The Alarm.com V721W is an outdoor wireless IP camera with night vision up to 40 feet (12 meters) at 0 Lux. It is a 720P HD camera that supports 1280x800, 600x400, 300x200 recording resolutions using either H.264 or MPEG-4 compression. Alarm.com also offers the ADC-722W which offers up to 1080P resolution. The V721W does NOT have an ethernet RJ-45 jack, nor does it support POE (power over ethernet) like the ADC-V720 outdoor POE camera. The V721W connects wirelessly to a local WIFI network using WPS (WIFI protected setup) or through the WIFI access point mode.
If your router has a WPS button that is the easiest way to enroll the camera. Otherwise you can follow the step in the install guide to connect to the temporary network broadcasted from the camera. In other words, you do not need WPS on your router but it does makes the enrollment process a bit easier.
Any Alarm.com camera requires a monthly service with Alarm.com. You can setup Video only service or bundle it into your monthly monitoring rate (assuming you have an Alarm.com compatible panel) like our no contract Self Platinum or Platinum plans. Either way this camera is designed for viewing live or recorded footage through the Alarm.com app or web login. The Alarm.com SVR-100 offers a robust NVR solution that can hold up to 4TB of data. These recordings are saved locally and can be viewed and downlaoded remotely.
There is an included transformer (12VDC @ 1.5A) with a 10 foot power supply cable and a male DC barrel connector. There is also a 5 foot dongle on the back of the camera that splits into a Y-cable with two ends: a female DC port for the barrel plug and an IO terminal block. The terminal block is designed to connect a wired sensor to the camera and trigger video uploads to Alarm.com.
Since outdoor environments do vary Alarm.com specifies that this camera will only operate normally in the following temperature range: -4° ~ 122° F (-20°C ~ 50°C). The weatherproof case has an IP-66 rating with UV protection. The end user can toggle between high, medium and low resolution for live viewing and recording.
