The BIPRO-EC550VF has been discontinued and replaced with the upgraded BIPRO-S600VF12 outdoor CCTV camera. The new camera model provides better overall quality and features.
The BIPRO-EC550VF is an outdoor IR CCTV camera with 50 high powered infrared LEDs for day and night vision surveillance. The still shot examples

The IR capability of this camera is up to 132 feet in the dark. This security camera is enclosed in a vandal-proof and weatherproof polycarbonate case and the lens is concealed behind hard coated glass making it a great choice for outdoor surveillance. This camera has a weather proof rating of IP65. The camera power and video cables are concealed in the 3-axis mounting bracket. The 2.8-11mm DC auto iris lens allows you to adjust the angle of view and focus externally on the camera using controls on the exterior of the camera, so that an installer can easily make adjustments after the camera is mounted. This IR CCTV camera has a 1/3" color Sony Super HAD CCD sensor for high resolution surveillance. A cooling fan is mounting inside of the case to keep the camera cool in warm weather. This camera uses a 12VDC power source.
