Get a Full Picture of Any Large Space

The flexibility offered by this Fisheye Network Camera from Vivotek makes it an ideal addition to any home or office surveillance system. Monitor wide-open spaces such as hallways and offices with the wall-mounted, 180-degree panorama view or the ceiling- or floor-mounted 360-degree surround view, both without blind spots. Switch between panorama and regional viewing modes to zoom in on regions of interest, and convert the hemispherical images into standard projection for easy analysis. The pixel calculator keeps images clear and sharp, even while zoom is engaged.

In addition to resolution controls, this fisheye camera includes a removable IR-cut filter for day and night recording. WDR enhancement also helps provide clear images in both dark and bright situations, making this camera ideal for 24-hour surveillance. An onboard MicroSD/SDHC/SDXC card slot stores video and images. This fisheye camera comes with support for Vivotek's iViewer app, allowing you to take advantage of coverage from iOS and Android devices.
