Quality Cameras

Let the eight color 420 TVL cameras watch your property for you. The cameras have 1/4" Sony CCD image sensors, 420 TV lines of resolution, 24 Infrared LEDs, and a 40 foot (12m) night vision range. Ready-made with a pre-assembled, 3-axis mount for easy placement of the camera on a wall, ceiling, or other flat surface.

D1 Resolution
