Powerful performance meets incredible design with our 4MP vandal dome security camera. With 4MP of beautiful high definition video and its 120dB Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), this camera will deliver incredible video every time. Plus, with its 100 foot infrared range and IP67 weatherproof rating, neither darkness nor crazy storms will get in the way of your surveillance.

But where this camera really shines is in its vandal-dome design. It’s small, compact, sleek, and modern. Available in two different colors, you’re sure to get a camera that looks great, blends into its environment, and fits just about anywhere. Its all-metal construction and its vandal-proof glass dome makes it nearly impossible for someone to come along and tamper with the lens or vandalize the camera.

This camera’s construction gives it a ton of benefits over bullet- or turret-style cameras. But there are many more reasons why this may be the perfect security camera for you. To learn more about its specifications and features, keep reading!

4MP HD Resolution

The NSC-214G-DM 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.

2.8mm Fixed Lens

The NSC-214G-DM has a 2.8mm 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-214G-DM has a horizontal field of view of 98°.

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.

IK10 Vandalproof Rating

The NSC-214G-DM has an Impact Protection (IK) rating of 10, which is as high as the scale goes. If a vandal wants to try to bust open this camera, more power to them. Literally, they're going to need a lot more power, because this thing is indcredibly durable. That's why these dome-style cameras are often called vandal-proof domes, or vandal domes for short.

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.

Remote Access

The NSC-214G-DM 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. Perfect Indoor Dome
    Verified Purchase
    Great size (smaller than older model) with solid construction. Easy to setup with the three way adjustments. Only gripe was one of the torx screws on the outside cover was iffy but easily fixed.

  2. Great front door camera
    Verified Purchase
    I put this particular camera above my front door because I think it is a cleaner look then bullet or torret cameras. The 2.8mm is a perfect lens for close up 90 degree angle situations. I haven't found any problems with glare or IR light problems with the dome but is also under a cover and doesn't get direct light in its location. I have no problems recommending this camera and it serves it purpose very well. Night vision more then adequate. I prefer a 4mm lens for anything other than close areas since that has a slighter further and more narrow clear region but would purchase this again no problem for less than 30 feet.

  3. Excellent so far
    Verified Purchase
    I've had the camera a couple of weeks now. It's installed on a covered patio and connected to a Synology NAS with Surveillance Station acting as the NVR. I had a few questions before and after purchase and found Nelly's team very responsive and helpful. The camera has an excellent image and the night vision is surprisingly good. Initial simple setup in the NAS was very easy although the tweaking took a while. Primarily I was stumbling on having continuous recording on the NAS and motion recording on the SD card. I did not contact Nelly's for this, but found a few web links and finally got the configuration I wanted. I use the Hikvision android app for remote viewing.

  6. Very dependable dome camera
    Verified Purchase
    I have many of these installed and I'm using the mounting kits as well. They are easy to setup, install and maintain. The glass dome is tougher than I expected, and I just hose them off every once in awhile if cobwebs collect on them.

  7. Love the picture
    Verified Purchase
    I purchased these last year for a install and Loved them but now the torrents will be replacing them the night vision and clarity from the turrets in my option is far better. these are great little cameras but time consuming to deal with not to mention I HATE the special key needed to open them its just one more thing to have to keep track of without losing which I have done a lot already. If you do buy these do yourself a favor and cut the special key right at the curve that way you have a straight peeve which you can then attach to a drill to speed up the process. took a few busted knuckles and a few unpleasant words having to manually unscrew them little by little in tight spots by hand.

    The night vision in my opinion is so so i can't seem to find the right settings to get it to be clear yet without ghosting and minimal noise, the day time quality amazing

  9. Great over a front door
    Verified Purchase
    We installed this over in the alcove over a front door. It's perfect tucked into a corner with the wider angle (2.8) and the video quality is excellent. During the day, I don't really know that I could ask for more in terms of image quality. At night, particularly at the close range we're using, the night vision and IR lighting is really everything you could need. If you have a strong light over your door, you can actually leave it in full color mode. It occasionally attracts a spider web near it, but the dome design means they can't get close enough to really get in the way of the video. Make sure you don't set the smoothing too high and play with the settings for shutter speed for maximum benefit.

  10. Not so good on infrared
    Verified Purchase
    The infrared performance of this camera falls short of the Hikvision cameras I have of similar quality and price. I was under the impression that these were a re-branded version of the Hikvision but I question that. This camera is probably the worst low light camera I have ever purchased.

I am building a new house and pre wiring cat 5e. I understand there is a pigtail on the connector to the camera. What is the full diameter of the hole I need to drill to fully accommodate the mechanical clearance of the various connectors? This appears to be an elusive spec.
You can drill an inch and a quarter hole to feed the connector (pigtail) back into the Eve or even wall of the house. After that use the drill template which comes with the camera to figure out the hole pattern of that particular camera.
Thank you for the quick response.
Why such a big hole? When I look at rj45 female connector they appear to be perhaps an inch. Am I missing some other dimension? 1 1/4 inch just seems pretty big.
1 inch hole will work but at times it might be difficult to feed the connector/pigtail through specially if you put any type of weather proof tape on the rj45 connector. You can start off with 1 inch and make it slightly wider if needed, in any case the camera will cover that hole.
Hi there, two questions:

1) Can this camera be mounted on an exterior wall instead of mounting it on an eve or other exterior horizontal surface?
2) can this camera be set up in Synology’s Surveillance Station?

1. You sure can! For vertical walls, you can use a wall mount ->
2. Yes it can, this is an OEM Hivision camera and does work with SSS
1. does this camera support FTP and HTTPS protocols?
2. does it has a webpage interface?
3. is it compatible with iVMS 4200 app?
4. does it support motion detection and night vision?

Thank you!
1) Yes
2) Yes
3) Yes
4) Yes
has anyone tried this camera with milestone software? If so was there any issue?
Hey Bobby,

Absolutely, it works great with Milestone. No issues whatsoever.
Does this camera have a micro SD card slot on it?
Hey David,

Yes it does, it's located under the dome on the motherboard of the camera.
I'm new to this stuff. Want to hook up a couple cameras but where am i recording it to? Do i need a seperate recorder? Are these wireless?

If you want to record, i would suggest an NVR! Since this is an H-series camera, an H-series NVR would be best for plug n play.
This camera is not wireless, you will need to run cat5/6 to the camera.
