The IN-5905 HD is weather proof and wireless outdoor camera. Built-in high-powered infrared diodes allow you to see deep into the dark. The integrated IR cut filter on the other hand allows for the capturing of native colours, as seen by the human eye. Through the use of an efficient h.264 compression codec it is able of recording video files on a MicroSD Memory Card with comparably small size but best picture results.

For surveillance purposes, the IN-5905 HD is ready for implementation to your existing system. With the help of the handy Onvif Protocol, integration is just a few button presses away. But also as a stand-alone device it offers you a number of alarming features like Email Notification or compatibility with Signalling Devices. The WPS function allows you to connect the camera to your WiFi network with a press of a button. Accessing your camera from the internet is even easier. The Point-2-Point connection can be established by scanning a QR code with our smartphone app. The InstarVision mobile app is available for Android, iOS and Windows Phone 8.

Comparison between IN-5905 HD and IN-5907 HD

  • Slide 1: The camera model IN-5905 HD offers a wide angle lense and should be used at close distance to the area under surveillance - the model is ideal to be installed in entrance areas.
  • Slide 2: The wide angle lense enables you to keep an eye over a wide area. But by doubling the field of view on the 720p sensor (compared to the standard lense that is installed in the IN-5907 HD), you lose half of the details inside your image. It is recommend to use the IN-5907 HD for installation at larger distance.
  • Slide 3: Installing a big camera close to the area under surveillance, can be distracting. The model IN-5905 HD is constructed to be unobtrusive.
