Rugged Design To Withstand All Weather Conditions

The TX242 IP is a 1080p high definition, intelligent, wide dynamic range IP camera that is compact in size and light weight. The camera produces stunningly clear images in the most demanding conditions. Wide Dynamic Range technology provides class leading imaging performance. The image capture and processing system provides high-quality pictures with enhanced dynamic range that significantly improves image quality in scenes consisting of both bright and dark areas.
