Weatherproof, vandal-proof dome surveillance camera with 2.8-12mm zoom lens and 100-foot IR range
Our take on the ClearView TD-88 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-88 features a manually adjustable zoom lens that gives you flexibility in placing your camera to achieve the coverage you need in your monitored zone. This low-light capable camera has built-in IR (infrared) emitters that allow it to record at a maximum range of 100 feet in total darkness. Its durable housing is not only weatherproof, but also vandal-proof for additional security.

Overview: The ClearView TD-88 is a day/night zoom 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" Sony Super HAD CCD imaging device. The camera is equipped with an 2.8mm-12mm Varifocal lens. It operates on 12VDC (power adapter sold separately), and has a 75-ohm composite video output with a BNC connector.
Minimum Illumination: The TD-88 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 two rows if infrared LEDs encircling the lens to give the camera a range of 100 feet in total darkness (0 Lux).
Focus/Zoom Controls: The TD-88 has screw adjustments for focus and zoom on the exterior cover. A small flathead screwdriver is required to make the adjustments.
Weatherproof: The TD-88's tough metal exterior makes it fully weatherproof (IP66), making it ideal for installation in extreme outdoor conditions.
Installation: The TD-88 is designed to be mounted on a ceiling or wall. The camera has a 3-piece mounting system which lets you manually position the camera to your liking. A hidden set screw locks down the camera and makes it tamperproof. The base attaches to the ceiling or wall with the 4 supplied self-tapping screws. The cables can be routed through the ceiling/wall by drilling an additional hole, or routed to the side through one of the provided slots in the base.
