    IP PoE 2K (2048 x 1536) 3MP IP66 Waterproof Infrared Dome Camera with 4mm Fixed Lens

    IP PoE Infrared Dome Camera

    This outdoor dome camera is designed to connect to your Network Video Recorder or IP Based CCTV System. Monoprice's full featured video monitoring system is compatible with PCs running Microsoft Windows® XP or later (32- or 64-bit) and Apple Mac® computters running OS X®. The camera connects to the network using either Cat5e/Cat6 cabling or wirelessly over a Wi-Fi® connection. It supports the Power over Ethernet (PoE) feature, so there is no need for a separate power adapter when using a wired PoE connection.

    IP PoE Infrared Dome Camera



    This dual-stream camera features 30 infrared (IR) LEDs, which automatically turn on in low-light conditions to allow black and white recording of images in conditions as dark as 0 lux to distances as great as 30 meters! Its image processing circuitry includes 3D Digital Noise Reduction (3DNR), Digital Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), Backlight Compensation (BLC), and Regions of Interest (ROIs). ROI allows you to create up to four subzones within the overall video image, each of which will have its own separate video stream and its own zoom and crop settings. The effect is similar to having multiple cameras focused and zoomed onto specific portions of the field of view, using just a single camera.




    1. Incoming visible light

    2. Visible light passes through the IR-blocking filter

    3. Color filters control the color of light reaching the sensors

    4. Color blind sensors convert the light into electronic signals

    5. Millions of individual light sensors

    Complementary Metal-oxide Semiconductor: The CMOS image sensor utilizes newer technologies to better record HD resolutions and fast-moving activities.



    Region of Interest: ROI allows you to configure one or more areas of a given camera's field of view for additional scrutiny. For each defined ROI, the camera will create a seperate video substream, which can be viewed or captured seperately from the main Field of View. The effect is to provide multiple views and capture feeds using only a single camera.



    Back Light Compensation: BLC reduces silhouetting, so you can see foreground subjects clearly when positioned in front of a bright background. The BLC circuitry adjusts the exposure so that the subject is properly illuminated and clearly visible.



    Digital Noise Reduction: Image noise can come from a variety of sources, but is most often associated with low-light conditions, resulting in a "grainy" image. This noise not only interferes with the ability to clearly distinguish individual image elements, but also increases the storage space required for any given image. The DNR circuitry uses a digital comb filter to remove this noise.



    Wide Dynamic Range: WDR produces clearer images and more even lighting in views that are simultaneously both bright and dark. This is particularly useful in areas with windows and lots of natural light. WDR improves on the ability of Back Light Compensation (BLC) and High Light Compensation (HLC) by independently adjusting the intensity of different portions of the image to produce proper lighting intensity across the entire image.

    What is it about this camera that makes it a "mini dome"? Looks like the dimensions are the same size as the 2K (product number 12461). I'm looking for a IP micro dome for internal use...

    Do these Monoprice branded ip cameras receive firmware updates from the 'manufacturer' or are these essentially unbranded grey market cameras?

    Does this camera connect with an ethernet jack? Is this camera Zwave compatible?
    Mark A on Feb 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes the camera connects with an Ethernet jack. If you are using a POE Ethernet switch, then the camera is powered by the same CAT5 or CAT6 cable.

    I can't say if it's Zwave compatible, but for all intents and purposes this camera is actually a re-branded Hikvision DS 2CD2132-i.

    Excellent PoE Security Camera
    We recently started buying these cameras after seeing them at CES to replace our Axis cameras that cost twice as much. For the price, you can't beat these cameras. They are simply awesome.

    PROS: Cheap

    Quality Built

    Uses MJPEG and MP4 standards

    PoE capable

    Waterproof and outdoor rated

    Great viewing angle

    CONS: A bit heavy

    Mount leaves a bit to be desired in flexibility

    Excellent Generic IP camera
    I decided to try this camera after buying and installing 3 other branded Hikvision IP cameras for my DIY home surveillance setup using a Synology NAS. I had considered other generic options but felt confident with Monoprice and the excellent history I have had with their support. That, and they were having a sale, so I pulled the trigger on this dome camera for $99.

