This "IP" camera works with ClearView's Phoenix digital surveillance systems. It connects to the NVR (network video recorder) via ordinary Ethernet connections. Power and video signals are both carried by the same cable, which helps keep installation easier. IP camera systems are ideal when longer cable runs (up to 330 feet) are necessary. The IP-71 ceiling-mountable mini-dome camera features a fixed 3.6mm lens and a waterproof, dustproof design that allows placement outdoors.
