Private Security Camera


This weatherproof CCTV camera on a private building is a DS-2CC1173N-VFIR, manufactured and sold by Hikvision of Hangzhou, China. This recent model incorporates a 1/3” Sony CCD sensor, and a 2.8 – 12mm lens with an aperture of f/1.4 and a viewing angle of 92° – 27.2°. Visible around the lens on the front of the device are infrared LEDs for improved vision in low light. The embedded software has options including night vision, masking areas as ‘privacy zones,’ and motion detection. As it is part of a private security system, there’s no way to know whether it is being monitored live or simply stored for future reference.
