"Weatherproof" and "vandal proof" are two main keywords for an outdoor dome camera. Although ACTi modestly rates its weatherproof cameras with IP66 rating, you will get much more than that – TCM-7011 dome camera can actually dive under water for unlimited amount of time and keep functioning perfectly.
ACTi modestly calls the TCM-7011 as vandal proof, however, you can even use your car to drive over it, and nothing will happen to it – it will keep shooting the video as you drive over it.
Two other dome cameras, ACM-7411 and TCM-7411 are sharing the same mechanical design; therefore they have the same physical capabilities as TCM-7011.
