Product Description

The Lorex SG-100X 4-channel Weatherproof B/W Camera is a high-quality and compact camera that provides you with both a convenient set of features and long-term durability. Ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications, this unit is constructed with a weatherproof aluminum housing that allows pan/tilt movement to provide maximum viewing flexibility. With a high light sensitivity and a high resolution, the Lorex SG-100X utilizes wireless transmission and operation, making it perfect for security surveillance, or any other situation requiring 24-hour monitoring, in areas that are openly exposed to the weather.

This camera utilizes a 0.33-inch black-and-white interline-transfer CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor, with up to 512 by 492 effective picture elements. Built with a 3.6-millimeter fixed lens, the SG-100X has a high resolution of 420 horizontal TVL (TV lines), and a minimum illumination of 0.5 Lux. This four-channel camera has a wireless transmission range of up to 250 feet without obstructions, easily connects to most televisions and VCRs, and features listen-in audio and a swivel-head design for ceiling-mount applications. The SG-100X features a built-in electronic auto-iris for automatic light compensation, and has a shutter speed ranging from 1/60 to 1/100,000 of a second. This unit runs on 12-volt DC power, and has an operating temperature of 14- to 140-degrees Fahrenheit.

Technical Features:

  • Sensitivity: minimum illumination of 0.5 Lux
  • Wireless transmission range: 250 feet (open field)
  • Effective picture elements: 512 x 492 pixels
  • Resolution: 420 horizontal TVL
  • Lens type: 3.6 mm fixed
Designed for use under trying circumstances, the Lorex SG-100X camera deserves serious consideration as a great addition to any surveillance system subjected to unprotected weather conditions. Quick and easy to install due to wireless operation, this Lorex camera comes completely assembled and ready to use and is dependable even in low-light conditions. User's should note that the CCD sensor may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light, so the camera should not be mounted or pointed directly at the sun or other bright-light sources.

About Surveillance Camera Technical Features
Lux rating is the measurement used to indicate how sensitive a camera is to light, and stands for the level of light reflected off a piece of paper by a candle from one meter away. Thus a sensitivity of three Lux would mean a camera could generate an acceptable picture of a piece-of-paper-sized object that was illuminated by the equivalent of three candles from one meter away. The lower the Lux level, the better the camera's ability to work in low-light conditions. The camera's resolution should be greater than or equal to the resolution supported by the system's recorder or monitor. The S/N, or signal to noise ratio, is an important measure of a camera's quality. A poor camera, low-light conditions or poor wiring causes "noise" which consumes processing power and disk space. A camera with a wide dynamic range is ideal, especially for recording areas in which both indoor and outdoor light are present. CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors provide high-quality images that are less susceptible to noise. CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors offer less image quality, but are usually more cost-effective and energy efficient.

About Surveillance Camera Housings
Most video surveillance systems can be deployed for outside use when a proper camera housing is used. Key features for housings are a blower/fan to keep the camera cool in the summer, and a heater for the cold-weather months and to keep the glass from fogging up. Most housings can accept many types of security cameras. An outdoor dome housing is used for external mounting when tamper resistance or pan/tilt functionality is desired.
