This item is no longer available.
Our take on the ClearView TD-81 by Crutchfield's James Ralston
This dome camera works with ClearView Hawk, Eagle, and LCD Combo surveillance systems. Dome cameras are typically used for overhead placement and deliver a wide field of view. The TD-81 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.

Overview: The ClearView TD-81 is a day/night mini-dome camera designed for indoor or outdoor use in a closed circuit system, such as the ClearView Hawk, Eagle, or LCD Combo systems. This high-resolution camera (600 lines) features a 1/3" HDIS (high definition image sensor). The camera is equipped with a fixed 3.6mm lens. It operates on 12VDC, and has a 75-ohm composite video output with a BNC connector.
Minimum Illumination: The TD-81 can give you a clear, bright picture in extremely low light. The minimum illumination is 0.1 Lux (IR off) and 0 Lux (IR on).
Infrared: The camera has infrared LEDs encircling the lens to give the camera a range of 65 feet in total darkness (0 Lux).
Weatherproof: The TD-81's tough metal exterior makes it fully weatherproof (IP66), making it ideal for installation in extreme outdoor conditions.
Installation: The TD-81 is designed to be mounted on a ceiling or wall. The camera mounts with the 3 supplied self-tapping screws. The cables can be routed through the ceiling/wall by drilling an additional hole, or routed to the side through a slot in the base.
