Lynn, good one. This is increasing difficult as more and more low cost cameras are going PoE only.
Hikvision has a minidome with both power options. So does Dahua I believe.
Do you have a brand preference? I believe Axis M series do not. Same for Sony.
Btw, manufacturers / reps, feel free to recommend your products. Make sure they:
(1) are really minidomes and
(2) support both PoE and 12V or 24V power

I've seen plenty that do, but are we talking about the camera automatically switching back and forth between the two? I think the one's I've seen you need to move a dip switch to select.
Panasonic wv-sw355, supports simultaneous POE and additional separate DC power input. The DC input acts as secondary reduntant Power supply and the camera can automaticaly store video on SD card should communication to the server fail.
Great form factor, extremely well built, excelent WDR, works well with Gentec, you would love it.
Rukmini - thanks! I can test that scenario in my lab!
Have a look at our product. Its great quality at a much lower cost then the Axis or Panasonic model. Supports PoE, 12VDC and has an SD card slot. 2MP with IR LEDs as well. Dimensions: 4.7ø x 3.5” (120ø x 88mm) Mini Dome Link
Thank you Rummini,
Good questions, however our dome camera provides the power options manily for convenience, so therefore they are not hot-failover. We sell through distribution so you should be able to find this product around ~$225 at major distributors.
Item #1 is true in which in the event of a loss of PoE power, the camera will default back to 12VDC power. In addition, the camera can be programmed to record to the SD card upon loss of network connectivity.
DVTEL's Quasar line supports both POE and local power and will record to a microSD card.
