This Alibi 3.0 Megapixel 165' IR Varifocal WDR Outdoor Bullet IP Security Camera provides a cost-effective, professional IP security solution for monitoring your home or business.
The high-resolution IP camera features a 1/2.8″ CMOS progressive-scan image sensor that delivers up to 3.0 megapixel resolution at 45 frames per second (fps), and 1080p full-HD video at 60 frames per second (fps). The high frame rate is ideal for capturing sharper detail during fast activity, such as speeding vehicles and money-counting.
The camera is equipped with a 2.8-12 mm DC driven auto iris motorized varifocal lens that automatically focuses and simplifies installation. The varifocal lens offers a 91.2° (Wide) – 28.3° (Tele) field of view to meet your application needs.
The camera features Advanced Infrared Technology, which includes Smart IR and Full Frame Illumination.
Smart IR reduces over-exposure of the IR LED at the center of the image without washing out the subject at close range.
Full Frame Illumination (FFI) delivers a wider illumination spread and offers several advantages over standard IR technology, including:
The 3.0 megapixel IP security camera features integrated IR LEDs that enable the camera to see up to 165′ in the dark.
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 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 varifocal IP camera offers advanced video content analytics that provide intelligent alerts and recording, along with reducing bandwidth requirements.
The video content analytics this camera offers includes:
The camera’s IP67 weather-rated enclosure provides protection from particles such as dust and sand, as well as harsh weather conditions, including rain and snow.
The camera has a -40 °F ~ 140 °F extreme temperature operating range and a built-in heater protects the camera’s components during cold weather.
The megapixel IP bullet camera supports up to 128GB micro SD cards (sold separately). The camera can be powered via 802.3af or 802.3at 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.
Full Frame Illumination – Illuminates more area. Full Frame Illumination (FFI) delivers a wider IR illumination spread and produces a brighter, clearer picture in low light and at night – without hot spots. FFI reduces video noise, for a clearer image, along with reducing bandwidth consumption and video storage requirements.
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.
Motorized Varifocal Lens – Simplifies installation. The camera features a motorized varifocal lens that offers easy adjustment of the camera’s focal length and simplifies installation. The lens automatically focuses, eliminating user focus errors.
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.
Video Content Analytics (VCA) – Delivers intelligent alerts. The camera features advanced built-in video content analytics, such as line crossing and intrusion detection, to deliver more precise alerts and recordings, reduce false positives, and save hard drive storage requirements.
Built-in Heater – Withstands cold temperatures. The camera features a built-in heater which makes it ideal for use in cold climates. The heater helps to protect the camera’s electrical components, prevents fogging and condensation, and keeps it operational in freezing temperatures. The all-weather construction supports a wide temperature operating range so that the camera is able to withstand sub-zero temperatures.
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.
