ELAN IP Varifocal Lens 4MP Outdoor Bullet Camera with IR (White)

The EL-IP-OBV4-WH is a 4MP IP bullet camera with back light compensation and enhanced IR illumination. Nice/ELAN Discovery enables it to be provisioned in an Nice/ELAN Surveillance system with just a few clicks.


The EL-IP-OBV4-WH IP bullet camera – enabled with Nice/ELAN Discovery – is an exceptional option for outdoor applications, and also works well for indoor applications that need to view a designated area. Bullet cameras are flexible in terms of placement, and can be mounted on the wall, soffit, the overhang of the roof, or under the eave. The unique property of a bullet camera means it’s designed for monitoring a relatively smaller swath of area such as the driveway, garage, front door, back door, stairway, hallway, entryway, etc. Bullet cameras are easy and quick to install because they cater multiple mounting options. Bullet cameras also excel in maneuverability; once mounted, they can be pointed to cover the desired area.

ELAN Discovery
Find, provision and install the Nice/ELAN Surveillance cameras with just a few clicks.

All Nice/ELAN Surveillance products are embedded with the Nice/ELAN beacon, making them the fastest and easiest surveillance products to install in an Nice/ELAN system. Just connect the NVR and cameras to the network and Nice/ELAN Discovery takes it from there. Its Auto-Discover and Auto-Configure feature scans your network, including wireless connections, allowing you to provision and install devices with just a click. We’ve eliminated the need to individually log into each device for setup, saving you substantial time.

Full Control within the Nice/ELAN UI
Peace of mind from a new level of control

ELAN Surveillance delivers a seamless control system integration that rises above the competition. With full control of both the NVR and cameras from a single user interface, your customer no longer needs to switch between the Nice/ELAN control app and their surveillance app. No other surveillance systems can match this level of control integration.

Outdoor and Cold Weather Durability

ELAN outdoor cameras are IP66 rated and built to withstand nature’s strongest environments. Durable by design, this camera is rated to -40 Fahrenheit. Instead of using a cheaper fiberglass PCB requiring an internal heater as found in competitive brands, Nice/ELAN cameras use a multi-layer aluminum PCB. Along with an improved LED layout, these features help dissipate heat evenly throughout the camera without creating hotspots. This helps increase camera life expectance and reduces power consumption.

Powerful IR illumination
At night, the camera needs to accurately identify an object as soon as possible. With an IR illumination range of 30m, Nice/ELAN Surveillance cameras provide the homeowner with level of security they require.

Back Light Compensation
A dimly lit room with a bright background affects a camera’s ability to accurately identify an object. Nice/ELAN’s proprietary technology allows our cameras to automatically adjust the sensors’ exposure level by ignoring intense areas of light. This allows effective identification of an object during both live view and recorded playback.

Sense Up and Sense Up+
ELAN cameras automatically adjust the shutter speed to control the amount of light to be absorbed by the sensor. This is especially beneficial in low light environments when a lower shutter speed allows more light to be captured.

Varifocal Lens
ELAN cameras equipped with a varifocal lens provide added installation flexibility. With a focal range of 2.8mm to 12mm, cameras can be adjusted to have a wide field-of-view – up to a 95° angle of view – for use in large open areas. They also allow for a narrower field-of-view – as low as 33° – for use in long driveways or path ways where a zoomed image is needed.
