NSC-208G-BTIP Security Camera
4KUltra HD Resolution
Up to 100ftNight Vision IR Range
This H-Series 4k Ultra HD IR bullet IP camera is one of our most popular models at Nelly’s Security. It’s a beautiful camera with a smaller form factor than most bullets. As such, it can fit pretty much anywhere without attracting a ton of attention. In addition to quick and simple installation, its three-axis tool-free adjustment means you can always get the perfect angle instantly.
Enjoy one of the most beautiful images that security cameras have to offer with its 4K ultra high definition resolution and its true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR). With a 100 foot IR distance and IP67 weatherproof rating, nothing will stop this camera from producing fantastic video.
Use this with our H-Series recorders, a third party recorder, or as a standalone camera with its Micro SD card slot (up to 128GB). Automatically record video at the start of several events, from motion detection and video tampering, to more advanced events like intrusion and line-crossing detection.
With its modern design, its powerful performance, and its flexible configuration, the NSC-208G-BT is a great solution for just about any surveillance need you may come across. Here are some of the specs that make this camera great.
4K Ultra HD Resolution
The NSC-208G-BT captures video up to a resolution of 4K @ 15 FPS, which is 3840x2160 pixels. Every pixel added to your camera's picture gives you a higher image quality and more detail. So at 4K, you're going to get a crisper, cleaner, and more detailed image.
4mm Fixed Lens
The NSC-208G-BT has a 4mm Fixed Lens. That means it’s fixed at one length; it can't optically zoom in and out. The longer the focal length on a fixed lens camera, the more zoomed in it is and the more close-up detail you'll be able to see. But the shorter the focal length, the wider the field of view and the more area your surveillance will cover.
The NSC-208G-BT has a horizontal field of view of 79°.
IP67 Weatherproof Rating
This camera has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 67. This means the camera is completely protected from dust and other solid particles. It can also withstand being submerged in 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes.
Rest assured that when you install this camera outside, it will have no problem braving the toughest of storms.
Up to 100ft 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 100ft, you're not going to miss anything that happens on your camera's feeds, even if it happens in pitch-black darkness.
The NSC-208G-BT 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.
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.
Verified PurchaseSo I purchased this camera system about 2 years ago at $200/ea for the cameras. One review has 3 stars, this one I'm giving 2 stars because another camera had water in it.
I'm surprised how cheap these are made based on the price (like I said in my other review). But they are supposed to be IP67 rated, meaning it is protected from dust, check and water submersion for 30 minutes at 3ft (1 meter), well.... it has water in it from rain. Not sure how it got there but nothing is cracked, this camera is never in the sun (it's on a part of my home where the sun does not hit it all day), it isn't cracked or dry rotted, and the seals seem to be intact.
I am smart enough to be able to pull the housing apart and get everything cleaned up, which I did, but this is something I shouldn't have to do. I checked the seals around the middle of the housing and the lens but there was nothing visible. No explanation for why it is getting water in it. The camera is mounted to an electrical box with the cable hole facing down and the electrical box is well secured/sealed.
If another camera gets water in it, I may look for another brand.
Verified PurchaseI purchased a bunch (8) of these cameras and after a year and a half, I noticed one of them was fogging up on my monitor. I started to investigate what the problem was to find that the bead of sealant around the plastic lens cover was no longer holding the plastic in place so during a rainstorm water was getting into the camera. I took the camera down from the mount but couldn't put a cover over the hole, therefore I could not keep rainwater from getting into the garage structure. I
I ended up going to Homedepot and picking up a tube of outdoor sealant and putting a bead around the lens cover and I haven't had a problem since. Had to drop my 5 star rating from 5 to 3 because the price for this camera, it shouldn't be so cheaply made.
Verified PurchaseBoth had to be replaced under warranty.
Verified PurchaseCamera has an excellent image both day and night. Haven't had the opportunity yet, but I believe this camera would get tag numbers clear enough to make out ok. Support from Nellys was awesome as usual. There's no reason to buy anywhere else.
Verified PurchaseThis 4K bullet cam monitors a side yard with an access gate and cul-de-sac beyond. The horizontal 79 degree field of view provides perfect coverage and very good detail. Installation using the 1280ZJ-XS Aluminum Junction Box was easy. Images are very sharp (see video clips). The NVR recognized the POE camera right away. Line crossing email alerts were easy to setup and provided more specificity than motion alerts.
Verified PurchaseI bought three of these 4K cameras from Nelly's as soon as I saw their video review. At $199 these well built 4K bullet cameras produce an amazing picture. With a nice and wide field of view and ultra sharp image, these cameras instantly leveled up my home security system. You may not think that the additional resolution will make much of a difference, but it really does.
Now when I look at my 3 and 4MP cameras, they just look blurry by comparison. Not mention my 2MP PTZ cameras...they look practically "Low-Res" when compared to 4K. As usual, fast shipping from Nelly's and appreciate them staying at the cutting edge and offering competitive pricing. Very happy with this purchase!
Verified PurchaseI replaced a 3MP Hikvision bullet cam which has a decent picture but this 4K cam blew it away. I mounted the cam without telling my wife and then displayed the picture and I watched her do a double take and she asked "Did you buy that 4K camera you were looking at?" she instantly noticed the difference so yeah you can really see the difference.
Verified PurchaseI upgraded from a 1080p camera system by another company and I have to say these cameras are amazing. The picture quality is so much better than the 1080p cameras.
The price is a little high for buying multiple cameras at once ($200/ea) so if you are planning to start a home security system, I would suggest starting early and piecing it together. However, the cameras are well worth the price in terms of picture quality, I couldn't ask for a better picture.
Verified PurchaseI picked one of these up from Nelly's as part of their garage sale store and all I can say is WOW! This camera produces some unbelievably clear feeds. Super easy to setup using SADP and I am using it with Blue Iris NVR software. Do be forewarned this thing can eat up hard drive space in a hurry but it is well worth it if you have an area that requires a very clear image even zoomed in on the feed. As with most IP cameras the night performance is good but can be better with supplemental IR lighting or normal lighting but some setting tweaks can also help. Overall excellent buy at a great price!
Verified PurchaseBy far the best in clarity and cost. Also as far as customer service, I have never experienced better. Customer service tech Nichelle was able to diagnose current and potential future problems and fixed them easily and with minimal down time. Will never buy a security product from anywhere else!!!
