Product Details

Talos Security DC3550 Vandal Dome IR Camera 550 Lines 4-9mm Lens

Vandal-proof dome cameras are designed to survive when lesser cameras are scattered across the floor. A rugged, heavy duty aluminum die-cast housing features rubber o-ring seals to protect from moisture ingress. An optional wall mount provides an attractive way to mount the camera and conceal the cabling. This dome housing was designed with the professional installer in mind; easy access to mounting holes and a tether that holds the upper dome while camera adjustments are made makes installations smoother. Captive screws are used to secure the upper and lower dome housing, so you don't need to worry about dropping them when you are on a ladder.

Able to survive a direct hit from a bat, club, or hammer, the polycarbonate dome will not cloud over time. A black cowl houses the IR LEDs and surrounds the lens, making it difficult to tell which area the camera is observing. Use this camera inside or outside and in direct contact with rain and water. The gimbal camera mount within the housing makes aiming the camera effortless.

The camera features a 1/3" Sony Super HAD CCD II that produces 550 lines of resolution while 30 IR LEDs illuminate the darkness up to 75 ft. and turn on automatically when ambient light falls below 1 lux. A 4-9 mm varifocal lens allows you to set the cameras viewing area to your specific needs. This camera will work with virtually any surveillance system, TV, or VCR with a composite video input; video output 1V p-p at 75 ohms. The camera operates on 12VDC or 24VAC for maximum system flexibility.

Talos Security DC3550 Vandal Dome IR Camera 550 Lines 4-9mm Lens
Talos Security DC3550 Vandal Dome IR Camera 550 Lines 4-9mm Lens is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Camera is a great valveThis camera does the job very well. But I have you say that theinstruction manual that came in the box useless . No mounting directions and how to adjust camera. Also no mention of internal workings of unit. You have to kind of figure it out as go along. Overall the camera looks well built and blends in once installed. Also noticed that the plastic dome degrades picture quality a little (found this out while adjusting it with dome off). One tip I would suggest is to use a laptop (after setting up DVR) to make fine camera adjustments outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had it for a couple months now..I've had this camera a couple months now and I am very impressed. Video at night looks like there are spotlights shining down over the area. Great detail, the video is as clear as looking out through a window. I'm going to start replacing the other cameras on the house with this camera and I plan to add a couple more to my system.I am glad I bought this camera.

How to focus this camera!!

Asked by: Ritchie
HI Ritchie,To focus the camera you remove the side section of the dome. Inside there are two ripped posts that will allow you to adjust the varifocus lens depth from 4 to 9mm and the other allows for the focus.
