Product Description 

The OE-C3212D8-S is a 8MP full size IP dome camera equipped with a 2.8~12mm varifocal, autofocus, zoom lens and person, vehicle, and line crossing detection 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-C3212D8-S is compatible with all 32-Series mounting accessories to fit a broad range of applications making it an excellent choice for users looking for a cost-competitive, full-featured smart 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.

NOTE: OpenEye recommends against using more than one power source at a time. Do not use a PoE power source when providing the camera with 12vDC power.
