Introducing the Height Strip Camera
Looking to capture a face shot of a fleeing thief? Introducing the CE-HSC1QHD from Clinton Electronics— a 4MP EX-SDI Covert Height Strip Camera. Height strip cameras are beneficial at convenience stores, retail stores, and banks because they allow eyewitnesses to rapidly establish the height of a fleeing suspect while recording facial details on camera.
Reliable Facial Identification
The CE-HSC1QHD is designed to be mounted at the entrance or exit and provides clear facial details even when the subject is wearing a hat or hoodie. These critical facial images are often impossible to acquire with typical, ceiling-mounted cameras.

4MP EX-SDI Camera
The CE-HSC1QHD comes equipped with a 4MP EX-SDI camera that produces a clear image in any lighting condition. The camera’s wide-angle 2.8mm lens provides a 113° horizontal field of view.
In addition to EX-SDI, the Height Strip camera can also output HD Analog or Analog signals through a secondary BNC output.
Adjustable Camera Height
Choose between three camera mounting heights: 4 feet 6 inches, 5 feet 6 inches, or 6 feet 4 inches—and install the camera sled with our tool-free design.
Thanks to the high-contrast colored height indicators at 4 feet, 5 feet, and 6 feet, additional CCTV cameras facing the door and eyewitnesses can quickly establish the height of a fleeing individual.
The CE-HSC1QHD fits standard 1.75″ door frames and has top, bottom, and rear cable entry options with 1/2″ or 3/4″ EMT conduit knock-outs.

How can CCTV surveillance cameras deter crime?
Do CCTV cameras alone deter theft? Well, that depends. Are the cameras visible or hidden? Most can agree that cameras are only useful in changing criminal behavior when visible to the subject. Studies also show that CCTV surveillance cameras are most effective when combined with other crime-reducing methods such as improved lighting.
At Clinton Electronics, we are continually seeking ways to improve camera technology and enhance the theft deterrence factor.
With the rise of LED technology, it’s now possible to incorporate high-power white LEDs into a CCTV camera. The advantage of this is two-fold. When triggered, white LEDs allow the camera to see color; this helps identify the subject’s details after-the-fact. The second advantage is a bit more obvious: security motion lights are an effective crime deterrent.
The new CE-VX2QHD-WL vandal dome camera features two ultra-bright white LEDs that trigger when motion is detected. These high-power white LEDs are perfect for illuminating areas like the driveway, back porch, or sidewalk.
The addition of white LEDs enable you to see motion events in color and help deter crime by scaring off unwanted trespassers.
Users can also select three different illumination modes in the OSD menu of the camera: Motion On, Motion Flash + On, and Constant. Each mode offers flexible control over brightness, duration, and motion detection sensitivity.
Unlike traditional security lights or motion detectors, the CE-VX2QHD-WL camera uses video motion detection to detect motion. With video motion detection, the user can create motion detection zones using the OSD menu.
Customizable motion detection allows the camera to ignore high motion detection areas such as windblown trees or busy streets and be tuned to detect motion in desired zones only.
If no movement is present, the camera returns to the standard IR LED mode. Thanks to IR Shield Technology, the CE-VX2QHD-WL delivers a clear image even when rain and dust are present on the surface of the dome. The photos below show the difference between using white LEDs and IR LEDs at night.
Motion detection triggers White LEDs.
The camera returns to IR LED mode after the motion event.
In conclusion, not only can cameras with white light LEDs improve night time images they can also play an active role in deterring crime by scaring off trespassers and would-be criminals.
