There really are many things to like about the Alarm.com VC826 Outdoor Dome Camera. Its 1080p recording quality is excellent, and it can really capture some clear video. This is extremely important if you ever need to identify a suspect or confirm certain types of activity. The device has a vandal-resistant exterior casing that will prevent others from tampering or disabling the device. The ADC-VC826 is both waterproof and dust-tight with an IP67 rating, so you can rely on it to work in pretty much any weather. The camera supports power over ethernet (PoE), which makes it easier to provide power. It also includes IR night vision, which makes it easier for the camera to work in a dark environment. It also has a discreet and compact design at just 4.4" by 3.2". Also the device is surprisingly easy to install.
There aren't many negatives to the ADC-VC826, but there are some to mention. For one, it cannot do WIFI without the use of an ethernet converter. Really, your best option with this device is to just use PoE. And if the IP router doesn't support PoE, then a PoE injector should be used. Another thing to consider is that it can only be used with Alarm.com. If you do not have Alarm.com, then you cannot use this camera. But overall, this camera has so many positives that it deserves 5 Stars.
