LOREX W482CAD

Post by Todd » Fri Oct 15, 2021 9:38 pm

Hi,

I recently bought these from Costco (on sale) and I am amazed at the night vision quality. What I don't understand is how can this camera be so great at night with only a 1/3" sensor? I thought a bigger sensor would be needed, like a 1/1.8" sensor?

I also have many Amcrest and Dahua cameras, but I am really surprised by this LOREX night vision...which is probably a rebranded Dahua (model unknown).

Here are some screen grabs comparing the LOREX and a Dahua IPC-K35AP looking through my front window, so no infrared....just my porch light for ambient light.

LOREX advertizes them as dual band, but they cannot see 5Ghz (confirmed with tech support). They also only have a fixed 0.5 I-Frame, but other than that I am very pleased with it.

It might be fine for a static image but with motion you will have a blurred moving person or moving object.

No, moving objects are not any more blurry than other cameras I have...so shutter speed is good.
