The AHD-BL5H is a 1080p HD CCTV camera (AHD, TVI, CVI security camera) with built-in infrared capable of seeing up to 100 feet in complete darkness. The AHD-BL5H is enclosed in an IP68 rated weatherproof housing so that it can be used for indoor and outdoor video surveillance applications. This camera has a vari-focal (adjustable) 2.8 to 12mm lens that allows installers to adjust the field of view from very wide (about 100 degrees) to a much more narrow and zoomed in view. This high definition analog camera uses a Sony Progressive Scan image sensor that captures 1080p resolution ( 1920 x 1080 / 2 megapixel ) video. This camera is hard-wired to a DVR using RG59 coaxial cable. As with all AHD cameras, they must be used with an AHD compatible DVR.

This 1080p camera uses 35 built-in infrared LEDs that allow the camera to operate in low light and zero light conditions. The smart IR technology enables the camera to automatically adjust the intensity of the infrared lighting based on the distance objects are located from the camera. Please check out these 1080p images captured by the AHD-BL5H. You can also watch HD surveillance video demos captured with this camera here.

Installers can easily access a menu (on-screen display) that allows them to adjust the camera's image settings using a joystick located on the camera. Digital Noise Reduction produces better image quality by removing graininess, especially useful in black & white mode when the IR LEDs are active. Other settings such as brightness, gain, low light intensity (SENSUP) can also be adjusted using the OSD. The vari-focal lens adjustment and focus are also very simple to adjust on this camera using two knobs located on the back of the housing. This camera is dual voltage and can be powered via a 12V DC or 24VAC power supply.

If you would like to connect this camera directly to an HDMI compliant TV / Monitor, please refer to this BNC to HDMI converter, or select it from the drop-down menu above.

In addition to the BNC video input on the converter, there is also a BNC loop output so that you can connect the camera to a DVR in addition to a TV / monitor. The BNC loop output is optional to use.

This device can be used solely as a way to connect your security camera to a TV for a live view only or you can also use the BNC output to also connect the camera's video to a second device, such as a DVR for recording video surveillance footage. You can see this in the above installation diagram.

5 of 5 Always Impressed with Customer Service July 22, 2021
Reviewer: StevenL from Redlands, CA  
We have always been impressed with the customer customer we have received from CCTV Camera Pros. Today Zack had gone above and beyond. He was patient, knowledgeable, and concerned about helping us solve our problem. Another important aspect of this company is that they have shown a high level of integrity. Which is rare to see now a days. If you are looking for a company to buy a security system from, I would highly recommend them. You won't be sorry.

5 of 5 Good stuff July 2, 2021
Reviewer: JosephS from Cary, NC  
The system was working fine but 1 camera lost night vision capability intermittently. I replaced it and all is well again. CCTV is very easy to deal with and CS is responsive.

5 of 5 Crystal Clear HD View December 1, 2016
Reviewer: SammyH from Fort Myers, FL United States  
We recently upgraded the security cameras in our office. We replaced two analog CCTV cameras that were about 8 years old. We needed these two cameras in opposite corners of the room to provide coverage for the whole area.

The AHD-BL5H was able to replace both of these cameras and provides a much higher resolution image. We have this camera connected to an iDVR-PRO4A. The recording, live viewing, and video playback are all outstanding with this camera. Highly recommended!
