Description

The Alarm.com ADC-VC725 is a 720P HD mini bullet style outdoor security camera. Similar to the VC825 dome camera, this device requires an ethernet connection and can be powered by POE or with a separately purchased transformer. It is a great camera for use with the Alarm.com service.

If you choose to power the ADC-VC725 via POE, it requires a POE network switch or a POE injector. The POE switch injects the power directly into the ethernet cable without the need for a POE injector. If you are connecting your camera to a normal network, you can simply purchase the injector and connect it in-line with the ethernet connection to the camera.

The ADC-VC725 was specifically designed with outdoor use in mind. Its IP66 rating makes it weatherproof and dust-tight, allowing it to withstand whatever nature can dish out. The 720P recording quality will work just fine for most applications. The camera also works great in dark environments thanks to its IR night vision range of up to 95 feet. The device comes complete with a camera stand, mounting hardware and waterproof lens cap.

The Alarm.com ADC-VC725 is a mini bullet camera for commercial use. It can record footage at up to 720p in quality. This is a somewhat older camera, and it has since been discontinued in favor of newer models. But the camera offers some cool features, including the ability to be used outdoors, and it can even utilize Power Over Ethernet (PoE) for easy wiring setup. PoE means that you only need to connect one wire for both network and power, rather than having power and internet connectivity set up separately. If you come across a used model of the ADC-VC725, then it should still work fine. But with newer and better models available, we don't really recommend going out of your way to get it. We give the ADC-VC725 a 4-Star rating.

There are positive aspects regarding the ADC-VC725. For one, it has an IP66 weatherproof rating, and it can be used safely outdoors. We like how the camera has an IR night vision rating of up to 95, as the camera can really perform well in a darker environment. And PoE support is a big plus, as it makes it easier to set up the camera. You also have the option of using a standalone transformer that you would need to purchase separately. But there are also some downsides for the camera. For one, it is discontinued, and you are unlikely to find it new anywhere. The fact that this camera is only 720p is somewhat of a downside, as there are plenty of newer cameras that feature 1080p recording capabilities and advanced features like High Dynamic Range, which is absent on this camera. But these downsides aside, we are still able to give the ADC-VC725 a score of 4 Stars, because it is still a pretty decent model.

Good: Use Outdoors, PoE, 95 Feet IR Night Vision

Bad: Discontinued, 720p, Lacks Advanced Features

Bottom Line: 4 Stars
