Grundig GCI-K1526V HD 2MP outdoor dome IP camera, day/night with up to 25m IR light, two-way audio and SD recording

Overview of the Grundig GCI-K1526V

This product is no longer available. For an alternative please see Vista VK2 1080BIR35V16E outdoor IP camera with varifocal lens, HD 1080p and 20m infrared night-vision.

This compact Grundig outdoor dome IP camera provides HD 1080p video at 25 frames per second and a 2 megapixel CMOS sensor producing highly detailed images. An IK10 vandal-resistant rating and an IP66 outdoor rating mean the GCI-K1526V is a robust and durable dome network camera and can withstand harsh temperatures and outdoor conditions.

Day/night functionality is supported by this Grundig network camera through the use of an infrared cut filter which automatically switches to capture footage in black and white in dark conditions. This night-time vision is enhanced further by an integrated IR light with radiant distance of up to 25m, ideal for high quality outdoor night time surveillance.

Wide dynamic range enhances contrast in images with both highlights and shadows in and makes all detail in a scene visible. 2D and 3D noise reduction optimise images further by removing pixelation and smear from noise captured in dark conditions, improving image detail and clarity. Motion detection and anti-tamper detection can raise an alarm if activity is identified and alert the operator to take the appropriate action, eliminating the need for continual manual surveillance. Privacy masking enables the user to hide certain areas of the cameras view from operators. SD storage allows for data to be stored locally on to an SD card (not included) allowing for storage management flexibility and acting as a backup device in case of a network failure.

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply (please select from the above drop down menu).

Key features & benefits

  • 2 megapixel CMOS sensor produces highly detailed images, HD 1080p video at 25 frames per second for high detail, smooth video
  • ‘True’ day/night capability with IR light with radiant distance of up to 25m provide a 24 hour solution with the capture of monochrome images in low light conditions
  • Vandal resistant IK10 rating means the camera can withstand tampering attempts and raise an alarm if any are detected
  • IP66 rating means the camera is protected from rain and dust, making it durable and robust for outside surveillance
  • H.264 compression reduces file size without affecting original data and allows for bandwidth flexibility
  • Small, compact dome design facilitates unobtrusive surveillance
  • Edge recording onto an integrated SD card (not included) provides a flexible storage method and reduces bandwidth usage across a network as footage is stored locally
  • Wide dynamic range and 3D noise reduction optimise image quality so that clear, detailed images are produced
  • Privacy masking enables 5 areas to be selected to be hidden from view
  • Two-way audio supports transmitting and receiving audio data simultaneously
  • Power over Ethernet support allows for the camera to be powered by one cable providing both network connectivity and power, saving time and money during installation or relocating a system
  • Included Grundig recording software supports mobile viewing and can manage 16 cameras

Typical applications

The Grundig GCI-K1526V IP camera is suited to outdoor applications where surveillance is needed at all times and that may be subject to harsh weather conditions and/or potential tampering attempts e.g. car park entrances and schools. The IR light allows for night-vision to produce images up to 25 metres away, providing high quality images and a large coverage area.

Compatible recording platforms



  • Grundig GCI-K1526V network camera
  • Grundig GCMS recording software (16 channel license)
