Camera Lens

Both Secuplug and Lorex record in 1080p HD resolution while Foscam is slightly lower resolution (960p). With standard HD 1080p resolution the optical zoom will be taken account. All the three products offer optical zoom but different zoom factor. See that Lorex allows you zoom in with two types of zoom both optical (12x) and digital zoom (16x), when 12x optical zoom is not enough you still can utilize digital zoom for much longer distance object to capture with clear and sharp detail. Typically digital zoom produces image with noise result, however Lorex with its technology can reduce the noise significantly.

For more optical zoom factor you may consider any PTZ products with 20x optical zoom such as Amcrest IP2M-850, or 30x optical zoom such as Q-See PTZ camera. See also top 5 IP camera with optical zoom.
