amcrest spotlight cameras

It is incomplete that Amcrest introduced various security camera models so that’s why it complements new security camera model with spotlight that has been around widely available on the market today. Amcrest acd2w is the first Amcrest’s products with spotlight model.

Amcret ACD2W

This product is designed with a bullet model, wifi b/g/n connection single band @2.4Ghz and the good thing is that it is Onvif compliant so that it can connect with any third party Onvif NVR system in your wifi network. You may compare it with Arlo Ultra which can only connect to Arlo Ultra base station.

1080p @30 fps

It is unfortunate that Amcrest released its first debut in spotlight cams model that is limited up to 1080p resolution while Arlo, Swann and other few vendors have released similar models but with 4k resolution. But wait, Arlo with 4k resolution can only deliver frame rate of up to 15 fps (frame per second), this is because Arlo is specifically designed for wire-free (battery powered, no plug-in) so it does not allow the full real time frame rate @ 30 fps. While Amcrest acd2w provides full 1080p @ 30 fps real time.

Night vision

Amcrest acd2w supports night vision with excellent image quality and also features built-in spotlight that can illuminate an area as far as 33 ft (10m) at night with wide viewing angles up to 133 degrees (diagonal). Amcrest should also apply color night vision technology like in almost all the latest models of Lorex security cameras (see also Amcrest vs Lorex security cameras). Even Arlo Ultra and Swann have also applied color night vision to their latest series.

Other features

Besides the advantages above, Amcrest ACD2W is also equipped with other features that are almost the same as most WiFi home security cameras such as two way audio with built-in microphone and speaker, micro SD card memory storage up to 128GB and WiFi connection 802.11b/g/n.
