Overview of the Arecont Vision SurroundVideo AV12186DN

This product is discontinued, an alternative model is the Mobotix M16

High-level and durable AV12186DN outdoor dome network camera from the Arecont Vision SurroundVideo series, capable of 12 megapixel resolution at 5.2 fps, 180° viewing, true day/night with IR-cut filter, wide dynamic range (WDR), privacy masking, extended video motion detection, dual codec, PoE and with an IP66-rated outdoor-ready casing and IK10-rated dome.

Capable of 12 megapixel resolution at 5.2 frames per second, the Arecont Vision SurroundVideo AV12186DN outdoor dome IP camera delivers high quality video footage, with forensic zooming available in live and recorded view for clear identification. With 4 separate sensors, the AV12186DN provides 180° viewing of large areas and is suitable for outdoor use with an IP66-rated casing and IK10-rated dome. An IR-cut filter automatically switches the camera to black and white image capture at night-time from full colour mode during daylight; in addition to Arecont’s binning mode for increased camera sensitivity and Moonlight mode for extended exposure and proprietary noise cancellation for clear, polished security footage 24 hours a day.

With true wide dynamic range (WDR) imaging, the Arecont AV12186DN IP camera is able to capture scenes in challenging lighting environments where bright and dark areas exist simultaneously; this enables identification of objects and people in images that would otherwise be saturated. The Arecont AV12186DN camera delivers accurate and reliable monitoring using real-time extended motion detection that provides up to 1024 detection zones that can be configured per sensor. Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability enables quick and easy installation of a single cable to carry power and network connectivity whilst file compression via H.264 or MJPEG enables users to select the format best suited to requirements.
