Looks like a crappy, residential only, add on to an alarm system. Yes/no?

DSC does not make then, but buys them from Sercomm.
This camera is essentially the same as the iControl iCamera-1000, also carried by ADT under the same name for Pulse.
It is a <$150 USD camera built to maximize RMR in a home automation system, and is not compatible with a recorder outside the original home security service unless they give you the default login/pwd to reconfigure firmware.
Even the $29 ONVIF camera can be added to a VMS. This one is locked down.

The spec sheet is behind a login, but here are the vitals:
- 1/5" imager
- F2.0 lens
- 60 degree view angle
- 640 x 480 resolution (Standard Def)
Again, pretty mediocre. This link gives some screenshots. While the author sounds impressed, he is trying to sell them. The camera might be good for bedroom monitoring, but would be very weak outdoors.
The camera simply is not built to be a strong performer and is pricey given the specs.
Hope that helps.
