR LEDs are not partially blocked like they are on the mini dome, something that required a larger form factor to accomplish. This is what the web interface looks like when you first log in.
There’s options to take a snapshot, manually record, chose a stream and you can chose the aspect ratio which should be automatic, but it’s not.For example, if you chose 1080P, then you have to click on 16:9, if you chose 3MP mode, then click on 4:3. What’ different here than the previously reviewed Hikvision cameras are the audio controls at the bottom.
