Hello,

I have purchased a Hikvision DS-2DE4425IW-DE (S5) IP PTZ camera and I'm looking for a decent external microphone for it. The microphone will be used in an outside environment so I need one with a decent IPxx rating.

Would like it to cover a large area (within a 45ft x 45ft - 15m x 15m) shed.

Any recommendations? Decent sound quality required, but nothing beyond the norm.

TIA.

Anyone - seems really difficult to find an external grade microphone that is suitable for an IP camera.
Using it for a calving camera - so nothing covert!

Hi,
Initially your subject said speaker, but your query said microphone.
I've edited the subject now.
I'll ask the team to see what we can get that is suitable and compatible and ask them to respond here.

Apologies that was a mistake.
Yes, would appreciate a reply as I'm struggling to find anything suitable. I did look at the Hikvision DS-2FP2020, but it seems to only have internal rating.
To clarify, the microphone will be used in a cattle shed, so although under cover the cattle breath and washing down etc would necessitate a level of waterproofing.
