The Clover SB720 B/W Outdoor Auto-pan Dome Camera is an easy to use surveillance camera that can be mounted almost anywhere. It allows users to remotely monitor warehouses, construction sites, parking lots, office buildings and more. The dome is both weather-resistant and tamper-resistant, so you can install your camera in more trying environments. Easy to install with plug-and-play connections, the SB720 is designed for both indoor and outdoor use.
This camera utilizes a 0.33-inch black-and-white CCD (charge-coupled device) sensor, with a resolution of 512-by-492 pixels or 380 TVL (TV lines). The SB720 includes a 3.6mm lens, with a minimum illumination down to 0.2 Lux and a better-than 46 dB S/N (signal to noise) ratio. The unit's exposure times range from 1/60 to 1/100,000 of a second, ensuring a high picture quality. The SB720 has adjustable pan-angle settings that let you set the camera to automatically pan up to 270-degrees, as well as a manually adjustable tilt. This camera can provide a frame rate of up to 30 frames-per-second (frames per second), equivalent to a 460-NTSC analog video. Powered via a 12-volt external DC power supply (included), it can operate in temperatures from -10 to 50-degrees Celsius.
Overall, the Clover SB720 provides you with a reliable, easy-to-use camera with the ability to automatically pan for area-wide monitoring. The tamper-resistant and weather-resistant dome housing makes the SB720 a powerful addition to any security system. Quick and easy to install, this camera comes completely assembled and ready to use. Users should note, however, that the CCD sensor may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light.

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 Pan/Tilt Cameras
A Pan/Tilt Camera has the ability to pan ("move" horizontally), or tilt ("move" vertically). IP cameras often have pan/tilt capability. A pan/tilt camera is ideal for monitoring of situations that need a continual real-time adjustment of the views.
About Dome Cameras
A dome camera is one of the most common indoor security camera styles. Mounted on the ceiling, and often built to be tamper-resistant, dome cameras are designed to be visually appealing and more secure than other types of security cameras. A true dome camera enables a continuous 360-degree pan and 90-degree tilt operation, providing for extensive room coverage. One disadvantage of dome cameras is that they usually are not suitable for low-light conditions and must be used in well-lit areas.
