Lorex 8MP 4K IP Motorized Varifocal Zoom Audio Dome/Turret Security Camera LNE8974BW, 250ft IR Night Vision, 4x Zoom

See further into the dark than ever before. Belonging to Lorex's line of Nocturnal IP security cameras, this all-black dome security camera offers the longest night vision range of any Lorex camera. It also offers 4K resolution recording, a motorized zoom lens with 4x optical zoom, listen-in audio, extreme weather capabilties, a heavy duty metal housing, and more.


  • 8MP Camera, 4K resolution - 4x the resolution of full HD 1080p
  • Remote zoom & focus, 2.7-12mm motorized varifocal AI lens, 102-39 degree (H) field of view
  • 4x optical zoom
  • Long range Night vision up to 250ft
  • Advanced H.265 & Super H.264 compression technology
  • IP67 weatherproof-rated
  • Edge storage support (MicroSD card) - up to 128GB

Regional motion zones

Use your NVR to program this camera with up to four different motion zones. These zones can be customized to adjust the sensitivity (the amount of movement required to register that movement) and threshold (how much movement is required before creating a motion "event") of the camera. This means that more important areas, such as a doorway, can be set to make any movement at all trigger recording (or create a motion event), while other sections of the frame, like a tree, would need a much higher level of motion.

HEVC / H.265 compression

Keep the 4K footage without the 4K file sizes thanks to this camera's cutting-edge HEVC compression technology. HEVC stands for High Efficiency Video Compression (also known as H.265 or MPEG-H Part 2), and is used by the camera to compress video file sizes without any noticable difference in quality. Please note that an NVR capable of receiving this type of compression is necessary to utilize this feature.

Privacy masking

In some cases, there are sections of the camera's field of view that you simply do not want it to record. Inside windows or perhaps your pool / hot tub, are good examples of this. Thankfully, you can use your NVR to literally mask out these sections by drawing a square or rectangle over the areas you don't want to record.
