Powerful performance meets incredible design with our 4K / 8MP vandal dome security camera. With 8MP of incredible 4K high definition video and its 120dB Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), this camera will deliver incredible video every time. Plus, with its 100 foot infrared range and IP67 weatherproof rating, neither darkness nor crazy storms will get in the way of your surveillance.
But where this camera really shines is in its vandal-dome design. It’s small, compact, sleek, and modern. Available in two different colors, you’re sure to get a camera that looks great, blends into its environment, and fits just about anywhere. Its all-metal construction and its vandal-proof glass dome makes it nearly impossible for someone to come along and tamper with the lens or vandalize the camera.
This camera’s construction gives it a ton of benefits over bullet- or turret-style cameras. But there are many more reasons why this may be the perfect security camera for you. To learn more about its specifications and features, keep reading!
4K Ultra HD Resolution
The IPCT-218G-DM captures video up to a resolution of 8MP @ 15 FPS, which is 3840×2160 pixels, one of the highest resolutions available.
2.8MM Fixed Lens
The IPCT-218G-DM has a 2.8mm Fixed Lens. That means it’s fixed at one length; it can’t optically zoom in and out. The longer the focal length on a fixed lens camera, the more zoomed in it is and the more close-up detail you’ll be able to see. But the shorter the focal length, the wider the field of view and the more area your surveillance will cover.
The IPCT-218G-DM has a fixed length of 2.8mm, giving it a horizontal field of view of 98°.
IK10 Vandalproof Rating
The IPCT-218G-DM has an Impact Protection (IK) rating of 10, which is as high as the scale goes. If a vandal wants to try to bust open this camera, more power to them. Literally, they’re going to need a lot more power, because this thing is practically indestructible. That’s why these dome-style cameras are often called vandal-proof domes, or vandal domes for short.
IP67 Weatherproof Rating
This camera has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 67. This means the camera is completely protected from dust and other solid particles. It can also withstand being submerged in 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes.
Rest assured that when you install this camera outside, it will have no problem braving the toughest of storms.
100′ Night Vision IR Range
When the sun goes down or the lights go out, this camera switches on its own onboard infrared LED lights. These lights, which are invisible to the human eye, allow the camera to continue functioning and recording video 24/7, day or night. And since its IR range covers up to 100 feet, you’re not going to miss anything that happens on your camera’s feeds, even if it happens in pitch-black darkness.

If you’re creating a new system out of our H-Series cameras, set up is insanely easy with our H-Series line of POE NVRs. Simply plug the camera into the back of the H-Series NVR and you have instant video on the recorder’s HDMI interface.
