Motorized Zoom Auto-Focus Lens
An Auto Focus lens with motorized zoom removes the need for the complicated and detailed manual focus adjustment or zoom configurations at the camera. The motorized zoom module allows you to adjust the camera's view and zoom remotely, without the need to be near the camera. Then, the autofocus lens communicates with the camera to automatically determine what area of the camera’s FoV should be in focus.
CleanView™ Hydrophobic Dome Coating Repels Water, Dust and Grease
Digital Watchdog's new CleanView™ dome enclosures repel water and dust to maintain a camera's image quality. A technologically-advanced coating alleviates spotting and smudges that can affect the performance of the camera.
