- Open Dome Turret Camera with 2.8-12mm Varifocal Zoom Lens
- Open Dome Turret Camera Option Cable Management Base
Hey there and thank you for checking out this video from Orange Security – we make security cameras simple. Located here in beautiful South West Florida we serve the whole of the United States of America.
Let’s take a look at our open dome turret cameras with the varifocal lens. It features an adjustable lens from 2.8mm wide angle to 12mm narrow angle. Zoomed in, the camera will give you identification at up to about 50 feet from the camera. The camera body comes in either white or black color.
The connections for both power and video are industry standard. Video is BNC. There are 2. The yellow one is the full HD output and the white is standard definition analog output allowing you to connect to an older existing recorder.
The joystick in the cable allows you to access the on screen display menu for the camera. Here you can make adjustments to settings on the camera. A word of warning – the factory default settings are pretty good and we wouldn’t recommend changing them without our advice.
The included hex key is for the easy-lock system on the mounting bracket. There are also 2 rubber plugs included are to fit in the zoom and focus adjuster screw holes to ensure the camera is completely weatherproof in all conditions.
Take the included hex key and loosen but don’t undo the locking bolt for the easy-lock system. Slide the locking tab forward and the collar will come away from the camera. You can now take the camera ball off the mounting plate.
The mount has 3 screw holes to be used to fix the plate to the mounting surface. Note the 2 locating tabs to the rear of the mounting plate that the collar is secured to.
An option for this camera is the cable management base sold separately. As you can see, it’s about an inch deeper giving you space to conceal cable connections.
To use this base, fully undo the hex bolt and the locking tab and refit these to the deeper base.
If the camera is to be fitted with totally concealed wiring, the cable can go straight through the mounting plate and through the wall. If you will have surface mounted wiring, there is a cut out in the plate to allow the wire through.
Refit the collar using the two locating tabs. While pushing down at the front, slide the easy-lock tab into place holding the collar and camera down. Use the hex key to lock it in place.
To adjust the zoom and focus you use the two screws to the front of the camera. Take a small, flat blade screwdriver and make minor adjustments while watching the image until you have the perfect zoom and focus settings.
Once done, fit the two small rubber plugs and you are good to go!
There we have it – one of our most popular camera body designs in a great package with a versatile zoom lens.
