4MP HD Resolution

The NSC-4A425-PTZir captures video up to a resolution of 4MP @ 30 FPS, which is 2560x1440 pixels. Every pixel added to your camera's picture gives you a higher image quality and more detail. So at 4MP, you're going to get a crisper, cleaner, and more detailed image.

IP66 Weatherproof Rating

This camera has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 66. This means the camera is completely protected from dust and other solid particles (the first six). It can also withstand powerful streams of water jets from any direction (the second six).

Rest assured that when you install your camera outside, it will have no problem braving the toughest of storms.

Up to 160ft Night Vision IR Range

When the sun goes down or the lights go out, this camera switches on its own onboard infrared LED lights. These lights, which are invisible to the human eye, allow the camera to continue functioning and recording video 24/7, day or night. And since its IR range covers up to 160ft, you're not going to miss anything that happens on your camera's feeds, even if it happens in pitch-black darkness.

Remote Access

The NSC-4A425-PTZir is a part of our H-Series line of products. As such, it's packed with features that would please a power user, yet it's simple enough to operate for a novice. Easily view and manage your cameras and recorders anywhere in the world with the free mobile and desktop applications. For the power user, these apps give you the power to adjust advanced settings on the fly. For the novice, you can use the apps to simply view live feeds and play back recorded video. Whatever you need to accomplish, it's all right there at your fingertips.

Plug & Play

If you're creating a new system out of our H-Series cameras, set up is insanely easy with our H-Series line of POE NVRs. Simply plug the camera into the back of the H-Series NVR and you have instant video on the recorder's HDMI interface. You can also view and manage the NVR through free desktop and mobile apps, such as Hik-Connect and iVMS-4200.

ONVIF Compatibility

If you want to add this camera to a security system already set up, that’s no problem. This camera complies with the protocols set by the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF). This means, as long as your current recorder is ONVIF compatible, you’ll be able to set this camera up with your current system.

  1. Great PTZ for my house!
    Verified Purchase
    Got this PTZ for my back yard. It works great! The auto tracking works really well. Our house is on a small wakeboard lake and it is fun to see the auto tracking pick up the wakeboarder as they zip around the lake. The infrared works well and I can see my entire property very well, including sometimes picking up wildlife on the opposite side of the lake.

    You do have to use the injector that comes with it, even if you are using an NVR that has PoE+ capabilities. Other than that, setup was super easy.

  2. great addition to my home camera set up
    Verified Purchase
    I bought a 16 channel NVR along with 8 of the night color cameras from Nelly's. I recently added this PTZ and the auto tracking and line crossing has been great. The picture and the zoom is incredible. Cannot thank Nelly's enough for their help in selecting a product and the tech support I have needed to get everything where I need it. Outstanding camera !!!!!!

  3. Perfect PTZ
    Verified Purchase
    This is our go to PTZ camera for customers. The long range provides a great quality image. The night vision provides enough IR that provides a clear night image. Customers love the Auto Tracking. We have one of these running off of a Ubiquiti NanoStation and there is no lag and works perfect. The only thing I wish they offered were different style mounts like a Roof Parapet Mount to allow for more unique mounting opportunities.

  4. Great PTZ
    Verified Purchase
    This is a great 4MP PTZ. Image quality is excellent. Autotracking while not perfect is impressive. Customers love to see it following vehicles and people on their property with no user controlling it. 25X zoom is very nice and allows crisp images from a distance. Only small issue I would like to see improved is the ability to focus faster. Sometimes in auto track mode it cannot focus fast enough to get a clear image. Other than that it is a great camera at a great price. [Did not test night vision as this property is well lit.]

I have a Lorex NVR, will this camera work with it?

Yes it can, however it will not be plug n play. You will have to manually add the PTZ using the ONVIF protocol.
You will need to verify if your NVR supports 4MP resolution and the ONVIF protocol.
Is this a hikvision camera? If so could you inform the part number please.

