Alarm.com ADC-VC725 - Outdoor 720P POE Mini Bullet Camera with Night Vision Reviews
Submitted on 12/29/2020 Alarm Grid
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
