Corridor Mode

Corridor Mode

This camera has Corridor Mode.

Corridor mode allows you to flip the image on its side so that you can change the 16x9 ratio to 9x16. This is advantageous in the case of hallways, side yards, or corridors (hence the name) where the extra space vertical space is needed and the extra horizontal space would only show you more wall or fence area. To use corridor mode, install the camera with the lens pointed 90 degrees from center and then enable the corridor mode on via our software.



ONVIF compliant

ONVIF Conformant

This IP camera is ONVIF S Conformant.

ONVIF is an open industry standard encoding language for the interface of IP-based physical security products.



bitrate 1080p 30 fps

Bitrate - 8MP

At 8MP and 20 FPS, while recording at H.265, this camera should use 5Mbps of the NVR's bitrate budget. (With H.264, it should use ~10Mbps).
