Product Description

The OE-C2012B8-S is a 8MP outdoor bullet camera equipped with a 2.8~12mm varifocal, autofocus, zoom lens and person, vehicle, and line crossing analytics.  True WDR and true day/night functionality allow the camera to adapt to changing lighting conditions throughout the day to ensure high-quality images. 

The IK10 and IP67-rated housing and large size make it well-suited for installation in high-traffic areas to provide a strong visual deterrent without concern for inclement weather or vandalism. Adaptive IR technology prevents overexposure of objects close to the camera further enhancing the low-light performance.

The OE-C2012B8-S is compatible with multiple accessories allowing it to be mounted in a broad range of applications, making it an excellent choice for users looking for a rugged and smart bullet camera.

Combine the analytics capabilities of this camera with OpenEye Web Services to receive real-time alerts, on person, vehicle or line crossing detection, sent directly to your mobile device or PC.
