SUPER High Res OSD Dome Camera with IR Varifocal Lens & Mechanical IR filter™

This UL listed security dome camera has an impact resistant dome and a tough aluminum alloy one-piece base.  It uses a Sony Super HAD II CCD video sensor and advanced signal processing to provide the user with video images at 750-TV lines or greater.

"IR mode" is automatic and turns on when the light level drops to a preset threshold. You can adjust the IR levels and threshold using controls inside the camera and with the OSD menu.


SMART LED control is built into the camera's video processing chipset. It detects the amount of infrared light on the subject and turns IR LEDS on/off as necessary to keep video quality high. To little or too much IR (washout) is never a problem with this camera.

Many Features

This CCTV security camera has many features designed to make life easy for professionals. It has an aspherical varifocal lens and a mechanical IR filter which work in concert to produce great video in day and night without the need for focus adjustment ( or "tweaking") since no IR focus shift can be seen.

An RS485 input is provided for serial communications with a compatible DVR. You can change OSD and setup parameters remotely, using the built-in functions that the DVR uses to communicate with PTZ cameras.

An internal balun makes it easy if you are connecting the camera to a UTP cable, which is often the case in large and sprawling installations.

Installation is fast and easy thanks to an internal video connector that lets you hook up a portable test monitor so the installer can aim and focus the camera without resorting to multiple trips up a scaffold or ladder.

OSD Menu

The on-screen display menu lets you set up advanced operating features that include backlight compensation, high light compensation, digital wide dynamic range (DWDR), digital defog slow shutter and day/night operation. It also uses PrePro, which sets all OSD controls to a professional setting that is good to go in most surveillance environments. PrePro is a huge time saver.

Stop Intruders Before They Trespass

Along with its many other technological enhancements, The COR-557HIM dome camera is equipped with a bright white deterrence LED that can be set to a flashing state (or turned off). This bright "strobe" makes the camera impossible to overlook, especially at night. It also doubles as a power indicator and can draw attention to your business or location at night. When would-be criminals realize a building or room has CCTV cameras, they are likely to look elsewhere for an easier target.
