Product Description


The Pro Video CVC-265PIR B/W Camera in Non-Operating PIR Motion Sensor Housing is a high-quality surveillance camera that can be hidden in plain site. Easily installed and integrated into any Pro Video surveillance system, this hidden camera appears to observers as a regular motion detector, allowing you to monitor a room discreetly. Designed for clandestine applications, the Pro Video CVC-265PIR has an extremely high resolution that makes it well-suited to discreet security surveillance of an area in your home or office.

This camera utilizes a 0.33-inch black-and-white CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor with a 3.6-millimeter pinhole lens, and provides 512 by 492 effective picture elements. The Pro Video CVC-265PIR has a high resolution of 420 horizontal TVL (TV lines), is sensitive to light with a minimum illumination of 0.5 Lux, and achieves a S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio of 46 dB or better. The Pro Video CVC-265PIR uses the EIA (Electronics Industries Association) scanning system, and includes a standard RCA video output with a BNC (Bayonet Neill-Concelman) adapter. This unit runs on 12-volts DC power, and can operate in temperatures ranging from 14 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. The CVC-265PIR is constructed in a durable ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) plastic PIR-style (Passive InfraRed) housing, and comes complete with a built-in automatic electronic shutter with speeds ranging from 1/50 to 1/100,000 of a second.

Technical Features:

  • S/N ratio: better than 46 dB
  • Sensitivity: minimum illumination of 0.5 Lux
  • Effective pixels: 512 by 492 pixels
  • Horizontal resolution: 420 TVL
  • Operating temperatures: 14 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Dimensions: 2.75 x 2 x 4.75 inches (W x D x H)
The Pro Video CVC-265PIR camera is a super-discreet and high-quality addition to any surveillance system. This camera comes completely assembled and ready to go, and is easy to both install and set up. Users should be aware that this unit does not have motion-detection capabilities and can not be used as a motion detector. Users 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.
