How do i zoom in and out?do i set it using the software or how do i do it?

What is the current delivery for one off DS-2CD2012-I-6mm 1.3MP IR Mini Bullet Camera

I am thinking of buying the hikvision camera but I would like to know if there is a junction box or extension box available to make the Rj45 connection. It dies not seem to secure to have the connection point outside the camera housing.

If you could provide such a part number it would be very appreciated.


Thanks for replying to my questions related to powering up via POE.
One more and I'm done :)

So, 4 cameras, POE Switch. Now about recording and storage. A Hikvision NVR would be the straightforward solution, however it would be expensive even if it would replace the switch (if I'll get a POE NVR). Also I'll need to get a HDD for the NVR.

But I already own a Western Digital My Book Live 1TB NAS. Would it be possible to record from the cameras directly on the NAS withough having a PC on all the time to run the software ? Or would this be possible at all, even with the PC turned on all the time?


Thanks for the answer to my previous question.
I want to install 4 of these cameras so the switch is the way to go for me (TP-Link TL-SG1008PE). Less hassle compared to 4 injectors.

However I still have a question. I see that this camera has 2 mother connectors, one for the RJ45 network cable and one for the 12V power input.

Do I also need a POE splitter at the end of my cable coming from the POE router so that both are filled ?
Will the camera be powered with the the rj45 connector filled and the 12V connector left unused?


Will this camera be powered by the ethernet cable coming directly from a switch or router without any other POE injector along the way ?

Hello Andy
I am looking to install a pair of these cameras to an existing camera system that runs over wireless network.
As I do not see wifi antennas I take it that they are not wifi enabled what would i other equipment would be needed to get them running wireless.
On the datasheet the 4mm and 12mm lens are mentioned as optional.
Do you sell the 4mm lens and how much it costs?
Hi, I want to install this camera outdoors and connect an ethernet cable to the cameras rj45 connector, in order to do this i need to protect ferom the elements via a small junction box but the female rj45 will obviously not fit through the waterproof gland connectors opening. So my question is, Is it ok for me to cut the female connector off the end of the camera lead and then attach my own connectors up inside the junction box after routing through the gland? Is the cable normal ethernet cable or is there some special feature to the cable used in ip cameras, hope this makes sense. Thanks
What mode of POE does it use? (A or B)
my PSE switch is working in MODE A only , will it work?
Hi, Can you clear something up for me please. I am looking to install this in an outbuilding but do not want to run wires between buildings. Can i provide a standard 12dc to this camera then run an ethernet cable from the camera to a powerline adapter and operate the camera from inside the house. Thanks
Further to last question:

So what voltage should the POE run at? 48V or 12V?

What mode of POE does it use? (A or B)
The manual states a voltage of 12-24V which is not in the normal POE range of 48-52V.

Please clarify or add to the spec sheet what the power supply requirements are.

Does this camera need a PoE splitter if i intend to power from a PoE capable switch, or can the power jack be ignored if there is power coming down the network cable?
What nvr can use for 4 cameras?
What is the best NVR to use with this camera, home use, remote access including iphone app.

Fantastic little camera. The build quality is brilliant with the base been made from die cast aluminium and by the looks of it so is the main housing.
