Product Description

B/W Vandal-Resistant Polycarbonate Dome Camera with Metal Base

The Lorex VQ1132 Varifocal Vandal Proof B/W Dome Camera is a discreet and durable surveillance camera. Constructed of polycarbonate, the smoke-colored dome housing not only provides high-impact protection against potential vandalism, but it also shields the camera's direction from the view of any observers. This camera provides a good-quality image and has excellent light sensitivity, and also allows for pan/tilt movement so you can cover more area. Easy to install, the Lorex VQ1132 is designed for primarily indoor use but can be used in shielded outdoor environments, and is well-suited to discreet surveillance at home, childcare, school or small businesses.

This camera utilizes a 0.33-inch black-and-white CCD (charge-coupled device) sensor, with 510-by-492 effective picture elements. Built with a four to nine-millimeter varifocal lens, the VQ1132 has a resolution of 380 TVL (TV lines), a S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio of more than 48 dB, and can receive a picture down to a minimum illumination of 0.5 Lux. Features such as automatic BLC (backlight compensation) and white balance, as well as the unit's automatic electronic shutter with an exposure time ranging from 1/60 to 1/100,000 of a second, help ensure an even higher picture quality. With the camera's 360-degree pan and 90-degree tilt range, you can monitor any area in a room. The VQ1132 runs on a 12-volt DC power supply (included), and can operate in temperatures from -26 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit.

Technical Features:

  • Sensitivity: down to 0.5 Lux
  • Lens type: 4-9 mm varifocal
  • Resolution: up to 510 by 492 pixels and 380 TVL
  • Operating temperature: -26 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Dimensions: 4.875 inches in diameter and 3.5 inches in depth
Designed for surveillance under trying circumstances, the Lorex VQ1132 provides you with a tamper-resistant and high-quality camera that can complement most any monitoring system. Quick and easy to install with a standard BNC (Bayonet Neill-Concelman, RF-type) to RCA video output connector, this Lorex camera comes completely assembled and ready to use and is dependable even in very low-light conditions. Users should note, however, that the CCD sensor may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light, so the camera should not be mounted or pointed directly at the sun or other bright-light sources.

About Surveillance Camera Technical Features
Lux rating is the measurement used to indicate how sensitive a camera is to light, and stands for the level of light reflected off a piece of paper by a candle from one meter away. Thus a sensitivity of three Lux would mean a camera could generate an acceptable picture of a piece-of-paper-sized object that was illuminated by the equivalent of three candles from one meter away. The lower the Lux level, the better the camera's ability to work in low-light conditions. The camera's resolution should be greater than or equal to the resolution supported by the system's recorder or monitor. The S/N, or signal to noise ratio, is an important measure of a camera's quality. A poor camera, low-light conditions or poor wiring causes "noise" which consumes processing power and disk space. A camera with a wide dynamic range is ideal, especially for recording areas in which both indoor and outdoor light are present. CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors provide high-quality images that are less susceptible to noise. CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors offer less image quality, but are usually more cost-effective and energy efficient.

About Dome Cameras
A dome camera is one of the most common indoor security camera styles. Mounted on the ceiling, and often designed to be tamper resistant, dome cameras are designed to be visually appealing and more secure than other types of security cameras. A true dome camera enables a continuous 360-degree pan and 90-degree tilt operation, providing for extensive room coverage. One disadvantage of dome cameras is that they usually are not suitable for low-light conditions and must be used in well-lit areas.
