The Vivotek IP8332 Network Bullet Camera is designed for diverse outdoor applications. Equipped with a 1/4" CMOS image sensor enabling resolutions of up to 1MP (1280x800) at up to 30 fps, the IP8332 is an all-in-one outdoor camera capable of capturing high quality and high resolution video.
In order to adapt to constantly changing outdoor lighting conditions, the IP8332 features a removable IR-cut filter as well as IR
illuminators effective up to 15 metres for superior image quality around the clock. For protection against harsh outdoor environments, the camera is encased in an IP66-rated housing and weather-proof casing to withstand rain and dust.
The IP8332 supports the industry-standard H.264 compression technology, drastically reducing file sizes and conserving valuable
network bandwidth. With H.264, MPEG-4, and MJPEG compatibility all included, multiple streams can be simultaneously transmitted in
any of these formats at different resolutions, frame rates, and image qualities for versatile platforms. The streams can also be individually configured to meet different needs or bandwidth constraints, thereby further optimising bandwidth and storage.
Additional features include tamper detection, 802.3af compliant PoE, SD/SDHC card slot, and VIVOTEK's 32-channel recording software.

Once you have setup a NAS share how do you then delete or modify the details? I don't seem to be able to do this and as noted in the answer of another question posted you can only add one NAS share.
Question by: Daniel on 11 Aug 2013 11:45:27
Before deleting/modifying the NAS setting, you must uncheck the NAS from the event you created. Once you uncheck and click save, you will be able to delete or modify the NAS setting.

Can I use this camera to monitor number plates at night time.
It will be placed max 3m away from oncoming cars.
The cars will stop in front of the camera before proceeding.
Will the headlights of the car disrupt the cameras capability of viewing the number plate?
Question by: Mitchell on 30 Jan 2013 10:16:19
You may have some success.
It will be dazzled by headlamps.
The only way to be sure of 24hr number plate reads is to use a specialist camera e.g. search '5000' in our webshop.
Specialist ANPR cameras only admit infra-red light produced by the camera and retro-reflected from the number plate. All you see is a monochrome image of the plate.
Furthermore, careful selection of the appropriate camera/lens to deliver only a narrow view concentrated on the target area is best practice (the Vivotek IP8332 has a fixed 60° horizontal field of view, a camera with an adjustable lens such as the ACTi TCM-1231 or the 2MP Vivotek IP7361 would be better).
The camera position is also very important to achieve an image that is not too skewed, by placing the camera not too far to the side, and not too high up - cameras fixed low (in bollards) work very well for getting close to and relatively in-line with approaching cars.
You should always target the front number plate - they are cleanest, and most predictably placed.
You should have one camera per lane of traffic only.
Hope that helps ...

I bought one of these early this year (from another supplier) as an upgrade from the IP7330 (which I have used for several years). I installed it the same place and connected to my LAN in the same way as the old IP7330. However, I found that when powered off and then powered back on the IP8332 it frequently failed to reconnect, often coming up on install Wizard with a spurious 169 IP address rather than the 192.168 address which the LAN port has allocated. In the end I returned it for a refund. I'm sure that this was a timing problem in the Firmware, do you know if this has been fixed? I love the camera spec but am reluctant to buy another if this problem is still there.
Question by: Malcolm on 18 May 2012 10:14:10
We sell loads of this IP8332 model, it is a bestseller.
There was a period where we experienced some firmware issues, in particular we saw problems with the timing of when the camera switched to monochrome night-time mode, and the image performance at night. Those issues were all resolved months ago, and we're not aware of any current issues (and if there were any issues we would have heard something from our many customers using them).
Hope that helps ...

I'm less interested in the image ,than the data -i.e is the image a '1' or a '2' etc - the requirement is to identify machine components - any one of a max of 12 pieces. - the data will be stored in a MS Sequel server data base - I don't need to store the image.
Question by: Robin on 11 Apr 2012 15:04:00
To do this based upon a video input is probably going to need something akin to Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), which would be a fairly expensive solution. Perhaps better to use some other method of identifying the components such as barcodes or coded magnets ...?

Just a couple of questions, with a 32gb micro sd card installed primarily for night time motion detection recording how many hours of footage or possible days worth of recording do you think i would get? also does the camera record in mono or colour?
Question by: Patrick on 8 Sep 2011 10:30:29
If you are only recording clips when Video Motion Detection (VMD) triggers then you will get weeks & weeks of clips on a 32GB card, in fact 32GB is probably overkill. As a guide, a VGA resolution camera recording at a rate of 3 frames per second continuously will fill an 8GB card in approx. 7 days (this Vivotek IP8332 is 1MP resolution, so would fill the 8GB card in maybe six days at those same settings - recording continuously).
Only monochrome cameras can use infra-red lighting, so, given that it gets sufficiently dark in the area that you are monitoring to cause the camera to switch into night-time/monochrome mode, then you will only record in monochrome overnight. If you supplement the area's illumination with white light, then you'll get colour video overnight.
Hope that helps ...

Can I configure this IP camera to record to a NAS box on my local network
Question by: John on 14 Jul 2011 11:24:26
Yes, these Vivotek IP cameras allow many options. Take a look in the manual for this camera and search for Network Storage, you'll see that you can route recordings to a folder on your NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive by means of local IP address (or by filepath name) and the folder where you want to store your recordings.
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 14 Jul 2011 11:24:26
The camera supports a SD card, and it dosent have to be a Micro-SD according to the manual (I think you can use a SD adapter if you have a Micro-SD card available)
Question by: Caspersen on 25 Oct 2010 11:43:15
Actually, the Vivotek IP8332 bullet camera will only accept micro-SD cards. The slot for the memory card is small and will only accept the micro cards.
The slot for the card is at the rear end of the bullet camera. Be careful to completely loosen-off the grip of the waterproof cable gland, and you can then unscrew the back of the cylinder (taking care that the cable does not rotate as you unscrew the cylinder end). You will find the micro memory card slot under one of the pcbs, at the rear of the camera assembly.
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 25 Oct 2010 11:43:15
After going through the PDF manual it looks like it can only record to either SD or NAS not both?
Can you confirm this?
I would like to have the recording on both the SD and the NAS so if anyone deletes or destroys the NAS I have video on the SD for backup.
Taken from manual page 84:
Destination: You can select the SD card or network storage that was set up for the recorded video files.
Question by: Jack on 10 Oct 2010 09:40:04
I've tried to get clarification on this from Vivotek in Taiwan, but none has been forthcoming. My best guess would be that it is as you read the manual i.e. the camera can record to the SD card or to a NAS box. I would suspect that it can only be configured to write to one place at a time.
However, if your NAS box is of the QNAP or Synology type and is actually running its own CCTV recording software, then it would be able to record (as well as recordings being made on the SD card), because it is actually taking the video feed/IP stream.
The same would apply if you use a dedicated Network Video Recorder (NVR), such as a QNAP VioStor.
Or if you were running Vivotek's CCTV recording software on a PC (or any other PC CCTV software).
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 10 Oct 2010 09:40:04
can this camera capture images and video on a sd card without a pc on 24 hours a day?
Question by: John on 2 Oct 2010 15:34:36
Yes, for more information on local storage see page 85 of the Vivotek IP8332 camera manual - there's a link to download this manual on our product web page for the IP8332 (it's a big file so it will take a little while to download).
The same manual applies to the Vivotek IP8330.
NB you need a micro-SD card.