Yes this is OEM Hikvision, the equivalent is - DS-2DE4A425IW-DE
Can this camera be viewed on more than one computer, or only one at a time?
Hey Martin,

Absolutely, you can view the camera from multiple computers at the same time. At least 5 can view the camera at once.
Who and where is the manufacturer.

This cam is H-series or OEM Hikvision. It is made in China.
Can this be mounted vertically? Thank you, Eric

Yes it can, but i would suggest mounting it horizontally with a wallmount to get the full benefit of this PTZ.
Can you monitor the NSC-4A425-PTZir ptz camera with a smart phone?

Yes you can! By using the Hik-Connect phone app for either Android or iPhone.
When will you have a 4K version of the SKU# 1598N?
We haven't seen a 4K version of this specific camera available yet.

That is the only mount that we have for that PTZ.
Did you have other mounts in mind?

I would suggest reaching out to our support team for any further questions -
How many camera you will be getting

This is 1 camera in total.
Does it have way audio?
Will it work with my LTS DVR
Are they compatible.
If the functions don’t work will you take it back?
Hey Mary,

It doesn't have two-way audio built in but it does have connections for a microphone and speaker. Yes, it should be compatible with most LTS recorders.

Yes, we will take it back within 60 days of you receiving the item, please see our warranty and returns page for information regarding a return.

Dear Nelly's Security,

Do you have any black Friday deals or discounts? What is the warranty period?
We will be having a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale which will begin Wednesday Evening November 27th and continue Until Monday December 2nd. The warranty on this unit is 3 Years.
Noob question

Can this camera be a stand a line unit or does it need a NVR to operate? And if so what would you recommend to pair with this unit as I am looking to build from scratch.

Thank you for your time.
The camera is fully capable of being a standalone unit, as it has an SD card slot. You can just hook the camera up directly to your router through a network cable, from there the camera will have network access so you can view the feed from your mobile device or even a computer.

If you do decide to go with an NVR here are few plug n play options.
4 channel- NSN-604(4k)-4P
8 channel- NSN-608(4k)-8P
16 channel- NSN-616(4k)-16p
does this have human and vehicle detection function?

This camera cannot tell the difference between vehicles and humans.
Is this plug and play with the nsn-608 nvr? Is there enough power to the camera through cat5 for 100% performance from the nvr?

Since this camera is H-series and the NSN-608(4k) is H-series, they will be plug n play!
The NVR can power the PoE+ PTZ as well. You can use the included Injector with the PTZ if youd like too.
Can i use this camera with just the app on my iphone?, and can i activate smart tracking on the app and get notifications to my app on my phone?

You can absolutely use this camera as a standalone system.

However, you cannot enable smart tracking via the app. but you can get mobile notifications when an event is triggered!
Can this camera be used to focus on license plates?
Hey Larry,

It can but the chances of capturing license plates aren't as good as they are with a specific License Plate Recognition camera such as our NSC-LPR83-BT1.

The best chance of capturing license plates with this PTZ require the settings to be at 2MP resolution and 60 FPS with auto tracking turned on.
Would this camera work on a dahua nvr?
Hey Duane,

Absolutely, it's ONVIF compliant so it will record on a Dahua NVR.
yes i was wondering how high off the ground can a person mount the unit?

You can mount this camera however high you'd like!
PoE max distance is 300ft without additional equipment.
Does this camera have line detection across multiple fields of view? I want to put this on a corner, default facing straight out to the street and swing it to both sides of the building (90° left, 180° right) for almost 270° view. Can you have multiple (or a continuous) line detection to engage autotracking as the camera rotates thru the field? Or multiple notifications for line crossings?

Also, it says it has a connection for audio out, but does it record audio in? Thanks!

If the PTZ is in motion, or moving, then event triggers become invalid. It will have to be in a set position, then setting lines within the field of view for the PTZ in that position can be triggered essentially.

This PTZ does have an Audio Input and Output.
Will the 4mp ptz camera w-auto tracking & 160’night vision connect to my network using Bluetooth.
This cameras does Not have any Bluetooth capability. The camera has to be hard wired into your network.
