Milesight AI 5MP Motorised Mini Dome First Impressions Very Positive.

Milesight AI 5MP Motorised Mini Dome – Milesight’s MS-C5375-PD AI 5MP motorised mini dome is a robust compact NDAA-compliant PoE turret camera distributed locally by LSC and we’ve been looking forward to an opportunity to see how capable it is in the field.

Before we get stuck in, let’s take a quick look at specifications. This camera is IP67-rated against water (that’s submersible) and dust, IK10-rated against impact, has a ½.8-inch sensor, a 5MP resolution with a maximum of 2592 x 1944 pixels at 30ips. It has a 2.7-13.5mm motorised lens, WDR of 120dB, integrated 50m IR and supports 256GB SD cards.

When it comes to video content analysis the camera can handle region entrance, region exiting, advanced motion detection, tamper detection, line crossing, loitering, human detection, people counting, object left, and object removed. Made of rugged poly and cast alloy, the Milesight AI 5P motorised dome is a tough little beast with nice hand feel. Its modest size means it’s unobtrusive, too.

I set the camera up in the country – this is a brutal location with 40C plus in summer, -10 in winter, wild weather and rampaging insects in abundance. My compact network is fronted by Starlink, which sometimes peaks here at close to 300Mbps upload and the camera is being supported by a TP-Link TL-SG1005P 5-Port Gigabit desktop switch and viewed on an i7 Surface Pro with 8Mb RAM via the Milesight camera browser.

Because we’re on Starlink at this location – and I fully endorse this as the best service in rural applications that require maximum uptime at the expense of scrimping on cost – it takes a while to work out that I can’t use the default IP address but need a Starlink compatible range. Once this is established (thanks, Chris), driving the camera through the browser is fun.

First, I go through and tweak settings – WDR on, noise reduction on, audio on, I ease resolution back a little – my screen is 1920 x 1080p, IR to auto. Looking at the images I can see they are warm, colour saturation is good. I hop into full resolution and the sharpness increases significantly – zooming at this resolution I zoom out of my angle of view – camera placement is going to be important here.

Barrel distortion is pronounced at full wide, depth of field is good at full HD and much better at 5MP. This is not all that easy a scene for the camera. There’s very strong sunlight just above the roofline then deep shade under the trees. The Milesight AI 5MP contrives to iron these challenges out with WDR activated, albeit with a warm tone to the scene.

What’s going to be fun with this camera is taking advantage of the huge depth of field to explore the motorised zoom and that monstrous 50m IR – stand by for SEN’s full review of the Milesight AI 5MP Motorised Mini Dome coming soon!

In the meantime, you can find full specifications for the camera here or read more SEN news here.
