Our take on the ClearView BL-71

by James Ralston
Clearview

This bullet camera works with ClearView Hawk, Eagle, and LCD Combo surveillance systems. A typical installation of this camera would be to place it low enough near your front door to clearly show the face of a person seeking entry. The BL-71 is a fixed-lens, low-light-capable camera with built-in IR (infrared) emitters that allow it to record at a maximum range of 65 feet in total darkness. A waterproof design means you can mount it indoors or out.
