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-73 is a fixed-lens, low-light-capable camera with built-in IR (infrared) emitters that allow it to record at a maximum range of 150 feet. A waterproof design means you can mount it indoors or out.

I see you!

Written By jolucky1, Eatonville, WA on Thursday, September 26, 2013

My friend has this and it's one that I idol. Seeing the clarity in the picture helps with identifications of customers. I hope to get one and install it soon! Dependability on this is wonderful, if I want it, I recommend it!

Pros: Easy to install, views are clear and precise, has 150 ft capability for sight.

Cons: Haven't found any cons about it.

It operates on 12VDC, and has a 75-ohm composite video output with a BNC connector.
