Product Description

Speco Technologies CVC-627 Waterproof Day/Night Bullet Camera - Silver CVC-627 Surveillance & Network Cameras

Amazon.com

The SPECO CVC-627 Waterproof Color Bullet Day/Night Camera with IR LEDs is great for any outdoor application. Constructed of durable waterproof aluminum, this camera comes with a removable sunshade that helps eliminate glare and can even operate fully submerged in water. Designed to provide a high-resolution picture even in low-light and no-light conditions, the SPECO CVC-627 is a great addition to any video surveillance system, especially in round-the-clock applications subject to inclement weather conditions.

This bullet camera utilizes a 0.25-inch color CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor with a 3.6-millimeter fixed lens, and provides 510-by-492 effective pixels. The CVC-627 has a high resolution of 420 horizontal TVL (TV lines), and achieves a S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio of 48 dB or better. Already extremely sensitive to light with a minimum illumination of 0.01 Lux to infinity, this camera has 12 built-in IR (InfraRed) LEDs (light emitting diodes) that allow it to receive a picture in total darkness (0 Lux) up to 45 feet away, as well as a CDS sensor that turns the IR illuminators on automatically when it gets dark. The SPECO CVC-627 operates on the NTSC TV scanning system, and includes a standard BNC (Bayonet Neill-Concelman) video output. This unit runs on 12-volts DC power and can operate in temperatures ranging from -14 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. The CVC-627 comes complete with automatic gain control and back-light compensation, and 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 48 dB
  • Minimum illumination: 0.01 Lux to infinity; 0 Lux via IR LEDs to 45-feet
  • Effective pixels: 510 by 492 pixels
  • Horizontal resolution: 420 TVL
  • Operating temperatures: -14 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Dimensions: 2.75 x 3.65 inches (diameter x depth)
The SPECO CVC-627 camera provides you with a high-quality color picture from a camera that can go virtually anywhere, and deserves serious consideration as an addition to any severe-weather security system. The CVC-627 comes completely assembled and ready to use, and includes a 60-foot cable that allows you to place it virtually anywhere. 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.

I recently purchased this camera and to my surprise I discovered SPECO will not honor the warranty for any piece of their equipment purchased on-line. They only extend the warranty to distributors and according to their customer service organization; distributors don't and aren't allowed to sell Speco products on-line.

I wish Amazon would have posted this fact before they offered this item for sale.

I PURCHASED THIS CAMERA FOR HOME SECURITY. I LIVE IN FLORIDA WHICH CAN PRODUCE HEAVY RAIN AT TIMES. THE CAMERA WAS PLACED UNDER THE EVE IN THE BACK CORNER OF MY HOME. THE RAIN DID NOT CAUSE ME ANY PROBLEMS. THE CAMERA HAD A ACCEPTABLE LEVEL OF COLOR FOR THE PRICE I PAID. THE COVERAGE IS VERY GOOD, ALMOST WIDE ANGLE COVERAGE. THE NIGHT COVERAGE IS ALSO ACCEPTABLE IF YOU HAVE MOTION DECTION DEVICES THAT WILL GO OFF AND PROVIDE SOME ILLUMINATION. THE CAMERA HAS APPROXIMATELY 20 FEET OF RANGE IN TOTAL DARKNESS WHICH YOU CAN BARLEY MAKE OUT AN OBJECT.

YOU CAN BUY ALL THE CONNECTORS AT RADIO SHACK TO HOOK UP THE CAMERA TO JUST ABOUT ANY DEVICE. OVERALL FOR THE MONEY THIS IS NOT A BAD COLOR CAMERA DURING DAYLIGHT HOURS.

This is a very nice camera for the money. It sees very well in the dark...probably about 10 to 20 feet on a pitch black night, and much farther when the moonlight hits the snow. WAY better than one of those X10 toys. The color isn't real vibrant during the day (it's black and white at night), but it is definately color and it's a clear picture. It may just be that I need to adjust my video adapter to improve the color.

I needed it to connect to an RCA video jack, but the connector was the wrong type. It is an RCA type of signal though so I was able to fudge something together to make it work without too much hassle. Would have been nice if it came with an adapter though. If it had, I may have given it 5 stars. Since I got it going, I've been very pleased with it.

If you would like some great software to make good use of this camera, check out [...] You can create macros to take snapshot automatically, view them remotely, control your lights, and much more. You'll need a video adapter of some sort to plug the camera into. I use the MSI VOX (it even has a TV tuner built in).

I got this to cover some blind spots around the front and side of our house. Color is real good and grandularity during the day is more than fine. During darkness, the night vision will only reachout about 15-20 ft. in total darkness. Like another reviewer mentioned, a light further out will help cover any weakness this may present. It seems to work well with the PC-4 card. You'll need a BNC cable connector as both ends are female. Having the 60 ft. of extra length is really nice and what seperates it from the other similar cameras in this class. Those only have a few feet which is why they are cheaper. You'll pay about the same with the extension cable that you may need to purchase with it.

I had hoped to utilize the infrared features of this camera for night time security at my business. In the daytime, the color is good and the resolution is OK. At night I have found that the range is not as robust as specified and that the scenes are typically dark even though at fairly close range. This is a good low cost camera for fully or moderately lit locations.

Recently put in four of these little beauties around my property, and attached them to a four channel DVR with motion detection. The camera's work great, a little difficulty with matching the wiring to the DVR. Overall good camera. Not the greatest resolution. Night vision with at least 30 feet, note fixed focus.

Good camera for the money.

I agree with the others here, the range at night is a bit limited if the area is in complete darkness but when one lives in the city that is usually not a problem. The wire from the camera terminates with a BNC connector but this cam will work with a standard TV. I suggest going to Radio Shack and get a BNC Female to Phono Plug Adapter

(Model: 278-250 | Catalog #: 278-250) along with a short cable with RCA male at one end and RCA female at the other end and you are good to go (Radio Shack also has this in a short length).

Ok, you have two of these great cam's and one TV, what are you going to do? I found a cheap way to automatically switch between up to 4 cams with the output of the switcher going to one TV. I found a Philips Automatic Video Selector and RF Modulator (MPN: PH61153) at WalMart (its not on their website you will have to go to the store) that, when set up correctly, will allow you to plug in up to four cam's and automatically cycle thru each input/cam every 5+ seconds (scan speed is adjustable). The PH61153 will skip any input that does not have something plugged into it so I can use it with just my two cams for now. The PH61153 was intended to automatically switch between video componets (DVD, VCR, DVR, etc) but for $24ish you can't go wrong. BTW: I have a second PH61153 and use it for its intended purpose of automatically switching between video componets.

You can't go wrong with this camera! I already have two and plan to get two more soon.
