The Watec WAT-232S Low-Light Day/Night Camera, coupled with low-light sensitivity, delivers excellent image quality required for demanding 24-hour security environments. In addition, WAT-232S produces clear images even in areas with a minimum illumination of 0.02 lux, making it ideal for night surveillance. Thanks to its 1/3" interline CCD image sensor, the camera can capture images at resolution more than 540 TVL.

Advanced features such as Backlight Compensation and Auto White Balance ensure clear images despite changes in the lighting conditions. The back focus ring lets you easily adjust the back ring to accommodate various lenses for optimum utilization of the camera. Plus, WAT-232S features an external trigger input for activating image capture via an external device.
