We also like the fact that the camera as an IP67 weatherproof rating for outdoor use. It can withstand virtually any outdoor temperature, which adds upon its great versatility. And the ADC-VC726 has tremendous IR night vision capabilities, as it is rated for capturing activity from up to 95 feet away in the dark.
There are not many downsides to the Alarm.com ADC-VC726. One issue is that the camera must use ethernet connectivity for accessing an IP network. In other words, the camera cannot connect directly with a WIFI network. This is relatively common for commercial-grade cameras, but it is still a limitation nonetheless. However, you can overcome this issue by using a compatible ethernet to WIFI bridge with PoE capabilities, such as the Alarm.com ADC-W110. One other issue with the Alarm.com ADC-VC726 is that it can only be used with Alarm.com. You cannot use it with a different platform, such as Total Connect 2.0.
