H.264 1080p megapixel IP dome camera [1] .

These cameras work great depending on your firmware, the following firmwares are known to work with Zoneminder:

V5.0.2 build 130805
V5.3.0 build 150513

There are multiple ways to connect these cameras to Zoneminder, either with Remote, Ffmpeg or Libvlc. But thanks to Zoneminder v1.28 or higher and the complete rebuild to the RTP receiver, the best way to connect these cameras are by using Remote. This method cuts out transcoding and drastically cuts down on CPU usage and any smudging effect caused by transcoding (Ffmpeg or Libvlc).
