The DS-2CD2342WD-I dome outdoor network camera delivers up to 4MP (2688×1520) at up to 20 frames per second (fps) and also captures colour images, even in a dim lit environment using Hikvision’s technology. The DS-2CD2342WD-I dome camera supports both day/night recording, this is enhanced by the integrated infrared illumination which covers a maximum range of 30m for effective 24-hour monitoring. The IP camera is compatible with various video management software and it is well protected due to the IP66 rated casing which makes it suitable for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor surveillance applications.
