The AHD-BL25 is a wide angle security camera (180-degree security camera) with built-in infrared night vision. This is a 1080p HD CCTV camera (AHD, HD-TVI, HDCVI formats supported) that can be used for indoor and outdoor video surveillance systems because the housing is weatherproof. The 2.5mm fisheye lens captures a 180-degree field of view (170-degree effective range).

Important Update! The AHD-BL25 is now a 4-in-1 selectable format camera. The following video formats are selectable using the OSD joystick that is attached to the camera's video cable.

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

This high definition surveillance camera can provide a complete overview of small to medium-sized rooms . The 180 degree / ultra wide angle view and the fact that the camera is IP66 weatherproof rated also make it a great choice to monitor exterior entrances at very close quarters. Check out these 180 degree surveillance photos that show the angle of view that this camera captures. You can also watch this 180 surveillance video demo. This camera can capture video in normal, low light and zero light conditions. The tri-axis bracket allows installers to ceiling mount or wall mount the camera and angle the lens in any direction.

This camera is typically connected to a surveillance DVR by hard wiring it using the same RG-59 or RG6 coaxial cable that is used for analog CCTV cameras.

The 24 infrared LEDs can illuminate up to 32 feet and the built-in on-screen display lets installers adjust advanced features such as wide dynamic range (WDR), SENS-UP, shutter speed, and 3D digital noise reduction.

If you do not need to record video and would like to connect this camera directly to a TV / HDMI monitor for live view only, a BNC to HDMI converter add-on option is available with this camera.

The above image was captured using the AHD-BL25. The camera is mounted in a medium sized room at CCTV Camera Pros office in West Palm Beach, Florida. This room is 29 feet wide by 16 feet deep. All of the lights are on in the room so that the camera is operating in daytime / color mode.

Wide Angle HD Security Camera

Here is another image captured by the AHD-BL25. Mike is positioned directly below the camera to show-off the ultra wide angle that this fish-eye lens provides. It is slightly less than 180 degrees but not by much. You will notice there is a small section of the room cutoff on the right size. The effective angle of the lens is actually 170 degrees. As with most 180-degree security cameras, it is slightly less than true 180 degrees.

5 of 5 Responsive and professional April 13, 2021
Reviewer: Azad from Detroit, MI  
I purchased a wide-angle security camera from the CCTV Camera Pros. They patiently responded to my initial questions about the technical specifications and compatibility of the camera with our existing DVR. I ordered on their website, and they shipped the camera the next day. The delivery was quick, and the item was packed properly. Happy to do business with CCTV Camera Pros. Thank you!

5 of 5 Great CCTV products, manuals, and support! November 10, 2020
Reviewer: JasonG from Victoria, BC Canada  
CCTV camera pros are my go to guys for technical support and tools for HD-CCTV cameras. The DVRs, cameras, and multiplexers are high quality and very durable.
I have also found their online library of manuals and videos very useful for comparing equipment and troubleshooting.

5 of 5 Love this camera! October 9, 2018
Reviewer: Marc J from South Carolina  
I was skeptical of the picture this security camera would provide because the cost was pretty low. I am pleased to say that it has exceeded my expectations. Nice wide view. Works great in the day and at night with the infrareds.
