The Viewtron IP-C2 is a 1080p / 2mp wireless IP camera with built-in IR night vision, PIR motion detector, and 2-way audio mic. This network IP camera is design for indoor installation. It can be desktop, wall, or ceiling mounted. This camera can be hard wired using the PoE network port, or it can connect to a wireless network. Please note that in order to use WIFI mode, the camera still needs to be connected to a power supply.
The built-in infrared LEDs provide IR illumination up to 10 meters / 30 feet. The fixed 2.8mm lens captures an ultra wide angle 116 degree field of view.
This IP camera is ONVIF protocol compliant so that it can be used with any ONVIF compatible NVR. CCTV Camera Pros highly recommends using our
Viewtron hybrid security camera DVRs when using this camera in addition to BNC cameras, or Viewtron IP camera NVRs when designing a pure IP camera system. You can find additional Viewtron network IP cameras here.

The below surveillance snapshots and video was captured with the IP-C2 installed at our demo ceiling mount location on our tech room. You will notice that the camera is installed upside-down. This is normal for the ceiling installation of this camera and is easily adjusted using the image flip function built into this camera.
When the IP-C2 is used as a wireless security camera, desktop installation is very common. Once the wireless connection is configured, you can simply plug the camera into any power outlet and as long as it is within range of the wireless access point, it will automatically connect.

Complete Security Camera System Quote
Did you know? CCTV Camera Pros can provide a complete surveillance system quote that includes any Viewtron DVR / NVR with cameras, cables, connectors, power supplies, and monitors? We can even mix and match IP cameras and BNC security cameras because Viewtron DVRs are hybrid.
As you have probably already seen on our website, we have 2, 4, 8, and 16 camera surveillance systems in pre-made packages. However, it is not possible for us to package up every combination and quantity of all the different camera models that we carry. So, we can also provide you with a custom quote with as many cameras as you need and a mix of any combination of camera model(s) based on your project requirements.
