4x optical zoom security camera

This nocturnal IP security camera includes a unique zoom lens, otherwise known as a motorized varifocal lens, that enables remote customization of your viewing area (and focus). Focus on a small area in astonishing detail thanks to the 4x optical zoom or survey a larger scene for maximum coverage. These adjustments can be easily made with your Lorex NVR or through our free mobile apps.

Always in focus

Achieving the correct focus hasn't always been easy with security cameras that can zoom in and out. That is not the case with this security camera. Regardless of what focal length you need, the camera will automatically adjust the focus so details are always fully distinguishable and crisp

Long range night vision

See further into the dark then ever before. Nocturnal security cameras come with high powered infrared lighting that floods the scene in front of the camera in infrared light. Invisible to the naked eye, but not to the camera, this infrared lighting will allow your security camera to see in complete darkness. With the addition of external lights, the night vision range for this camera can reach up to 250ft.

Color Night Vision (CNV)

Add external lights around your nocturnal security camera to utilize our revolutionary Color Night Vision technology. With CNV, you will be able to capture a whole new layer of details, such as the color of a car or the color of a person's clothes. Please note that the more ambient light, the better the color night vision will be. If there is only a little or no external light sources at all, the night vision will remain in black and white.

Sony Exmor R CMOS sensor

The image sensor at the core of this camera is not your typical image sensor. It is an incredibly sophisticated Sony Exmor R image sensor. This sensor uses back illuminated pixel technology for exceptional low light performance. It also shields the video from excessive video noise by passing through an analog noise reduction filter before converting the video signal to digital and a secondary digital noise reduction filter afterwards.

Real-time 30FPS recording rate

Choose to record 4K resolution at 15 frames-per-second (FPS) or record at a real-time 30 FPS rate at 2K resolution. Recording at 30 FPS will provide you with exceptionally smooth on-screen movement and provide you with more frames to choose from when cycling through footage.
