Product Description


The Pro Video CVC-340LC B/W Outdoor Motion Sensor Security with Lights and Bronze Housing is a high-quality surveillance camera that can be "hidden" in plain view. Easily installed and integrated into any Pro Video surveillance system, this weatherproof camera is hidden inside a fully functional outdoor flood-style light fixture. With a built-in motion sensor providing control, the lights perform the dual function of lighting up the cameras viewing area and startling any ill-intentioned individuals. Designed for clandestine applications, the Pro Video CVC-340LC has a high resolution that makes it well-suited to discreet security surveillance of any area outside 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 wide-angle lens, and provides 512 by 492 effective picture elements. The Pro Video CVC-340LC has a high resolution of 420 horizontal TVL (TV lines), is extremely sensitive to light with a minimum illumination of 0.02 Lux, and achieves a S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio of 46 dB or better. The Pro Video CVC-340LC 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. Including motion sensor-controlled lights and a 0.5-inch threaded mount that is compatible with standard electrical boxes, the CVC-340LC comes complete with a built-in automatic electronic shutter with speeds ranging from 1/60 to 1/100,000 of a second.

Technical Features:

  • S/N ratio: better than 46 dB
  • Sensitivity: minimum illumination of 0.02 Lux
  • Effective pixels: 512 by 492 pixels
  • Horizontal resolution: 420 TVL
  • Operating temperatures: -14 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Dimensions: 9.75 x 7 x 8.5 inches (W x D x H)
The Pro Video CVC-340LC 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. The CVC-340LC comes with a surface-mount weatherproof electrical box that further protects the camera, but does not include light bulbs. 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.
