Product overview

• Clear HD resolution 720p camera with powerful night vision up to 20m

What quality picture does my camera capture?
The Swann PRO-A851V has a high quality 720p resolution image giving you a detailed image of what you’re viewing. With its adjustable viewing angle of 25-65 degrees this is a great camera for covering entrance and exits, corridors or driveways. Continue recording even at night with the powerful 20m night vision and get the best possible image as the camera switches to black and white to improve the image contrast.

How do I record from my camera?
This camera can only be used in combination with Swann’s Professional HD digital video recorders including DVR4-4400, DVR8-4400 or DVR16-4400. The PRO-A851V comes supplied with everything you need to set it up including screws, fixings, power supply and 18m of BNC cable. You can even keep an eye on your system on the go on your smartphone using a compatible app and a networked DVR.

Can I use my camera outdoors?
Great in all weather conditions with its sturdy aluminium body and weatherproof IP66 rating or for use inside with its easily directed domed unit. The domed camera is ideal for any area that is covered such as bike shelters, shops or warehouses and should be placed on the ceiling or overhang pointed at the area you wish to cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality ( Must Have )... I purchased 2 Swann Pro A851 720p dome camera's and installed they are just great bits of kit would recommend I'm planning to buy another 2 just so good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good camera Pros: Solid build well constructed aluminum shell, good length cable clear image and great night vision. Cons: power connector plug on cable feels loose when inserted into power plug on camera and the focus screw feels very sloppy resulting in hard to set focus meaning a hard knock could affect image resulting in the focus needing reset again. Photo added of the camera installed outside pointing down at my garden - focal length 2.8mm

Can I use this done camera with the Swann DVR4-1580? I would like to swap one of the 4 cameras that come with the package for a dome camera 

Asked by: Simon46
Yes this would be suitable This is an AHD camera so in order for the DVR 8-1580 recorder to decode the images you must tell it to use AHD decoding. To do this go to the DISPALY menu / into the CAMERA menu / choose the CHANNEL you wish to connect this camera to and change the camera mode from TVI to AHD.
