5MP IP Bullet Camera, 2.8-12mm Manual Varifocal Lens, H.265, 164ft IR (with PoE, Audio In/Out, Alarm I/O, Reset, and BNC Video Output)

Monitor your premises with this high resolution 5MP H.265 IP camera from SumoSecurity.

Featuring a 2.8-12mm varifocal lens with a 1/2.8" progressive scan CMOS image sensor, the IP camera delivers HD resolutions up to 2592 x 1944 (5 megapixels), bringing sharp and clear images for your residential or commercial applications.

Sony STARVIS Exmor R CMOS Sensor

Using the Sony STARVIS Exmor R CMOS sensor, the camera can provide color in extremely low light applications through back illuminated technology. This is useful in scenarios where you have some light, and require color instead of black / white. (Note that you will need to toggle the settings to color mode to enable)


H.265 Compression

The IP camera features H.265 / High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) compression to deliver the same HD quality over lower bitrates when compared to H.264. For users looking to consume less bandwidth on their network, the compression technology used by these IP cameras will do that. Note: H.264 fallback can be setup on the IP camera for older NVRS.

IR Cut Filter

The IR cut filter delivers more efficient color reproduction during the daytime by preventing IR and UV rays from causing distortion and discoloration. At night, the IR cut filter is automatically removed to allow the IR light to operate.

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

Delivers balanced images in uneven lighting conditions. This is especially helpful in applications where the camera is monitoring an area with lots of natural light, such as a window or the entrance to a parking garage.


30FPS Recording

Record at 30FPS at 5MP resolution to get smoother movement on playback.

BNC Video Output for Testing

A BNC video output is included, allowing HD analog test monitors to be plugged in for testing and maintenance. This allows installers to test the camera when mounting and prevents the need to purchase expensive IP camera testers that may limit resolution or version support.

BNC video output testing

PoE Support

To enable easier installation, the camera allows you to run a Cat5e / 6 cable to deliver both data and power. This eliminates the need to run separate power for the camera.


AI Facial Recognition

When paired with our NVRs, the IP camera includes support for facial recognition technology that allows prediction / matching of faces.
* Please note, certain states or cities may prohibit facial recognition surveillance. By default, AI facial recognition is disabled on our cameras.

AI facial detection

Remote Viewing

Free apps provided for iOS and Android allow you to view live and recorded video anywhere on-the-go when paired with a compatible NVR (Note: For full optimization of the IP camera, we recommend the use of our H.265 NVRs).

DVR apps

Weather Resistant

Install outside in the elements. With an IP66 ingress rating and -30 ~ +55°C (-22 ~ 131°F) operating temperature, the camera is suited for a wide range of outdoor applications.

Outdoor installation

Audio In / Out

Audio in / out ports are included via attached cable that allows external microphones and speakers to be connected, allowing you to record and output audio along with your video.

Alarm I/O

Alarm ports are included to connect the IP camera to an alarm system if necessary.

Reset Button

A physical reset button is included to allow easy resetting of the IP camera without disconnecting the power.

2.8mm - 12mm Varifocal Lens

Adjust the angle of view between the ranges of 2.8mm to 12mm. At the 2.8mm setting, you get the widest view angle, but people and objects will appear smaller. At 12mm, the view angle will be smaller, but people and objects appear larger.