    Needless to say, I was used to the Hikvision software and interface and was pleased to find that this camera uses the identical interface. Therefore setup and installation was a breeze with my existing PoE router and Synology's surveillance software.

    I cannot speak for the technical qualities of the images other than to say that it looks fantastic and sharp and identical to the 1080p (actually 2k) feeds from my other 3 branded cameras.

    PROS: Excellent image
    Excellent value
    Standard PoE installation
    Included software and firmware reasonably easy to navigate

    CONS: Generic camera - brand not available for surveillance software selection (ONVIF makes this a non-issue)

    Average Camera At Good Price
    I bought this camera just to see how it would perform at this price point. Reading my notes above, they pretty much sum up my review. The camera is OK – – it could really use a firmware upgrade along with software that might be a little bit more user-friendly and added desired features. Once configured, the camera performs as well as some I've reviewed costing $150 more.

    PROS: Camera is well made with decent documentationrare usually at this price point. Good picture in good light and not bad with IR in dark. IR light pattern is quite consistent. Note it uses a break-out cable for connections. This could be hard to deal with in outdoor connections unless a backbox is used. I do not see a backbox from Monoprice but ones from Axis, Flir, and others may work.

    CONS: The included programming software is a bit awkward with latency due, I'm sure, to a slow processor in the camera. The camera has date and time stamp which (AFAIK) cannot be removed. The image rotation and mirroring is inadequate for some special applications. Dual streams are kludgy to configure and 720P would be a nice addition. Maybe in our lifetime there will be a firmware update to address these and other shortcomings. Do not attempt to program this while it is connected to a recorder or similar. The latency will drive you nuts.

    Response from Monoprice
    Hi Klay,

    Glad to hear you have been satisfied with this IP camera thus far! I just wanted to mention that the date/time stamp can be turned off within the camera's OSD settings. To get there, you would need to go Configuration > Advanced Configuration > Image > OSD Settings. Once in the settings, there will be three check boxes for enabling/disabling the name of the camera, date, and week. I hope this helps and should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!

    No accessories included, so addition to existing system nit standalone
    Waiting to see in video quality and features are on par with claims.

    PROS: Can't say yet, as a standalone camera, have not yet got it working due to no power.

    CONS: Doesn't come with 5v or PoE accessories, not clear in description. So can't yet use it.
    March 17, 2015
    Response from Monoprice

    Our security cameras do not come with a power supply included, you would need an NVR as well as an ethernet cable to power the IP camera such as the following:

    4CH NVR with built in POE PID 12442

    8CH NVR with built in POE PID 12458

    5ft Cat6 PID 9832

    50FT Cat6 PID 9818

    100FT Cat6 PID 11233

    Please let me know if you need any further assistance. Hope this helps!

    Good camera, but understand where your going to use it
    This is my first experience into IP Cameras and DVRs. The camera (re-branded Hikvision) is decent for the price. Easy enough to install and I use them with AS Alnet Systems DVR software.

    My intended use was to monitor the outside of my house, but I underestimated the distance, and the viewing angles are not great. Also disappointing (my lack of experience with cameras) is that the night vision is 100% useless in true darkness. There MUST be an external light source of some kind and then it's not bad.

    That said, in a well lite area, the camera is excellent, the picture is really good. My opinion is that these cameras a more suited to indoor settings, or maybe a door entry combined with a motion sensor light.

    Not Pan and Tilt in My Book
    I ordered this not realizing that the pan and tilt functions required a ladder, a screwdriver and my two hands. In my book, that's an adjustable mount, not a pan and tilt function. I have an RMA, and it's going back today. Also, after reading the manual, I wasn't quite sure how I would be able to get it working, since all it talked about was the windows software enclosed. I might have been able to figure it out, but I never tried after I figured out the pan and tilt problem.

    PROS: Inexpensive

    CONS: No remote pan and tilt function
    No Mac software to help set it up
