This HD turret security camera can provide a complete overview of small to medium-sized rooms. Please check out the
sample HD surveillance images and 4 megapixel video surveillance video captured with this camera. The fixed 90-degree wide angle lens makes this camera a great choice to mount in the corner of most rooms. An IP66 weatherproof rated housing protects the vital components of the 5MP-D5 from harsh weather and ensures that it is a viable option to install outdoors. The tri-axis mount allows the installer to ceiling mount or wall mount the camera and pivot the lens in any direction.
The 5MP-D5 is a BNC security camera type which means that it is hard wired to a security DVR using
RG59 Siamese coaxial cable or pre-made BNC security camera cable. This is the same type of cable that is used to install standard definition analog CCTV cameras.
If you do not need to record video and would like to
connect this security camera directly to an HDMI TV for live viewing only, please check out this BNC to HDMI converter option or this 4 channel HD CCTV multiplexer.

Watch this video to see video surveillance footage recorded using a 5MP-D5 dome and iDVR-PRO 4K DVR. The 5MP-D5 was running in 4 megapixel HD-TVI mode when this video was recorded.
The above image was captured with the 5MP-D5 recording to an iDVR-PRO surveillance DVR at 4k resolution. Although this is a 5-megapixel security camera, the image is stretched by the DVR to record at full 4k resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels). If you click on the image, the full 4K resolution photo will open.
iPhone App Remote Camera View
In our testing, we connected our 5MP-D5 to an
iDVR-PRO HD Hybrid DVR. In addition to providing an excellent recording platform, the iDVR-PRO lets users log in over the Internet to remote view their surveillance cameras from iPhone.
Android Mobile App Remote Camera View
These images were captured while using the
iDVR-PRO mobile camera viewer app for Android. The camera is still connected to the iDVR-PRO at our office and we are accessing the DVR using WIFI on our demo network. This works the same as viewing the camera from remotely over the Internet.
In addition to the remote viewing capability from iPhone and Android, users can also view their camera using Windows and Mac desktop software. You can learn about all of the
remote camera viewing apps and software here.
BNC to HDMI converter can be ordered with this camera. The converter allows you to connect your security camera to a TV via the HDMI input of your TV. 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.
Installers can easily select the 5MP-D5's video mode by using the small joystick that is built-in to the camera's video cable. Please note that in order to use navigate the menu system of the camera using this joystick, the camera must be connected to a monitor. Most installers use one of our
HD compatible test monitors to adjust the video setting. If you do not have a test monitor, CCTV Camera Pros can set the video output to the setting that you require. The default video setting of this camera is 5 megapixel AHD.
Here is a close-up view of the joystick.
How to Change Video Output
To change the video output mode of the 5MP-D5, press straight down on the joystick and the main menu will display (as seen above). Then navigate to the Video Output menu and press straight down on the joystick again.
Using the joystick's left and right selector, toggle between the HD modes and Video Standard until the desired mode is selected. Once the desired mode is selected, go to Return and press straight down to exit. Finally, back on the main menu, press straight down on the Save-Exit menu to finalize the video mode settings.
