Monitor and protect your home or business with the Alibi 4.0 Megapixel 65' IR WDR Outdoor Bullet IP Security Camera.
The network IP camera features a fixed manual lens with an 83° field of view, along with a 1/3″ CMOS progressive-scan image sensor that delivers up to 4.0 megapixel resolution at 20 frames per second (fps).
The 4.0 megapixel IP security camera features integrated IR LEDs that enable the camera to see up to 65′ in the dark. The camera features Smart IR, an Advanced Infrared Technology, which reduces over-exposure of the IR LED at the center of the image without washing out the subject at close range.
This IP camera also features H.264 OVC (Optimized Video Codec), a next-generation video compression format of the well-known H.264 video codec. H.264 OVC reduces IP camera file size by 50% (or greater), and enables the camera to see more detail, while reducing bandwidth and storage requirements. It also allows for faster, more fluid remote viewing, along with the ability to view more channels remotely.
The camera also offers H.264 and MJPEG video compression formats to further meet your application needs.
The megapixel IP camera is equipped with true day/night (ICR) which captures sharp, detailed color images during the day and black and white images in low light. 120db true wide dynamic range (WDR) and 3D digital noise reduction (3D-DNR) produce exceptional image quality with less noise in variable and low light conditions.
The camera’s IP66 weather-rated enclosure provides protection from particles such as dust and sand, as well as harsh weather conditions, including rain and snow.
The camera can be powered via 802.3af PoE or 12 Vdc power supply, and is ONVIF Profile S compliant for greater device compatibility and ONVIF Profile G approved.
This camera also features an event log, and event notification, along with email notification.
The free Alibi Witness mobile app enables you to view your live and recorded video remotely—from anywhere, from your Android or iOS mobile device.

Megapixel Resolution – Cover more area and see more detail. Megapixel cameras can cover a larger area without compromising image quality. Megapixel resolution cameras deliver high-definition images with much greater detail. They are ideal where a greater level of detail is needed, such as for facial recognition and license plate identification.
Smart IR – Captures clear, sharp images in low light. Smart IR (smart infrared) automatically adjusts the amount of infrared light used to illuminate a scene as the subject moves closer to or further away from the camera, resulting in optimal exposure and a sharp, clear image that is neither washed out or too dark.
H.264 OVC (Optimized Video Codec) – Improves image quality and reduces bandwidth requirements. H.264 OVC is a next-generation video compression format of the well-known H.264 video codec. H.264 OVC is an optimized compression technology that improves image quality and reduces bandwidth for security applications. It also allows for faster, more fluid remote viewing, along with the ability to view more channels remotely.
True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) – Gain better images in diverse lighting conditions. This feature enables the camera to take multiple images while capturing video at different exposure levels. It combines the images for the best balance, and compensates for lights and darks for perfectly exposed images in both bright and shadowed areas of a diversely lit scene. True WDR also reduces video noise.
3D Digital Noise Reduction (3D-DNR) – Get exceptional video image quality with less noise. 3D-DNR incorporates frame-to-frame noise reduction with spatial noise reduction to produce clear video images with less noise, in low light conditions. Noise reduction is critical for video because noise affects image quality. Cameras with 3D-DNR produce sharper, more accurate video images.
True Day/Night (ICR) – Enjoy around-the-clock surveillance. Our day/night cameras with true day/night (ICR) deliver a sharp image in low light and nighttime conditions. An IR cut filter blocks out infrared light to produce true-to-life color images during the daytime. In low light conditions and at night, the filter is removed, letting infrared light pass through to provide crisp, well-defined black and white images.
Free Alibi Witness iOS/Android App – View your video remotely from anywhere. Enjoy convenient remote access from your iOS or Android device with a FREE app.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) – Receive power and data through a single cable. PoE allows IP (internet protocol) devices to receive power and data over existing LAN (local area network) cabling. This eliminates the need to install a separate power cable, simplifies installation, and lowers cabling costs.
ONVIF Profile S Compliant – Enjoy greater compatibility with more devices. This product conforms to ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) specifications for IP-based security products. ONVIF defines a common protocol for the exchange of information between different network video devices from different manufacturers, to allow greater interoperability in multi-vendor network video systems.

Not that weather resistant
After about 1.5 months in use outside the lens on the inside builds up with condensation and destroys the picture. Would not suggest using this outside.
IR has never worked from day 1 but have been living without that capability.
This may be fine for an indoor use camera.
Response and review
In regards to not having a quality image at night.
Log in to the camera individually and change your exposer setting.
That will give you a brilliant night shot.
In regards to the camera the only complaint I have is its ability to hold its position for more than a month. I find that they are shifting very easily with the wind. Other than that. No issues.
This is a great camera at any price. For $117 (20% off price) it is a steal. The detail that this camera gives is absolutely stunning. Nightime images are just OK, but daytime images are spectacular. And it comes with the usual full set of parameters and settings that all the IP cameras have.
I recently purchased one for a demonstration model. Daytime picture is clear and with good detail. But considering this is a 4.0 megapixel and a fixed lens, I expected the picture to be considerably better than the 2.1 megapixel HD-SDI and newer HD-TVI,s I have been installing for customers. Night time however is totally unacceptable. It claims it can see 65". IT DOES NOT. In fact the tiny little LEDS barely light up a dark area 15' away. This camera may be ok for use as an indoor camera but for outdoor no way.
