The following items are included:

Optional Brackets:




The PTZ-AHD-5 is a high-definition infrared PTZ security camera that supports 1080p / 2 megapixel video surveillance in the AHD, HD-TVI, and HDCVI video formats. This pan tilt zoom camera also supports 960H resolution in analog CCTV (CVBS) video mode. Installers can easily select the video output they want to use by accessing the cameras on screen display via PTZ commands. The built-in IR night vision of this camera supports a max illumination distance of 40 meters (120 feet).

The motorized 2.8-12mm zoom lens supports 4x optical zoom. This camera supports PTZ controls via UTC (up the coax) or RS-485 via Pelco D or Pelco P protocol. Users can control the PTZ of the camera via a compatible DVR, RS-485 Joystick, and remotely via mobile apps when connected to a DVR that supports mobile apps (we recommend Viewtron DVRs).

This PTZ camera is enclosed in an IP67 rated outdoor dome housing that safeguards against harsh weather, dust, humidity, and acts of vandalism. This camera can be used for indoor or outdoor installations. The PTZ-AHD-5 is hard wired to a DVR using RG59 coaxial cable.

Please check out this demo video and these 1080p surveillance images captured using the PTZ-AHD-5.

1080p Video Surveillance Image from HD PTZ Security Camera

This image was captured using the PTZ-AHD-5 that is installed at CCTV Camera Pros office in West Palm Beach, Florida. The camera is connected to a hybrid BNC DVR using RG59 Siamese coax cable. iDVR-PROs support "Up the Coax" controls for PTZ cameras, therefore no RS-485 cable was necessary for this installation. This room is 30 feet long by 15 feet wide. Mike is standing 9 feet away from where the camera is mounted. The camera is mounted to a ceiling tile that is 9 feet high.

UTC / Up The Coax PTZ Support

The PTZ-AHD-5 supports UTC, which stands for "Up The Coax". It is a technology that allows the video and PTZ commands to both transmit over the same RG59 coax cable. Please note that the PTZ-AHD-5 is not the camera pictured below.

PTZ Camera UTC Wiring Diagram to DVR

This is how to wire this UTC compatible PTZ to a DVR. In this example, we are using an iDVR-PRO AHD hybrid DVR.

  1. Blue Wire - RG59 coax cable is run from the PTZ camera to a video input on the DVR. This will transmit the video signal and pan tilt zoom commands.
  2. Red Wire - Power cable, typically 18/2 stranded power wire is run from the camera to a multi-camera power supply box or the single camera power transformer that is supplied with the camera. *Please note that installers can use RG59 Siamese cable which contains both RG59 coax and 18/2 power cable to run both power and video / UTC cables.
  3. Green Wire - Optionally, the DVR is connected to a router / Internet connection using CAT-5e cable if the user wants to enable remote viewing and remote PTZ control via mobile apps and desktop software for Mac or Windows.

You can find our complete PTZ camera controller and installation guide here.

Selectable Video Format

PTZ Camera Video Mode Selector - AHD, HD-TVI, HDCVI, Analog CCTV (CVBS)

The PTZ-AHD-5 has 4 selectable video formats. It supports the following video standards:

  • AHD - 1080p Resolution
  • HD-TVI - 1080p Resolution
  • HDCVI - 1080p Resolution
  • Analog CCTV (CVBS) - 960H Resolution

Installers can select the video output mode using the sub-OSD menu. The sub-OSD is a special menu used to select the video output of the camera. This menu is accessed by calling certain PTZ control commands.

The above screenshot shows video and the OSD of a PTZ-AHD-5 being accessed from an iDVR-PRO DVR. The default video output of the camera is set to AHD. To open the sub-OSD menu, PTZ preset-102 must be sent twice to the camera. This is done by double clicking on the preset-102 send command in the iDVR-PRO interface. The menu is navigated up and down using the Zoom+ and Zoom- commands. To change the selection, the Focus-in / Focus-out commands are used. To save the settings, navigate to the "RETURN" option and click preset-102 twice again. Please note that iDVR-PRO DVRs currently do not work well with HDCVI format. For iDVR-PRO DVRs we recommend the default 1080p AHD setting.

OSD Menu

HD PTZ Camera OSD Access and Controls

The main OSD (on screen display) menu of the PTZ-AHD-5 can also be accessed using PTZ commands. Users typically do not need to modify the factory default settings of this camera but if you do, the OSD menu can be accessed by sending a preset-95 command to the camera. The main OSD can be navigated using the Up / Down PTZ commands. The Left / Right commands are used to change the selection of menu items.

5 of 5 Excellent PTZ camera April 28, 2023
Reviewer: Wilfredo M from Mesa, AZ  
We ordered a PTZ camera online. We had questions about the compatibility of our existing DVR. I spoke to Mike and he was able to answer all of our questions in a courteous and professional manner. We were surprised to receive the camera within a couple of days and it absolutely met our expectations. Thanks Mike.

5 of 5 Top Notch Supplier March 27, 2023
Reviewer: Ray F from Beaver Crossing, NE  
Mike and the crew really helped me out. I ran into a situation where I had to install non IP video cameras with RS 485 communication for PTZ. This was not familiar to me as I generally only resell and install full I.Ps camera systems. They walked me through the setup and installation and made sure I knew what was going on . Top notch dealer, with top notch knowledge, and service. I would highly recommend!
