Dahua Technology 6AE530UNI 5MP IP Outdoor Network PTZ Dome Security Camera with Night Vision





5MP IR 30x PTZ

The 5MP IR PTZ camera features a 1/1.9-in. CMOS imager with a 30x optical zoom lens and auto-tracking for long-distance video surveillance.

The PTZ features H.265 video compression, reducing bandwidth and storage requirements without sacrificing video quality. As a result, high quality video is maintained without straining the network.

Thanks to the camera’s true day/night IR cut filter, Smart IR, and defog, images are crisp and clear in both day or nighttime applications.

For a more efficient surveillance system, the camera features onboard analytics (IVS) so that violations to user-set rules can be quickly identified.

The camera’s Smart IR technology adjusts the intensity of the camera’s infrared LEDs to compensate for the distance of an object, preventing the IR LEDs from whitening out images as they come closer to the camera. This series is suitable for indoor or outdoor applications.

  • IP67 Ingress Protection and IK10 Vandal Resistance
  • Supports Hi-PoE

Intelligent Video System (IVS)

The camera comes with IVS analytics algorithms that deliver intelligent functions to monitor a scene for tripwire violations, intrusion, and abandoned or missing objects. This algorithm lets the camera respond to events in a specific area. In addition to scene analytics, the camera supports face detection to quickly capture a face and upload the image to a server. The camera also offers tamper detection by recognizing a dramatic scene change and generating a warning message to inspect the camera.


Auto-tracking controls the pan/tilt/zoom actions of the camera to automatically track an object in motion and to keep it in the scene. The tracking action can be triggered manually or automatically by defined rules. Once a rule is triggered, the camera can zoom in and track the defined target automatically.


Utilizing Dahua’s algorithm technology, the Defog feature dynamically adjusts the camera’s contrast settings to provide improved image quality in scenes affected by fog, smog, mist, smoke, or other low-contrast interference.


With a temperature range of -40 to 158°F, the camera is designed for extreme temperature environments. The camera complies with the IK10 impact rating. Subjected to rigorous dust and water immersion tests, the IP67 rating indicates it is suitable for outdoor applications.


The camera conforms to the ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) and PSIA (Physical Security Interoperability Alliance) specifications, ensuring interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer.

Other Features

  • Facial detection to detect and capture a snapshot of a human face in a defined area within a scene
  • Heat map for generating a visual representation of data
  • Auto-tracking to control pan/tilt/zoom actions of the camera to automatically track an object in motion and to keep it in the scene
