NSC-214G-DMIP Security Camera
100FTNight Vision IR Range
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!
The NSC-214G-DM captures video up to a resolution of 4MP @ 30 FPS, which is 2560x1440 pixels. To put this in perspective, FHD (Full High Definition) is 2 megapixels, or 1920x1080 pixels. These cameras don’t have a high resolution, but they’re faster and more affordable. On the other end of the spectrum, 4K Ultra HD resolution is 8MP. These produce crazy high resolution video, but can be slower and much more expensive. So at 4MP, this camera is a pretty good blend of both. It has a higher resolution than FHD cameras without the cost of 4K UHD.
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 fixed length of 2.8mm, giving it 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 practically indestructible. That's why these dome-style cameras are often called vandal-proof domes, or vandal domes for short.
100' 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 100 feet, you're not going to miss anything that happens on your camera's feeds, even if it happens in pitch-black darkness.
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.
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 PurchaseGreat 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.
Verified PurchaseI 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.
Verified PurchaseI'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.
Verified PurchaseIt looks pro at the store front and the picture quality is excellent.
Verified PurchaseGreat picture, easy to set up. Going to order more.
Verified PurchaseI 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.
Verified PurchaseI 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
Verified PurchaseCherry on top. Quality is unreal. It gives a killer look to the house.
Verified PurchaseWe 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.
Verified PurchaseThe 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.
